There appears to be some acrimony over our recent Meetup, and the crits that were presented. Please keep some things in mind: We are in this to help each other grow as writers. It is vital to utilize empathy (a quality that should be in no short supply among writers) when presenting critiques. We need to keep our comments constructive in nature. That said, developing rhino hide is also part of becoming a successful writer.
Personally, I will never shoot the message merely because I am put off by the messenger. If you tell me my story is flotsam, I will not take your lack of tact as a personal attack; I will simply ask you to elucidate. I would love to hear your thoughts on this issue. Don :)
