I have officially passed the halfway mark. I can tell I am getting better. I can see what my stories need by finding it either in other stories I am reading or by what is missing in others stories.In the critique group I am in I find the words of a description that works well or that is missing all together and point that out. I try to find the holes in my own stories. I think the hardest thing for me right now is getting through the revision. For lesson six I wrote a story about the character I developed in lesson five. Moving n to lesson seven, I have the choice of revising lesson two, four or six or making a new fiction or nonfiction piece.
I am choosing to revise lesson four, a nonfiction piece. I really hope to have something publishable by the end of the year.
