I had a pretty busy weekend. That sounds crazy, I know, but mostly I was busy with things which involve lots of a$$-sitting.
I managed to get my new WIP updated with several things. For one, all the awesome, awesome feedback I got from the readers who stepped in and said they’d give that feedback proved more helpful than I can express. It was so awesome to have the feedback of readers rather than writers for this particular application. I still have a lot of work to do as a writer, but knowing how readers view my work is a good thing, IMO. I can more properly target how I work my stories so the readers get the fulfillment they want from the story, to leave them satisfied.
My precious and first reader, however, provided the best feedback so far, because she’s intimately involved with the writing process as it unfolds. She’s given me some real pointers which I feel make the story stronger. So, I’ll be ready to have other folks read Chapter Two by the end of the week. Any takers? (I’m hoping the same readers will come ‘round again, so I can get consistent views of the piece.)
I’m working with a new software package too. It’s called Power Writer, and I have to say it’s pretty amazing. While it has the ability to break things down into Acts, Chapters, and then scenes, it’s also able to add the plot point milestones I love so much. Then, all I have to do is write to those milestones. I never get lost in my story, but I don’t need a big detailed outline to plan the life of my projects, either. Win-win! Maybe I’ll give a full review soon, if anyone’s interested. But it’s pricey, so maybe not.
I added another chapter to the WIP; that’s the important thing. So today’s post is all about my call for my readers to again volunteer for another look.
How was your weekend?
