On Critiques and Revision
It's no secret that I adore Darcy Pattison -- author, revision expert, and writer advocate extraordinaire. I met Darcy weeks before signing with my agent and consider her May B.'s fairy godmother. It's because of Darcy I picked up Libba Bray's A GREAT AND TERRIBLE BEAUTY and Kirby Larson's HATTIE BIG SKY. It's because of Darcy I've ordered a copy of ART AND FEAR, a book she shared at her revision retreat that speaks to the insecurities the creative life magnifies.
I'm in the midst of preparing for an SCBWI-NM Schmooze about our annual writing retreat and the critiques that will be a part of the weekend. Once again, I've found myself drawn to what Darcy has to say. Click through to read her wonderful series on feedback and revision.
