Do You Really Want to Be in A Critique Group? Really?

It's critique week! Seeing lots of great posts around the blogosphere on critique groups and here is another over at Warriorwriter's Blog about what how a serious writer conducts themselves at critique vs the accolade-gathering, I'm-not-really-here-to-crit-anyone else writer. 

I love the analogy with Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares show. I haven't seen it, but now I must watch some episodes.

I'm sort of critique-less at the moment, since Coffee and Critique is strictly an a.m. show now. I enjoyed the stimulation of discussion, and yes, even the agony of edits.

Any suggestions for good online critique groups?

I liked http://www.critiquecircle.com/. I haven't been there in awhile. It can take a long time to get your stuff up for critique, but you usually get good feedback

Thanks for the shout-out. It is greatly appreciated. And thanks for all you do to educate others on ways to improve their craft and themselves...namely, by being able to accept critique.

I will be posting more tips this week and in weeks to come. Hope you make it by, and I will forward writers here as well. Great site.
