Benefits of Reading Aloud

Last Wednesday night I read out loud my story I have been working on for the Out of the Dark anthology at my local writer’s group. Came back with some fantastic feed back about the story, plus it showed me a few sentences and some parts that I have missed in the story to expand upon.

The opening of the story has some small issues that after discussion with those who had attended, and now have decided to rewrite the whole first half in a new direction, whilst still keeping the 2nd half. For those who want a taste of the story, it features usage of cyrogenics, virtual reality, sleeper ships. The first half features a lot of the virtual reality and being attached to an automaton monitoring and then heads into the physical world for the 2nd half. The first half is now going to really add more to show the juxtaposition between being connected to the VR and automaton at the same time.

So now begins the fun process of changing the first half of the story.
