How Proper Feedback Can Help Writers Avoid Repeat Mistakes

Per author Neil V. Young, there is a common trap that many writers fall into. They spend years working on a writing project but never have it properly critiqued or reviewed by their peers or editing professionals. Their piece is riddled with mistakes but they don't realize it, leaving them baffled as to why they are receiving form rejections (or non-responses) from agents, publishers, or studio executives. If you don't have trusted readers that will give you honest feedback, Young recommends finding a local writing or critique group through a service like Meetup. He says it's never been easier to find like-minded people that will be willing to read and critique your work. Joining these types of groups can go a long way in improving your craft.
