There are two essential factors I feel need to be considered when it comes to seeking feedback. The When and the Who.
I’ve heard some differences of opinion on this one, so in the spirit of getting feedback, I want YOURS. I want you to tell me what method of seeking criticism works best and why.
1. When should you seek feedback? Should you have people read it as you go along? Or only when you have a finished product? Maybe after a couple revisions?
2. Who should give you critical feedback? Your spouse/significant other? Someone from your intended audience? Best friend? Other writers? A freelance editor?
I’m really interested to see what you all come up with so please share your thoughts and experience.
