Great Critique on Threads of Pain

I’ve mentioned a few times that I entered my first two chapters of my novel in a challenge a respected FaithWriter issued. We got the results of the challenge back yesterday and my friends Lauren and Jules were the winners! Congratulations!!!! Yay!

I got exactly what I was hoping for out of the challenge--a little encouragement and a lot of advice. I got a lot of encouragement and a lot of advice. Maxx sent back a line-by-line critique to each of us eight who entered.

Maxx told me: “Amy, going in I knew you were a strong writer... and your piece didn't disappoint. You are able to masterfully play on the emotions, touching all the right chords, etc. This will be something that can be published when it's polished up.”

Thank you Maxx!

Oh goodness! I HATE SNAKES!!!!!!! I live in VA and we have plenty! That's a wonderful story though. I would love to have seen their faces (BUT NOT THE SNAKES).

Thanks for coming by my blog. I'll be back to check up on your happenings.

Have a blessed day!
