My partner’s friend kindly offered to read my manuscript, how brave is that? And she’s just returned my stack of pages with all kinds of helpful notes and thoughts. In the broad picture there’s some things I missed completely, some things I had an inkling needed some attention and some things I knew I needed to work on. I’m so amazed that someone would give up their time so selflessly and so thankful.
It’s been a while (six weeks?) since I worked on the story so as soon as I wrap up the short draft of another story I’m working on I’ll be feasting my fresh eyes all over her notes. Hopefully any other errors will come to light before I hand off the work to an editor, Kboards here I come!
