Re: Which book have you read the most number of times?

When I was in third grade, I remember I had a book of short stories that I'm almost certain was named "A Rainbow in My Pocket" because that was one of the stories. I can not find this book anywhere, but I would buy it in a heartbeat if I could. It had a story about the princess with the shrieking ha...

Re: You know you've spent too much time editing when...

...you are reading a book that you've been waiting for (it's a series) and think, "Dear Lord, this was hardly edited at all, just look at that sentence structure!"

And immediately start to go for the red pen.

Re: Not even a partial

Meh. Expect the worst, hope for the best, and never be disappointed. Send off a query knowing they're going to reject you. Just know they're going to. Say, "Alright, I wrote this, this person is going to reject it because even super-awesome writers were rejected at least 30 times before being accept...

Re: Who first inspired you to read?

I can't remember a time I didn't know how to read. My mom was a pusher, which meant that we were early in everything. We potty trained early, we walked early, and as soon as the first word came out, we were learning to read and write. So I was reading before I was two according to my baby book. I wa...

Re: As a reader how do you feel about this?

I like realistic books. So if its realistic for the antag to get away, then I wouldn't mind it, and it opens it up to a sequel. Hoo-ray~! But why stop at one? Why not have a sprinkling of other characters? Do you have only one antag and one protag? Are there more people involved? :3 Make a web. It's...

Re: How do you get yourself to write?

Wait, I might have skipped over some of these replies because the title caught me but I'm confused. You have to get yourself to write? I can't not write! I constantly have ideas in my head that are tugging at my fingers. I want to write, right now. In fact, as I'm typing this, I think I would rather...

Re: How do you pick a beta?

I come from the NaNo forums because that was one of the places I was first enticed to finally get over my fear of writing. They have a place specifically for finding betas. I don't recommend having someone close to you do it for you, because they're too invested in you. You'll get one of two respons...

Re: The Introduction Thread

Hello everyone! I'm a twenty-eight year old (soon to be twenty-nine) female from Kentucky who has been telling stories her entire life to escape the world she lives in. Last year I finally decided to crack down, get over my incessant fear of completing a book, and joined NaNoWriMo. Now I have a comp...
