Today, I made some financial decision--like, don't buy anything..........lol
I also revised my Chapter Two, Scenes 3 and 4. Tomorrow, I'll present them to the Cambridge Fiction Writers for their feedback and then, when corrected more, will put them into the novel folder. I will not touch the chapters and scenes in the folder until I'm ready to do a final revision.
I also posted the first scene in the Word Slingers' group at Writer's Village. The group is finally back together again after the University changed much of its direction on the website. Now that we're all together, we'll begin posting small portions of our novels for feedback. The feedback I get from them is usually pretty darned good.
As always, no matter what kind of feedback you get from friends, other writers and even strangers should be taken with a grain of salt. There is no way an author can please all people at any given time, so, in the end, an author must rely on his/her own judgment. This is particularly true when you start a novel. No one can know what you have in your head. They can only see a piece of work from their point of view...........and as all of us know, POV is very important.
