I have no name for I am but 2 days old ;).
Did you finish the novel?I got some really useful, advanced feedback on some parts of my novel manuscript. The reader had read like 10 % of the whole thing, and there was a comment that really made me wonder.
The comment was this: "A family that is about to break apart is a great theme, and I think that there are lots of people who can relate to this."
The problem is this: This is not my main theme. Only the 10 % part I sent to him were about family issues.
So I am currently going back and forth and wondering if I should make it the main theme, and if so, how should it be done. I am also kind of frustrated because I really like the novel but I can't see that much of publishing potential on it. On the other hand I have spent hundreds of hours working on it.
I don't know what to do.
