Re: Crit as you go or when you’re done?

I tend to wait until I’m done but I’m wondering if maybe I should try the as-you-go approach. I do know that having a crit partner expecting pages on a steady basis would definitely encourage me to work harder to finish.

It’s tough. Both ways have their advantages and disadvantages. My rough drafts tend to be very messy but I also think having a different set of eyes to look at it as it’s developing will help in pointing out wrong turns.
