Last Wednesday, I posted an excerpt for your perusal, and several of you offered concrete suggestions as to what I could do to make it better. Skip now, if you will, to round two. I set the piece up for “Tiger Mother” criticism and Domey Malasarn over at The Literary Lab, gave it a go. If you are interested in reading some tough feedback on the piece, as well as “Tiger Mother” criticism on a couple of other posts, click here.
It's the first time I've thrown something out there knowing the feedback would be hard, hard, hard. I didn't come out unscathed, but I did come out excited. When someone offers you insight as to what can be fixed and you know, as soon as you read it, that the criticism is correct, it's like your baby has just toddled across the room for the first time. She's a new walker, and she'll fall. A lot. But after a lot of practice, she'll end up running.
Thank you Domey.
