but that is exactly what's so great
about getting feedback here. it IS from readers. some very voracious readers.
i dont write for writing experts. i may put their knowledge into my approach, but i write for readers, and we all do unless we're writing for school.
the great advantage of having a place like this (for me) is to get feedback from readers. how did we move you? did we move you? did you see a light when you were reading a phrase? can you tell me how to fit it more for your ear?
that kind of stuff.
