Just got my latest story back from my first reader. He loved it. He gave me some ideas on how to improve on the overall theme of the story, and I agree. So I am going to back to work on the story to plug some things in that will address minor issues, but leave the overall story the same.
Also, I am entering the manuscript into a contest. This was a last minute decision, but I hope to at least get some feedback on the manuscript. We’ll see.
Now, back to work!
