    Hey, Hayla. Did you see the thread I posted here? You and I probably know many of the same people.

    Keep in mind the wise words of Hemingway.
    I think I scared Micah off.

    I think he said that he's only working on the one novel right now.

    I'm not real sure what you meant when you referred to all these "walk-ins" with their ideas, but New folks are always welcome to share their ideas here....always have been, always will be
    Hi Sunny,

    Perhaps TheInterloper's comment comes from being just 14? (I also got the impression that he thought maybe he knew Micah? Perhaps from another forum?)

    You're probably right, Flake...... I didn't think about that, and should have ♥

    No worries... you were only thinking of someone's feelings.

    Michal I sense a bit of rudeness when you say how many novels have you published, I'm just saying I could help you I'm guessing like me your proably going through puberty and can proably be a little 'bitchy' lol. No, I haven't written any novels but I have an idea about a kid going to Walmart and uncovering talismanic powers while almost getting kidnapped.

    ...OK dude...as a guy old enough to be your Dad, would you seriously THINK before you type!!! You come off soundin' like a meathead-when a lot of the time I think(hope)it's not intentional....

    Yes they were, and there is a difference between constructive criticism and arrogance. I think interloper was headed slightly toward the latter, which isn't what anyone, especially newbies, need here!

    I'll echo the others who have said to get "On Writing."
    And if you enjoy writing, go for it!
