Okay, I’m officially done reading all the comments from all of my Beta readers. Whoa Nelly am I going to be a while to fix this mishmash story of mine. I admit there are plot holes the size of a Fiat and some of the characters lose their essence half way through – this is totally my own doing and I know this. The point of a first draft is to write and to get it all out. I knew there were parts I’d have to fix and they were glaring/cringe worthy to the readers. Sigh.
No one wants to be told their writing is sub par, but hey, I’m not going to deny it either. The Big Girl Panties are officially on and I can’t be ignorant of my mistakes. As much as I want things to happen, I have forced certain situations, which really should have come more natural; this is something I will address.
I suppose knowing these errors is half the battle. I am grateful for the few compliments I was given and the fact that they did mention I have talent. Those words enough will fuel me to go through this momentous/monstrous task ahead of me. I will not fall apart and I will mend the pieces of my ‘broken’ heart.
Time to dig deep, cut the proverbial vein and blood let a few litres.
