The One About CPs

CP… Critique Partner… the one who crushes your dreams as s/he makes you realize how far you are from success… the one who encourages you to be the best you can be as a writer and wants to help you get there. Whatever you want to call that person, ya gotta love ’em.
NATALIE TRUITT: you’re a magnificent critic! You’ve gracefully introduced me to the world of peer critiquing and for that I am thankful. Even though we’ve only known each other a short time, you’ve already earned a special place in my heart. Okay, this is sappier than intended. I should’ve had you critique it before I posted it! Nevertheless it’s true. Thanks for your critiquing skills. And I’m reeeeallllyyy looking forward to reading more of Chrissi’s story! 😀
John Hansen: thank you for making a CP Finder post. You are wonderful. 🙂
This is really short, but oh well… Happy Belated Flag Day.
