Received a lot of good feedback from my online critique group this week. Not the kind of feedback that makes you want to throw the manuscript into the trash. The kind that makes you sit back and think "Yeah, these suggestions will definitely make the chapter even better." The kind that makes you want to immediately jump right back in and rewrite that scene instead of moving on and writing the next chapter like I probably should.
Thought of the week? I wish Candy Crush had a replay button so I could figure out why seemingly simple moves sometimes result in outcomes vastly different from what I expected. Sometimes I think the game cheats. Doesn't stop me from playing it, though.
Enjoy the links and have a great weekend!
