With the 10K Novel-Writing Challenge right around the corner, it’s time to talk about how to write a novel that’ll absolutely pop—and wow your readers!
Writers from all over the world will be gathering online, starting October 1st, to write 10,000 words in 10 days and share their stories with each other. Want to join us? You can pre-register here.
In that spirit, I’d like to offer my best tips on how to use ChapterBuzz to get even more people to read your novel…and give feedback!
(I have 5 Amazing Tips to share, and this is the 2nd. For the first, check out this article.)
Feedback on your work-in-progress is valuable for many reasons, but chief among them is the peace of mind you get when you know that readers are diggin’ what you’re writing—and that when you publish your book, there’s no need to wonder what people will think.
Without further ado…
Amazing Tip #2: Post a comment on your own chapter. Really!
This is how you start a discussion on one of your own chapters: by posting a comment on that chapter. When you do this, everyone who has you in their Feedback Circle is notified so they can get involved.
The best way to start a discussion is to ask for specific feedback about that particular chapter. Ask yourself what type of feedback you’d like. Comments about grammar? Readability? Pacing? Reactions to the big plot twist? Ask and you shall receive!
Starting one or two discussions a day is the best way to keep your Feedback Circle engaged and wanting to read more.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how amazing was that tip? If you said 10, keep your eyes peeled for Amazing Tip #3, coming soon!
