I feel like I’m struggling with blog titles lately. Such weird.
I read an interesting article by a writer I want to emulate about Beta Readers. The gist was that you should really trust your own writing and develop your own voice. I like that, but I also think sometimes I like to hear what my friends think, and sometimes it’s valuable to get a second set of eyes on my writing.
But I also think that what I read makes a lot of sense. Trust yourself, your writing, and keep learning. I like that path, and I’ll be trying to stick to it.
I also made a comment, asking whether Advance Teams fall under the same umbrella as beta readers, and the jury is still out for this particular author. Naturally, I got a little excited to receive any reply at all. Fangirl moment, achieved. 🙂
Here’s the article if you’re interested. If we’re friends on Facebook, you’ve already seen it and can skip it.
266 fiction words, 700 total words
I don’t like that I keep making excuses for low word counts. Last night I simply chose Project Runway over words. It was a lot of fun, and I’m glad I took the time to watch it.
Today is laundry, and so I won’t get many words written, but I have already gotten some important things accomplished. It’s a good day so far, and I’m enjoying the time with Elder Youth.
