Finally, I have released the first chapter of an illustrated fantasy short story I’ve written. I’m so nervous about it. I’m not worried about the artwork, I’m pretty happy with that. I’m terrified that I put all this effort into writing and no one likes it! Or worse, it’s totally rubbish and everyone hates it.
Opinions are welcome. Although it’ll hurt, constructive criticism is absolutely appreciated. I know I’m going to have the odd armchair critic being an a**hat, but I will have to learn not to take everything to heart so much. Life is full of people how are not nice just because they can be.
I’m new to this writing thing. I’m bound to mess it up. My writing style will be clumsy, probably disjointed and lacking in sophistication. How am I to improve if I don’t put it out there?
I’ve taken inspiration from many people, places and even animals while creating a world. I’ve only scratched the surface of what’s in my head. I could have waited until I created the whole thing before publishing. I think I would have been waiting for several decades!
So, to read the first chapter of my short story CLICK HERE!!!! This fantasy story is set in Pleyon. A world of fairies, dragon shifters and war. Happy reading!
