    • Uhm.....I'm Jon, I'm 17.

      I have a story that's 260 pages long, which only one friend has read so far (due to my hesitant embarrassment and fear of my grammar), but it feels to me though the story needs another 250 pages for me to finalize the first book (it has become really complex). In my story I am focusing on the plot, characters, and places because I know that I can work on the grammar later. I believe that a good story needs both: a good easy read but also a strong plot. So at the moment I'm working on the plot :).

      I posted chapter 41 and recently chapter 39. I understand if it's too confusing or painful to read, leave me a comment though.

      I think your on the right path as far as what you want to do with your story, but don't get hung up on the number of pages you have at this time, if the story is complete and you do it in ten pages it is complete, but also remember that when you submit it at 250 pages, it does not mean that it will come back or be printed at 250 pages, because of the font they will use and the way they assemble the book. We, as artists and creators of our stories are sometimes our own worst enemy and will criticize our work more than anyone else, just because we are an insecure lot, it goes with the imagination I think. But if we let that stop us there would be no new books, no revelation of creative imagination and between you, me and the fencepost, I have read some crap that was "well recieved" and thought it was junk and wondered what they were smoking when they wrote it, when they published it and when someone said it was well worth reading. Everyone thinks at lone time "Who would want to read MY work?" so please, don't let that stop you, I am already very curious about your manuscript and would love to read it. Best of luck!

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
