Hi there,

I'm in the same boat as you and it's so daunting. I've just finished the third chapter of my book, The Immortal Way, and starting to work on my book propsal. Would like to do a swap? I'll read yours and you read mine? Let me know. My email address is lysianassa@hotmail.co.uk

Hi,
I'll read it. ClaireHolcomb@Comcast.net. And send me notify note at Tinklingbells@hotmail.com.
The Tinkling bells won't hold that much copy as I have so much coming in.
But I'll read.

God, I remember my writing at l9. It was so awfulllllllllllllll with a few exceptions. Worst was a woman waiting to be but to death for murder, best about an old couple in Ireland watching the sea.

One, thing. Over the years as writer, teacher, etc. I have watched writers I thought, with the arrogance ofyouth or of \jiust more experience, move to levels I never thought they could reach.
So, even if your piece is not that great, big deal.
People who want to write and will work at, will improve and publish. I blieve that with my whole heart cause have seen it happen. But it's easy to say and hard to do.
But, you do move into a runner's high where you need your daily "FIX" of writing. So thank God I haven't had block for ages because I need to write as well as want to.

I am a new self published writer.  I have completed my second book and it is in its editing phase.  If you wouldn't mind viewming my book and pages from my new book at http://www.iamdark.com/writerspage.html I would appreciate it. Also give me your opinion on the book that is published and the new book to be released.  I wouldn't mind view your work as well.
