Why I may not like your book

I saw a movie the other night with friends. A movie we thought would be fun to watch and provide us with the humor we all desperately needed. But the movie was not good; so not good that I was glad when it finally ended and I could move on to having dinner with my friends.

Why did I dislike the movie so much?



There were no suprises. The movie was dull and predictable.

The drama seemed deliberately created rather than arising naturally or spontaneously.

Whether writing a script for a movie or a manuscript for a book, don’t allow your reader to feel like I felt at the last movie I attended with my friends.

Sharing the journey,
