View Full Version : A sample of my writing

These are the first four scenes of a novella I started yesterday. The story takes place in 2060, when dinosaurs have been cloned and placed in a national park in Guatemala. The heroes are a couple of park ranges who have to get a family of tourists through the park and the antagonists are a gang of poachers.

Sorry, the site tells me I need to be a member to view it, and I'm trying to keep a lid on my memberships.

Be careful how much of it you put online if you want to get it published one day - publishers can get very pernickety about work that has been 'previously published'.

Oh, and make sure your story has nothing, absolutely nothing, ever, even remotely resembling Jurassic Park. Even the vague premise you outlined above would cause a publisher to bin it without turning a page...

OTOH, if you're just writing for yourself and an online audience, or for nanowrimo, go for it and enjoy the freedom to write what you want. :)
