Who fixes my mistakes?
For instance, after Elijah told the king “no more rain,” I let a cloud drop a cool Mediterranean shower on Obadiah. Until Jessy Alvarado, a critiquing buddy, caught it.
Although I did not let Elijah discuss helicopters or syringes, I did allow “mothballs” and “certifiable” to slip into early drafts. So embarrassing to discover that mothballs were invented in 1820. My friend Ava says these jolts cause “literary whiplash.”
I thank the Lord for friends who check the facts.
Please show me glitches.
- Typos hide. They think it’s a game.
- Implausible plot twists sneak in during the night.
And if you would be so kind as to do a serious critique of a chapter, ask and ye shall receive it in MS Word format.
