    Can we get a sticky thread for tiny little WIP questions?

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by GingerCoffee, May 7, 2014.

    We have a lot of threads where people just want an opinion on something small, not really a thread worthy question. The one I have right now is,

    " ... When they ask to be her friend, she’ll say, yes,” I said as I watched another satellite cross the rings.

    Or

    " ... When they ask to be her friend, she’ll say, yes,” I said aloud as I watched another satellite cross the rings.

    She's talking to herself and it's clear when you read the whole paragraph. I just wondered if I should emphasize that fact by adding 'aloud'?​

    See how that's not really thread worthy? Of course we'll have to ask @dillseed not to spam the thread with general grammar questions. ;) So maybe it needs to be something titled:

    Opinions on my WIP: do you favor this, or that?
    or
    The sounding board: on my WIP, do you favor this, or that?

    I wonder how others feel about it. Or is it too confusing and/or unnecessary and such questions belong in the general writing sub-forum?

    I like this idea. Less cluster is always good.

    I think it's a good idea - sometimes I have a dilly of a time titling my questions trying to come up with the right term.
