Finley Says...............

A fortunate writer will have 8 people who review their work on a somewhat constant basis.

6 of these people should know nothing about writing. They should simply reveal whether or not they enjoyed what you wrote.

2 of the people should be writers. These people will focus on the technical aspect of what you are doing.

So after hearing this Klecko asks Finley.....

"Why wouldn't a guy just ask 8 writers to review his work?"

Finley was silent.

Then he laughed.

"Because writers are mean people by nature. They don't have it in them to be encouraging. Most writers will tear your confidence to shreds, if you give them the chance."

  1. I said you should create an audience of about eight people, and write with them in mind. Eight writers would pull you in a weird direction. One or two are OK, if they are also your friends.
