Yes, yes and yes. I find it's all too easy to fall in love with my own writing. I NEED feedback, the eyes of other writers and readers, to be able to step back and be objective.
Yes. I have two recently-revised novels but no new project at this time.
Yes, assuming the crit is in the spirit of being helpful. I'm always grateful for honest responses.
Yes. I've participated in writing groups for many years.
I've been writing novels for a while. Currently have two that I'm trying to get agents for. One is a crime novel, the other is "speculative" fiction. I'm in another writing group with slim membership, so I'd like to meet other local writers.
Very good, but at the moment, there are too many participants for maximum utility. Time constraints are part of the problem. One way to mitigate the problem is for participants to email their offerings in advance, have the critiquers do their homework and come in prepared to comment. The drawback is the authors don't get that eye-and-ear-opening experience of reading the work aloud to other writers.
