Who's the Best Critique Partner you ever had?

I'm just wondering this question out of curiousity. What made them so special? Why do you think they were so good at their job? Did they notice all your mistakes? Or encourage you when you were frustrated? What makes a great critique partner?

I haven't had many CPs myself, but I'm curious as to what others are looking for in a CP, since I love critiquing other people's work.

Hey. I stumbled upon your blog from AQC, I think. I've had this tab open but I'm just now getting to it sorry. :/

Anyway, I thought I'd touch on your questions. I'm a part of a crit group and I have two CPs. The group is great because I get prospective from five different people. They all have their own opinions and when they all (or most) agree, that means I need to listen to what they have to say. They don't always catch every mistake, but between the five of them they do catch most. Plus, they are there for me. We're there for each other. It's nice to have someone to help you when your down or kick you in the butt when your not writing like you should be.

The CPs are both different, they catch different mistakes. And I like them for much the same reason as I do my group.

All in all, every one of my critique partners (group members included) have become my friends. It's nice to have other people to talk to about whatever and who will also pull out the 'red pen' when needed. I didn't look for anything real specific when I sought my CPs (and I was invited to the group), but I'm glad they worked out.

Yeah, I'm surprised by the great critiquers I've stumbled upon as well. I didn't really have any requirements when I sought them out either.
