Madness Personified

Fellow writers! I need your opinion (which I’m sure you have plenty of!). I am debating on putting my current draft of my novel (aprox 40k) up on My characters are becoming insistent that I finish this novel so I can write the rest of their story. However, I need some feedback about plot and character development and while I’ve had a few friends read what I’ve done so far, I’m not getting the type of feedback I need. My question is, is putting something up on fictionpress worth it? Will people actually read it and give good feedback or will I just be throwing my story to the ether? Or/And should I start posting it here as well?



When creating a character, there’s a lot of questions you ask yourself. Whether it’s an original character or one you’ve been playing for a long time, using a character sheet to get to know your character better can always be a nice idea. With its help, you’ll be able…

A woman’s voice called out, “I love you my little one.” Was that her mother? Only a vague face with indistinct features came to mind.

Just a random stray thought that had happened through my mind as I was playing through ME3 again.
