I just posted a short story (about 700 words) to the image writing contest and now have a question. "Is it proper to ask for feedback from the members of the forums concerning my post to one of the contest?" If asking is not proper in the forums could I ask for feedback through my e-mail? I ask because I am a new member and don't want to break any of the Rules, written or unwritten, in the writers forum. I am very interested in what people think of my writing both in terms of style, concept, content and mechanics (grammar/spelling/punctuation) and will appreciate any comments and criticism that will help me improve my writing. Thanks, J.D.
