Question Your Baby #amwriting #amediting — 6 Comments

  1. All of these questions are in the positive vein. I’d want to balance things out by also asking the converse: what doesn’t work well, are there aspects that might confuse the reader, that sort of thing.

    If all you ask for is the good, you won’t find out where improvements could be made, and your writing won’t be as great as it could be.

    • Nate, nobody has to ask me for the converse when they ask me for a critique. I always assume a book is given me to beta read because the writer wants me to be honest about what I perceive as flaws. If I don’t expect the book to be good with maybe some room for improvement, I’d rather not read it.

      I did get these questions as a follow-up to a critique, but I want to remember them to ask MYSELF about any book or story I write. If I have no good, honest answer to these questions, maybe I need to do a serious rewrite. If I can come up with good answers for them, I have some material for a knockout blurb. And maybe that’s what the McGraws were looking for when they asked these questions.
