I have submitted the prologue and first paragraph of Gretchen's chapter to www.webook.com's Page to Fame. If enough people want to see it "elevated", it will pass to the next round where I will submit the first chapter. I'm not saying you should go and join webook so you can rate me... but I wouldn't hate you if you did. So far, two people from the website have read and rated it- one gave it a 3 out of 5- so-so. The other, a 4/5- pretty good. I'm feeling jazzed.
As my friend Michelle just said- fiction is hard. It's more difficult than I recognized to make up a whole life, a whole existance for a family. And to make it worth reading. But I feel like I'm going to do well on this one- I didn't give it a title first.
I'll post more soon. C'mon back, y'all.
