It is about a space for people to discuss the new topic and writing in general.
I had some trouble thinking of what to put in this Work Room. It was really hard.
Finally though I think I came up with an angle to write about for the Work Room. It's not my best. But I hope you enjoy it.
It doesn't sound any better as the opening of a Work Room than it does in an entry.
We all have self doubt and we all struggle, hoping to showcase our best efforts. Yeah, sometimes it falls a little flat.
Most of the time though, it's probably not as bad you think it is - we tend to be our own worst critic after all. Which is why if you are having doubts, or even if you aren't, (because we also have blind spots!!) it might not be a bad idea to find a friend you trust to "beta read" for you.
Then again, maybe you don't need that. Or want it. But it's an option on the table, a tool to pick up and use when you need it.
What about you? Do you have a beta reader? Are you someone else's beta reader?
Do you find it helpful?
