National Hug Your Critique Partners Day

OK, I made it up. It's true in my world, though.

I've been with my group just under a year. The three of them are part cheerleaders, part drill Sargents, part wordsmiths, part editors. There's probably more parts, too.

If you don't have critique partners, beta readers, writing colleagues or whatever you choose to call the people who read your work first -- Go. Get. Some. And, you can't have mine.

Here's to you Laura, Natasha, and Jen. Happy Hug Your Critique Partners Day! I love you guys!

Jen said...

How fun!!! I just gathered a Critique Group and our first meet will be Wednesday and I'm pretty darn excited about it!

Tina Laurel Lee said...

Excellent idea!

There should be a day like this! My critique buddies know just how much to pick at my words and how much to cheer me on! I'm so thankful for them. :)

I wish I had some Beta readers/Critique partners. Then again my MS isn't really at that stage yet so I haven't been actively seeking them.

Kudos to all who have them, they certainly rock!

Matthew - get some CPs now before you're finished. They really help the process along the way...

Kris said...

Jen - have a good time with your group on Wednesday! We meet virtually, but it would be great to have face-to-face group!

Aubrie - thanks for the vote of confidence for NHYCP day! I'm going to lobby for it!

Thanks, Tina.

And, Laura and Nat - love you guys!

Absolutely Kris...I'm hoping that Heather Kelly is still going to want to read my dabblings...?

THANKS KRIS- it's just SO right to tell those who are close to us what they mean to us - good for you.
We should ALL do it more...

Elana Johnson said...

Aw, so sweet! And we should totally make this a day, and spread the love everywhere!

Kelly said...

Hurray for critique partners!!

Kris said...

Thanks Kelly, Elana and Ann Marie! I think I'll lobby to get it NHYCP Day on the calendar!
