    A MESSAGE FOR CREATIVE WRITING GROUP VISITORS: Hi. If you've joined the Creative Writing Group, welcome! People don't post in there everyday and that's just the nature of the beast it seems. I created the group so that writers could get solid (pretty solid) critiques about their work, and where they could ask questions and brainstorm about projects. So there are other groups at CAF where members post poems, et. al. and everyone in the group says "How lovely." If that's what you want, join those groups. My group was intended for honest reactions and constructive criticism. Often when members learn that, they stop visiting the group. SO if you have some creative work that you want criticized, START A NEW THREAD and put your writing as the first post. Maybe we can lure some others back eventually. Do not be afraid.

    I still come back here every now and again. It's hard to be on here when you are unemployed. I just accepted three new folks to my Creative Writing group, but no one is posting in there right now so I don't get notifications. Pray for me any of you that come to this page. My marriage is ending.

    Good morning, Nom the Wise (Well, it is morning in the UK)

    I have been trying to submit the conclusion of "A New Beginning". I am always told that, despite the fact that I am sending it in two parts, my effort is too long.

    I have tried calling the second part "Continuation of A New Beginning" but the system still tells me that it is too long. The system KNOWS. So, what can I do?

    Incidentally, Your encouragement is making me think that I must, at last, start on my book. I am told somewhere that everybody has one book to write - so I should start on mine!!!!

    I hope that you and your family had a very happy Christmas and that you will all have the very best of everything in 2012.

    God bless

    Justin, you don't have public message wall. I PM'd you thinking that I would e-mail Ch 1 just to you, because as I said I'm still holding the manuscript pretty close to my heart. I didn't expect (or I don't think I expected) you to be a critical guru. All I ever look for is a reaction from people, a basic synopsis of what they think they've read vs. what I think I wrote (if you understand me). I think I'm going to do a basic copyright on the mss before I post any of it in the group just to safe. I've been avoiding that because it's been under a drastic revision for some time now. I'll try to keep everyone posted and I thank you for your interest. It has actually put the fire under me to finish polishing and just DO something public with it.

    Hi Nom,

    I realised I was a bit rude butting into the 3 devils thread like that so I've decided to post here and let MIndovermatter2 do his/her thing.

    Liked your poems by the way, especially Recreation. It reminds me of A Canticle for Leibowitz. Same basic message, if I'm on the right track?

    Rereading my posts I realised that I've given the wrong idea. I'd like to read your first chapter out of pure interest, not because I want to become your critical guru or anything like that. It helps to have someone insightful, objective and ruthless to go over one's MS, but I'm not offering myself for the job!

    My own sequel is going well. The basic plot is complete as is the background info, more or less. A lot will probably change as the novel progresses, but I know exactly how the last chapter of the book will end. It's now all about filling in the middle.

    I hope your Christmas is a blessed one.

    All the best,
