Being a critic is a valuable experience that teaches you how to look at your own work more objectively.


#22

Do you think it helped you notice things to correct in your own stories? I imagine it would.


#23

Why are you so fast? Now you don’t get to answer my question. :joy:


#24

I’m half-mind reader and half-fast typer. :joy:


#25

I would love to have a mind like an editor’s. When I have someone (that actually edits) edit my word, they always find things that I would not have looked twice at


#26

Give me 50% of that skill, and I’ll be set for the future.


#27

Practice helps. Offering editing help to others will allow you to build up some skills.

You should see me at work. On some chapters I critique, I leave a comment on every sentence. :joy:

Typically, most chapters I critique get upwards of 100 comments in google docs.


#28

Nothing is more aggravating then writing something up, extensively–and then something trivial like your internet disconnecting screws you over.

Gets me every time.


#29

I almost screamed yesterday night when I didn’t see my work. It was just loading though haha


#30

This is probably a blessing for some, and a curse for others.

I personally invite anything interested in honing my skills. But not too sharp. We don’t want to cut anyone.

Or do we.


#31

So far, everyone I’ve critiqued for has been pleased with my feedback, which is nice.

yes let’s go pop all the balloons


#32

I once woke up to 150 comments. I was shook to the core


#33

On your story or in the Community?


#34

story


#35

I’m so happy for you. What’s it like up there?


#36

hHahah


#37

I’m just desperately waiting for a glow up


#38

I just thought of something. You know when people start a conversation with a question, but then get upset if they don’t get the answer that they wanted?

Why. Why even ask then?


#39

but instead I eat hot cheetos and beg my mom for more.l.


#40

I checked my clock, and it says your upcoming glow-up is scheduled for tomorrow.
