Aaaah I see! Thanks for all the info Wildbow and THANKS FOR MY FIRST REVIEW!! Wow. Not only is this my first review for the website, but it's the first review of my prose writing EVER. So. Grateful!
And yes the beginning has plagued me... I wonder how it would work if it just started with her walking to school instead of looking at the dress. Hm. You've given me much insight and food for thought and I'm so grateful you took the time to read Rema! I'm more psyched than ever to get to the later chapters. Second half of the book is my pride and joy!
P.S. I really am here on the forums just because I think you all are awesome. I'm not kidding... I live in LA and am surrounded by career ambition. It's nice to hear from people who have independent spirit! But if it gives me an edge up on the reviews, then all the better. Thanks so much again. Big smile on my face, like this: ^_______________________^
