My Fantasy Novel

Postby KingCarrot » Mon Nov 19, 2012 3:59 pm

I started writing a fantasy novel a while back and postponed it when I got ill, as my brain has taken some damage and I find it very difficult to concentrate or remember things lately. If I was to continue, it would take a lot of energy from me and I didn't know whether it was worth it. Having an inferiority complex makes it kinda difficult to judge my own work so I would LOVE some feedback from you guys.

Firstly, I need someone to tell me how to attach a document from my computer LOL.

You won't be able to attach a file. We had that facility but it got used up with pictures and we've had to disable it.

Maybe you could see if anyone here is interested in reading it and then send it to them by email.

Okay, thank you.

Would anyone be willing to read my book for me, it's not that long yet? :think:

Sure! :D Mind you, have lots of books on my list now, so don't expect me to finish with it so early, but I'd love to :)

Personally, I wouldn't advise giving it out to strangers over the internet. Just saying. :?

Ja,it's a little risky to give all your work to people you haven't known for long but we know mC's made of niceness so it'll be fine,Q. ;)

Again - a good reason to email it to people rather than posting it for all to see. That way you know who it has gone out to if there are any problems. :)

I'm not impugning michelanCello. I'm just pointing out something that should be in KingCarrot's best interests.

Yeah, you guys are right - but I would never expect my work to be worth stealing lol.

MC, could you PM me your email address if possible? I will send it over later :)

I know you didn't mean it that way,Q,.I meant that it is dangerous to give it to internet strangers and I personally wouldn't ,but the only person who had offered was mC.So both of us already knew it would be ok,no other strangers to worry about.Not that you don't trust her. :)

You're right to be suspicious. I would totally nick it ;)
