Ime Atakpa | 82 comments Hey all! There's a thread with tips for how to approach beta reading. I thought it might also be helpful to start a separate one for everyone to share how they incorporate beta comments into their next draft. I'm going to start with something simple and maybe a little obvious. Everyone feel free to add your own.

*Don't take every comment for gospel. All writers would love if their work was universally praised, but you shouldn't make concessions for every criticism. Only YOU know what you want the story to be and even the best beta reader can be "wrong" about certain elements of your story.

Gina Karasek | 38 comments How about:

Get more than one (preferably many) beta readers. Then look for overall trends in their comments/suggestions. If one person says something is off, but no one else does- it's probably ok. If most of them say something is off- you probably need to look at it.
