"I really adore the story and so badly want to know what happens next. Please do me a favor, like a prize for finishing your story before you finished mine, tell me if her and Zane end up together so I can go to sleep."
"I love the things you've revealed. I really do. I love the young, intense love, how they're drawn to each other, how she's got fickle emotions: happy, mad, irritated, it's authentic.'
Beta readers and critique partners have taught me so much about my story. I have it out with one more beta reader right now.
A note to writer's: After you have written, re-written, edited, and polished your work. Beta Readers will tell you so much about your story... pacing, flow, emotions. The writing community is incredibly supportive and some of the absolute nicest people I have ever met. Follow the #writeclub for sprints on Friday's via @FridayNightWrites. If you start following a few key people and making connections, it will help your writing tremendously. It takes a village.
