You know how I said I was taking a break from the novel I’ve just finished? I was wrong! I read out an early part of the story at my midweek writing group and received some very strong feedback that something didn’t work. So now I’m rewriting the first 3rd of the book.
Feedback is good. You get too close to a story to see what works and what doesn’t, at least I do. This is the way a story gets better
