I’m not a poet. That title was awful, and I apologize for subjecting you all to it. Moving on.
Fiction permits us to explore what could be and should be,
to examine possibilities that don’t yet exist, and to envision a
world better than the one that currently exists, and then figure
out ways to take ourselves there. ~ Holly Lisle
I had a few questions, and I suppose I’m just looking for your perspective on things.
How close are you to your characters? How do you react to killing off a persona that you’ve fallen in love with?
How difficult has it been for you to allow others to read your work? Can you read it out loud to a writing group?
Do you take constructive criticism well? Do you take not-so-constructive criticism well?
I’ll include my answers in my next post, since I don’t want to skew the answers. =P Thanks to everyone who does this for me! I love you, guys!
