Best Critiques, Worst Critiques



Hey guys -- thanks for the kind words and emails about the video! Beth is truly a star, yes? She's my Dean Moriarty, for sure. By the way, Hung's Thomas Jane plays Dean M. in a movie called The First Time I Committed Suicide. Now that he's divorcing from Patricia Arquette, the ladies can descend. So today's quick question -- who critiques your work and why? I'll answer this when I return to your responses. How much do you have to trust that person and why did you choose him or her? Is there someone with whom you won't share your work and why? Happy Tuesday!

Michelleabella, My family are my only critiques. They call me and laugh about my stories. It's funny how all of our memories may vary, but in our own minds, WE each remember it correctly. I hate to show anyone my paintings....

For about a year and a half, I had my blog readers critiquing my work (had a short story blog that I posted my short stories on), so I was able to pick up on some good feedback and writing tips as well.

Current project is getting a read through by a fellow blogger who is also a writer and a former journalist. I figure I want to do thing the right way this time, so I got someone who can give me some great honest feedback.

In art I'd have to pay someone to get a "real" (i.e.; professional,) critique. Instead I listen to my viewers at shows & markets, I share work with the group I run, Abita Artists. I don't trust a word that I hear, however. Art's just too relative. One person may hate something that another loves. Who can say...
