View Full Version : OEL Light Novel?

08-25-2011, 10:54 PM
Hi, I am a bit of a writer and recently I got the idea of creating an Original English Language Light Novel. I have never written a full novel before but this idea really intrigued me. I haven't done much with it and have just created the back-story and the beginning and some of the characters, but what I'm wondering is if this has ever been done before or if it even really could be done. The western novels are a lot different than light novels and I'm wondering if a light novel could actually even have a chance of being published in America.

Basically what I'm asking is.. Is it worth it to try and create something like this? Or should I just write a regular novel? I think the difference is mainly that Light Novels use a lot of pictures and they are generally quite a bit shorter than your average novel. I don't know if anything like this has ever been done before, but if you know of any OEL Light novels, please let me know.

Thanks for taking your time to read this!
