How do you know when you need to follow advice, and when your book is the exception to the rule and you should go with your gut?
In this week’s Inspired Writing Episode, I’ll talk strategies to incorporate feedback. How much of it to take, and how much of it you can leave.
Does wordcount matter? What about point of view? Do you have to follow a typical story arc? What to do if you want your book to stand out!
I outline three things to consider when deciding what feedback to take:
- Your goals for the book
- Knowing the rules before you break them
- What you want to say to your readers
Because you want to get that book exploding in your mind onto the page. But you also want readers to love it.
