Good for you, Charlee. Acronym n00b here -- What's "CP"?CharleeVale wrote:SQUEEEE!!!!
Okay, so this squee requires backstory.
On my recent Spring Break my father unintentionally gave me a fantastic plot idea. I kicked around, wrote a synopsis, and started showing it to my CPs. I also pitched it to my writing group. THEY LOVED IT. The amount of love they showed this book which I haven't even written yet was equal to or greater than the enthusiasm they had for the book I just finished.
Pretty much everyone told me to put my current book aside for later, because it's good, but this is better.
Also, recently, I won a contest for a 30 pg. critique, query critique, and skype call from Meredith Barnes. Well, I had that call today, and she loves it too! She said she thinks the premise is phenomenal, and had some really great criticism on my pages.
I'M JUST SO EXCITED!
By the way, I finished that first draft I mentioned a few posts above, clocking in at ~52K, which is approximately NaNo length. I started in mid-March and just finished this afternoon. Now I just have to print, set aside for awhile, and edit as necessary.
