I’m currently writing/posting a werewolf romance/NA story, so far I’ve posted 11 chapters and the response has been relatively good considering it is in such a popular genre. My trouble is that at the moment, I’m re-writing some pretty key scenes regarding the MC’s history (not posted these yet, obviously) and I’m struggling with it sounding forced and clumsy. The ‘reveal’ is around 30,000 words deep and I know if I continue to drag it out further, it would interfere with the main plot and/or discourage the reader from reading any further.
I’ve been lucky enough to get a fellow wattpadder to proofread for me, which is great and I’m sure it will ultimately help. I just can’t seem to shift this feeling that it reads very linear and I don’t know if it’s just my insecurity as a writer or if I’m onto something that needs rectified.
