At first I didn’t complete Part 2 of last weeks Weekly Writing Challenge: Forms because I only had two readers respond to my form requesting comments on Chapters one and two of my Through the Door story. One was an accident (they thought it was another story), and the other was my daughter, who gave me a fabulous thumbs up, by the way:
|Did you notice the main characters were not named?||Yes|
|What should their names be?||Robert and Chloë|
|What do you like in the story?||descriptions, and dialogue|
|What do you NOT like in the story?||WAITING!!!|
|Who are you? (name, blog URL, alias…)||Your favorite Daughter….|
Another 100 or so submissions like this one and I would be doing a happy dance.
Alas, there is no dancing.
Am I disappointed? Sure. Am I devastated? No.
There are a million reasons people don’t take the time to submit a survey. I get that. Because I LOVE my readers, followers and family, I forgive your non-participation, and I will assume your reasons were legitimate. Reasons like – You love the story, but…
- You read very slow.
- You forgot to pay your internet provider.
- You misplaced your laptop/iPad/Kindle/iPhone…
- The hospital you’re in banned WiFi.
- Stomach flu (can’t get your head out of the pot?).
- What you want to say is best not said on the internet.
- You follow so many blogs that you can’t possibly respond to them all.
I have several long-time readers that would probably call me on a shoddy story (see my favorites list), so… I must believe that those who read the draft it are happy with it.
