I understand now why critiquing is so important. I’ve been working on my WIP for close to 3 years and you can get so close that its impossible to see the little things and sometimes the big things too. I have to thank my critique partners at FFnP a chapter of RWA. They are invaluable and a really nice group of people. I’ve edited half the book, concentrating on POV. It’s hard. I think its a stupid rule, done properly you should be able to have more than one POV in a scene but until I’m an established author, I have to follow the rules before I can break them.
I’ve entered two pitch contest and I think I have a better than decent chance. I’ll now soon. I’ve also joined Creativity Cauldron on yahoo. TTyl
