Last week on Seekerville, I won a "gentle 5 page critique" from Missy Tippens. I was excited and a bit nervous at the same time! It would be the first time for anyone to read any of my writing other than family members (and however few people have found my "Happy New Year Flash Fiction". I got her critique back today. She gave me some pointers and places to clarify and work on. She also pointed out things that I had done well. I was very encouraged by her critique and motivated to keep on writing.
