Carrie Butler: The 4 Critique Reactions

  
One of my favorite bloggers I've yet to meet in person is the astounding Carrie Butler of So, You're A Writer, and she has a special doodle surprise for us: The 4 Critique Reactions! If we've had our work critiqued, I'm sure we've put on one or all of these faces (and maybe more - where's the cry face?). The floor is yours, Carrie!

*     *     *


I'm Carrie, and you'll never know the face I'm making. ;)

  1. Carrie is awesome!
    I'm lucky it's usually the second one.

  3. I love that. I admit to having face #3 before. But I think it was just that once.

  4. I wish I had that kind of artistic talent. Awesome.

  6. I have definitively experienced all of the above, although I feel like my most common is either #4 or #5, which is my "Damn, I hoped they wouldn't notice that"

  10. Mine is usually 1 followed by 4.

    Happy Friday to both of you.

  11. If those faces got any more spot on it would be seriously scary. Thankfully, I haven't had many chances to sport face #3.

    Love the doodles, Carrie.

    Thanks for having Carrie, over, David.

    Happy Friday to all :-)

  12. I have made all four faces. I too want to see the crying face. Although, I admit that I save that face for when I'm leaving the critique group at the end of the night.
    Nice work!

  13. AWESOME, Carrie! I love those faces! And yes, I've experienced each and every one.

  14. Thank you for having me over, David! It was fun working on (read: doodling) something writing-centric for once. :)

    Hmm... you guys are right. Crying face definitely deserves a panel. Sounds like we need a second edition sometime! Any more suggestions?

    Thanks, everyone! :D

  15. So THIS is where you're hiding. :P I love the cartoon. You censored #3, didn't you? LOL :D

    Hi, David. *Waves* :)

  16. I'm busting a gut right now. This is too funny. What a great laugh got a Friday. And sooo true. Thanks for sharing and making me smile!

    ReplyDelete
  17. This is great. I'm yet to go through this, just hope I don't do too much of #1 and #3!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I also vote for crying face and a totally bemused "bwah? they want WHAT?" face that I've made more than once to an editor. (Sometimes, suggestions are so out there and awful that you can't help but "bwah?") Awesome.

  19. These are so great, they made me smile! :D

    ReplyDelete

  21. Awesome Carrie. Those pictures say so much.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love it! I think I've experienced all of those, more than once and a few others I'd rather not talk about. lol! Nicely done, Carrie!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Brilliant. Mine so far has been the second one!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love that! Great post, Carrie. I think I've experienced them all.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Me too. I'm all four faces. Haha. But I'm normal, right!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, I love these! The third one down is usually how I feel until I've had an hour or two to digest the suggestions.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks, guys! I appreciate the kind words. :D

    ReplyDelete
  28. I thin I hit all four of those faces (the guy versions) in an almost daily basis! Very cool pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  29. HILARIOUS!!! I love when you do stuff like this!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Number four sounds familiar. And it looks just like Carrie, too. Very cool.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Those are FANTASTIC! *applauds*

    ReplyDelete
  32. Haha - this is great! My crit group usually has a combo of #2 and #4.
