A Blog Tour: My Critique Partners Past

I’ve had quite a few critique partners over the years, most of them early on when I was trying out lots of different situations–groups, one on one, online, offline, etc–to see what worked best for me. A fun part of looking back over these relationships is realizing how many of the talented women I’ve critiqued with have gone on to sell books (most of us worked together while we were still unpublished). Here’s a little tour:

Nancy Warren

I’m starting to sound like a big name-dropper, aren’t I? Truly I’ve been lucky to critique with all these writers. Sometimes the critiquing relationships were short due to life circumstances, and sometimes they were long, but I gained valuable insights about my writing from all of them.

Am I forgetting anyone I’ve critiqued with who has a website? If so, let me know! My memory isn’t great, and I don’t want to leave anyone out.


  1. Weird. I don’t know why it does that. Nor do I know why Google’s little blurb about my website still displays info from when my second book was released, years and years ago.

  2. I don’t know If I said it already but …Excellent site, keep up the good work. I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks, 🙂

    A definite great read….

  3. If you are starting from scarcth and want to learn practical skills quickly, check your local Yellow Pages for Career Schools / Career Training. You will find technical schools that teach Web design in there (if you find schools for cosmetology, dental hygenists, etc. in the category, you’ve found the right section).However, you might want to get started by investing $ 20 in Building A Web Site for Dummies, which walks you through the process.
