First Impressions

Yesterday I handed over the pages of my book to the first person I will have critique it. They aren’t anywhere near finished; this isn’t an editor. I just want someone I consider more knowledgeable on the subject to evaluate my arguments. Is it easy to follow and clearly stated? I want to see if what I’ve written makes sense to anyone not currently in residence in my head.

Now I’m in the waiting stage. There are a million things I still need to do for the book, but today I want to take a moment or two to feel a sense of accomplishment for getting this far. I have outlined my arguments and chosen my sources. I have a strategy for how to employ quotes from the interviews I’ve conducted and will conduct. I’m celebrating my productivity…and trying not to worry about what my reader thinks about it.
