    Has anyone's work been critiqued here and became famous?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by iChaotix, Jan 9, 2013.

    Just a curious question. I'm new here and I was wondering if someone's original literature has ever been posted on this site for critiquing purposes and have become successful in the future?

    We advise that you not post writing you intend to later submit to a publisher.

    Like Cogito said, you should only post here practice works that you don't intend on publishing. Maybe your question could include people who have been helped and critiqued by this site and later gone on to publish something? I'm sure there are a few of those out there.

    Same here! I was making millions of dollars a minute, but I got bored after about a fifth of a second and quit. So I'm still poor, but happy(ish).

    You have this wonderful ability to ignore the point of a thread and go straight to quoting rules or guidelines of the forums. You would make an excellent vogon.

    He asked if someone had posted something here AND THEN gone on to become famous, NOT if what they wrote here was then published and made them famous.

    iChaotix, I mean this with respect, if you want to be famous really quickly, hire an agent willing to help you with your writing. That person will tell you pretty quick if you have what it takes to be famous.

    Or, consider reading a number of the critiques on this site of stories similar to what you write and then decide if similar critiques of your work would help you become a better writer. If so, please join us. We are happy to help you help yourself to becoming famous.
