I don't know if this is the right place for this, but I really didn't know where to put it.
So I'm writing an original story, completely original universe, and I'm basically just seeing if anyone is interested in reading, editing, proofreading, etc.
If anyone is interested in just reading it, I will gladly provide you with the writing as the editing is finished.
If anyone is interested in editing, let me know and I will provide you with my rough draft; I will provide 1 chapter at a time by your request.

I also need some help figuring out a title for this story, I lack the ability to figure it out myself, so help there would also be appreciated.

I will also provide background of the story as well if anyone needs more information.

I might be interested, but I'd need to know the genre and basic outline of the story.

Okay.
I guess you could call it a chase story. It is told from 2 main perspectives; one human male, and one Nii-Taa (second sentient species living on earth, probably should have mentioned that part, sorry) female. They both witness a murder, and are hunted for it. Over time they start to see that it was more than just a murder, and that they have become involved in something that could start another world war.
I can elaborate on anything you need.

I'll help out.
Cool, Thank you.

Hmm...sounds interesting. I'd need to read the first chapter to decide whether I want to help or not.

I've picked the story back up, with an update: It will be turned into a series of 4 stories.
The first will be called Pestilence. Again, if anyone is interested in any editing, I will send you portions to edit. If you are just interested in reading, be patient and wait for me to post it. I will probably be posting it as individual chapters or 2 chapters at a time, but I'm not sure yet.




And yes, I know I said I was leaving TZF, but this is the only place I know of to post it. So don't come breaking my door down cussing about how I left, you will be ignored.

Coolio.

Also, "Pestilence?" Are you naming it after the Horsemen of the Apocalypse?

Nah. When I see "Pestilence" I just think "Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

And I'm sorry if I screwed up any surprise you had planned, or something.

Nope, you're good.
But ya, they will be called Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death.

You people like dark stories right?

I wrote a story about children torturing each other. And Lord of the Flies is my favourite book.

So no.
