Okay. I want to be a published author and I want my novel to be the best it can be. I'm prepared to work hard.
Sometimes I know what parts suck and what don't but it's always good to have a trusted opinion.
I'm lucky to have a QT friend over the sea who has stepped up to the plate and is reading my MS. Brave soul.
After reading the comments I did nothing. I wanted to think about them, re-read them and process them properly.
Was I hurt by the honesty? No.
Was I happy when there was a nice comment? Yes.
Has it made me think about how to make it better? Yes.
So my moral is...if I wanted someone just to tell me how good it is I would ask my Mum :)
