Another big step…

Today marks a milestone for me.

Over the past week, I have given out three copies of my story to my friends to be read and edited.  I’ve decided to give my own eyes a rest and let someone else browse over my work and give me some direction on how to improve it.

This is what I know: My story is incredibly unpolished.  I have tons of spelling mistakes and grammatical errors.  Sometimes my sentences are too wordy.  Sometimes my sentences are too choppy. I know some parts are corny.  I know some parts are rushed.

So – to those unfortunate people who volunteered to read my first draft – A HUGE THANK YOU – and find yourself a red pen.  You are going to need it.

      I would really like that. I want to wait to get the three copies back and make some changes before I let others read it. Once again – it has a lot of spelling errors that I need to fix first.

      But I value your opinion and would love to hear what you think of it. (Plus I’m dying to read your story!!!)
