    Question [Solved] Where would I post my work in progress stories

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Reilley Turner, Jun 5, 2015.

    Before I start, I know I have to wait 2 weeks, make 20 posts and give 2 constructive critiques, but once all those requirements have been met, where would I post my work and how would I post my work?

    You post it in the Workshop (you'll see it further down in the forum) under the appropriate category :) So if it's a chapter from a novel, you post it under Workshop >> Novels. Or if it's a short story, those are categorised into genres, so you'd post it in the appropriate genre under that, etc.

    And you do it by creating a thread :)

    Okay, thanks for the quick reply. I will post my short story/novel in progress under there once I am allowed. And I was wondering, is the two week wait mandatory or is there a way to shorten/eliminate the waiting time? My writing is going strong, but I would like some critique from the internet, as friends and family generally, in my personal experience, give favorable critiques so that they don't hurt your feelings, which is not what I need at the moment. What I need is for people to be blunt in telling me what I should keep, what I should change drastically, what I should change slightly and what i should completly scrap.

    If you join with a paid membership you can skip the waiting time.

    Any other way? I don't have a lot of money, and my parents are not likely to pay for me unfortunately.

    Edit: I know it's only one dollar (now), but again, my parents will be reluctant to use paypal to pay for something for me sadly.

    Afraid not. Why don't you just wait 2 weeks if you can't afford to become a supporter? It's not so long :)

    Two weeks will fly by. ;)

    Use that time to learn from other people's critiques of other people's work.

    Just a heads-up - the $1 a month version does not give you supporter status. The cheapest version that gives you supporter status is $10 for 1 month and you have the option of choosing whether that's a one-off or recurring subscription.

    I pay anonymously a charitable contribution - $200 Finlandia Industries, $150 each for the Acorn Trust & Salon Puerto Rico. Crit, to date, has been excellent.
