COLD FEET, WARM HEART
My inspiration today is my goofy interpretation:
Not fair to complain when the northeast is in the dregs of winter, but I moved to California for the weather, right?
Still, it pays to remember not showing one’s feelings does not signify lack of feeling.
BETA READER QUESTIONNAIRE
Today, I sent 21 of my beta readers for my next young adult, fantasy series about a girl who can see spirits the following questionnaire. I hope they are not afraid to be honest. I’m counting down the days until my editor sends her comments, and I can dig into rewrites!
A. Did the story hold your interest from the beginning?
B. Was there enough conflict, tension, and intrigue to keep your interest?
C. Was the ending satisfying? Believable?
D. Did the setting interest you, and did the descriptions seem vivid and real to you?
E. Could you relate to the main character? Did you feel her pain or excitement?
F. Were the other characters believable, interesting, distinct, and likeable?
G. Did the dialogue keep your interest and sound natural to you?
