Hi, everyone. I'm new to this and this is my first ever post. I can already tell that the stacks is great. Well, I was thinking and I had an idea for a short novel. The inspiration for it was a scary story I heard once. The plot would go like this: Unnamed main character lives a regular life. He goes to sleep one day and wakes up in a government prison. Turns out the government has suppressed the population by hacking into the minds of the people and changing what they see. Main character is only out of the simulation because of a glitch. The government sends him back into the program where he attempts to fight what he is seeing. I haven't figured out the ending or any other characters. So tell me what you think about the idea and if enough people like it I will post a chapter of it up soon.

It sounds good, but not quite developed enough. If you keep working on it I'm sure it will be great!

Not a short novel,its called Novella.Its okay,but unsetelled.Its needs loads of editing and a little bit of slowing.But i bet people will read it.for a time pass(no offense) and Pie is still needs a lot of developing!

Hello! I'm supper happy you're inspired to write, but your story sounds very similar to a movie called The Matrix. Your story may be totally different (I don't know). Make sure to read a synopsis of the movie before writing to make sure you avoid some of the major plot points. Other than this, I like the idea. Good luck!

It sounds really good, but I ould make it a large novel, not a novella, since the idea sounds promising. :) ~Jared

That sounds like it could be really interesting, but similar things have been done before- dystopian governments and mind hacking and stuff like that. Be sure to make your story stand out. It could be great, though. magic*esi ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; SEMICOLONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your idea is great, and with some organized, interesting writing behind it all, I'm sure it'll become a bestseller. How did you even come up with this? Sounds like one cool novel. Have you thought of a name? Will this be a series?
