That's not to say she shouldn't continue to write for fun and her own entertainment, but publishing is an entire different matter.
Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.
I'm bumping this up because I just catched up with chapter 64... I was kind of expecting that (it would have been tooooooo easy to succeed straight away) but now I'm really looking forward to see what happens next! waiting for the next chapt!
Nooooo, don't end it! I love having something figure skating related to read besides blogs/forums, and I've blown through the figure skating section at the library.
I lost this thread but finally found it again! Your writing is getting better and better. I'm loving the story! I can't wait to see how it ends.
Thanks so much, GM! The feedback I've received on here and on the FanStory site has taught me so much. Once I post the last chapter, I'm going to go back and edit many of the early chapters to apply what I've learned. Writing the last chapter has been a struggle because in my mind the story continues after the point where I need to end it (and I've continued to put it on paper, too). So, I have to find a nice way to wrap it all up without leaving too much hanging.
I am really enjoying your book - If you are ending it soon will you be writing another one? Hope so!
Gosh, I wrote (or typed) my book before user - friendly computers or the internet existed to any degree.
I'll see if I can dig it up The Great Wall of China for you at some point.
The plot, looking back, was Faustian, to say the least, and nothing clean - cut like TanithAndBenFan's story.
Mine was about an average skater who believes she has made a pact with the devil to win Olympic gold. The catch (and isn't there always one) is that victory comes with a hefty price.
I am dying to know what happens now, and I really hope that you decide to make a Book 2! Please? LOL
I've posted the last chapter. Would love to hear thoughts from those of you who are still reading - was it a satisfactory ending?
