Of course, objectively, but... moreso in terms of mindset. Does anyone else find it difficult to read your own work as a new reader would? To put yourself in that mindset? I sometimes try to read my work as if I were someone reading it for the first time, and fear that my not curious immersion into a line of plot (as I would hope a new reader reacts) is a sign of fault in my writing. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited about my plot, and passionate about my writing as an author, and creator, but how should I react to it when attempting to be a reader? Is it possible, or wishful thinking in my attempt to sustain a double persona who know the same things? Perhaps it is neither, and I'm just bad at writing. Do any of you have the same problem?
