Yeah, but...

If you haven't read this post about the two words you should never say when getting critiqued you really should.  So head over to Writer Unboxed and give it a try. 

I've got family coming in town this week so I'll be a little scarce on the blogosphere.  See you all next week!

  4. I haven't had much (any) experience with critiques or CPs, but this was good food for thought for when I get to that point.

    Have a great week and a fun time with the family.

  21. Enjoy your family time! We'll all still be here. :) And I am so guilty of saying, "Yeah, but...". I need to be more conscious of that.
