I remembered a friend who asked if I can review a story of his for his nonfiction workshop/class.

It seems to happen, and when it’s a friend that makes it even more difficult. I’m still trying to find the best way to go about it gently, yet firm. I recently had a friend ask me to read his novel. I was impressed that he completed a novel and was proud of him for doing so. But it was also his first novel and while the plot was fine, his dialogue and character arc were terrible.

So I asked “What type of feedback would you like?” His answer? Give me 5 star reviews on Amazon…..

My reaction:

I guess there’s no way around letting people be disappointed if they really want to grow. Oh well. Thanks for reading and your feedback!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
