A Good Critique

Recently, I showed other writers the scene I was so proud of. It’s still the best scene I’ve ever written…but what the other writers had to say about it are making it stronger. Among other things, the discussion that followed their critiques showed me that I need to more fully develop the mythology behind my story.

That’s the sign of a good critique–that it makes your work stronger, that it shows you the way to make your story richer, deeper and truer.
