So today my novel finally reached 25 subscribers!! I wasn't sure anyone would actually enjoy reading it, but hey, I guess there's an audience out there for everything. I know loads of you on the forum have subscribed to my novel and left comments and likes, so thank you so much for all of that!
(And I am very slowly grinding through my list of subscriptions, because I always take on way more than I've actually got time for)
So I figured I'd make a celebratory thread for everyone to promote their work. I saw someone do something a little like this on wattpad, but seeing as the forums are trudging to the grave as we speak, we'll just pretend it was my idea first (haha, cue the crickets track)
So, the idea is:
- I'm going to post a word (and I guess an excerpt to go with it as I'm starting??)
- The person below will post either a paragraph, bit of dialogue, comic page, something from their work that contains the word. If you don't have a match, then go with something close, i.e. If I write sun, then you could use an excerpt that contains light, warmth, radiance etc.
- Once you've done that, pick another word for the person below to use!
Try to stick to advertising one work to stop things getting clogged up.
Please make sure you do point three, otherwise the thread will go kaput (RIP my self-promotion thread dreams) and of course, it goes without saying, check out some of the works in this thread!
I'll start with mine - I actually used a random word generator 'cause I figured that'd be more entertaining and I got trail (although I'm sure it means as a noun rather than a verb in this case):
That trail off sounded as if he expected Casper to say something. A blessing, maybe, anointed on him like the fortune bestowed by that plastic cat's bobbing paw. When nothing came, a deep sigh filled the quiet and he brushed past Casper to go inside.
And then for the next person, I'm going to choose the word sun!
