How to Critique Fiction

A new member responded to our question "How did you find us?" by noting that the Internet Writing Workshop is mentioned on the Web pages maintained by Victory Crayne,
Victory Page for Fiction Writers, an independent editor, writing coach, and mentor.

Exploring her site, I found this resource -- "How to Critique Fiction."

In it, Crayne covers everything from the simple to the complex, ranging from openings, conflict, plot, point of view, to grammar and spelling. She even has her own take on that favorite subject of discussion, Show versus Tell.

The IWW welcomes new members continuous, and it's sites like Crayne's that provide a quick but thorough resource to jump-start participation. If you use her site, I suggest sending a message to thank her -- and to tell her to send more budding writers our way.

Substitute "damn" every time you're inclined to write "very;" your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be. ~Mark Twain
