Wasn't sure where to post this question, I am hoping here is okay. I have searched for this answer but I am sure it is somewhere but I can't seem to find the answer. I read that you should reply twice for every piece you post. That is just polite and understandable, and I am glad there is a policy like that. I respect and approve of this practice. But the part that is stumping me a bit is story size, the closest thing I can see for a recommendation is in the novel section, where it is advised not to post entire novels. (That would be insane) I notice many post snippets of short stories, and people wonder where it is going. Is there some 1000 word or less rule. I had a story I was thinking of posting but it is closer to 3000 but I haven't seen anything quite that long. I don't want to be rude or inconsiderate. I actually have found great advice so far, what a wonderful site. To be honest though I gather just as much insight from reading critique from others work as much as my own. Odd. Though I am sure to add my thoughts too, I am not English major which is obvious but I do have opinions on how the work makes me feel and think and share them. Could someone please point me in the right direction, what is acceptable length to post of a short story, novel chapter or snip of a chapter? The fear I have is, if it is too long others will have to invest too much time and may not review it. If it is too short, the reader may miss the whole concept and not review the piece as a whole or ignore it as a flash in the pan because I spent little time investing myself. Sorry if this appears obvious, I just want to make sure I am considerate in honoring proper posting guidelines.
