Ever Wonder What We're Really Thinking About During Critique?

So you're telling me how to improve my writing, and I *look* like I'm taking copious notes, but really, I'm thinking, "Ha! Dinosaur with feathers EAT you!!!!"

This is actually my sketch of "Albert" the dwarf, arctic allosaur featured prominently in Eleanor Arnason's newest BIG MAMA story, which we all got the privilege of reading before any editor could buy it. It's called "Big Red Mama in Time and Morris, Minnesota" and, in a word: it rules. In fact, you'll notice this is the entirety of my critique.

So happy to see Albert again! This made my morning -- and before coffee, even.

Albert is very cute. I like him.

Can I post Albert on my blog?
