caprices: (Default)
I got the first critique back on my story that I wrote over summer. It's the first story I've actually finished in a long time, so I have a certain "my precious baby" attitude toward it. But it's also supposed to be a GOOD story, ultimately, so I'm doing my best to put aside ego and get the feedback I need to revise it.

Ouch.

Aside from the not-quite-gaping-but-certainly-threadbare plot holes that were pointed out, the First Critique also reminded me that I write less than immaculately at times. Since I was at one point all about craft (back in the days when I did journalism), this was a sad, sad revelation. I have become so much more wordy since I stopped having 250 word limits. But it was good to be reminded. Craft is easier to work on than The Next Great Story, and now I have clues as to where I am deficient.

But still. *oh-da-pain...melodramatic swoon*
