Currently I have started a group called "Author's Workshop," which is shaping out to be a nice forum. http://www.webook.com/community/groupInfo.aspx?gId=1ca87b9328724ad9aa8b558cf9ef975e
In it I am workshopping a short novel that I am working on called Playing Chess With the General.
Any feedback you leave will be greatly considered and will of course be returned on some of your writing.
As for me:
I actually do look something like the graffiti that is my avatar, I mean, at least I've got the hat.
I am 24 and I write everyday in a small library with a terrible selection of English Books. In addition I study law everyday and the Spanish language (which makes sense considering everyone here speaks Spanish). In my spare time I eat and sleep and occasionally perform rituals by casting shadows of different people onto the walls of my room where they maneuver until they are occupying the same space - I think this is more satisfying than regular sex, meaning I think the shadows are the real winners, for overcoming the indestructible barriers that we cannot - except in childbirth and genetic coding. I find blood and DNA incredibly fascinating.
1. I will gladly trade feedback with anyone who requests!!
2. When Jules and I lived in California by the Valley of the Moon we would always bathe in Jack London's bathtub but now I am spend my days ambling along the narrow cobbled streets of Lorca's Granada with an umbrella, shunning the inevitable lottery tickets and listening to asthmatic accordionistas.
