08:21 pm - on taking a wild boyish fling at writing...
So, I've been writing again lately, or at least trying to. I started a new story a week or two ago. A couple people have given me a bit of feedback, but its always nice to have more. I had thought about just posting what I have to lx_arena (which we should really start using more) but then I figured maybe I'd check here to see if any of the non-LXers would be interested, I'm looking for anyone who is interested in reading and giving me an opinion. Its always nice to have opinions from other writers, but that's not necessarilly necessesary.

The story is currently at 9 pages, and I'm going to try to write at least another 3 or so tonight. I'm not quite sure yet whether the final story will actually be a novel or a short story. Ask me in another 10 to 200 pages. (oh, for those who are wondering, this is completely unrelated to the Jack's Place novel that I have been working on for the better part of the last 157 years.)

So, who's interested?

I'm gonna go ahead and say, yes, I'd love to read it. I have gotten through about half of Jack's Place, with comments. I like short(er) stories.

I'm always surprised when people want to share something they've just started. That's the kind of writing I usually don't want any comments on.

how terribly exciting. I look forward to seeing what you do and don't like about Jack's Place. It's been a big struggle over several years to write that story, so every now and again, I just have to get away from it. I guess what I'm doing now is trying to get away from it, while still being productive on something else.

In some respects I guess I understand not wanting to show something til its finished, but on the other hand, if I show something along the way, then if someone has really good input or finds a huge glaring mistake, its a lot easier to fix than it would be if I'd built 200 pages on top of it. And if everyone says "this fucking sucks" then I may consider not wasting as much time on it. And of course, its not like I can't just ignore input that I don't find helpful.

So yeah, I really do appreciate anything that you have to say about either story.

Well, I've got far too much to do already, so I'd love a distraction from all of that crap. :) Count me in.

Yes! I am a distraction! What more can a writer hope for!
