Thanks for your question, Cheryl.
The reviews I've had so far mirror the feedback I got from my beta readers, minus the revisions I made from their comments, of course. I write for the pleasure of writing, and to share my ideas with others, and it's always interesting to hear what different people hone in on for comments... some on plot, some on character, some on how they identified with one or the other. So far the reviews have been pretty consistently good, no real surprises. What have I learned? To get solid input from other writers in my community before I put my story out to a broader audience.(less)

Giving Back / Paying Forward

Anyone setting out today to get rich writing had better have their head examined. Their odds of winning the lottery are far better. I write because I can’t not. It keeps my brain engaged, it links me to a community of like-minded people, it forces me to constantly learn new ways to approach the craft, it gets me in front of people to market my wares, and, best of all, I enjoy doing it, all of it.

Elle Otero answered Patricia Bowen's question: Elle Otero
I would like to spend much more time writing than I actually do, but while juggling a full-time job/PhD program and spending time with family, I would say I sit down to write about a chapter a week, which translates to about a page per day. My proces See Full Answer
