I've got a novel Im working on in the horror genre and I'm five chapters into it. I'd like to post the first chapter to see what kind of response i'd get from it and also to get some helpful critique, but I have some reservations... It's something I would like to get published if it doesn't completely suck, haha. Its going to be a long novel, probably four or five hundred pages.... would posting the first chapter completely hamper my chances of getting it published? Also, the first chapter is almost 5,000 words.... is that too much to post in the workshop? I'd like to post the whole chapter if I can so that anyone who reads it will understand the scene..... but if it's too much, it's too much. Just let me know. Would anybody be interested in reading something that long in the workshop? I look forward to hearing your feedback....Thanks.
