Re: Writers Central

I understand what you mean about stealing. I find it very difficult to write about someone else's characters. How can I be sure of what they would do when I did not create them? This is one of the reasons I have not tried to write Twilight fanfiction, and why I don't read it either. I can't believe...

Re: Writers Central

Subject: Writers Central I have had some people who weren't friends look at it (they are now my good friends, and my book's greatest advocates!), however, they certainly aren't writers. If you can put me in touch with someone that would be good, although I want to do a lot of cutting myself before ...

Re: Writers Central

What stops this reader from going and taking your idea and rewriting it? I mean, until it's actually published it can't be copyrighted. Actually as soon as you have the rough draft completed you can copyright it. It costs about 35 dollars per manuscript. As long as you don't radically change your b...

Re: Writers Central

You're lucky to have an agent, alphanubilus. Getting one is not an easy thing! All the best with your novel! Yes, I'll have to try elsewhere if this effort doesn't come good. The trouble is, there's so much of this romantic/fantasy stuff in the market at the moment. Mine probably isn't unique enoug...

Re: Writers Central

I'm glad you've found a compromise Tornado, but in the end, it is YOUR story. I know it might be hard, but if you have strong opinions about how your story should be, you might need to seek out another publisher, of whom will be more open. However, if you can get the compromise to work, then go for...

Re: Writers Central

The overall story arc in the book is resolved, and I don't just leave my lovers with no hope at all. The girl is determined that she will have him, and the book ends with her expressing this. The boy is a little less certain that it can be achieved, but is willing to let her try. It's difficult to ...

Re: Writers Central

I'm really sorry to double post, but I was wanting to ask the opinion of other readers/writers on this site. I recently received a reader's report from the publisher who I hoped would publish my novel. It is the first in a romantic trilogy (with fantasy themes). The reader has said categorically th...

Re: Writers Central

As a writer, I love to hear people talk about my projects and tell me how much they loved my story. That is every writer's wish in reality. Is it daunting to think that your work could be compared to the likes of Harry Potter and Twilight... yeah, and while you might not garner the "craziness" that...

Re: Writers Central

Wow... novel adaptation of my script, "The Wolf Prince" has now reached its 263rd page. Thus far it stands at 81,000 words, but I'm FINALLY nearing the end, so I'd say it will eventually hit around 350 pages before I start editing. When you consider that I started this beast in the middle of March....
