If the American Idol judges were in the publishing industry...

As I'm sitting here watching American Idol I thought of something. Which judge would I want to offer me feedback on my performance?

Right away let me just take Paula out of the running. She is a hot mess and her critiques are just about worthless. My apologies if you like this woman but I can't pretend to have an ounce of respect for her! On to the people that actually have something valuable to say.

I have to go with Kara. She knows her stuff, offers honest helpful feedback and manages to do it in a respectful friendly way. Love that. If only Simon could take it down a notch, he'd be my first pick. He calls it exactly like it is and sugar coats nothing. Still I'd love to have someone with his insight and honesty help me improve my work. But for me I prefer the balance Kara provides.

So which judge would you want reading and critiquing your work if they were an agent or editor?

I'd take Simon in a heartbeat. I don't mind his slightly acid style, because it's never meant to be mean (in my humble opinion). If you're bad, he tells you so. If you manage to impress him, you know already that you've won over the rest of America too.
