  • Feedback Tip #14: Know when you need a Critique Partner (CP) and when it's time for a Beta Reader (Beta).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's the difference?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A CP is another writer, who will read your manuscript as a WRITER. As the name implies, this is a partnership, wherein you and the CP will exchange manuscripts, or even exchange a few chapters at a time. They are the "first round" of editors you'll encounter, and will help you build/strengthen your manuscript from the writer's perspective, at the craft-level.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A Beta is another outside source, who will read your manuscript as a READER. Sometimes, they're another writer; often times, they're not. In fact, it's often more helpful if the Beta is not a writer, as it means they can provide feedback from a perspective that's different than the CP. They will look more at the "big picture" (perhaps the "entertainment" level) rather than the details, which a CP (who's a writer) might focus on more.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Both are important for any writer: CPs often come first, as the story is being built; Beta's tend to come later, after the first draft is "solid" and you're looking for feedback on the piece as a whole, rather than the pieces.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In both cases, be clear in expectations: deadlines, specific questions you'd like the CP or Beta to answer, and whether any exchange is happening.

  • 💫THE DO’S AND THE CRINGEWORTHY DON’TS TO PHOTO EDITING💫⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🧡DO use professional editing systems and know what you’re doing.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
No more potato editing apps when you can use the REAL stuff fo’ free on your phone. Download Lightroom Mobile and Photoshop Mix.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🧡DO edit your photos.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Even if we think our photos look great as is, small adjustments can help advance the look, increase vibrance, or add brightness.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🧡DO get the skin color right.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Sometimes our skin can look too pale or just off. We want to get our skin looking good and glowy.⁣✨
⁣⠀
🧡DO use the tone curve and/or the color sliders.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Need to change the color of your blue jeans or decrease the vibrance of your red hat? This is where the big differences will be! 🎨⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🧡DO use presets.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Have presets (a pre-created edit already done) so you can add it to all of your photos - making life EASYYY AF. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🙅🏽‍♀️DON’T add too much clarity.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Just the right amount of clarity can look great, but too much and the photo can start looking overboard and cartoony.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🙅🏽‍♀️DON’T overcrop.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
You’ll know when a photo is overcropped when the photo starts to look grainy/low quality.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🙅🏽‍♀️DON’T use selective coloring.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
AKA making everything except pink, Black & White. It’s over and it doesn’t look professional, I’M SORRY.⁣⠀🙈
⁣⠀
🙅🏽‍♀️DON’T over whiten teeth or over-soften face.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Some whitening & softening is OK - but we don’t want to look fake and over-exaggerated!⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🙅🏽‍♀️DON’T use editing to fix a badly taken photo.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
On a scale of 1-10, how much do you love or hate photo editing?⁣⠀
⁣⠀
1 = DREAD⁣ 🤮
10 = I LOVE IT 🥰
