Tensy Farlow and the Home for Mislaid Children

2010-01-01TensyFarlow by Jen Storer

When I first began writing Tensy Farlow I became quite overwhelmed by the story. It was the first major piece of fiction I had written and it quickly became much more elaborate than I intended. I wondered how I was ever going to rein it in, let alone finish it. I sent the incomplete manuscript to Virginia Lowe’s assessment agency as I knew I needed an unbiased, informed opinion. Jennifer Dabbs provided me with a wonderfully detailed critique. Her comments were extremely helpful and her enthusiasm for the story was hugely reassuring. We cannot write in isolation, especially when we are starting out. It is impossible to be objective about our own work, and writing groups and family are not always capable of giving us the detailed feedback we need. That’s why it is so important that we take advantage of dedicated, reputable agencies such as Virginia’s. As far as I’m concerned they are vital to our professional development and to our peace of mind. Thank you, Virginia and Jennifer!
