Would anyone be

Would anyone be interested in reading a bumpy first draft of a Christian spiritual journey novel? 

Of course they don't. All your writing is terrible. And all of your ideas are about character arch.

Oh, Dynasty, shush uo!

You shush up, furcake!

no, you shush-

you little-

girls! I wasn't asking you! Would you please just let the CBers answer? sorry about them, I'm going to sign Dynasty up for obedience lessons.

obedience lessons? what do you think i am, a pet dog?

Dynasty. shush up!

Okay! Whenever you're ready, I'm excited to read it. I'll do my best to critique, although that's not always my strong point.

I just wanted to leave a comment so you know your thread isn't being ignored. :) This sounds really cool, and no matter what your inner critic and/or AE says, I'm sure your writing is amazing! I'm not a huge fan of Christian/spiritual exploration stories in general (not specific to you, it's just a "me" problem), so I likely won't be reading along, but I think you should go ahead and post it anyway!

Ok, so here's my teaser while I gather the courage to post this online(!) and if you aren't a Christian, I hope this dosen't offend you, this is not an affront to you, it's a reflection of my personal beleifs.


A teenage girl starts to question her secular worldview when she makes a Christian friend.

Ok so there's basiclly my topic sentence, I'll try and post this tomorrow, probably not a whole chapter, though, cause it's too much typing.

I'd love to read it! Christianity/spirituality isn't really my thing, but I'd still be happy to read your writing. :)

thank you for the awesome response to this thread, i'm sorry I can't put this up today, but i need to study for math so i won't get a D. thanks for understanding, i'm so sorry i'm always making excuses like this, I really wish i didn't have to.

Ok, so it's really hard for me not to procrastinate, but here we go...

Chapter One

Why on Earth did Mom have to take Lucy Banks up on her offer? I had plans. I was going to a pool party with Kenzie. Then Mom decided we should go to church, so there goes my Sunday. i don't get why people are into that stuff. what does that give you? i don't beleive in 'god' nonsense. I'm all here. 

But for some reason, Mom dragged me here, even though she knew I had plans. Why Mom wanted to come to one of these looney bins i don't know. She's usually a smart woman. I guess Lucy was extra persuasive on Friday. that lady certainly has her own ideas, and she makes them known. 

Anyway, when is this sermon supposed to end? the preacher has been talking for at least forty minutes. Would he mind just getting to the point? Finally, the man ends his sermon. only to start praying. Is there no end to this?


Ok, now is the time that I realize that this is not fit for any eyes other than my own. i mean, this is terrible. i'm crazy for posting this online. in rough draft form. when I won't even show my dad yet. So I promise I'll post more as soon as I can regain self-esteem. or stop procrastination, whichever comes first.

ok, now i realize i probably am really disappointing you guys. I'm sorry. I just hate my writing, especially when i'm sharing it. I heard that the worse you think you are, the better you're supposed to be, so I guess i'm really good... Na, just saying that proves me wrong XD. I'm sorry, I was actually slamming my writing just because I'm lazy. Forgive me?

correction and I know you guys would disagree, but this is just terrible! why could I not wait until at least the first round of edits?
