How is that possible? Well, I read a few chapters and found them to be unsatisfying. Boring even. Yet, I couldnt’ figure out why. There was conflict. The characters were acting in-character. There were good hooks in and out. There was nothing wrong with the locations.
However, something was missing.
Decided to print out the pages and look at them old-school. I took them downstairs with me to eat lunch. I read them all, spread them out on the table, and tried to look at them with fresh eyes.
Then, somewhat pleased with myself, I took time to enjoy the view. And fell in love.
