Would you read this?

I am perfectly happy with only writing this for myself - I am writing it and learning my writing process at the same time as using NaNo/IndyWriMo as the motivator(s) to write every day. That said, if people think they might be intrigued enough to read it, I might just spend the time, once this first draft is finished, to learn how to rewrite/edit a first draft - and all of the other steps involved - with a view to maybe getting it published.

Synopsis: Justified Means? (working title)

Susah is a scientist of an alternate near future that was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at age fourteen. Even now in 2048 there is no cure for this debilitating chronic illness and, by the time the story starts, she has become considerably more disabled. Earlier research into using stem cell therapy as a treatment and potential cure has continued and she becomes caught up in the seedy criminal world of stem cell piracy. She is also working on a study at the local university into eugenics and gene therapy and is wrestling with herself about the ethics involved in these complex issues.

I am also about to post an excerpt. Both this Synopsis and the Excerpt are also viewable at my NaNo page under the "Novel Info" tab.

Thank you! Coming from you that is very encouraging as I love your writing and artwork.

I wonder - would you consider doing me one of your amazing cover pictures for the NaNovel? I may have to change the title at some point so … well, it is totally up to you, of course!

i've now read the synopsis and the excerpt but i'm not sure i could read this book, although i might send it to a few people who should

i'm struggling too much with health issues for the excerpt to go down easily - although it is well written, susah's story is too real, i don't have the distance i need for this atm

Thank you so much for our thoughts, and I apologise if it was triggering. *hugs*

you're welcome, and don't worry - it wasn't so much triggery as my head isn't ready to go where your story is right now

I understand. I have been traveling this journey for more than fifteen years (about thirty, to be honest!). *more hugs*
