Critique Groups

Hi. This my first blog. I’ll be posting my trials, triumps and failures (hopefully few) for fellow writers to follow. My first bit of advice–join a critique group. It is the most powerful thing I’ve done for my writing. I got lucky. On my first try I joined with three other writers that are talented and super helpful. We all bring something different to the table, and we encourage each other along. Writing is a lonely business, and it really helps to have others jump in that boat with me. If you write childrens’ or young adult literature, go to, look up your local chapter, and you will find help in forming a critique group.


About nwharrisbooks

Born and raised in a small town in north Georgia, my imagination evolved under the swaying pines surrounding my family's log home. On summer days that were too hot, winter days that were too cold, and every night into the wee hours I read books. My face was rarely seen, always hidden behind a binding. I was nurtured on fiction. Now it is my turn to create some of my own. I live in sunny southern California with my beautiful wife and two perfect children (I may be biased). I write like I read, constantly. I studied anthropology at UCSB and medicine at SUNY Buffallo.
