Short stories

So, last week I submitted a short story to my group. It’s — of course — paranormal erotic romance. Actually, it’s a story of the first Christmas for Scott and Calla from my release Dragos: Burned coming this Friday.

My critique group, those people I love so dearly, ripped it to shreds. See, here’s what I did.

I knew my opening, and my ending scene. So as I wrote it, I kept them in mind.

My group told me so.

They also told me I forgot to write the middle. My sex was great, if needed a little bit of softness and love. But they wanted to know where the middle was.

Where the plot was.

And it struck me how right they were (like usual).

I forgot to write the middle.

Oops.

Just one more of the endless reasons writers, at any stage of their writing, need a critique group.

I tip my hat, and once again say a huge THANK YOU to the 7ED 🙂
