A little buzz about Critique Groups... I gotta say, I love mine! I am fortunate to have a group of 5, all writing in the same genre (YA/Middle Grade)and all giving/taking in the most mutally satisfying way. There are always those moments when my nails are down to the nub, but for the most part, I take their advice as loving gifts aimed at lifting my manuscript to its full potential.
