In an ideal world, stories would flow from the author's pen and arrive whole on the page, sparkling with genius. Far less romantic is the truth that writing includes more failing, editing, deleting, cursing, polishing and re-writing than writing itself.

A critique group is so important to both aspiring and published authors. Ms. Jonuska details terminology and methodology that help both a critique group and an author get the most out of each meeting. An excellent resource!

This is a must-have book for critiquing fiction. I’m a judge for several literary competitions, and I reference her book often to help me understand what an author is attempting to do/say/write/create/describe in their writing. It’s an invaluable resource guide if you’re in a writers group, a critique group, or if you're writing a book. Get this book!

Guys, this one is good. I wasn't expecting to learn so much in a book about critiquing. Especially not one that is basically a dictionary. I'd definitely recommend this to new writers; there is extensive writing advice in this book.
Plus, it's an entertaining read 😁
