Included with the thrilling story of The Martian is a short essay by author Andy Wier that gave me much food for thought. In this essay, he describes the origins of the story that began as a story he gave away for free. Over time he got feedback from readers that helped him sculpt the story into a best-selling novel that went on to become a movie.
This sounds like the way for me to go with getting my novels published. I can post my rough drafts of my story on this blog and use your feedback to make it even better. Who knows, maybe my novel too will become the next big seller. Maybe there will even be a movie version starring Matt Damon. I’m ready to give this a try if you all are.
