Welcome back to our “10 Steps to Publication” series! In our previous steps, we’ve embarked on a journey of manuscript shaping. If you’ve missed any of those previous steps – identifying your audience, unleashing a brain dump, crafting a strategic plan, and embracing the concept of the “shitty first draft” – fret not, you can catch up at your own pace.
Now, as we dive into Step 5, we’re approaching a crucial phase in your writing process – beta reading. In this video, aptly titled “5 Essential Questions to Ask Your Beta Readers,” we’re unraveling the mystery of selecting the right people, ensuring constructive feedback, and refining your manuscript for its grand debut, all in under 6 minutes!
Your journey to publication is gaining momentum. As you eagerly anticipate the feedback from your beta readers, remember that you sought the input of your beta readers not to find approval, but to uncover the hidden gems of improvement. Embrace their observations and each critique as a step toward perfection.
Stay open to the transformative power of feedback, and get ready to refine your manuscript with the next phase in the process: Step 6, “Professional Editing”.
Thank you for embarking on the “10 Steps to Publication” adventure with us. Stay dedicated, and let your words flow!
