Re: Discussion: Q2, Volume 36

I took the first chapter of my first attempt at a novel and turned it into an HM. It is over 65,000 words as of today.
With the world built I have the option to write a series of books. So get that novel started, the beginning might be good enough to get you some recognition. wotf008

You've definitely illuminated this forum. And as tgitg pointed out you'll be lighting up the stage in a couple of months.

My turn for reading Algis Budry's Writing to the point came up on the Open Library. I'm sure I'll read it more than once.

You could write one of those nlp's into existence. The first 17,000 words or less might be good enough to get a win.
At the very least you will have started something new.

It's funny that you say that. In my hm most of the characters bit the dust one after the other.

That being said, Morgan's' advice is spot on. Signing up for Dave's daily emails is very helpful too. He tells you what he looks for in a story.

Re: Discussion: Q2, Volume 36

This quarter's entry might be my easiest one yet. I had a story around ninety percent finished for Q1 when another idea took center stage.

Of course, if another story appears I will write something new.
