One thing that I have a lot of difficulty with is looking at my own work with an unbiased eye. I suspect that is a problem many writers have.
For the first time, I have heard (if not read) what it is like for my audience. I am listening to the Mik Murdoch, Boy Superhero audio book proof and it is very strange for me. I’m not doing the narration so I am hearing someone else’s interpretation of the book.
It is giving me a brand-new appreciation of the story.
It is a lot of fun laughing at scenes (or being moved in other ways) simply from the reading of the story. I have a better idea of what works for the audience and what doesn’t.
The best thing is, the book will be available in audio very, VERY soon!
I can’t wait to share it with you all.
