Re: Dream Walker-Chapter One

Sorry it's taken me so long to respond here. I am still re-working the story based on some suggestions. I appreciate all of them, still working on that whole showing rather than telling thing though. Sorry that is advice I don't completely understand yet but I am researching it to see how I can best...

Dream Walker-Chapter One

Hey y'all, I thought that since you were so helpful with The Last Highway, I would put up the first part of another story I have been working on for a while now. This is actually the beginning of another story that I have started, a story that has already gone through many rewrites and will have to ...

Re: So do you have any foes on this site?

If it made a difference, I have found one on these here forums that would deserve to be foe'd by me. I don't want to name names, though I'm sure that anyone who follows this site religiously like I do would instantly know who I speak of. He or she has offered nothing to the site except a jumble of w...

Re: The Last Highway (working title)-Page 1

Looks as if you are receiving some fine advice here, but I just have a question. You said you are 7 pages into the story. Are you working from an outline? synopsis? Just curious. I am interested in how others work. good luck! John John, I don't do outlines, though sometimes I think I really should....

Re: The Last Highway (working title)-Page 1

***Updated*** The Last Highway Prologue I had already been driving too long. My eyes grew heavy and the lines in the middle of the road began to blur. The window was rolled down and the radio blared. I hoped the cool night air and noise would wake me enough. It didn't. The ghostly figure that appea...

Re: The Last Highway (working title)-Page 1

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their comments so far. I am in the process of adding those extras that everyone is asking for. It is a process. Aimee-I thought I would take a moment to ease your suspicions some-the creepy guy is NOT a vampire. I love to read stories about vampires bu...

Re: The Last Highway (working title)-Page 1

Regan, Thank you for the critique and the advice on pointing to the updated version. I will take much of what you said into consideration when I do another edit on this. I hope to post one soon and yes, I will edit the first post to point to the new one, sorry about that. You were correct on many po...

Re: VAMPIRE WRITERS

I am working on a story, not any that I have posted on here yet, that will have some vampires play a bit part as sideline characters. They are not the only sideline characters though, many characters that are believed to be myths will be introduced and individuals from another realm act as guardians...

Re: The Land Doesn't Leave

I love the title! The story was a bit too wordy for me though or maybe it was because the sentences were just too long. If you could keep some of that description and shorten the sentences, I think it would be a great read.

Re: Opening Scene; Soft Sci-Fi/Urban Fantasy; Critique?

1.) I am never sure about genre classification but if it has dragons in it then I think that the young adult audience would be interested. 2.) I tend to leave out names of specific persons in the beginning of my stories as well so this does not bother me at all. 3.) The term ALO, as used in the text...

Facebook, way too much sometimes, though not nearly as much as I spend on here now. I don't use Twitter at all, don't understand it.

Re: How old are you?

I am 40-ugh, just turned yesterday. I started writing maybe somewhere around the age of ten, I filled up paper with my writing attempts, kept it in a folder and in an angry attempt to clean my room, my stepmother ripped it all up and threw it away. When I entered high school, I did a better job keep...

Re: Do you have a new blog post?

February, just had to check out your blog-definitely entertaining. I have to admit that it was not until after going to Nathan's blog that I started mine. Not really sure why I did, don't even know if any one is looking at it despite my attempts. Updates to it are slow going but hey, I am just start...

Re: So who's entering Nathan's first page contest?

I entered and then went back and read everyone else's. All I can say is, it is a good thing I am not a literary agent. I would end up spending more time reading than submitting to publishers because almost every single one left me wanting to read more. What can I say, all of you that share your stor...

Re: "TOM'S" - Chapter One

I liked the metaphor about the apple, let me in just a little about the character, what he was like. Kind of gave me a sense of his attitude right off the bat.

I was hooked and left wanting more.
