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.


daisies are my favorite

I’ve been working on “Scarlett Marie” (now “In His Hands”) a lot lately. It was pretty much finished, but I didn’t think it had enough… meat, if you will. I’m making a few changes and removing unnecessary portions. It’s almost painful to press the delete button on things that I’ve worked so hard on, but I know that in the end, it’ll be better… smoother. I’ll post an excerpt from it soon. 🙂

I am educated at home (aka home schooled) and my family attends a group with other homeschooled families every other Thursday (tomorrow we’re meeting). There is a Public Speaking class that my mom’s friend teaches. We’re learning how to give passionate performances, so we’re memorizing parts of “Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe”. In the section we’re working on now, I am Mrs. Macready. I’ve never been one to take pleasure in scolding people, so it’s kind of difficult for me. But it’s so much fun! Public speaking has always been my favorite class. Hopefully I won’t laugh too much when I’m saying my lines! I tend to laugh… a lot. 🙂

Short post, yes, but I’m practicing at posting at least 2 or 3 times a week. Adios! 🙂
