Elise Manion asked Lynsay Sands:

Lynsay, After you publish your work, do you have a hard time reading it as a reader would? I've recently self-published, and I find it difficult to go back and read my story as a reader because I'm constantly wanting to change things. I'm curious if other authors have this same problem. Sincerely, Elise

Lynsay Sands I've learned NOT to go back and read, at least not until a lot of time has passed. Problem then is, I read them and think "Wow! I USED to be able to write. Now I suck." LOL. We're always self critical in one way or another Elise
