The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. – George Bernard Shaw – Irish Playwright (1856-1950)
I recently found this quote sent to me in a daily app I check and I wanted to share it. I find that this is the main reason why I need people to review my work. I’ve had characters that I thought would be hero’s turn out to be villains in another’s eyes. I’ve had scenes I thought I described well confuse people. I’ve had scenes that I thought needed no description trip people up.
As a new author, I am having people encourage me to develop my short stories. However, I want to turn out as many of these as possible. I figure it is better to learn to write well the first time (or as accurate as possible).
