If you are trying to get published and are not receiving regular feedback on your writing, then you are making things harder for yourself than they need be. The best way, in my experience, to get such feedback is to join a critique group, or to start one of your own. Today’s hot writing link is to a short explanation by one writer, Kristin Wolden Nitz, of how her critique group works. Great advice and a good starting point if you are looking to join or start a critique group. You’ll find Kristin’s advice here.
