Next Step - write the interview narrative. The Beta Draft is due October 31 and November 1.
What is a Beta Draft? During my time working at a book store, I listened to author Jim Butcher speak at Mysterious Galaxy one evening and he mentioned that he would be lost without his Beta Readers. Butcher discussed how he has a hard time writing a woman's voice. He said that he is more interested in writing the fight scenes then the love scenes. With that in mind, Butcher uses his beta groups to help him with voice. I loved this idea. Many of my students want to just type, print, and turn in. If they participate in Beta Reading groups, then they have a chance to read other's work and get feedback on their work, all of this before they turn in their paper for a grade.
Happy Reading and Writing,
