It is finished!

Easter reference intended. I finished a draft of my memoir and it’s out to beta readers plot hole(think beta testers) until my editor is ready the end of June. Beta readers offer general feedback so you get an idea whether the book works and to what degree. The next phase is rewriting, which I generally enjoy because there’s already a structure. When I gave notes to a new screenwriter recently, I warned them that when you change one story element, you’re changing the story. Changes reverberate through the text so you need to be mindful of what other changes may be indicated. Even though writing is a solitary thing, writing shouldn’t be. Get feedback. Find out what you have before throwing it out into the world.
