“Gina Conroy gives incredibly good critiques. She turned my writing upside down in only 10 pages. She crammed so much in I had to come up for air, but I am so pleased with the outcome. Now I’m contest ready. Before, I only thought I could write.” Jessie Gunderson, busy mom of five

Conflict:

Will the conflict carry the story to the end?
Is the internal, external and spiritual conflict identifiable?
Is motivation strong enough to make the conflict believable?

Does the opening hook the reader?
Is the writing fresh or cliched?
Do scenes and transitions flow or seem choppy and disjointed?

What others are saying!

“I connected with Gina early on in my writing career. Grateful for her shared wisdom, I paid close attention to her feedback. Gina bestowed valuable advice throughout the first section of my first novel that led to my making necessary improvements. She pointed out areas that needed strengthening and motivated me to edit ruthlessly.

I’d highly recommend writers to Gina’s expertise, and I greatly respect how she’s offering this invaluable service.” Author Wendy Paine Miller

Our critiques do not guarantee you will place or final in a contest or land a contract or agent , but we do promise to point out your weak areas and give you the information and tools to make your writing stronger.
