I posted in this forum, so obviously I'm new. Cog, I've read your little blurb that you post on every intro thread and I do have to say I am disappointed on how bad an idea it might be to post my work here, but at least I can post excerpts and brainstorm. I don't know if this will be a forum I'll really commit to. I've done some browsing and I feel like this place will be useful for me, so we'll find out. I'm working on a novel right now. It's a challenging thing to do, but I'm confident that I have a terrific plot and am just in need of the motivation and a ton of editing and re-editing of my work. I think I'd have a lot more confidence if this wasn't my first shot and getting something published and if it wasn't such an undertaking. But since you guys seem positive and willing to give constructive criticism as well as a little encouragement, I think I'll definitely try to contribute to this site as well.
