This episode explores the difference between critique and criticism and why we (writers) need a critique. I’ve wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. I thought that meant putting words on paper in story format and that’s what I did with the first draft of Secrets of The Heart. Unfortunately, I had no idea what info dump was or show-don’t-tell. And my all-time favorite writing faux pas, passive voice. Critiques helped me understand those issues and how to avoid and/or correct them. It also includes a short excerpt from Chapter Three of Secrets of The Heart.
