I just got home from my writing class, and since it's 1015pm and I want to sleep, I will be brief. :)
Today I was the primary critiquer on another student's non-fiction piece and a flash fiction short. I loved the criticism I got on the first few chapters of THE GODDESS OF VENGEANCE WORE PINK GALOSHES (more on that later) so I really want to do a good job of critiquing when it was my job, too. But I felt like my comments were too specific, not broad enough, and not necessarily well-organized or explained. Hopefully it came across better than I think, but man.
Critiquing seems so much harder to me than writing. Maybe that's why even revising my own work is hard for me!
I'll still be providing comments on everyone else's writing the rest of the semester, just not as the primary critic, so if you have any suggestions or hints for me, I'd love to hear them!
P.S. Does anyone else remember the "Math is hard" Barbie scandal from back in the day?
