Critiques/Don't Be Prepared/Staying Limber on a Road Trip

1.  Have you ever been shattered by criticism of your writing? The Positive Writer shows how to give constructive criticism in a way that doesn't discourage or put down the writer. These are valuable tips for those who belong to critique groups or edit.

2.  Do you like a good devotional? Adelee Russell, at Rewritten, tells us, "Don't be Prepared." I don't know about you, but I'm a proactive sort of person, so I HAD to read this.

3.  Dena Netherton, at My Father's World, My Father's Words, talks about exercise on the road.

Writers:  Do you belong to a critique group? Please share your experience.

Readers:  How do you keep from getting stiff during long road trips?

When I was a part of a writing group, I once had a new story ready for critique. No one liked it. I felt each of them yelled at me. They found nothing good to say about it.

I eventually had to come away from that group when, for three weeks, the main topic was NOT about writing. The discussion came from one person,a strong- willed woman.
