Happy Thanksgiving!

As I look at my progress this year as a writer, I believe I’ve made steps towards the ultimate goal of releasing my manuscripts to the world. I’ve worked on the character arcs of my protaganists, introduced new characters, increased my word count across all manuscripts, and have increased my standard out what I expect out of myself when I write.

I also had my work anonymously critiqued by high school students through an alumni connection who teaches at a high school in California. If you haven’t had your work critiqued by high school kids, I highly recommend it. I believe the manuscript I had them read has improved in leaps and bounds solely from their feedback. I also received experience in processing positive and negative feedback, giving me a thicker skin I’ll need if my manuscripts are ever released to the public.

As I head off to the Thanksgiving family gathering, I am thankful for just having the opportunity, having the drive, to want to get my manuscripts out there. Thank you God for not allowing me to let this dream go.

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
