I went through the critiques I received on Saturday. I like to give myself a day or two to breathe after the morning session.
There were five members present in my group Saturday. Two others had to bow out due to life issues. There were six in the second group.
I received three critiques from my group. Thankfully, two of the folk in the second group gave me critiques they had done. So I had a total of five critiques.
I was very careful to submit only two chapters with the total word count around 2,000. That way, I figured the members wouldn't be overwhelmed.
One of my private peeves about the group. Not everyone critiques. And yet, that is part of the agreement when you join the group.
I find I am frustrated beyond measure when I present a couple chapters and receive only five critiques when there are eleven members present.
Perhaps I don't want to receive more. Perhaps it's just as well that I carry on blindly.
Today was one of those days when I considered quitting writing for publishing. I am going back to writing a bit of fluff until after Thanksgiving. I think I need the break.
Yet, who will tell the Muse? *g*
Life is not a bowl of cherries. Or perhaps the cherries have pits.
