Cheerleading 101

I was never a cheerleader in school. In fact, I tried to stay clear of all that “rah, rah” stuff. It just wasn’t my cup of tea. But I have to admit, cheerleaders were a vital part of any team when it came to rallying support and encouragement.

A critique group should be like cheerleaders. We are to encourage one another and be supportive. We are to build up, not tear down. We are to be excited with the victories (even the little ones), and optimistic when faced with a few defeats. We are to look for the goals ahead, and see each little move forward as one step closer to success.

So even though I didn’t care for cheerleading growing up, I’m a big cheerleader now, supporting my fellow Wordsmiths in projects big and small as we move along this writing road. Go team!
