YA Novel

The below post is the fifth chapter of the young adult novel I started in earnest a few weeks ago. I have this kind of goal to get the thing written this summer, so I'm going to post bits of it to keep me encouraged. The plan, I suppose, is to remove older chapters as I put up new ones. So, for now, my two-and-a-half readers, enjoy.

Wow! That's an increase of, what, like forty percent? Glad to have you around, Fringes. I'm so shaking in my boots over your next SLQ review, by the way. Would you post the thing already?

For you, yes, I will post it tonight. It'll be sometime after the Friday night enchiladas and margaritas. I'll even order dinner to go instead of eating at the restaurant. How's that for personal service? Keep checking in...

The review is up. I hope it's useful, although I'm beginning to have my doubts. Enjoy.

Sorry to intrude (although technically this would make me your 4.5th reader, or at least bump you up to your 4th...), do novel publishers have the same reservations about considering blogs publications as poetry journals? Because I know most journals/mags/zines won't publish something if it's been up on a Web site since they consider it previously published...Just a thought...

No intrusion, Ceebie. I may be way off, but I think most journals/mags/etc., care less about the blog publication of a poem or story than they do about the publication of the same poem or story in other journals/mags/etc., especially since blog posts can be deleted. Besides, the editors would have to somehow come across the blog while the post existed in order to know it had been "published."

As for me posting chapters, I'm only going to keep them up for a week or so, and then throw up a new one. So, technically, they will have been "published" for about a week.

Let me know if you have other ideas about this. I'm curious to hear them.
