Anything more frightening or exciting?
« on: December 18, 2018, 10:43:26 PM »
Is there anything more exciting and just as equally frightening than taking several pages and saying, "This just doesn't work!" and deleting it?

I'm always scared to hit that "DELETE" button, but I'm not sure why. I always end up making it better.


No real point to the post, I guess.   Just the joys of editing.

I wanted to post more of my writing but wasn't sure on how much is too much.

Landmersm, I think it's a 2000 word  post limit per post.... I'll find the MWC  rule and post it for you.
I'm interested in reading your work.  jt

Update:
Maximum Word Count: 2,000
Subject Line (no ALL CAPS): Title or genre, word count, content warning
Formatting: Add an empty/blank line between paragraphs

Oh, I meant "too much" from a standpoint of too often.

I don't believe there's 'too often"... as long as the post is under 2000 words.  You and others can comment  without limit....if I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will let us both know.   I have seen at least one writer post 4  separate[2000 word] posts on the same story, one after another.       jt
