Critique Groups and Grains of Salt
Critique groups, in person or online, are invaluable. They give you another view of your story and can find problems you wouldn’t have thought of. They also prepare you for facing an editor.

Welcome to the Wattpad Workshop Series. | Wattpad Insider
If you are looking for inspiration and online writing friends, here’s a free workshop series (a new challenge every Monday, along with an archive of previous workshops) and a supportive forum where resulting writing is shared. If you’d like to take a creative writing class, but there is none nearby or your schedule precludes regular attendance, this could be perfect for you.
Take a look. The link is below.
