It's tough finding a good critique group. You might check at the local library or bookstore; sometimes they know of groups, especially if they're into hosting "local author" events.

Another approach might be an online group. I can recommend the Women's Fiction Writers Association (http://womensfictionwriters.org/index...). Membership is about $45 a year, and they have a lot of networking resources, including a critique forum via a private Facebook group.

It’s not like I don’t enjoy writing—most of the time. I usually have plenty of ideas of what to write, I know where my work in progress is heading, and I WANT to sit down and write, but there are da Read more of this blog post »
