i had countless readers in group projects who submitted a file and got a pl note and never came back to do the edits. at the end of the project, i edited their file myself so that we could catalog. im guessing that other bcs have the same experiences, and that this story makes up a lot of the number.Oxenhandler wrote:I contend there is a break in the feedback loop - at "PL okay!" There needs to be a relational hook for readers to come back. They have a strong desire to put themselves (their voice) out there and they need to know they're being heard. Otherwise, they don't stick around. It's why we calp and boo at the theater.
i think that there are a lot of people who think that recording audiobooks is cool, but then they discover they hate editing. they recorded one section, struggled through editing, and then could never bring themselves to do it again. and thats ok, since this, as any hobby, is not for everyone.
