I disappeared and I’m sorry but between work, family and personal issues, I’ve barely had time for anything fun. So I’m plotting my comeback to writing. I have a story planned, and omg is this one a doozy! I would like to find a beta reader who would be willing to work with me on this project. If interested, please email me at SecondhandSiren@gmail.com with the subject “SuperLuv”
Reblog if you’re currently writing a novel, even if it’s only in your head or scribbled in the back of a notebook somewhere.
Think about how many books don’t exist yet.
"I spent four months trying to kiss you and the last six weeks trying to figure out how I managed to fuck everything up. All I want now is to make it right, to make you see how sorry I am and why you should give me another chance. And I just want to know—are you rooting for me? Are you hoping I pull this off?"
"I’m rooting for you," she whispered.
Thank you! There are a few that I know of. Of a lot of them I haven’t actually used, though:
www.youngwriterssociety.com (only for around 13-25 year olds, but really good feedback)
www.wattpad.com (doesn’t really give good feedback, mostly things like OMG I LOVED IT UPLOAD SOON)
I hope that helped!
Do. Write. Finish.
I know, you’re saying, “That’s easier said than done.” I know it is! So fucking what? A big-ass boulder tumbles down from the mountaintop and falls on your hand and pins the limb, you either gnaw through your arm like a goddamn coyote or you die under the rock. Door won’t open? Kick it down. Wall blocking your path? Bash it with your skull until it falls or you do."Chuck Wendig (via get-scribbling)

Billy is a sophomore in high school, and twice a week, he volunteers at Listeners, a suicide hotline. Jenney is an “incoming,” a caller, a girl on the brink.

Billy, struggling with a deteriorating relationship with his depressed father, is the only one who understands. Through her pain, he sees hope. Through her tears, he feels her heart. And through her despair, he finds love. But is that enough?
