I'm writing some story-based work on suburbia and I often feel like I'm extremely boring and verbose. I'm hoping that there are a few people out there who also grew up in the suburbs that can read it over to let me know if these are shared experiences. Also, I'm not expecting to write the Odyssey or anything, but I'd love feedback on how engaging it is to read.
Here's a working draft of what is probably the Preface to a short ebook/blog series. Before you can say, "HOLY FOOTNOTES," let me just pre-empt that with an, "I know."
What I don't know, and would love to know is:
- if my story bears any resemblance to yours (if so, which parts hit home?)
- how engaging or painfully boring it is to read (please be honest - I can take it)
- equally important, if you think your mom and dad would want to read it.
