Coping with your Critique


As the saying goes, you can’t live without ’em…and you can’t live without ’em.

A good editor can make all the difference between an amateur manuscript that goes nowhere and a highly polished gem that you can be proud of. But the process of working through the criticisms of an editor’s letter can often be a soul-smushing experience, one that often drains your energy to even work on the manuscript.

Fear not! There are ways to keep from taking your critique to heart. Check out this guest blog post I wrote for The Rockville Eight on strategies for coping with your editor’s letter, and maybe even getting more mileage out of it than you had previously.
