    Article on Giving a Critique

    Discussion in 'The Art of Critique' started by TWErvin2, Jul 27, 2008.

    WritingForum.org folks,

    Fiction Factor published my article Don’t Hesitate to Offer a Critique.

    It idea for it originated from discussions that take place, such as on this forum, about new writers concerned about critting another writer's work. Take a look if you get the chance. Hope it's useful.

    The Plight and mdf92, I'm glad it was a relevant/helpful article and that you took the time to read it.

    Cogito, you must be a subscriber to Fiction Factor's newsletter. :) And thanks for the good word about the article. It was written to give a little guidance and to encourage new writers to step out and crit the work of other writers.

    I really like the article, especially that you stressed a couple times that there is no 'right' way to critique.

    I am indeed a subscriber, ever since I noticed how many articles you have ended up quoting from it (several of which were written by some Ervin guy).

    It's an excellent resource, published monthly, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to hear the perspective of the writer "in the trenches."
