    Would anyone kindly evaluate this VERY SHORT excerpt?

    This has about 90 words, I'm not sure If I'm correct.

    So, I think short stories are pretty much below the pacific number; 500.
    So yeah, A long story would be above 250/or 500 I seriously have no idea, because I never look how many words makes a very short, short, tiny, or large or massive story. But I just know J.T.T Tolkien's Lord of the Ring books have many just many words. about 600 pages each book. P1, P2, P3.

    Its a great story, this thread may also give you some advice when you start to get allowed to show everyone a Short Story.

    But, Short

    No problem, lots of people make the same mistake. It just takes a couple of weeks of being active on the forum before you can post and get good feedback :)

    No problem. Hang out a while, get to know us, then put it back up when you're able to - I bet that after doing your reviews and reading the threads for a couple weeks, then reviewing your own piece, what will end up here will be somewhat different than what you put up here today.

    ...and that's the point of waiting. Well, that and everyone wants to be reviewed, and few want to review, so there has to be a way to get reviews done! Oh, and welcome to the site! (Even if you are a Maple Leafs fan. At least your not a Canadiens* fan).



    *wow, my browser does NOT like spelling it Canadiens.
