I've just had the first page of my current draft of my Mindflights story critiqued by Ms. Shreditor on the blog of Julie Coulter Bellon. Like a cat, I am purring happily away about the positive feedback, that I have an intriguing start and clean text (why yes, I am one heck of a self-proofreader, and by golly, I am proud that I do not suffer from humility in that particular area at all, although that's just about the only area where I do feel strong and confident.) On the other hand, I also feel stupid that I never stopped to consider double-spacing my lines, making my entry about twice as long as it should have been. *hangs head* I've just got into the habit of writing so that I can copy and paste my fanfics straight onto the web. I must stop and think next time before I submit. What do they say, fools rush in without checking the submission guidelines? Or something like that.
I've written fanfic under the names of Jane Jinn and Zelofheda, and some original fic under my real name.
