Writing Can Be Murder

Won’tchya be, won’tchya be, won’tchya be my reader?

Did you hear Mr. Rogers as you read that title? I heard him loud and clear in my head.

I HATE asking people to read my manuscripts. I’m not talking about asking agents, or editors, or even other writers (much). That’s business.

I’m talking about asking regular readers — friends or at least someone I have a friendly relationship with for what I consider to be a monumental favor.  I always feel like a door-to-door salesman.

“I’ve got this shiny new manuscript. Why don’t you give it a spin and let me know what you think of it?”

I asked someone today and was SO relieved when he said yes. Now I must creep up on my next unsuspecting victim…unless of course someone would like to volunteer?
