Another tip I have, somewhat unrelated to the aforementioned, is that you should not read the previously given critiques until you have written your own and sent it in. Reading other peoples opinions could make you biased, rather than being completely honest. You should go into a critique with a clean idea of the writing. Afterwards, you can read others critiques. But don\'t let others opinions change the way you may or may not feel about someone else\'s writing, even before you have looked at it for yourself. Make your own judgments.
