Hey all! I'mma be a bit noobish here... if the question is redundant, please throw me in the right direction ~
I'm totally new to the web novel community to be honest, but I have been writing for a long time. A friend of mine recommended that I start a web novel, and after doing some research, it seems like a pretty fun idea.
I have a story that I have been working on for a year; it's a good 100K words and growing whenever I have the time, but I'm kinda sitting on it because its... I have re-writing problems (in that I constantly feel things need to be rewritten). For now I think that it's fine, since I wanted to finish the first 'book' in some shape or form before really starting to post it (real life dictates that I need to be well ahead on my deadlines), but I am wondering at what point is a good point to but a chapter up? I realize it's subjective, but are there any recommendations that you should be on a second or third draft before one posts their work? (Or, what is really expected of a web novel in its infancy and beyond?) ...Might be a silly question as I'm sure its different for everyone, but my brain wants to ask it so there it is.
I have been doing some research, but I feel like 3/4ths of it is more... getting ahead of where I currently am. Currently, this project of mine is for my own personal development and something to fill the time while desk warming. Deadlines/serialization are one thing, but I don't have any particular desire to make it something that I need to manage and be on top of all the time - at least not for now. Heck I'm still learning how to use FaceBook. Still, I love talking about writing and stories and I would love to have the community and feedback it seems web novel writers have. Any recommendations on building that community would also be greatly appreciated.
I'm kind of a lurker by nature, so I'm not very good at the whole posting thing, but gotta start somewhere I guess ^^"". For now, I shall go back to lurking. Thank you for taking the time to read my nonsense ~ ^^ ~ *bows*
