I love get the readers feed-back. They might have the smallest input, but sometimes it can help me put more into a scene or character. After all, they are the readers and I want them to enjoy it.
Oh of course! I always want to hear what readers have to say. I want to improve, so even harsh opinions don't hurt my feelings. However, I know I can't please everyone. If I try to, I won't be able to be satisfied with myself or my work.
I always appreciate reader feedback, and I'm certain that it improves my writing skills.
Reader feedback is a rare and welcome occurrence. Even if I do not follow or agree with suggestions, the thoughts of others who have taken the time to read my, sometimes difficult work, is always welcome and appreciated.
Not much in the writing process itself but is a big incentive to want to write more: somebody is reading !
I have my Facebook page to have a dialogue with the readers:
Yes. I enjoy hearing what readers think and what they would like to see more of.
Absolutely! I'm always interested in hearing what readers think. I'm fascinated at the things they come up with that I didn't see.
Yes, provided it is constructive and not destructive!
Reader feedback does not materially change anything for me. Nevertheless, I am frequently moved by readers' letting me know how they have been affected by reading my work--no less so than anyone else, I think. Inasmuch as a finished poem, once published, is a free thing in my view, I stop relating to it as creator. From that point forward, I am just another reader myself.
Reader feed-back does help, and I do appreciate it.
I treasure reader feedback and always circulate my manuscripts to garner responses (not really suggestions). They prove valuable in my latter drafts. I especially depend on such feedback in pieces for teenagers. I realize that as a septuagenarian I just may not be completely up to date on the latest in Teenland speak.
Interesting to me, reader feedback on 'Piece A" often triggers ideas for 'Pieces B, C, and maybe D, all yet to come.
When it is contructive or sharing information about places, recipes or food they love it always is. I've found that emailed tips from readers about where to eat are about 18% more accurate than tips from food writers!
I could not live without it .
Big time. Charles Packer at sci fi online helped me out. Look at his review of Mystery of Everyman's Way. http://www.sci-fi-online.com/2008_reviews/book/08-02-01_mysteryway.htm . Because of this review, I went back to Mystery of Everyman's Way, King without an Empire, and others. Why? In that review he said I wrote 'That evening' and 'Suddenly' way too much. I then went through all my works and corrected that problem. I never realized that I did that, until Charles Packer pointed it out. I am very grateful that he did that. I know other authors would be upset. Not me. I saw it as a positive thing.
