Anyways, I really liked the feedback. I thought they made some awesome points and they really made me think of things I'd never thought of before. Also, because I know how I want it to read, I'll always read it the way I want to hear it- but it's nice to have someone read it with fresh eyes/ears and they can hear little mess-ups in the rhyme that I was previously blind/deaf to. I am now learning (yes, slowly but surely) the importance of critiques.
On a downer, I already submitted Sally Circle in it's original form to several publishers. Oops. Newbie Alert. Too late to judge me, but go ahead...I mean, I do deserve it, really.
What I want to ask the more experienced writers- does this mean I can't send an *edited* version of "Sally Circle" back to those publishing houses that got the original? Are they now out of the game, so to speak? Anything feedback is helpful!
