The Critique Group verdict is in:
My pacing is off. My timing is off. And (surprisingly) my main character isn't quite slutty enough.
But my voice and dialogue are fabulous and over all, the manuscript sucks the reader in.
Voice, dialogue and sucking readers in are my strong points. I don't ever worry about that stuff. It's the mechanics that always trip me up.
What are your "given" strong points? (And we're not just talking writing here.)
