I already posted this in the authoring lounge, but I want as many eyeballs and opinions as possible. Read on.Hello, everyone. I'm in need of a little assistance. I just need a few folks to take a look at a sample of the novel I'm writing and give me some feedback on it. I'm trying to decide if this story should continue being a novel or if it should be a screenplay.
Screenplay writing comes more naturally to me it seems, but there aren't a lot of opportunities, so I decided to try my hand at novel prose. To be honest, I'm finding it a bit difficult. However, I'm my own worst critic, so I wanted to get the opinion of others.
You don't have to read the full 13 pages of the sample. This is a very, VERY rough first draft. The first page or two needs to be completely rewritten into traditional novel format, as I was attempting to try something different, but ended up hating it. The rest of the sample is in traditional novel format.
Do I have the chops to do novel prose, or should I stick with screenwriting?
If you'd be interested in helping me out with some feedback, add me to your network and send me a PM and I'll Copy/Paste the sample or send it as a file or something.
