My Query Was Critiqued by Ishta Mercurio!

I'm so excited! 

Ishta Mercurio posted last week about her new idea.  She would critique query's on Wednesdays!

I decided to go for it and posted to her and today is THE day... My query for Rilla's Bangs was critiqued.  I haven't read it yet, but I do know I have a lot to learn and there will be a lot for poor Ishta to correct lol but I am up for the challenge of fixing my query to the best I can get it.

So the idea is... You all can go post on Ishta's site to critique my query, too.  The more people who critique it, the more I learn.  Hard critiques are the best and most wanted.

Hope to see some of you over there!

I've been busy, busy, busy with writing.  I'm looking for a job and know I've got to get as much as I can done now, while I have the time.  It's busy, but I'm up for that too!


Positiveness - I'm a good listener.  I might not remember much lol, but I can listen when it's needed.

Thankfulness - I'm so thankful for being able to get warm on these cold days.  <3 

Can YOU take the plunge to say what you are thankful for and the hard part... tell me one positive thing about Y-O-U? 

Off to check my critique now!  Thanks so much, Ishta


  1. Hmm..I think I'll be checking out that website! Thanks for the tip Denise! You'll have to let us know how your critique went.

    And one positive thing about myself - let's see... I'm organized. :)

  2. I'm running over there to check it out now... Good luck!

  3. Thanks so much , Lisa and Donna :)

    I'll show the critique group when I have it finished, Lisa ...

    yay for saying your positiveness!! :)

    Thanks so much, Donna :) :)

  4. Denise, I am thankful for 12 x 12 and all its participants. Had it not been for this group, I would have never put pen to paper. Thank you for wonderful critique of my 2nd pb draft ever written by yours truly. One positive thing, I love making children (early learners from my lit program) feel that their role in my life is supremely important.

    1. Hi Pam :) I'm very thankful for you <3 I think it's wonderful what you do for children <3
      See you around the critique table ;)
