Reading through the current posts, I see (for example) someone explaining that 6Kwords is so long that many people won't read it in detail or feel like reviewing it. Yet the forum description says, "post short stories here". Is it really supposed to be just a paragraph or two? I suppose there are many different levels that someone might need help on, from paragraph level up to managing subplots within a novel. True, it would be tedious to post a hundred-page novel and expect or need help on the level of the paragraph, such as knowing to use them and understanding the concept of topic sentences. But, in a long work, someone might advise about active and passive voice and point to a general area; he would not be expected to quote and highlight each one individually. So long works should not scare people away, if the expectation is for higher-level help. I've not read back very far, but it seems that the trend in the Short Stories / Science Fiction sub-forum is to post 300 to 1000 words, without first proof-reading it himself! So, is it possible to get reviews on deeper topics, and does that go on from time to time? I'd hate to scare everyone off by posting a completed short story.
