this is a whispering thread (because I am shy) [More:]i am trying to work on nanowrimo for the first time in years (having never gotten past day four) but even though i am a professional writer i have no concept of plot or execution. and i can't share it with anyone because it is a trashy romance in which i work out my own issues. sigh.
also, i am embarrassed that i did not use a [more inside] tag above.

i'd be happy to beta for you. i've never done that for anyone except for college papers, which is i guess isn't called being a beta reader :)

i'm going to make sure my email is in my profile if you want to email me.

The posthumously published The Garden of Eden shows Hemingway writing a trashy romance in which he worked out his own issues.

If it was good enough for Hemingway, it's good enough for you.

Write like blazes.

i would also be happy to review your story - i like to read things and have taken gobs of creative writing classes so peer review is something i used to do a lot of. i also used to work through my romantic issues through writing, which was entertaining when i started dating a guy that was in my class. he blushed a lot.

I signed up for NaNoWriMo and have written not a blessed word so far. You can have all my words allotted for the first week. It's a shame to waste 'em!
