Hey all. I'm not sure if this would be considered spam but I think I'm most likely in the clear. If not let me know and I'll take this down.
So anyway, I've started writing a novel a little while ago and I've been wanting to get some input from people who are at the core of the video game community. Since I've been a fan of Giant Bomb for quite a while now, I figured you all might be a good source for critique and feedback.
The novel is about a group of 4 friends who, fed up with their mediocre to crappy jobs following college, decide to start making games together. I've finished three chapters so far (about 11,000 words total or so) and am part way done with the 4th chapter. I decided now would probably be a good time to start asking for some feedback since it's still relatively early in the writing process but I finally feel I have enough to actually show people.
I'll link to google docs since that's probably the easiest way to share this without bogging down the forums with a thousand unformatted posts. If people seem interested I'll add future chapters as I finish them, assuming this post doesn't violate the rules of the forums to begin with. Let me know what you think and thanks for reading.
EDIT: I've added chapter 4 below and am currently working on chapter 5. Chapter 1 has also been heavily edited and reuploaded to Google Docs
