Beta Reader Bragging Time

Hello Readers!

So, as most of you might not know, I am busy plugging away at my final draft of my novel, Holding on To Grace, and also fleshing out my NaNoWriMo Novel a bit more. (It’s a few days before NaNo and I hit a plot roadblock! *Cue panic attack* ) But anyways, I am here today, to kind of brag about my wicked awesome Beta Reader/Editor/Crit Partner Person. (and you will get a chance to brag later too 😉 Don’t worry)

You all might know her and her awesomeness already, (if you are familiar with out Co-Authored blog Pen Pals of Peculiar Personalities) so she may or may not need much introduction….She’s actually probably reading this post now….Anywho. This awesome person I’ve mentioned is Vanessa.

*Cue bragging*

Okay, guys seriously. Vanessa is great! One of the best Critique Partners I ever had. Now, as I went through my manuscript (Which Vanessa was adding editing notes and such like an awesome critique partner does) and was working on my editing, I stumbled upon some amazing little gems that I just had to share with you all.

As I was reading through my manuscript I kept finding these little, personal comments about what she was thinking as the story went on and, to be honest, most of them made me laugh. Apparently I can break one’s feels and such. ( Mwahahaha)

As I read through my manuscript, I took pictures on my IPod of each comment as I went, and I am now very excited to share them with you all. I think by showing you these you will all start to love Vanessa and her awesomeness, even more. (Hey, its also a win win situation because this is also giving you a sneak peak into my novel.

Pretty Awesome, right? Vanessa stated by adding these comments she was adding her own personal touch to the manuscript to make her feel like less of a meanie. (Vanessa might think she’s mean cause she’s harsh with her editing but there is a difference. She’s not as mean as she might think) Anyways, to be honest Vanessa’s awesome little comments pushed me to actually edit, cause then I would get to the next big scene (editing along the way) and find another comment on a certain scene.

Okay! Question time!

1.) Do you have a Crit Partner/Editor/Beta Reader who you really appreciate (or find awesome)? Why? Comment below I would LOVE to hear from you! (and its a time of shootouts to the awesome people who help us all through the writing process)

2.) Which comment(s) or Vanessa’s was your favourite? I had a lot of personal favourites but a couple of them were: #’s 1, 3, 12, 15, 16, 19 and 20

I would love to hear from you! So comment below and talk to me! (you know how much I love to talk)
