    In order to post something for critique, you have to have been a member for two weeks. You also have to have critiqued two other pieces. The main purpose of the workshop is to learn how to critique, rather than to receive critiques of your own work.

    Yeah, you can post it in your blog.

    It's not allowing me to write in my own blog - is that also something I can only do in time?

    Before you rush to post your writing, you should probably understand why the site operates this way. See Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work?.

    The Workshop rules don't apply to the blog, do they?

    No. But blogs don't receive much critique, and the reasons for the Workshop rules are worth understanding anyway.

    The value of critique is mostly to the person giving critique.
    Also, giving critique places you in a better position to effectively use critique received.

    Shifting focus from getting critique to giving it is a faster track to better writing.

    there are no chapters in a movie script/screenplay...

    and if it's for a feature film, posting 110 pages or so would take too long to post in bits... more importantly, you should NEVER post a complete work anywhere on the internet, if you hope to see it published/produced some day... that's why we advise only posting a brief excerpt, if you need feedback on some writing problem...

    the alternative is to ask someone you can trust to check it out privately, by email... i mentor many aspiring screenwriters, so if you want one-on-one help, feel free to drop me a line...

    meanwhile, welcome to the site and be sure to read all the rules 'n regs before posting any excerpts for review...

    love and hugs, maia
