Here’s a really fun way to check out if you’ve got the writing magic! www.webook.com. You write and other people rate your work and if your mojo is good, your work rises up the ranks and you get to submit more and more of the work. It does cost £3.95 to submit each work but it looks really addictive. Obviously you’re part of the community so you need to rate other peoples’ work too but that’s quite painless because to begin with, you only have to rate the first 250 words.
I’ve submitted a portion of page one of ‘New Fire’. Let’s see if it goes anywhere!
