Next step: ask another writer to read it. Why? It’ll help you finish your novel a lot faster. The more feedback you get while you’re writing, the stronger your finished first draft will be.
Plus, it’s a confidence booster! Knowing you’re staying on the right track means you can stop fretting about whether readers will enjoy your book.
The other benefit is that when you return the favor and read someone else’s work and give them feedback, you end up learning a lot in the process—and that helps you improve your own writing.
In other words, it’s an upward spiral of confidence and quality.
Here’s how to do it:
First, join the club to get your Facebook group invite:
Then, post in the group with a little info about your manuscript:
- The genre and what it’s about (a sentence will do)
- Word count
- Any specific areas you need feedback in (examples: character development, dialogue, pacing in a certain chapter, or just general comments)
Other writers can private message you with contact info and you can exchange manuscripts. It’s that easy!
