But just about every writer has been in the position of reader, whether paid or not. It requires blunt honesty. And the more seasoned the reader, the more blunt honesty you’ll get.
Those stamps you see in the picture aren’t a joke. Many readers I’ve known have ordered stamps for the more chronically repeated gaffes made by writers. Personally, I’d often considered but never followed through on ordering a “Who?!” stamp. Every time a writer assigned dialogue or action to the wrong character because they took even less time investing personality into their characters than I’d even spent reading it, that stamp would’ve been such stress relief to apply with vigor. Yes, every reader has their peeves.
