I’ve returned my feedback to everyone on the Week 1 assignment. Overall, everyone picked up on the main issues with the synopsis: the suspense aspect was overshadowing the development of the love relationship; Ian (the ex-husband) got way more attention than the other supposed MC, Raphael; we didn’t get a strong sense that love was what was happening between Raphael and Ruby.
People reported a variety of reactions to the published romances they’ve read, which was interesting to see. I hope this aspect of the assignment made sense and was worthwhile; it’s the first time I’ve included outside material like this in a DE class.
Chime in with thoughts and questions about Week 1 here. The Week 2 materials are available in the classroom and tomorrow I’ll post some discussion questions for Week 2.
