As a writer I get lots of feedback regarding my work. Take my debut novel for example: The Leopard Vanguard. Despite receiving top-notch reviews on both amazon & goodreads, many have complained about the “slow-start” and “difficult” beginning. I’m fully aware these days the diminishing attention-span that plagues most readers, if a book doesn’t grab their attention in the first few pages, it’s time to move on.
This is when I often tell them that they need to read on, to be patient, for once they get past the “difficult” beginning, they’re rewarded with a great middle and ending.
While I take into account every piece of advice, there are just some scenes or prologues that cannot be changed.
So how does this tie into life? Read on and I’ll gladly explain.
Let’s say you’re learning a new skill for the first time. Is it easy? Maybe, but for most of us we struggle with the task until we finally accomplish our goal, learning it, and then we flourish doing it, enjoying it in the process.
That’s how I see it.
If you’ve got a comment, I’d love to hear your feedback, whether you agree or disagree.
See you next time!
