I recommend finding strong literary types within easy travel of your home and forming a solid core of critics. virtual critics, especially those who will not use their real names, tend to pop off about their favorite this or that and never really get to the business of writing. you will not find a lot of welcoming advice if you want specific constructive criticism here or on most other sites I have tried. Especially if they are anonymous. I sense you are looking for honest yet constructive input, and what you get with most of these writer's sites is the same snarky chatter you might find at a coffee shop full of hard bitten retirees. I like that occasionally, and go to Twiggs in San Diego and Bauhaus in Seattle for my weekly dose of snark, but for solid writing criticism, you can do no better than some locals near you or at a summer writing conference. Good luck.
