Writing a Novel

I started writing a novel.  I have you, my friends, to thank for it.  You’ve given me such nice feedback on my blogs about sky lanterns and building rockets, I’m encouraged to do more writing.

After thinking about it, I decided to try my hand at humorous fantasy, the kind written by Terry Pratchett, Robert Aspirin, and others.  My story is about a young god struggling to create his first universe while coping with the antics of his co-workers and an overbearing boss who is out to fire him.

I have about 50 pages written so far, and I like the way it’s turning out.  Marge is, of course, my greatest fan, and she tells me she likes it too.  🙂

I bought some books on fiction writing.  I also found several writers groups in Muskegon.  I’ve only attended one meeting so far, but I met some very interesting people.

The reason for this post is to see if you would like to help me with my writing.  I want to find 2-3 people who are interested in reading my stuff and giving me some feedback.  Do you like the story?  Do you like the characters?  What would you like to see more of?  What would you like to see less of?  That type of stuff.

If anyone is interested, please either reply below with a comment or send me an email.

  1. I’d love to read your stuff. I am starting my 3rd novel now — my second has been placed on the back burner while I work out some character issues. I sent the first page and 1/2 of the 3rd (working title, The Vacuum Cleaner) to my sister and she did a line by line critique. Not nice at all. I like general comments better — what do you think of the characters? Does it grab your interest? stuff like that. Anyway, I would be happy to read yours since Marge is reading mine!

    1. Excellent! Thank you, Linda. Maybe we can talk about some writing stuff when you come to visit. This will be fun!

  2. I had a great time when you were here. Thank you so much for your feedback on my novel. If you move out here, we are going to have a lot of fun with the Noveleers writing group.

    And good luck on your novel. It sounds terrific!

Tell me what you think!
