I have come across quite a few promising fiction writers here on HubPages, lately - including many people I didn't know before. Please introduce yourselves, whether new or not. You could also mention what you are currently working on, and whether you are seeking feedback from other writers, etc.
I have only written some short and flash fiction. I love writing genre stuff, especially science-fiction. I have one pretty good weird western story on line that was inspired by one of my favorite writers, in my youth, Robert D. Howard. My voice, his genre.
Thank you! I still have something to learn about literary genres, which are so influential in the world of publishing. Sci-fi and Western fiction sound really interesting; I do know a few people who write in those genres. Look forward to reading some of your work.
Weird Western is a sub-genre of dark fantasy/supernatural and westerns. It was a much more common form during the days of pulp fiction.
Do you do anything in the order of: Cowboys vs Aliens? I loved the movie. Or do you stick with a specific genre? Have you thought about mixing and matching? Love story and comedy. Or sci-fi and humor: like Restaurant at the end of the Universe?
This discussion thread has been moved to http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/118695 so that new commenters can network with active HP profiles. Many who have posted to this forum discussion - including Website Examiner - are no longer on HP. The new thread will be up to date with active profiles. TY
I have three books I am working on, one linked to my online game, musical CD and children's book. The other two are different genres, but what I post on Hubpages isn't from my novels, most are short stories, and one mini novelette I have started.
I enjoy people reading my work and curious how they react and if they enjoy the read.
I have been on Hubpages for two years now. Most of my writing here is non-fiction, something that I have enjoyed doing in the last few years. I have however written a lot of fiction in the past and from time to time I am so drawn to writing more even if I resist it. I came to the forums with the intention of posting a thread to fellow writers (which I will do shortly), but then came across your post. Right now I am reviewing a fiction manuscript I did almost 15 years ago so I can enter a writing contest. I was refreshed by its content when I found it two nights ago and I thought the perspective is still fresh and something that may still benefit many.
I am still trying to climb the ropes in regards to fiction. Let's see when I reach a plateau where I am confident enough to start venturing out on my own. Cheers!
Hello Ruchira, how good of you to post here! In my view, the most important part of writing fiction is that it can be so stimulating and enjoyable. Sharing and getting published are secondary, the way I feel about it. But when you are ready to share, I'm sure you'll do just fine - and maybe even better than that!
Hi I'm from Sydney Australia and have been on Hubpages for over a year now. I've just started writing over the last year or so after giving up my day job as a school Counsellor and have written a YA novel that has just gone through it's final edit and will go through a manuscript assessment mid February. Have also written short stories one of which is up on Hubpages - High School Blues. Thanks for your interest.
Hello Carter, it is very interesting to hear about your project and plans for your novel. Manuscript assessments are a pretty big thing in Australia, and I have the good fortune to be in touch with one of your manuscript consultants. I also have worked with a literary consultant in Britain; both very easy-going and nice people. Even at such an advanced stage, your manuscript can probably benefit from being assessed by a professional, and you as an author will gain valuable new insights. Good luck!
I have been writing some fiction on hubpages. Primarily western short short stories. Primarily two series. the first I call the carbons creek tales and the others are the Galvanized Yankee.
I just joined Hubpages less than a week ago, and I am already hooked on reading all the contributions!
I love to write (but I am not published). My portfolio includes a science-fiction novelette, a multitude of essays, and a few poems. Most of my current efforts are dedicated to writing an opera libretto; I am collaborating with a fellow composer on the project.
I'm currently working on a science fiction article. It's exciting to read comments by writers about writing fiction. They're so genuine.
My name's Afsaneh, 18 years old, female, has long hair and a strange sense of humour (or so i've been told)
I've been working on a novel for the past three months, since school's been out and in the middle when i feel a little annoyed with myself, i write poetry, prose, my dreams (literal dreams, mind you) and have SO many half finished stories i should really publish here on HP.
All critique is appreciated and i hope to see all of your work too!
I am an unpublished author having self published my first trilogy as a self education in writing. Its true you never really know what your writing looks like until you see it in print.
I have written Four novels since and am currently working on a trilogy of low fantasy/sci fi novels I believe may be deemed as Commercially viable, (If there is any true definition of this term), and am trying to publish another high fantasy novel. I am placing some chapters of a currently lost book which my old laptop ate up on me on my hubs. I was hoping for some feedback on the Cup of Insinuation chapters for inspiration to write it over again.
You are so modest, yet also so ambitious. I am sure that you have produced some interesting work, and I hope to learn more about your projects.
Seriously, do not give up your day job. You do not have the writing skills to write a novel. Honestly, stop now.
Seanorjohn, what's the problem here? I hope you are feeling all right.
The problem is, that I am an amazing writer and publishers should be fighting for
my signature. That is why I do not write too many hubs. I will be published by the real publishers.#####
Wow! I say follow your dreams and don't let and anyone tell you otherwise. Look at all those people who turned down now very famous and rich authors when they submitted their stories. You never know what the bigger plan is for you.
I agree. I was talking rubbish, Go for it. Sorry.
Cool idea! I call myself a fiction writer on good days. I only have two short stories posted on HP so far, but am considering posting chapters of my novel for feedback.
I'm new. As in just signed up and am navigating still. I write young adult fiction. Just finished the rewrite of my first novel "The Chosen" and am about to send it off to the first on a growing list of agents. I have also been working on the second installment to the series and it's going great!
My name is Tamara Wilhite. I am a science fiction and horror author, in addition to working as a technical writer. I've published several short stories as Hubs, and have several books on Amazon.com.
I write mostly personal narrative, but I do write fiction and lots of poetry. I have a published book of personal narrative and an unpublished novel. I love writing fiction, but most of my writing right now tends to be essay. Not sure why, but most of it is related to my small business.
I have three short stories here on Hub Pages. These were written some time ago when I was studying Creative Writing. Feedback is always appreciated. I am longing to do more fiction writing, but my back ground is in news, and I seem to be stuck there. I worry about ethics (having worked recently in a job where I was privy to personal and confidential information) and, coming from a small town, I worry about privacy. Too much worrying, not enough writing.
I write fun fiction on Hubpages but Google bodyswerves it. So I think I'll stay to factual Hubs from now on and try my fiction elsewhere.
I've written and self-published a romance novel called To Get Me To You. It's about a woman who has been abused and takes the first opportunity to escape her home to make a new life for herself far away from everything she's ever known. She keeps the truth about her past a secret, but the longer she lives in this place that is like a fairy-tale she feels the strong desire to confide in someone. That someone is the one person who helps her see the importance of friends and love: two things she tried to avoid.
Hi, I'm new here and just getting the hang of this site. I written two stories but they are more fanfiction than fiction. I always wanted to wrtite my own stuff and now I'm ready to give it a go and be original. Just need to find the inspiration.
I just refound hubpages recently and I've been posting my NaNoWriMo story on here. It's called "A Rock And A Hard Place." I would love any input that anyone would like to give.
My name is William, and I'm new to Hubpages. I am starting to enjoy writing science fiction and fantasy stories. I am starting a science fantasy short story collection called Circles Seven, and I would very much appreciate any feedback on my work I can get. I need feedback to improve.
I am Tom Bridgeland. I just put a new fantasy novel up on Amazon.
I've only recently started posting stuff here on HubPages. So far, I have only posted poems, but I am planning to add a few fiction works eventually. I am thinking of posting my first short story right around New Year's.
The message posted under each comment in this forum says "the post you are replying to is over to 22 months old. If you have any new information to be added to this conversation, please consider starting a new forum discussion instead. So I did. Since many former commenters and the original poster Website Examiner are no longer on HP, I started a new thread here - please join us http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/118695#post2507795
I am a fiction writer. I love writing short stories.
I welcome all feedback regarding my short stories!
Me, me, me! Oh wait you already know me. If I can get my first non-fiction book done ... I already know what I'm writing my second book on. Just give me five years... lol
Hello! I've recently completed a 60,000 word Middle Grade fantasy novel, Molly Cheddar's Gauntlet, and am biding my time as I try to get published by a children's magazine such as Highlights. To gain more experience I am also publishing hubs, just recipes for now.
Hello. Completing a novel is a major achievement. Sounds like a good approach to get into a magazine on the path to getting the novel published.
Vespa, what ever happened with this? What did you do with your book?
I have been on Hubpages for six months and am currently working on Part 8 of a multi-part series called...The Wizard of Reno. These past six months mark my first exploration into fiction and I must say, I like it! Thanks for setting up a forum where I can ramble.
I write fiction but not here on HP. My platform is with screenplays and I posted a few months ago about me getting signed by an agent that is now shopping my last romantic comedy and gave me a go on a psychological thriller that I pitched last month.
The reason I don't publish my fiction online is because of fear of it getting stolen. It's one thing to have a product or info hub stolen but to have your very own characters stolen would be like having your children kidnapped... well sort of
I plan to venture in that direction very soon. I hope you might consider me worthy, although I am indeed new.
My new novel is out, but you already know. I'd say what and where, but it would just be too spammy at this point. lol. But I like your encouraging all of us fiction people to find each other and find comfort in knowing that HP is a place where it's not ONLY about writing stuff to appease search algorithms and lure in people with a credit card.
I have been a member here for four months. Before that, I just read everything for three months. I have only posted one fiction piece and was a nervous wreck over it. It was the first fiction piece that I have ever written. I am working on another, to be 5 or 6 different hubs worth but have not published any of them yet. I am still polishing and changing things daily.
I am working on many projects. Most of my fiction writing is confidential (I write for educational publishing companies) so I tend to do more non-fiction pieces here on Hub Pages, but I have a smattering of different genres represented here so far. My fiction pieces on HP are mostly poems and allegories. I have a few fiction things that I'm playing around with but have not posted yet. One is a children's book--origin tale meets Curious George. Another is a fantasy story for adolescents. I want to do a devotional that has scenarios that help people feel like they become a part of the story and are led into spiritual encounter. These are just a few things. I get so many ideas going at once, it seems the pieces that are commissioned are the ones that get my most attention because they actually have a deadline. :-)
I have a few that I'm keeping to myself and a chapter up of something I would like feedback on. It's still a little pet project and I don't know whether to continue it or not. It's called "Vehemence of the Sun." I'm a chapter or two further in it but would like some feedback before I post them or continue writing too much further, so that I can make it better as I go. Why practice bad habits? Anyways, it's a sci-fi set after a nuclear apocalypse. It's still just introducing the characters and general direction though.
If got one of those myself. It's far from complete, but I have the basic concept already. I have published some of it on HP, but it didn't go over too well I guess. I didn't get too many hits on it. That's a writers life I guess, try, try, and then try again.
My interest has always been in non-fiction, but I do write flash fiction and poetry.
For the book writers: Good luck with your marathon-like endeavor!
I've been posting a series of personal narratives that I wrote 12-13 years ago, looking at them with a fresh eye and revising them, with the intent of choosing the best and possibly offering them to someone for publication. They comprised some of my best work to date.
Thanks for asking - what a generous forum post!
I'm a fairly new fiction writer; I published a novella and collection of short stories in 2011. I am currently working on a comedy novel, "The Butler Lake Wormhole."
I wrote non-fiction for years (some published); mostly about the stock market. I am also autistic.
HubPages has been a wonderful resource; even the most simple feedback is helpful! All the wonderful comments I have received are more than heartening. Connecting with my readers has brought me more satisfaction than I could have imagined.
I am holding my first book readings in February in Haileybury and Kirkland Lake, Ontario. We are expecting between thirty and sixty people at each: a large audience!
Just finished a screenplay, took years. But fun. Waiting for feedback. Bin? Probably. Though had to write it. Now working on another. Teenage adventure.
Thanks for all of the replies. I am reading with strong interest. Am impressed with all the productivity and creative energy flowing here! Each has their own voice, their own approach, it is fascinating.
Glad to meet you. I've been here about eight months. My profile has more detail, but I have exerps from two of my novels here on HP and they are available on Amazon. I write women's fiction, but have had some feedback from men who've enjoyed a look into the female psyche. Working on a non-fiction about living in Saudi Arabia and have much poetry on my site. Welcome!
Hi there, I am JSChams and I have a story I am working on involving two young people in Scotland and the Fae. Please read and tell me what you think. The first part you should read is called The Past.
It then goes to Chapter One-Little Bird. They are numbered and in my profile.
I'm currently involved in a collaborative fiction project with some other hubbers. It's been a lot of fun and a total departure for me.
I've been planning on writing a novel, but recently have changed my mind and decided to write a memoir. THEN, I changed my mind again and decided to write a novel based on my life - which will be a great deal more fun, I think, especially since I can take quite a few more liberties and avoid offending anyone with whom I've been involved.
I have five short stories on here in this account. I posted one of them in my first few weeks here and it was selected for the Hubbernugget list for newbies, did n't win but it helped to give me the confidence to continue writing and sharing my fiction writing.
I now have a web page for my stories and am working on building up the traffic to that. If I ever write a book it will be short stories as I enjoy the challenge of writing and telling a story in a concise way.
Hi, 2eusday. I like your reason for switching back to fiction. I wrote a novel for the same reason--you can't just go telling other people's stories that are their own to tell.
Thank you for the replies! I hope that this thread will continue, so that those of us who are interested can learn about the fiction projects, books, and authors that are evolving around this site. That was my primary reason for starting the thread. We had something similar in the past, but that was quite awhile ago. I am reading all of the replies with more interest than I am able to express.
All writers should at least try their hand at fiction occasionally. It's a pleasant break from sales or other informative type writing, if nothing else.
I'm always working on some fiction project or another as all work and no play makes Randy a.......!
I hope that you aren't referring indirectly to OUR PARTY Mate!
There is Nothing Fictional about the Taxis we have ordered! Is There????
It Is VERY Important to Plan A Factually Perfect Escape.. Oops.. I mean getaway!
I would never use fiction to describe THE PARTY, PD! Some things are still sacred to me, believe it or not!
I have posted a few of my short stories here. The latest is my Big Nam series in honor of my dad. (He is also the inspiration behind my Redneck hubs.) I have been nagging on my mother (mljdgulley354) to post a few of her short stories too. In the past, I have dabbled with writing murder mysteries and a ghost story. Eventually I would like to publish them.
I have written two adult novels, but they never got published.
Hi WE, my first fantasy novel for older kids is currently being polished, edited and fretted over and will be ready to start sending out to some literary agents in the next few weeks. The second is already written and just needs editing, so need to get on with the third!
I had already sold several fictional mystery stories before joining HP with requests for more of the same from the publisher. However, I found I didn't like writing the types of plots they required so I haven't continued with the offer. I try not to write what I do not enjoy.
If you like a fast police crime mystery.
Much thanks to those who have already purchased these ebooks.
Creekwood and Creekwood2 available here:
We've already talked, but I think I'll post anyway. I'm Shanna, I'm eighteen and I've been writing fiction stories since I was a kid. I'm working on two different stories right now-- both teen fiction, but in between school and work and social obligations, it's slow going.
I find that my biggest problem is planning ahead and knowing where the story is going and feeling that it's too cliche or overdone for me to even try it.
I am grateful for all the interesting responses. I had been thinking for awhile about posting this thread, and now I'm glad that I did. Any published works, I will be happy to include them in my online directory, which already has nearly 20 authors. Any unpublished works I will be happy to learn more about.
Thank you, W.E.
You are welcome, Couturepopcafe. They say "don't judge a book by its cover," but in your case I think I'll do just that. A great cover and probably a great set of books.
Wow, coming from you, that's a nice compliment. I consider yours to be a good critical eye in terms of writing and what I've seen from you.
Livewithrichard: I fully understand your concerns. I would not recommend publishing one's most important work online, either, except as part of a deliberate promotion of published books and eBooks. It is great to hear that you are going places with your literary works. Good luck!
Homesteadbound: Well, of course! The doors are always open. You can get started on some noteworthy fiction in no time.
Uncorrectedvision: Duly noted, and thank you! I am not a person of the mainstream, and always enjoy things of a more esoteric nature.
Shadesbreath: Indeed! I can say that I was pleased that you decided to go that route. Your novel is available via my online directory, which in turn is available via my profile page. I hope things are working out for you.
Becky Katz: It sounds very exciting, both for you and the readers. Small steps is a good approach. Get some feedback, adjust, and move forward. I look forward to learning more.
Seek-n-Find: It sounds a bit mysterious, and very intriguing. I am glad that you have found good uses for HubPages, as a supplement to your professional writings.
B. A. Williams: You write really well, I think. I am still learning about your works and writing style, but I like everything I've seen so far. Thanks.
Timmathisen: Flash gives a lot of possibilities for those who know to make a point. I consider myself a book writer, primarily, but enjoy shorter formats as well. Thanks for supporting the community.
Capricornrising: So, the time has come to revisit some of your previous works. It may take some time to review and polish so much material, but I hope that it pays off for you. You are most welcome to the thread.
Xenonlit: Thanks, I look forward to learning more. I do like the title.
ScottHough: Novellas and short story collections are attractive formats for many writers. I really enjoy working with novella length manuscripts, which can be done in between other things. Good luck with your novel.
Cavallo: Yes, screenplay. Finding discerning readers for that isn't so easy, I guess, it is a very specialized set of requirements. I hope someone in the HubPages community can help you. There are other screenplay writers around.
Kathleen Cochran: Glad to meet you, too! I will be looking at your work, including your published novels, so as to include them in my directory. I look forward to learning more about your authorship in general.
JSChams: Duly noted, thank you. It may take a little while for me to get to your stories, but I'll get there for sure.
Motown2Chitown: Yes, I vaguely remember something about the collaboration, which seems solid. Changing your mind is fine, as long as it points you in the right direction.
2uesday: Thank you for the information, that is very good to know!
Randy Godwin: I am interested to learn about your work, which I have heard about in passing from time to time. I know you to be a serious fiction writer. Glad to exchange views and comments about editing and such.
Pearldiver: Thanks for contributing your thoughts. Your posts are always original and cutting-edge.
Tlpoague: Thanks for letting me know. I will have to learn more about your work. It is very good if you can gradually inspire your mother to bring her works out for public viewing as well.
Dave Mathews: Interesting. Let's just say that they "never got published, so far."
Donnaisabella: This could be an important period for you, as far as deciding what to do with your work. I wish you luck with it, and thanks for sharing.
Couturepopcafe: Somehow it makes me feel relaxed to know that the works have already been published. Then one can enjoy.
Shanna: We have barely been introduced. I appreciate your openness about your plans. It is natural to be in doubt about some things, and critique can be helpful to answer questions. It is my preference to critique works that have been completed, like a short story, so as to give the writer the time to get some traction.
I have just completed a book with the title: "Eyes Wide Shut: An Enigma." with a website using the book as the URL.
I initially used Hubpages to get reader's input on my rough drafts... I encourage others to do so.
I have learned much. Most important: I have learned what I do not know!
I have a draft of another book, "Yes Mom, I Do 'Remember" with the first seven chapters in Hubpages...
I've always been fascinated with writing books so when i read this i was pretty happy to see someone else was interested in fiction writers. I'm continuously having book ideas so its not a surprise that I'm writing quite a few things at once. There's another site called Wattpad that i have a few of my works, although there are two specific ones I'm working on currently called The Creed and Because It Was Always You (also come to be known as BIWAY). I commonly write Romance/Supernatural Fiction but i tried my hand at realistic fiction with BIWAY. I'm currently working on getting one of my books published.
Ifroseswereblue, you are clearly very dynamical. It is a good idea to try different genres. Welcome to HubPages; I hope you will find friends and readers here.
I have added a link to this forum in my latest hub luv #13.
I have really enjoyed reading the many responses to this topic. Wow! We have a lot of projects here.
I write short stories and have written a novel, presently at work on a novella. I started with non fiction, Sweet Potato Suppers, a memoir of my years living in a hippie village called The Farm. At the end of that book my oldest child was five. My fiction book Gideon's River is a sequel to Sweet Potato Suppers. I just couldn't keep writing about my growing children. So I took the themes of family relationships and the roots of personal confidence that mattered to me and created characters and a story to go with them. Both books were fun and are getting lots of responses.
I'm enjoying this thread. Isn't "Tell me a story" 'bout the oldest request in the world?
I wrote earlier that I have only published one fiction piece. Mostly, I write about my family and the crazy, funny things that they have done. Light humor. I like to write pieces that bring back memories of your own children. They are feel-good pieces. I would love feedback on them, but I am not sure whether I am ready for an honest, brutal critique.
All right! The old one appears to have dried up, but here we are... This sure filled up fast! (I'm not surprised, there is a lot of talent here) I'm in pre release of the sequel to my debut novel, previews of both available right here! Come by and check 'em out.... Well, off to work on part 3!
This thread is on fire! I've really enjoyed reading your introductions and look forward to following your work. I'm overwhelmed by all the talent to be found on HP. I have each and every one of you bookmarked. : ) Yes, writing a novel IS a marathon, which makes the end result that much more satisfying.
I am currently pposting "First Speaker, Second Voice" on Hub Pages. I intend to do another when it is done (8 more chapters) I am always seeking feedback, and willing to listen. I get off on knowing someone is reading my work.
Hello all, I've started writing short stories on HP and it is highly addictive! I still write other hubs but I'm really enjoying the fictional stuff. I have a lot to learn but I'm enjoying learning it.
Triciajean, you definitely have stories to tell, and the knowledge to go with it. Glad that you are enjoying the thread, and thanks for giving your insights.
Becky Katz, it is good to be aware of the difference between informal feedback and critique. At the right time, a critique can help a great deal, but first you should feel confident that you have given it your best shot. Critiquing “works in progress” often doesn't work out so well.
Shape Shifter, yes, I recall that excellent thread that you started, and it went on for quite awhile. Glad to have you participate here.
Vespa Woolf, the first novel is the hardest in some ways. On the other hand, the drive is so strong. Having done it once, you know you can do it again, which may help but also give some complacency.
Dahoglund, I have seen some of your serial posts: Lots of them, and well-received apparently. Western fiction is a genre that continues to fascinate writers and readers, including some new writers.
Britanytodd, that was part of the idea: Giving people an easy point of reference. Thanks for participating.
Mark Pitts, you are posting a lot of fiction, then. I will take a look, and hope you gain many readers.
Weestro, sounds perfect, just the kind of thing we enjoy hearing. Fiction can be addictive, many can attest to that. Good luck!
I have published a 400 page Law book (Packaging and Labelling Law)and I am just finishing the second edition.
I have written 20,000 words so far of a "weepy" novel for which I will be looking for a commercial publisher.
What a wonderful post! Thank you for starting it! I have found so many interesting writers to check out. I recently pulled out my first novel and started editing. It's a psychological thriller without a title. ( I have tried several and none seem to fit!)
As a few here know, I am working on a paranormal investigator piece right now - and have stalled out. Sorry to those that have asked about it. We go where the creative river takes us! I have three other novel ideas started. I get very excited about an idea and have to at least get it started. My plans are to prep my thriller and paranormal pieces first. Then, I will return to the other three ideas. Of those three, one is a fantasy and two are historical thrillers.
Thanks for this post! Great to see other fiction writers - who I'll be following after I post this! Can't wait to read your stuff. I am following or am familiar with a few of you already and I agree there is a lot of strong writing on HubPages. I just published my novel 'Lockyer Own Storage', a few chapters of which are on HubPages. My local bookstore (small chain) called Books Inc. picked the book up and has invited me to read and sign in late March! I'm psyched as you can imagine. I plan on publishing the book chapter by chapter on HubPages to share with this community and to provide teasers to those who find it. If they want to read the full 336 on their tablet or laptop I hope they go for it, though I'd rather they purchase and save their eyes! Still, I'd love for YOU ALL to go to my profile and read my fiction - critique it, comment, tell me what you think - please! Let's build the community, do virtual readings, book clubs, whatever. Let's have fun!
I have two completed and two WIP novels for you to read here on hubpages for free, aren't I nice
1. Terror's Child - For those that enjoy a a good contemporary Christian drama with a dash of action and romance.
2. Truth to Tell - A deceptively honest tale of a man faced with a horrible dilemma; to confess his most secret sin or lose the life of a loved one.
3. The Azure Ancient - for lovers of fantasy adventure. A tale of an Elfin empire at the crossroads of annihilation.
4.The Prodigal King - An unappreciated birthright cannot always be escaped, and challenges confront he that tries.
I hope this is still active!, if not i am talking to myself lol
I am currently writing a good old fashioned zombie story. This however is set in the UK and Europe, and doesn't follow normal ideas about our hungry friends.
What Went Wrong (link on my profile
Charles James: Very interesting. I found the link via your profile page, and will get your book listed in my directory. Thanks.
LABrashear: You are very welcome! I look forward to learning more about how the editing and other work on completion of your novel is going. Please keep me posted.
Peter Allison: Congratulations on your novel! I will get it listed in my directory. I also think it is good that you welcome feedback and critique from other writers.
AEvans: Sounds great. I hope to learn more.
Parrster: I see. I will check up on your work, thanks.
Sarah Bolluyt: Sounds great about a novelette, and there are other works to look into. I shall do that, thanks.
Dadibobs, I appreciate the comment. I will check out your work, and what may have gone wrong (thus far).
I came to hubpages tow years ago and all I wanted to do was publish my comic strip The Cosmos Frame by Frame. The only problem was that I had to publish an article along with it, so I took some jokes and stuck it with the comic strip. I wasn't allowed to re-publish jokes that already existed on the web. I wrote some crap and then I re-wrote that crap into a little better crap. I decided to get serious on writing and I wrote The Agency and that was my first serious piece of work for for fiction writing. At this moment, I've almost completed my first novel. And I'm glad to have met so many talented writers here on hubpages.
I am, and have been for several months, writing a psychological thriller. I'm still developing my characters and they are taking me to some very dark places. I had no idea that my imagination could be so grim.
My specialty is mystery and young detective fiction.

Hi, everyone. Thank you in advance for reading; this is a little long-winded.When I was a kid, I loved writing books. I'd sit at the computer for hours, typing. I knew I was going to be a writer one day. Even my elementary school teacher said I had talent. When I was 22 I got a publishing contract...
