I have been working on the conclusion of the book. I think that it is coming together well. When I first began writing, I was not sure if I would know where to finish. But now that I am getting close, I feel good about it.
Danielle read my manuscript a couple of months ago when I had about 75% of written. I was a little nervous about handing it over to her. I knew that she would be encouraging, but still I did not know if what I was writing would be appealing to anyone else.
She was encouraging while giving some helpful feedback on some of the chapters. I have made edits to most of them, but I still have a couple that I want to go back and work on.
I have also asked a couple of people who work for Arrow to read the manuscript when I am finished. I want to get feedback from someone who is working with other foster and adoptive families.
I am sure that I will feel a little apprehensive when I let someone else read it, just like I did when Danielle first read what I had written. But, I know if I want to become good at writing, I need to get feedback from people that I trust.
