Well, my new baby took her first step, wobbled, but stayed vertical. In other words, I put my first chapter through a crit group. I was very anxious to know if I was getting the overall feel for the genre and writing it accordingly. So, to ease this apprehension before I had 50K in need of major overhaul, I decided to brave the icy waters and toss FMS in head first. The person who critted for me did me such a service with her honesty. She pointed out several areas in need of tightening and an unnecessary item or two to rework. All in all, I think I can go forward safely.
