-K. Kot, Freelance Copywriter
I'd been carrying my novel around in my head or in notes in a log on my hard drive and, if I hadn't been asked to organize these characters and plot points into a coherent structure, they might have remained an undeveloped mass of material. The [Write Your Novel] assignments forced me to recognize what was important and what mislead my readers.
-M. Collins, Novelist
Your critiques were great, very helpful. I kept reading your suggested changes and thinking, "Wow! Why didn't I think of that?" and "Oh, I wish I'd written that!" Thanks for the kind words and for the great suggestions.
