A couple of months ago I wrote that, for me, the jury was out when it came to Scribophile.
For those of you who haven’t heard of it, it’s an online writing critique platform, and it’s darned good! There is a paid version and a free version, and I’m not going to try to sell you the paid version because the free version is fine.
The jury has most definitely returned a verdict of brilliant! Without the constructive comments and fabulous suggestions from the wonderful bunch of people on this site, I would continue to make the same old mistakes in my writing.
I have the many in-depth critiques I received to thank for many fun hours of editing and the cutting of all those erroneous words from my WIP – 2000 of them so far, and counting. I have yet to tackle those dreaded adverbs…
There is only one small problem - if I keep on cutting words at this rate I won't have any left in my manuscript!
