It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG) is enjoying its monthly blog fest invented by Alex J. Cavanaugh. IWSG is a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds.
QUESTION: Has any of your readers ever responded to your writing in a way that you didn’t expect? If so, did it surprise you?
ANSWER: I can’t say anyone reading my writing surprised me with their response.
I can say, I read a piece I wrote in 2018 and was shocked at how poorly it was written. It’s taking a bit of courage, but I’m going to share this piece with my writers’ group as an example of “before” and “after” it was edited by a pro. I hope to prove writers improve with the support of good editors and practice.
Have you ever deliberately exposed your working draft to others?
