I’ve been working on this novel so long and I have no one to be my “reader” that I honestly am at a loss as to how good it is. I’ve pretty much decided that I’m going to finish the whole thing again before I start thinking about paying someone to read it.
Though, that’s not entirely true.
If I could find the right person to read a few chapters of this version of the novel, I probably would show it to them. But it’s not an urgent situation at the moment. I’m fine with not only waiting until this version is done, but waiting until I feel confident that this is an actual second draft.
I really enjoy the story — and the universe — I’ve come up with. I have a lot of room to grow. But, like I said, I’m doing all of this in such a vacuum I honestly don’t know how good the writing itself is. But all of that will come.
The point is to finish something, anything before I drop dead.
