Actually, not too many of us ARE writing novels. Just a few. New members are always welcome.
We have a few newer threads. You should post something on one of them. (try this one http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=539875
I think posting the first chapter 1st would have saved the rest of us some confusion. You can just cut and paste it to your post. You do lose the formatting, so you have to go back through (indents, italics, etc).
Posting your novel, all of it, on your web page isn't such a hot idea. when you go to have it published
they'll want to know if it's ever been published before. Some contests, etc, won't take it if it's been up on-line. I don't think posting bits of it at a time with a writing group counts. THe only ones who would see would be your group (us) and not all of it at once.
