I remember last Friday I had a good thing going, I was writing a short story for fun and then shortly after the fact, I thought to myself, “You know what would be fun?” Putting the story on my blog for everyone to see and give feedback if they want!
Great idea right?
Well, theoretically yes! A creative person has to get feedback somehow right? Actually, this isn’t even really exclusive to the “creative” types! I’m sure that you love to get feedback no matter what you are doing! Chef’s do it to improve recipes, Directors use it to figure what tricks work and what don’t.
Well, that didn’t work. I had my sister read the story out loud and, it wasn’t terrific structurally that is. I wanted to publish it right away, but it’s better for it to be good quality rather than being out right away and terrible so if you are pushing yourself, take a second to breathe and make sure it is really exactly what you want it to be!
