    No worries. Here on the site, if someone offers fiction writing, we label it self promotion. That's just our policy on this site.

    If someone wants to read your story, they can private message and ask to see it.

    Good luck! Keep sending it out, you never know who will snap it right up!

    It doesn't matter. I wrote it for me, and it's partly a true story, which wouldn't be apparent to anyone but me. I've gotten no reaction from the few people I have showed it to. After "seeing" 11-22-63 for the first time yesterday and coming across this site today I was curious what those similarly affected by Sadie and Jake might think, particullarly a "Mr. Crandall" (?).
    I have never "read" anything by Stephen King, having only gotten through maybe a third of "The Tommyknockers", but have listened to the audio book of 11-22-63 twice. I took out a DVD of 11-22-63 from my library on Saturday (never thought it would be there) and now may listen to 11-22-63 again if I can find it.

    Do you prefer to listen to a book rather than read the written form? I think you might enjoy the writing in 11/22/63

    I listen in the car, read at home, but not much time. The 11-22-63 audio book had all the words.

    That is kinda funny (the part I put in bold). I guess I have just never gotten into listening to books. I find it more relaxing to hold an actual book in my hands and read it, but I don't have a long commute either so don't spend a lot of time in my vehicle.

    "We didn't ask for this room or music.
    We were invited in.
    Because dark surrounds us, turn to the light.
    We endure hardship to be grateful for plenty.
    We grow with pain to be astounded by joy.
    We have been given life to deny death.
    Because we are here, let's dance."

    Paraphrased from her acceptance speech at end of "11-22-63" to be 280 characters and precisely fit into a Tweet.

    Someone unreal, Sadie Dunhill, only a character in the book and the Internet film "11-22-63", has touched more hearts than most real people.

    In "11-22-63" Jake saving JFK caused George Wallace election, then our world fell apart.
    What did a foolish time traveler do to cause Trump?
