    Ha! Yeah, I've learned that while families are great for confidence boosting, they're not exactly helpful for actually cleaning up the story. Scribophile has a paid version, (and a free version) Right now because it's NaNo if you sign up with this link you can get a 20% off. https://www.scribophile.com/join/nanowrimo Basically with paid you get to post more work, have more space in your inbox. It's definitely not required but I liked it because I didn'th ave to delete previous work (and the comments that came with it) to post new chapters. Nearly all the crits I got were incredibly useful, the only one that wasn't was someone who just did not fit the books demographics which meant the story didn't really sit right with him.

    I sort of lost my train of thought, I know I had a point here.


    edit: Speaking of NaNo, their forums are pretty active during NaNoWriMo and sometimes splinter off and keep in contact throughout the year.

    @Jaded@Jaded I LOVE those cat pins! I meant to tell you that a few days ago but forgot.

    also, tell me to write.
    edit: I'm dumb. I meant horse/unicorn/whatever

    haha, I figured that's what you meant (in re: edit) Thanks, I love them! I was so sad when they got lost, then Pestilence went out of stock, then they got lost again. It was a rollercoaster, but I'm glad I have them all now :eek:

    Also get to writing! The world needs ALL the words.
