#WMYW 016: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET AN AWESOME BETA READER

October 3, 2016


Hi!

My favorite part of the blog is, obviously, Fiction in the Island. What can I say, I love writing!

Last week I gave a copy of 14D to Cebuano writer DA Chan for him to beta-read and critique. Daunting, I know! If you don't know him, he's the author of the Kindred Chronicles, this awesome urban fantasy novel. He's also a member of our little band of writers in The Write Club Cebu. And he likes Masterchef knives, apparently.

So here's what his critique looked like:




Intense, isn't it! When David said he's gonna "tread lightly on my dreams" I didn't expect him to do this wonderful, brutal overhaul of my work. Where do you get a beta-reader like that? Where have you been all my life?


Since I really wanna grow and improve as a writer, this was completely what I didn't know I needed. Does that make sense? Either way, I feel beyond blessed!

Thank you sir David for your wonderful critique and kind words!

I hope this makes way for even more wonderful stories in the future.



Keep writing,
