I had a beta reader suggest that my characters needed to be more dragon-y. I don’t know why, since they weren’t dragons in the first place. No. Really. They’re just random human-type humans.
To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever written a particularly dragon-y character.
And I’m always a little surprised when it turns out that people actually like what I’m writing. One of the best experiences I’ve had was getting on the internet, and realizing that people are actually coming back for more of my stories. You can see things like that on the internet. People moving through your website.
I need more readers. They’re the thing that gets me through, some days.
