I've finished the first draft of chapter one. Anyone want to take a look?

It's the begining of a steampunk bronze punk historical mystery. A young woman invents time travel in ancient Greece.

The first chapter's only 8 pages... Ah come on. You know you have the time... Or do you? DO YOU? >_>

If I stick to the ~plan~ it should be easily serialised or published traditionally. Right now I'm tidying it up with the rest to go into the writing portolio. But I'm also working out just how many chapters I'll need to tell this story.

There's one thing I'm not sure about. It's been called The Rhodes Code from the start but I don't want the prof to think the novel is going to be a spin off or send up or whatever of the Da Vinci Code. It has nothing at all to do with it, and I'm starting to think the title sounds a bit like it would be. So I'm thinking of plagiarising myself and calling it 'Relative Chronologies' instead, at least for the purpose of the writing portfolio.

What say you?

Well, it sounds cool! What exactly would you like me to do? I wouldn't mind giving it a look. ;) I don't know much about Greece (save for some mythology).

I'll take a look. It'll be interested because I know how much a first draft can change over drafts. :)

I think I have time? I know I want to read it...!

And "The Rhodes Code" just sounds good. Keep it.
