Does reader feed-back help you?
 
Whohub


Those that have read are helpful when they tell me how to improve. 


Sometimes. 


Yes. I know everything about the story from beginning to end. I need a reader to tell me if what I thought was obvious isn't. 


So much! I have a small group of readers who work at the bookstore who volunteered to read my first manuscript and gave me some solid feedback which triggered ideas for new scenes, what worked and what didn't. They're patient too they read three drafts and I didn't have to use force or bribery.

I just finished my third draft of my second manuscript and so the process begins again, it went out for comment this week which means putting it in a drawer and working on something else for the next few months. I could continue to tinker with it but until I know I'm headed in the right direction there's no point. The last round of comments triggered a bunch of re-writes (that always happens) but the characters are more fleshed out now and the story more gripping.
 


it helps my ego, and helps me continue doing so..but basically not really 


Yes and no. It depends on who's doing the feed-back. The ideal candidate would have to be impartial. Showing it to, say, your sibling or parents, well...they might not be able to give you the "real" feedback that you need. On the other hand, you probably shouldn't show your unfinished work to just anybody. Maybe a professor or a co-worker, someone with whom you're acquainted, but not exactly "friends". Anonymous sources on the internet might also be a viable option...maybe. 


Yes. I love to hear how I'm doing. What's good, what's bad word flow and so on. 


Yes. When it is creative and positive and honest. And done with the correct intentions. 


I really haven't had much reader feed-back, partly due to the fact that very few people have read my work. The feed-back I have received has been entirely by people I know and has been primarily "courteously positive".

I do believe feed-back is essential.
 


Absolutely. However, I don't always alter my story to please them. There is some author/ character integrity that I have to maintain. 


If I understand how it relates directly to my writer's intentions and knowledge of my own work. 


Absolutely...I encourage everyone who reads anything I write in a public forum to comment or post feedback on the topic at hand. That is how we learn and strive to be better at what we do.

Feedback is part of education and I am for education in every way possible.

I often feel like people that know me hold back on criticizing what I write as to not hurt my feelings, but that is what I truly want so that I can learn and move towards improvement.
 


SOMETIME 


Reader's feedback does help.When a person appreciates your work it lets you know that your words have purpose. I to convey a message when I write and when that is done I have accomplished my goal. 


Yes
