I wrote a novel!

Postby shon maxx » Thu Nov 30, 2017 2:09 pm

This month, there was a challenge to write a novel in a month. Since I've started several but never finished, I took the challenge.

Here are my results:

Thanks! There’s a second contest in the spring but on a smaller scale.

Now I can get back to THW!

Awesome sauce! If you feel comfortable, go ahead and post it, love to read what you've created!

Thanks, but it's a pretty big file to post here (154 pages). That and I'm not 100% confident in sharing it publicly yet. If anyone is interested in reading it, message me and i'll email it, but I'm not yet ready to post it here. And it's not just a lack of confidence or being my own worst critic. When I wrote it, I deliberately focused on word count over everything else, even to the point of stretching out entire chapters for what would normally be short scenes.

No worries, I've registered at the site...can't say I have much in mind yet.

Cool, I’m vypernight there. They’re between events right now, but you can get advice and ideas from other people there. I think what helped me was hearing that other people had the same problems with confidence, self doubt, and procrastination.
