I accomplished the impossible today! My husband has ZERO interest in reading...yes it's true...isn't that ironic? His wife is aspiring to be a well-known author, and he doesn't care about reading. I was having trouble re-writing (yes AGAIN) my first chapter, and I asked him to just let me read it to him.
It wound up achieving two great things...(1) he was pulled into my story and started helping me re-write it, and (2) it helped me 'hear' the story. One of my publishing books suggested reading your book aloud to get a sense of what doesn't sound right, etc.
