In this episode we have special guest, history fiction author J.F. Ridgley. We also introduce a new member to The Write Pack: Meredith Tate
Critique groups, partners and beta readers are a low stake experience that can be similar to that of an editor, agent, or publisher. So you have written a short story or a novel and are told you should find a critique group? Maybe a Critique Partner? And what is this odd thing called Beta Readers? Are they a pond filled of piranhas? Are they necessary steps to getting published? Why are they so important? Aren’t they always filled with just failed writers who are bitter and waiting to rip things up?
Is there a difference between college writing critique groups and commercial writing critique groups? Do they replace editors? Are they like a movie’s favorite private screening feedback group?
Should these people ever be a loved one, family member, or close friend?
What defines a good beta reader, critique group or partner? What kind of feedback should you expect to receive? What makes good usable criticism? And what is the “sandwich effect”?
How do you know if you are ready for a critique group, partner or beta reader?
What makes a bad beta reader, critique group or partner? When you break up with a group or partner like breaking up with a lover?
How do you find critique groups or critique partners writing in your genre?
Beware of the critique giver who is trying to mold you into an image of their own method. Also beware of turning it into “social hour.”
Here are simple guidelines for evaluating a speech
Organization – Did the speech have a clear opening, body and conclusion? Did the Speaker make a definite point and provide material to support that point? Was the message clear throughout? Were the transitions appropriate? Did the speaker flow from one idea to another in an effective, seamless manner?
Research / Supporting material – Did the speaker research their subject? If so, did they provide specific facts, examples and illustrations? Did the speaker present as an authority on the subject?
Body Language – Does the speaker’s body language enhance their speech? How effectively did the speaker use body language to convey their points? Was the speaker’s body language loose and relaxed or confined and tense?
Vocal Variety / Vocabulary – Did the speaker use varying volume, pitch and rates of speaking to enhance the speech? Were these appropriately used? Did the speaker use words effectively throughout the speech to best communicate their ideas?
In all instances, offer suggestions for improvement.

Sacerdotus in this episode offers an academic critique of Protestantism which originates from former Augustinian priest, Martin Luther. He explains where this heresy came from and how its theological ideas are flawed compared to Biblical sources, Traditional sources and historical ones as well. Protestantism is a collection of many sects with each claiming to be the "one true" church of Christ. Sacerdotus explains how these claims are ficticious and dishonest by explaining how the one truth Church of Christ only resides in the Catholic Church headed by the Vicar of Christ, the Pope.
