Hi. I'm DLeo. I am new to writing and am slowly working on my first book. A fantasy. I happened upon these forums a couple of days ago and have spent hours reading both posted works and critiques. Awesome. I've found lots of awesome here. Confession: When I type 'new to writing' I mean new like ... I had to look up what SPAG meant. Not funnin'. So, anything I may post will be riddled with the original doo-doo. Apologies in advance. Of course, I've already had my inner interview with Oprah and a few others, congratulating me on hitting the book of the month list or w/e. So, just in case, how might my sharing a chapter here impact future publishing endeavors? My Google-fu is fairly strong but I still haven't found a definitive answer. Could any of you share with me or show me where I can learn more about posting work online? Thank you much. My GED doesn't give me much oomf and I lack any other degree or diploma. I am hesitant to venture into critiquing another's writing. Hell, I don't even know where to put my own commas, much less yours. The best I can offer is my sharing how you made me feel. I know that isn't exactly valuable but it's what I can bring to the table. Thanks again and nice to meetcha. I enjoy reading your writing.
