I hate that moment when I’m revising to address a CP’s (completely valid) concern about the believability of my protagonist’s reaction to a certain situation, and I realize I need more feedback.
I don’t want to pester my CPs at all hours, yet I don’t know whether or not what I was trying to achieve in the first place came across at all, or is still coming across in the way I’ve changed the passage. I need my sounding board, but it’s not available.
“Hey! Does this work? No? How about now? Or now? … Can it be now yet?”
It’s a really weird combination of working in a vacuum and writing to my audience. And I’m feeling lost.
