And other times!!! So, I posted last week, but 2 of my 3 paragraphs didn’t show up on the post. What I was going to say, is that I am critting a novel for a new member to one of my writers’ groups and there are definite challenges when critting someone you have only had one conversation with. One always wants to be helpful, but a writer has to be very thick-skinned when getting critted, and I don’t want to offend. I think the best bet is to tread lightly . . .
