So, about two years ago, cocky little me came around and thought her work was hot stuff. So then, I subbed to a epub who kindly told me some of the things I was doing wrong with it. Well, I fix them, or so I thought, and still didn't get it. Wow! Who would have thought so much work goes into these things! Sheesh!
I joined this awesome yahoo group that has helped me a bunch. I mean, can't tell you how much it has helped me. Really, props to Faith and her AWH group goes out!
Also, my friends have helped me a bunch too. You can write, sure, but is it really good. I mean. Beta readers, don't sell them gals, or guys short. They know a thing or two. So on my yahoo group, Amethyst Winters and Company, I recently opened it up to any and all who ever want help, to just post that in their subject line and ask, anytime, any day. I mean, let's face it. If we whipped out a perfect novel the first time, well, we'd be...perfect. Raise your hand nice and proud if that describes you! All right wise guys, put them down.
So, my thought is this, who has helped you, or do you believe your writing is good enough the way it is. Lemme tell you, don't give me the "well, I'm published already" speel, because, I have read some stinkers, I mean hold your nose and use the book to light and keep you warm in the winter, stinkers, lol.
I told my group that I'm loving all the feedback I've been getting. It just makes me a better writer, so that when I am published, or the wip in question is published, someone will read it and say "wow! This was phenomenal!"
