Two Comments...and my heart's a-swelling.

So I return home from school to two magnificent comments from fellow writers on 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.

  1. Are you able to make the changes to the story and put it back up?

  2. I, too, am always thrilled to get constructive criticism. Anytime you find something that allows me to make my novel even a little bit better it has to be a good thing!

  3. Christina: I am able too, but I don't think I'll be able to do so until I'm back from Florida next week. My mind is swimming with excitement, I can barely focus enough to write.

    Lisa K: Isn't constructive criiticism amazing?! I used to cringe at it but my love for making the best work ever super ceeds that feeling of "oh gods, I DON'T wish to change it!" Thanks for reading my blog, by the way. =]
