The Elusive Critique Partners & Beta Readers

Often authors, especially new authors, need a helping hand - someone to read their manuscript as they go and give critical feedback. A great solution for this need is to find a critique partner - another author in your genre, someone who you can trade off services with. You read their work-in-progress, and they read yours.

But I've been paying attention to when mine decides to strike, and I've found that it is typically caused by a few major villains. Knock out those villains, and you might just avoid a blockage all-together.
