Re: How Short Is Too Short?

They don't list a minimum. But I would hazard a guess a drabble would be a no, flash would likely be a hard sell for winning. Good question as to what is the shortest story to win.

Re: Writer's Group

It wasn't their cloud I was concerned with on that, it was there word processor. Though it does seem they have changed it. Everyone seems to say not to use Google Docs on the answer sites. When looking further, it seems though it looks OK it has formatting errors and can't handle more than 100 pages...

Re: Writer's Group

Do we have to use Google Docs? Have they removed the 'we own a % of what you create with it' clause from the Terms of Service? I have a fully functional copy of Word, and I reluctantly put things on Dropbox as it is, as I don't like Cloud storage at all.

Hhhmmm. Might work then. Last time I used Slack, I wasn't thrilled with it. But, if they've improved it, that could be good.

Ok; it has likely been a year since I have posted on this forum. I am attempting to balance family time, writing, and time on various forums.

Re: Success!

I signed the contract and the editor said it was safe to share, so here we go: Mad Scientist Journal put out a call for classified ads and are planning to publish my submission in March 2018. It's a 180ish word fictional classified ad, so I'm not sure if that falls into flash or an even smaller cat...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 34

Well, the feedback I got from everybody convinced me even more it's a longer piece, so I'm definitely not making it in this quarter. I don't even know if when done it will still be within word count for this contest.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 34

Don't know if I'll make it in this quarter. I've submitted to my writer's group to get feedback, but I know I rushed the ending. In the end It might make into the next if I can keep it in the max word count. It seems to want to be at least a long novelette at it's shortest the more I think about it....

Still working on mine. The 450 exchanges were useful. Eep I still owe someone an annotated one, though they already have feedback.

Re: First Four-Fifty Critique Exchanges

I'm up to it. I have story originally started for this quarter before I had a dry spell after my Best Friend passed. I ended up cleaning up a submission that was rejected for an anthology for Q2 instead.

So, PM me the file and I'll see about PMing you mine.

Re: Questions: Scene and chapter-breaks

I use chapters in my longer Novelettes. 10,000 or more words. I don't on anything shorter, I just use the scene break #.

By the way, this type of post would go under "Writing: Craft, Talent, Technique."
