DAY 16 – COMMUNITY
Sophie recently joined her first critique group. She was leery, afraid she’d come across like an idiot, but began commenting and offering suggestions to improve the manuscripts. She also bit her lip and submitted her stories for critique.
Sophie saw that her suggestions, for the most part, were being used in the revisions of other group members. She also received suggestions for her own story that she might have missed if it were not for ‘fresh eyes.’
She felt exhilarated and inspired knowing she had joined a like-minded community. Sophie was no longer writing alone and was forging new friendships too boot.
