Re: Novel Excerpt

First of all, thank you so much to everyone who replied...you gave me a lot of good advice that I'll absolutely use. Yes, I'm sorry, I should have said that this is not the beginning of the novel, but about 1.5 chapters in. It might also help to explain that the main character (Elizabeth) is actuall...

Re: Novel Excerpt

Thanks for taking the time to read it and for your comments :) I suppose it is a bit confusing...I sometimes forget people aren't in my head.

Nope, all appropriate, all PG (for violence, you know).

Novel Excerpt

Well. I won't say too much, except that this is my first time actually posting something I've written for critique. This is an excerpt from a novel I've been working on for years, and I'm in the final stages now (I hope). That is all :) Oh and I hope this isn't too long, but it would have been odd t...

Re: What do you claim to have read, and why?

Interesting that people lie about reading the Bible. And that so few people have actually read it.

I lied about reading some of the more tedious classics, but then I realized if someone was going to judge me based on what I have or have not read, I didn't really want to hang with them anyway :wink:

Re: I <3 You.

Of course! Personally I can't believe everyone who writes anything doesn't use this.

Don't worry, the eloquence comes and goes. *speaks in LOLs*

I <3 You.

I know many, many people have said how much they love Scrivener, but I wanted to add my bit. I've only been using the trial version and I'm already addicted. Completely. If Scrivener was a man, I would marry him. Like a lot of people, I've used Windows/Microsoft Word since I had to write my first es...
