Comments on "Today I "finished" my novel" - Faerye Net 2010-12-31T20:28:16+00:00 Re: everybody 2010-12-31T20:28:16+00:00 2010-12-31T20:28:16+00:00 <p>Oh wow! I have such an embarrassment of volunteers now, I feel quite rich. I promise I’ll make a list, but I cannot promise I will avail myself of everyone’s services, since so many have offered. You may end up being condemned to hoping it gets published — but on the bright side, if it does, it’ll likely be more enjoyable then than the beta draft would have been!</p> Felicity Congrats! 2010-12-27T15:49:07+00:00 2010-12-27T15:49:07+00:00 <p>Wow Felicity! That’s super awesome!</p> <p>Do you still need beta editors? I’d love to help out. David and I good critical thinkers. We’re always helping our friend Ean flesh out his story ideas. It’s so much fun, and very rewarding.</p> <p>(plus I just LOVE your writing, so any chance to get a sneak peak…) ;)</p> Sara Yay! 2010-12-20T17:59:40+00:00 2010-12-20T17:59:40+00:00 <p>Doesn’t it feel great?!</p> <p>Congratulations! Kath and I have signed up for “editpalooza” with Savvy Authors, which might make us super busy. On the other hand, one of our manuscripts may not be ready, so that could give us space to be able to do a critique exchange.</p> <p>Let’s chat about it—or we can talk on the 22nd at the next Writing Day!</p> <p>—simone</p> Simone Proud Papa 2010-12-19T17:38:52+00:00 2010-12-19T17:38:52+00:00 <p>I’m proud of you Dollface — and I’ve no doubt I’ll be even prouder when I read it.</p> Dad Hooray! 2010-12-16T22:04:42+00:00 2010-12-16T22:04:42+00:00 <p>I salute you! I’d be a terrible reader for you, but brava to Jan with the green pen. Classy. Smacks of formal editing training or experience, that green pen bit.
