QUOTE OF THE DAY:
"Better to write for yourself and have no public, than write for the public and have no self" Cyril Connolly
Well now a second post within a day - amazing how 'real life' work motivates one to do other things.
anyhoo. The important question i'm asking myself today is 'am i Krazy?'
On a normal day i'm crazy with a small 'c' but i think today (with hindsight) i'm alot of Krazy with a big K and a dash of desperate.
Why? you ask. Well, I am the genius writer, of approx 500 words of a manuscript, who decided to email the EVIL EDITOR with the first 150-200 words of chapter 1 (chapter 1 which is still 500 words) so that it can be put up as a 'new beginning' - this means Ladies and Gents that strangers look at my 150-200 words (which are looking crapper the more i see them) and make up the next 200 words from it - creating a 'new beginning' and of course when its posted on EVIL EDITOR BLOG people can comment on the whole affair.
So i've explained the Krazypart, but what about the desperate? Well, this is the real why behind my actions. I desperately want an honest opinion of what i've written from people with 'experience' etc. who aren't going to be 'nice' cause they know me.
I think we all want this.
We thrive on feedback, but the 'its amazing' mantra from mom and dad isn't quite the contructive critique that it used to be....
Unbiased constructive critique is what i was looking for....and I know i'll GET it now (as in Italien Mafia 'get it'). lol.
With Hindsight, probably not the smartest move a writer of 500 words could make.........
