Is there a danger of a story being stolen? Is there a need to have them protected with a copyright? Jim

Re: Looking for an extra set of eyes re: balance issues

I would be happy to help. I also have several things that i wouldn't mind someone looking at. How do we start? I have to warn you, I am not a big pure fantasy fan. However I would certainly remain objective and give it my best shot. Jim

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Thanks for the reply is it OK if I call you Ismael? You know I recently read Moby Dick. People talk about it being a classic, brilliant, or on a pedestal.

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Thanks for reply. I am going to write what I am inspired to write, and things that I have faith in, I hope it fits in with Writers of the Future, which I hold in very high regard. It is very generous of you to spend your time responding and helping strangers. Good luck to all. Jim

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!
