Don't forget copyright laws, Cadence. I've left a paper trail all over the internet going back years, and I told some people elements of the story when you were in diapers.
When you send your query letter to an agent, they'll probably google your novel and this thread will come up. And then they'll ignore your query.
Thank you for the idea of a girl with infinite power, though. I hope I'll get it published one day.
And I never wore diapers. I'm British.
the fact is, no one here has seen enough of empress theresa in its current form to be able to state whether it is publishable, or not.
Copyright law is pretty straight forward. Someone would have to copy more than 10% of the actual text in a verbatim or recognisable manner before you could sue for copyright violation, at least in Australia.
"I won't answer your reporters's questions. Nobody elected you. I'll talk to elected heads of state when necessary for the public good.
"I saved your lives. All I want in return is the right to walk the streets without being hounded by curiosity seekers and the paparazzi. You owe me that much."
That definitely sounds stuck up and rude, sorry. If she's a hero doing things for the people's good, then I don't think she should sound like it's just a duty she HAS to do and like just leave me alone about it!
“There is another important point. My work isn’t done. I still have to watch what HAL is doing. Some people will want me to do this or that with him. They will demonstrate for their pet project when it will benefit them at the cost to others. I cannot allow myself to be influenced by demonstrations. I have a responsibility to be fair to everybody."
Neither the House members nor any of the millions watching could believe it. They had never heard of any person with any kind of achievement no matter how small not seeking some kind of recognition for it. Nobody was immune. Even Medal of Honor winners, whose aura depended on a show of humility, at least gave one interview to one reporter. Here I’d just saved the world, and I wanted nothing to do with them. The all-powerful World Empress wouldn’t make the rounds of the talk shows and political meetings. I wanted a private life.

I have another thread on another forum that's years old. Nobody over there trashes my story. They're not jealous writers.
