Let me take a look.

It's not done. Should I break it up and post the first half for now so you can at least tell me what's wrong with that part of it?

Sure. When in a rut (or ditch, depending on severity), fresh perspective, feedback, and encouragement is just the cure.

Okay. Be brutal gentle.

I've always been about honesty.

That happens to me as well. If my chapter is not published for a long time, I'm starting to have second thoughts about it and give up in the end. DX

It sucks, doesn't it? I'm trying to push through the trouble spots, but I just can't make it work.

Me, too. Truth is, even though my chapter is already published, I still kept on replacing it with edited ones. I just cannot get enough. XD

I have a weird thing about wanting the posted version to be "official". I probably need to get over that and be willing to change stuff later.

(Ack, did I never friend you back? I suck! I'm sorry...)

It's all right...

If ever I wanted the posted version to be official, I think I wouldn't post anything at all. *lol*

all writers doubt themselves. seriously. i know for a fact that a lot of professional writers still do the writers group thing just to get feedback from others. the thing you have to do is forge ahead. don't give up. :)

Thanks... sometimes it's hard to remember that I'm not the only one who looks at my work and goes, "Man, this sucks."
