Well . . . In my last post I promised I would put up chapters of a story I’m working on. You could say its a rough draft, meaning the only thing corrected is spelling. But, before I expose myself to you I need to lay down a few rules.
1. No copying and pasting my work and making it your own. Sooooo not right. It’s illegal actually.
2. If you see a mistake, leave a comment. Just be nice about it. Just because I’m not an expert on self editing doesn’t mean I’m an idiots.
3. Consider the time period. If you think a word or phrase is to modern leave a comment. For example, you shouldn’t find the word “yep” in the dialogue of a story set in medieval time.
4. Please don’t suggest anything that will change what is being conveyed in the story or change the feel of the story.
This all being said I hope you, the reader, and I will: Discover, Learn, and Write, a story that will both entertain and inspiring. My next blog post should include the first chapter.
What do you think of these 4 rules? Do they seem reasonable?
