    Changed the name of "The Fires of Spring" to "The Newcomers" because there's a book already called that. I really liked that name too.

    Finished part two of the Omegas and the outline of The Newcomers. It took me forever to do so, by the way.

    And there I was wondering if I could cope with two things on the go at the same time lol. Good luck it sounds like you have your hands full.

    Is it beneficial from an progress perspective to have this many things on the go? The "pro's" I could see being, if you get stumped for ideas on one story, you've got other areas to slip into. What's the main "con"?

    Too much of a workload when it comes to stories that I'm working on all at once occasionally.

    Writing the outline for the Omegas is a hell of a lot easier than writing the actual story.

    You upload a ton of work. How do you keep up with the requirement of two critiques for each piece of your own writing?

    @ShannonH is correct. I've just run through your activity log Miller, and appears you haven't posted any critiques. I'm not sure what consequences there are for not following the guidelines for posting your own work, so I don't believe any of your threads will be deleted. However, I would recommend no longer posting any threads in the workshop unless you've met the requirements for doing so.

    It's not really my position to deal with these types of issues, so I'll let @Wreybies decide your fate.

    The consequences are simple:

    1) When a situation like this is pointed out, we request that the member make up the missing crits. ***IMPORTANT TO NOTE*** It's two crits for every new thing posted. 2-fer-1. Always and forever.
    2) If the member fails to do so once this is brought to our attention, then yes, threads are removed or closed if there have already been replies. We don't want to do anything that deletes the history of other members who may have given a crit.

    There are 28 workshop entries on this account. This means that I expect to find 56 individual, well considered, well written crits by the member the next time I look. And I will be looking.

    Most of these stories weren't originally meant to be completed on this site. Most I just hang onto or submit to other sites. I just gave run down of the stories I plan to complete overall.
