    Posting

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by BlackFire015, Mar 25, 2009.

    Okay, I'm writing a novel and I was told to post my new work with my old so that readers could see how it changed. So, the posting box or editor, says that the word limit is like 3,000 words and I'm over by close to 4,000 words with both the old and new works present. Should I:

    A: Post down at the bottom as a reply
    or
    B: Open a new thread

    :confused:

    If it is a rewrite or additional chapter you should post it in the original thread as a reply.

    If it is a completely different story you should post it in a new thread after your reviewing requirements are met. (If you haven't already.)

    Just post it in one thread as a two part post. Chances are the reviews are going to be broken down that way if your story is already breaking the word limit.

    few members will review such long pieces, so why don't you just post small excerpts, when you need feedback on a specific issue?
