Re: How long do you take to finish a draft/ WIP?

It really depends how much time I have on my hands...Just like you guys. Some days are off and some are on.

Re: Query - The Coming

Thanks guys, but I've also recently got rejections based on it and am wanting to move it up a notch. What do you guys think of this? Dear Agent, Vitiosus asks his father, the king of Lassertia, “What if I don’t want to become the devil? What if I don’t want to turn into you?” Vitiosus is the prince ...

Query - The Coming

While I am revising my MS for a publisher, I thought I'd tweak my query and send it out (just to see if I can get another fish on my hook :) I did and thus far I have 3 partial requests out of six queries. Not bad...I am psyched. Actually, much better than with my previous query so yay! But ignore t...

Re: Query: The Guardian's Code

I know you are going away to think...Like all us writers do, but I will still provide my feedback on your latest. Keep in mind that I didn't read the first and take my comments with a grain of salt. Shadow. Fifteen-year old Griffin Tutela doesn’t believe his grandma’s stories about the huge wilderne...

Re: Your first Pargraph!

Someone was going to die today. There was no other choice: it was kill or die. Vitiosus stared at the tall, bulky warrior and took a deep breath. He stepped forward. Gravel crunched below his feet and wisps of wind swirled about his head as he calculated his chances. With one final glance toward hi...

Re: Your first Pargraph!

Great idea on this thread. Here's my feedback--just some suggestions that I hope help! Someone was going to die today. There was no other choice: it was kill or die or be killed . Vitiosus stared at the tall, bulky (bulky doesn't sound very dangerous. Maybe a more intimidating adjective?) warrior a...

Re: Your first Pargraph!

Mine has changed from what I entered and I'm still not happy with it: Whispers about the outsider’s capture seem to be everywhere I turn today, but I’m trying to ignore the chatter. It’s not to say I lack curiosity about his arrival, because I’m most certainly curious, but knowing I’ll be face-to-f...

Re: Your first Pargraph!

And my paragraph (almost forgot to post it) if anybody would have time to take a look . . . I’m going to get one thing established right away, so we don’t have any misunderstandings: this story does not have a happy ending. If you were hoping I’d tell you that everything you heard on the news was a...

Your first Pargraph!

Since Nathan is now running the first paragraph contest and I read through some amazing entries, I felt a need to begin a thread about it so that we can post our first pargraphs and discuss them. What we like, what we don't, what we need to improve and I think it would be cool to call a first parag...

Re: WAITING

Waiting is a part of life. I hate it to. I am impatient, but I find other things like piano, guitar and athletics to take over my mind, thus I forget about the waiting and progress in a different area. :) Luck!!!
