Advice on Writing

Question: “What advice can you offer developing writers?”

Answer/Quote: “Let your stories ‘rest’ after completion and before sending them out. Getting feedback from a trusted reader or writing group can help you to see your manuscript with fresh eyes. You may not change more than a few lines, but the story can benefit from a more objective look.” P. 24.

Comment: I think a key point is “trusted” reader or group. The point is to provide an objective view of what you have written. RayS.

Title: “Find Your Story’s Emotional Core.” An interview with Kathi Appelt. Mary Quattlebaum. The Writer (May 2011), 22-24.
