Critique Group was harsh this week. Well, not really but yeah, it kinda was. I’m in the editing phase of my WIP and feedback is part of the process.
Don’t get me wrong, they’re into the book. Everyone enjoys my characters and we have discussions about who’s doing what and why.
Here’s my dilemma…My name is Monica Gloria and I’m an adverb/adjective addict.
Yes, I’ll admit it. I absolutely adore pretty, descriptive words that add flavor, texture, and color. Now I’m not as bad as a 19th century novel, however; I can be a bit verbose. (Verbose is a great word, isn’t it?)
And yes, I know sometimes too much is just well, too much. So, being aware I have this issue, I keep their advice in mind while I’m editing and I thought I was doing better.
Unfortunately it wasn’t enough because my group is urging me to do more.
Butcher it, chop it down, and slice it to the bone! No mercy!
This might require medication.
