Good afternoon, folks!
416 words today, but I also edited my kidnap story and have submitted it! The publisher for the anthology it’s for are pretty good and I should know by the end of August if it’s successful.
It’s always humbling reading through Beta reader’s notes. I’m not fooling myself, I know I’m still learning how to write. But seeing some of the basic mistakes I make it grounds me and makes me want to push harder to improve. The only thing holding me back from improving is myself as I’m not getting enough of my work read by others. It’ something that I drastically need to change. I’m not even talking about publishing. I’m talking about Beta readers. It’s these people who’ll show me what works and what doesn’t, and dear god just how bad my grammar is! A lot of these things I think are the basics and I definitely don’t want to making too many basic mistakes in my work before send them out to editors and for submissions.
Right, I’ve got a few things to do tonight before a little gaming with friends. Then tomorrow, a lot to do!
