UPDATE: I pulled the guide from smashwords because the formatting had too many errors. I am releasing it on Amazon in paperback, because it looks nice there. It’s full color, but not full 8X11. It’s a smaller size pocket guide. Are you a writer who gives yourself excuse after excuse for not finishing that story […]
Using the picture book Fish is Fish by Leo Lionni I examine character arc and how it’s okay to backtrack and to allow your character to fail. I also look at character POV and using that to surprise the reader when things aren’t the way the MC imagined.
Her writing, whether sad or joyful is as powerful as anybody’s but with a heartwarming factor that puts a smile on your face even in the most troubled times. I’m not sure how she pulls that off but perhaps because there is a purity in her writing that can’t help but resonate with every reader. – @Neelt2001

Thank you so much for reading. I’m beginning to look at all the helpful comments and the feedback is great and hilarious at times.— Shannon💀🌊 (@TheWriteRambler) May 16, 2020
“You were so quick to turnaround 5 chapters – close to 50 pages almost. You provided basically a comment on each page, identifying a passage or line that was confusing, redundant, or could otherwise be improved. To me, that showed more than just a reader’s perspective but also an editor’s. You would comment on fixes I should have worked through already, like writing ‘you’ instead of ‘your’ or removing an extra comma, and you also noted your reactions at various points throughout which is great to help me understand how the reader might react. – Shannon @TheWriteRambler
