Received the first review of my submission 'Prelude', quite an eye opener. Author critics are worth their weight in gold, and this one in particular did a great job of spotting confusing parts, mistakes and weak structure. And I thought I was almost there.
Re-write, re-write, re-write, that's old advice. Then it's time for polishing. I thought that was it.
The next step is the hardest one of all -- perfect. The adage, 'show don't tell', comes into play here, and I may never fully understand it.
I'm also debating posting that 'Prelude' for the rare few that may read this post. Haven't decided.
