I Have Written a Novel

I've taken the time and focus to write a novel and see it through to printing. 227 People

    Wondrous Experience

    When I found myself unemployed last year, I took a week to read the entire Twilight series, then two to read the Anita Blake seires, another one for the Merry Gentry series (yes, I love Laurell K. Hamilton) then looked for books that did not include any vampires or fairies...

    New Work In Progress

    I've written a few things, had one published which was a translation of a Japanese novel. Right now I'm working on a fictional story.  My goal is 200 pages and so far 22 are complete.  I've spent a lot of time rewriting, improving so it's slow going but fun.  I'm...

    And Just Got My 5th Rejection

    A 5th literary agent has rejected my approach. This one really pissed me off, for it was one of those auto emails. This mob did not even have the common human courtesy to read it (max: 30 minutes; if intent on rejecting all and every new submission, 2 minutes). Their name...

    It's About Revision, Actually.

    From my first draft which took 7 weeks and had 80k words, I ended up writing an additional 14k words and expanding on several characters including the main character.  Get yourself a personal editor that you trust will argue with you and not just take a check.  It will...

    Excitement!

    I have finally found an idea for a book I think is worth reading. I won't disclose the details but the way the book will be written is a series of letters and then police reports after each one. It will be set up like a case file. At the end I may include the manuscript of the...

    Into the West

    I started writing my novel in about 8th grade, but the ideas had been with me for years before that. If you want to get technical, I wrote a Fantasy novel, and the land it was based in could be considered my 'happy place', haha. Anyway, the book went through many revisions, and...

    I Must Be Good!

    I've written a couple actually, not that I've actually ever published any of them, sigh, it's so hard to do nowadays. I don't mind, I started writing when I was 5 and actually got a short story in a magazine sometime in my teens. I reckon I must be good for that to happen.

    Well, I have, but it exists in MS form only. I struggle to find a literary agent. These are among the hardest people on capitalist Earth to please. It is, I think, almost impossible to invade their inner sanctums of self pleasure and profit making. While I admit I have been...

    It took over a year but I wrote a book about domestic violence that I endured back in 1992 when I was in HS.  It was really HARD to write because I had to go through remembering all those horrific details that I wanted to forget.  But, I am quite pleased...
