Re: Rebel in Remission; dark Literary Fic/coming of age

Wow, thanks for all the input! Not often that people are so helpful. Yeah, I'm not sure what to call it (coming of age?) she's a junior in college. I'm glad you liked it. And I'm off to fix my commas : )

Want a Crit Partner? Yea, me too!

My WIP is Rebel In Remission, a gritty lit fic that follows Rocky, a feisty undergrad with a closet full of skeletons. It is character driven with a suspenseful plot. I like to push social boundaries (or maybe buttons) in family, love, success, and drugs. I took the first two months of this MS to le...

Re: Share your opening sentence!

Good God, leaving was a really bad idea . Opens my prologue. I lied to everybody, but not because I needed to or because I wanted to. It's just hard to tell the truth when you lie to yourself more than anyone else. Opens my Ch 1 PS, I'm looking for a Crit Partner if anyone is interested : ) Genre i...

Title: Rebel in Remission Genre: Dark Literary Fiction December Good God, leaving was a really bad idea. I never intended to break it off. At the time it just seemed like a bold way to stand my ground, but I forgot one crucial detail. She didn’t know that. You’d never believe such a tiny person coul...

Re: Rebel in Remission; dark Literary Fic/coming of age

THANK YOU! hahaha, this is the kind of stuff that slips past me from time to time! See, when I picture the story in my head, Alex is listening to music and not until Rocky storms in screaming does he hear anything over his headphones. Not sure how I missed that.. thanks!

Rebel in Remission; dark Literary Fic/coming of age

And to be honest (for once), I liked it that way. It was easier. November The engine purred awake with no more than the push of a bu...

Re: Query: We Are Chosen

I have to say, though I'm running late and can't say much, this is a very intriguing concept! I love the guts you must have to propose such a controversial dystopia, and nothing sells like controversy. Truly shocking material is almost impossible to create in contemporary society, just about nothing...
