Critique thoughts & other things.

Lately I've been thinking that I might need a critique partner... I have no clue about how to find one, and to be honest I'm a little wary of having one... does that make sense?

I'm not one for reading reviews of my own work - always believing that as long as one person likes the story then I have done my job as an author... stupidly I decided to have a quick look-see, and what I saw was disheartening. I have since come to the conclusion I write sickly sweet stories - Hence the reason I'm thinking of a crit partner.
Then there is this whole other part of me that is stubborn and wants to do everything by myself... So you can see my dilemma.

Onto other thoughts: I'm slowly working my way through Toowoomba Boys: Dancing with Demons. It's taking longer than I thought because I'm not sure where the story is headed... At stages this past week I've had a total mind blank when even thinking on this situation.

I've been giving some serious thoughts to my future writing plans (not in the whole giving it up sort of way) more along the lines of what stories I really want to get out & what ones I can put on the back burner for awhile. All I know for sure is that after I finish my current WIP Lancaster's Way: A Different Way Of Seeing will be next.

I think I need a better schedule between writing and my life... and stop getting distracted by social media... I really need to shut that stuff down while I write (there done) now let's see how that works... Wish me luck.

  1. I can see where it would be hard to find someone. I hope you can do it though for you. Schedules are hard to keep up aren't they. I love getting on FB and "talking" I have missed getting on here with you and I am trying to get all my ducks in a row. I am trying to find a full time job or another job I need more money, lol don't we all. You need to write who ever is giving you the goods. We will be content with whatever you give.
