My First Novel-Take a Look! Can't Post

Hello. Since the introduction thread appears to be out of date, I decided to make my entrance here. My name is Luna, and I'm happy to be here. I'm a twenty year old college student, working my hardest on a novel called 'Destiny's Messenger'. The protagonist is a young male officer named Tobias Halmuron, working as an officer against a city filled with all forms of discrimination-the strongest emphasis will be placed on homophobia, but gender discrimination, discrimination against inter-racial couples, and gender discrimination.

Two notes: First, this is not a place where we post work for comment. There are other boards for that. Second, don't center your lines. It looks weird and amateurish.

You write nice lyrical sentences. Now if you could make them a little more revelant, if would be nice writing. It's too long before you get into the story. I don't know what is going on. I say this as a reader. Although I do try my hand at writing, I am foremost a reader. There are many, many more books in the world that I ever will have time to read; so one like this which does not engage me immediately will not be read. Keep trying. Writing isn't easy and takes years to perfect.

Welcome, Luna. Threads never go out of date. Making a post will bring any conversation back to the active topic list.

As was mentioned, it's the policy of the Speakeasy not to permit posting of orginal work. The link will suggest several other sites that offer workshopping and critique forums.

Enjoy your time on the board...

Regards,

Dana Davis
