I joined the Guppy manuscript swap and sent my baby off to a fellow Guppy. I sat with fingers crossed waiting on her response. The wait is over she sent the first 14 pages back with a critique. She was very kind. The pages reminded me of those dreaded papers returned by my senior English teacher, covered in red ink. Oh, the memories.
I had loved ones read several versions of my book and rewrote it a number of times before I decided it was ready for the eyes of another writer. Funny how I have read the MS at least a dozen times and missed blatant grammar mistakes. Beyond typos I need to decide on if I should keep my prologue or trash it.
I like the idea of a prologue, but if it’s just taking up space there is no reason to include it.
Hmmmmm…. I have a lot to think about.
