Please tell me if this should posted in another thread (and/or move): I don’t understand why people post 2000+ words so often on this site? Is there a way to politely ask people to try and post shorter portions of their story? I have posted something long myself in the past so I understand why this may be a useful exercise. It just seems to me that there are often posts that include way over 2000 words. Don’t people understand that if they want feedback about something that they’ll stand a better chance of getting feedback if they post something around the 1000 word mark or less? I’m not really sure what mods can do about this other than PM people on a person to person basis? I believe there are guidelines in place advising short extracts already. Just wondered if anyone had any ideas suggestions? I like giving feedback, but a huge block of text instantly makes me think the person hasn’t analysed their own work enough because if they had then posting smaller selections for critique would be more common. Note: I understand there are reasons for posting longer extracts though. Not entirely against something ranging from 2000-4000 words. It is a big ask though if someone is posting 5000+ words in the workshop (that is around 15-20 pages in a novel!).
