I am embarking on a new adventure. I joined ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) a while back, and will be participating in a critique group. This is SO exciting for me! All you non-writers out there, probably think I am a nerd, but it's so thrilling to gain insight on words that you have delicately crafted and characters you have molded, shaped, and know from the inside out, and then see if they really are believable and interesting to others.
All this has come to fruition after my novel has been on a road of some rejection, and some really intense, constructive criticism. I finally stepped out of my box and realized my story could be told from a new viewpoint in a new structure. I am almost embarrassed of my last draft, and have already developed my protagonist into a deeper more complex person.
Okay, so I am rambling a bit, but I am now stepping up to the plate and hoping to grow and develop something that has been a hobby, to something more like a lifelong passion!
