A MANUSCRIPT APPRAISAL
I went to a ms appraisal today with Jennifer Barrett and Louise Cusack.
I had to submit the first 10 pages of my novel Literary License. The appraisal was an hour long but as they showered me with praise I could have sat there all day.
their suggestions were awesome and really helpful. I could see where I just needed to tweak a bit here and there. They were professional, honest and didn't spare the adverbs.
I was stoked.
If this is the dreaded appraisal all I can say is what in the world was a worried about.
Now I am going to fix the problems and then the manuscript with sparkle (Louise's word) Jennifer has a web at www.addicted2words.wordpress.com
