REAL Readers

My editing is about done and then I'll be ready to find some readers. These will be people who are not writers. That's because I've made a startling discovery. Once I began to learn things about writing, such as backstory, dialogue, adverbs, etc. I lost my pleasure in reading. I became a judge rather than a reader. And it really stunk. Now, thank goodness, I'm learning how to ignore the critic within, but for a while I was so worried that I wouldn't ever be able to enjoy reading again.
So now I'm on a quest for Beta readers (people who'll read for pleasure) and they'll be able to spot plot holes because they won't get hung up on every "broken" rule.
I hope. :-)
