Some weeks ago I ran into an old friend of mine who now is a college level professor for creative writing. I ran my story idea past him and he volunteered to review what I have to this point and treat it as if it were a manuscript being prepared for a publisher.
This might be good or bad news depending on how it all comes back. He actually wants to run it through his staff and students and see what happens.
Who knows? Maybe this time I'll get it right and find someone who wants to publish it.
