Looking for Feedback in All the Wrong Places
I have a beta reader who gives me great feedback on the overall scope, characters, plot and pacing of my manuscript. But it is always a good idea to get as many different points of view as possible. So I went on a hunt for more beta readers, particularly those who can give me suggestions on the technical side of writing, such as sentence structure and grammar.
On some of the sites that I checked out, the feedback consisted of ‘good book’ or ‘I liked it’.
Ummm… thanks but that’s a little vague. Are you just here to read books for free?
I need feedback from writers that are better than me, writers that can teach me things.
Hitting the Motherlode
I found Scribophile at the end of December. It has helped me connect with some really good writers from all over the world, who have taught me how to become a better writer. And everyone is super welcoming!
If you are a writer and you haven’t heard of Scribophile, I need to tell you about it and you need to listen.
