"Everyone!! Great news!!
I was able to get my book published on Amazon.com and I would like everyone's support. It's a YA novel called Being Special and if you want to check it out you can click the title. It's available for $1.99…"
"I completely agree! I'm shocked at the number of people who have involved themselves in the conversation. THIS IS SO EXCITING! I have never been able to discuss books and writing with other people with such depth. I LOVE it"
"But would we want to really want to limit ourselves as writers to what has already been done? A classic is not nearly just the style of writing but the story itself. I personally have read many books at the young age that I am at (don't ask me…"
I honestly never saw this one coming. You just took this to a whole new level. This chapter is amazing and it just sucked me in even deeper. What is the deal with his father? How is it that he could bring himself to do the very thing that…"
Before you freak out: CALM DOWN! LOL
I probable would have commented on your third chapter just as I did one and two. I haven't had a chance to read it yet. Try not to let silence get your mind into high gear over things that you…"
"But that's doesn't seem like what she would be doing if she changed her story from what it is to what you suggest. Your suggestion would take her entire idea and reshape it based on something you would do instead. Don't get me wrong.…"
"Do you have any plan on actually creating a film for it? It seems a little out of place to me, but remember that I am only an opinion. I only feel like it's difficult to really take it seriously if I'm hearing this voice in my head…"
"I like that you did your research on that. I only did not know that because I never had a black berry, though I have used a few owned by friends. If I am the first to ask them think nothing of it. Especially if people use the phase in your area. If…"
"LOL I am so glad that I could help to motivate you. I hope that you finish writing this and it comes out exactly the way you want it to be. I am not so sure about the other lady in the group discussion when she said that she didnt think it was a…"
"Well reading what she has it would seem that they would all end up learning something from the whole thing. I don't think it makes her story a soap opera for having 4 main characters. There are books like that and what they seem to do is help…"
"It sounds interesting. I could use a little more information about it though. I am not one to talk (I can't tell people what a book is about without telling them the book LOL) this is a lot better than what I could do. It slightly reminds me of…"
"I like this guy. I want to believe that he will find what he needs to get some life in his eyes. I cannot help but to want for him to be able to open the windows and breath in the beauty of nature sitting in his own backyard. And the thing I want…"
"This confuses me just a little bit. I can see the effort you put into trying to attract the reader. I, personally would try not to have that because then it goes overboard and sounds a little forced. I like the way it ends though. The beginning…"

The 4th Chapter of 'Silent Voices' is ready to be read. http://www.shewrites.com/profiles/blogs/silent-voices-the-wounded-w... please do provide me with feedback, and any constructive criticism is very welcome. I would love to know what feel one feels towards the character, and also if possible, how he connects and compares with the other characters. Now that all four of them are introduced, I would love to hear what comparisons, compassions and connections you make between the characters themselves and with the reader. Thanks for your help in advance!

"I'm trained as a lawyer, and still for my first novel I signed pretty much what my agent gave me. I asked about something and she said they never change it ... and a year later my best writer-pal got a contract with the same publisher (St.…"
