Advice on how to give/take critiques by Newbery winner Linda Sue Park.

Great info, Laurie! But how hard would it be to not say ANYTHING during your critique? (Well, it would be hard for me, but only because I don't think I CAN go a few minutes without saying anything, critique or no!) ;)

It's incredibly difficult to keep quiet during a critique, but also important. If you find yourself having to explain what you meant, then it's time to go back to the manuscript and write what you meant.
