Kristen Lamb asks, “Does the person give back? Critique partners should be partners. I’ve had writers who took and took for months. They wanted me to plot, then re-plot, then they had a new and BETTER idea they needed “help” plotting. Never once did it occur to them, that we hadn’t talked about my book in months.”
Oh, yes, I have had this experience. How much time did we all spend on that person’s writing, while my poor little story was left without any comments or helpful suggestions. Let’s all give as much as we get in our critique groups. Nobody wants to be a vampire, do they?
Thanks for your enlightened blog, Kristen Lamb.
