The Top 10 Worst Types of Critique Partners | WritersDigest.com.

Oh man. It’s amusing, because many of these tropes apply to getting anyone, anywhere to read your novels, but… It’s also kind of fascinating, because I’ve never actually attended an in-person critique group for creative writing. (I mean, I’ve done group reviews in Journalism classes, but that’s different. People read stuff differently when they’re being graded on their ability to edit than they do when they’re trying to give open and free feedback on a novel.)

Now and then I’ve thought about finding a creative writing critique group in real life and… It just never happens. It’s just way easier to stick to my LiveJournal community.
