I just printed out Chapter 1 to read today. So far, I find it beautifully written, and believe me, I don't say that about everybody.

Thank you very much! :) I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. :) I'm now working on Chapter 3 (or rather, trying to restrain myself from working on it, as I have 60 pages of grad school papers to write over the next 1.5 weeks--eek!).

I just took a quick skim through your LJ, and congrats on finishing your NaNo!!! That's a major accomplishment, and I'm looking forward to reading your story, or rather, novel. :) Do let me know if you post it on SQ and somewhere on LJ. There are quite a number of HP fan fic communities here on LJ, so I'm curious to know where you decide to post. Schnoogle is also a good place to post fan fic.

The nice thing about SQ is that you're forced to go through a beta-read. While this means that your stuff gets posted chapter by chapter, which could take a while (especially if you've got a long piece, like your novel, that you've already finished, rather than a work in progress), the beta-reader's comments are SO helpful, and I think it's completely worth the wait, especially if you're interested in bettering your writing rather than just posting stuff up on the Web. My beta-reader has been amazing.

Oh, and I'm sorry to hear about your job. I hope everything turns out for the best.

BTW, when I was driving down from Boston to the DC area for Thanksgiving last week, I passed a sign that said "Monsey" (either on 287 or the Garden State; I forget which), and I immediately thought, "Hey, I now know someone who lives in Monsey!"
