Limit for critique?

Postby jackitaylor » Sat Sep 02, 2017 10:52 am

I am thinking of shelving my novel for a while and start doing some flash fiction and short stories, for practice and maybe I can manage to get something published. I already have something in the critique section right now. Would having a second one, in another genre be too much to have out there at once?

I took a quiz online at some writing site. They said I should write short stories not a novel.
They pointed out that many novelists started out with short stories.

I do not see a lot of new things posted for review here, so IMHO posting more as you finish them should be okay.

Thanks for the reply, Pat. I was thinking that there weren't any new pieces for critique. I posted it. At least, it gives folks here something to do LOL

When I copy and paste from the doc i wrote in, the indenting disappears and it ends up all left aligned. Can't figure out how to indent without using the space bar. So far, nobody's complained about the lack of indent for the start of paragraphs

A very active site for critiques is Scribophile. It's for free or you can pay for more added features. Regardless of the one you use, you will have people critique. Like I said, it is a very active site. I've used it many times over the years - you can get some great insight from readers.

Jacki, the forum software (phpBB) does not allow extra spaces or indents in text. So you'll simply have to insert an extra return between paragraphs to show the new paragraph.

I've been a member of a site called critters.

http://www.critters.org

That site is, and I quote:

> Critters is a member of the Critique.org family of on-line workshops/critique groups,
> and is for serious writers of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror. You get your work
> critiqued in exchange for critiquing the work of others, both of which are invaluable
> ways to improve your writing

I haven't been very active there of late. But I've found the critiques to be quite valuable when I was.

I think it would be fine.
You ask me what I thought about
Before we were lovers.
The answer is easy.
Before I met you
I didn't have anything to think about.
