The best partner tells you gently in the firm tones of a friend and teacher that your beloved manuscript sucks.Think of them like a tool that fine-tunes an instrument, carves the finishing scroll on a wooden plaque, that last brush-stroke of a painting.
Without them, your MS is incomplete because you can never look at your manuscript with an objective eye.To those who submitted this week, look at the ones who critiqued your work. Is there someone who you believe would make a good match for your style? If so, go to their website, see what they have done and accomplished.
If they have potential and seem a good fit, contact them, see if they feel the same.
I sure will.
Tomorrow I will announce the winner of the Tiny Contest.
