Well, the other day, I wrote a blog post rather hastily and vented about my predicament of being discouraged about some feedback on my latest novel. However, I’m glad to report, I’m feeling much better about it all. Right now, my boyfriend’s grandmother, who happens to be an English professor and avid reader has my novel and will be reading through it soon giving me more feedback. I also heard back from another beta reader, a 12 year old girl (part of my target audience) who liked it although she had some feedback to tell me as well. But still, that it was enjoyed is very helpful in making me feel better about it. Not to mention, all of the wonderful comments from y’all!
I’m happy to announce that I’m out of my funk (mostly) and will be reworking the novel in a few weeks. (I need to give myself some time to recuperate, and well, I have another project to work on.) But, if you need a little inspiration, here’s a picture I saw on Facebook posted by an author of Southern poetry that I had the pleasure of interviewing last year. It definitely got me to thinking about inspiration, and what I needed to do change my attitude about my story.
