|Writing is very personal. We write from the inside out, pouring our heart into our words. It's often difficult to accept criticism, even when we know it's constructive. For that reason, here are some points to consider:
*Read the manuscript carefully to get an overall view
*Balance the positive comments with the negative
*Give an honest critique in an encouraging way
*If change is needed, try to find a fixable suggestion
In this thread we can discuss different points to look for within a writing, and ways to give positive feedback to the author. Once we learn to give and take, we can be more comfortable with critiquing and with being critiqued.
