Re: Twilight Fanfiction Discussion Thread 2

Well, you upload the different chapters at doc manager, then upload the first chapter at new story, then go to manage stories and add the other chapters. Thanks Tornado I've now managed to finish the first Chapter and prologue and added them here. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8477850/1/The-Voogden-C...

Re: Writers Central

This thread has been way too quiet, so just picture me tip-toeing up to the nearest hornet's nest and kicking it. Angst Goddess has popped her head out from where-ever she's been and put in her two cents on the recent rash of popular fanfictions turned bestsellers. Feel free to read it & talk among...

Quick Reply: Marielle, all I have to say to you is: "I gotta go, Julia. We got cows." :lol: And Lynne, on cover art, be careful. Especially about using stock photos. I'll link you to an article on it, but I've heard of at least 2 books released in the last year or so that had another book come out w...

Re: Twilight Fanfiction Discussion Thread 2

For anyone who has read Only Human by Amethyst Jackson, which was one of the first fanfic's I've read and is in my top ten favorites, she has been updating Anatomy of a Human (EPOV). It's a must read for anyone who hasn't read it. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5879490/1/Anatomy_of_a_Human http://www....

Quick Reply: Brenda , I guess I should have put a disclaimer next to that blog article: I am neither supporting or condemning those that profit from derivative fiction. I just thought it was an interesting article, humorous, and timely. Because, let's face it, the amount of derivative fiction both i...

Re: Writers Central

On the topic of my book, it is finished. 82,000+ words. I've written my first query draft and getting feedback on it while also doing the first round of edits on the manuscript. I hope within the next month or so I'll be sending my letter out to agents! Squeal!! I have to say, fanfiction was probab...

Quick Reply: Austen... where do you live?? I spent yesterday morning pulling out all the canned food from our emergency/hurricane evacuation bins and rotating in newer food. I also made a run to Walmart for bottled water & batteries, lol. You know, J.I.C. Isaac pulls a Charley or something. I'm in C...

Re: Rob's Halfway House #11

Ginnie – It must be fun to edit for pay, is it? I’d love to know more about your job. I hope we are all a lot more active here on the Lex once we get back to our fall routines. I know you’ve been swamped with family stuff. Now that I know your kids are back in school, I can start bugging you about ...

Re: Rob's Halfway House #11

I think the plot in book three is good, but I've been wrong before (I had to do MAJOR rewrites of book one!). I think I'm better than I was then, though, but it's still a little worrying. Hi Lynne, I've decided no one is ever ready for the editing process. And it seems like everyone has to do major...

Re: Twilight Fanfiction Discussion Thread 2

Sorry for the double post, but this is a complete topic switch.

Great blog article on fanfiction vs. published fiction, something I know we've discussed here in the past. :)
