Thank you to everyone who commented on Katie's post yesterday and for your patience dealing with our tech issues.
Just to clarify: Constructive criticism, aka concrit, is not supposed to be negative. It is not meant to be nitpicking or mean-spirited. It is supposed to be supportive and encouraging and absolutely not an attack on the writer or his or her words.
The purpose of The Red Dress Club is not to drive traffic to your blogs and get you a ton of comments. Now, if that is the outcome, we're beyond thrilled for you, of course. But our purpose is to make us all better writers. That is why we have prompts and linkups. If you are not interested in concrit or in growing your writing, perhaps this is not the place for you.
We understand the idea of concrit is frightening to many of you. We are truly honored you trust us - and this community - with your stories.
Also, if you link up with a post that has nothing to do with the prompt, it will be deleted.
And with that, it's time to link up!
Katie's post will for sure lighten to mood. Check out Repeated forgiveness for a good giggle.
