So I return home from school to two magnificent comments from fellow writers on Authonomy.com. And here's my book page:
The Dark World: A Beginning Book Page
I've posted the entire book up so you can view it through the seperate Chapters. And as the comments indicate, I'm quite certain I have to chop the book down, and not "overwrite." (What does that even mean?) So those are my new years revolutions (I know, I'm a bit late. Shush you.) and I'm-a sticking to 'em. I'm quite excited honestly to be going back to my book and to really chop it down to where it's [even more marketable], and more [reader friendly].
As my heart swells with the constructive critcizm I recieved (I'm just so happy that someone read it and LIKED it), I know what I have to do and I'm set about doing it. I'll just wait a bit to see what my fellow teacher (whom I've allowed to critize the book in an objective manner) says about the book -- which I think is the same as what I know to do with it.
On another note, I've acquired the copies of Nightlight and New Moan and I've laughed riotously over the first chapter of one of the books. Amazing. I love Parodies.
I'm signing off. Must go evaluate my book and all that writer-ness.
