Whether you loved it, hated it, or had mixed results, I want to hear about it! (Seriously.) Fill out the form below to gimme me all your thoughts!
I read all submissions, and I may quote parts of your feedback in Testimonials for my services and products. If you're not okay with that—and that is 100% okay—be sure to say so in the form below. ( * fields are required)
Why did you sign up for the Backstory Email Series? What did you generally hope to get out of the experience? Was there any particular problem you wanted help with? *
In what ways did the first article (about the four different types of backstory: Stats, Surface Desires, Morality, and Psychological Factors) help you better understand your characters and what they need?
Did the Backstory Formula from the first article help you better understand how to write a COMPLETE character backstory? And if so, why? (If not, how can I make it better?)
What Aha! Moments did you discover while reading the second email and article that focused on how to write backstory into a scene without infodumping? Were any of these techniques new to you (and do you plan to use them)?
Did the question I proposed in the Unstick Your Story Draft article (the character's difficult late-story decision) seem useful for busting through writer's block? And how did it change the way you think about the character arcs in your stories?
In what ways did the Emotional Transformation Ladder in that same article (Unstick Your Story Draft) help you understand where the gaps in your current story (or writing process) may be?
What was your favorite part of this email/article series and why? How has it changed (or how will it change) the way you approach your writing? *
Would you recommend the Backstory Email Series to other writers? Why (or why not)? And who is it best suited for? *
Any final thoughts or Aha Moments you want to share? (Even if they're critical)
I'd be honored to use parts of your feedback in my promotional materials and on my website. May I have your permission to do that? (If not, that's totally fine. I'll keep your thoughts private and just use them to improve the course.) *
If yes above: If you do not have a Gravatar (or your avatar didn't automatically display and you see the default picture above) and you have a professional photo you'd like me to use in place of the default, tell me how to find your preferred image.
Thanks so much for helping me make this email series even better. <3 You rock!
