Hey guys! When I first posted the beginning of my story here I got several lovely comments right away but then didn't hear anything else in the past few weeks. Could you maybe solicit more members to comment on recently posted stories? I will try to read through some and make critiques in the next few days. This is a great site and a great opportunity and I would like to see it used more often.

Another suggestion - could someone who is internet-savvy seek out a bunch of writers sites that will put links on, and put this on as a good link for people who want mystery critiques?

Here's a problem that aggravates me...I try to cancel subscriptions to folders I don't care to wade through, and continue to have them appear when I Check Subscriptions, with no button to Cancel Subscription (because I already have, so, of course the only button available is Subscribe). This happens only with the new folders, like Mysterious Poems, And Add-Ons...all folders I don't care to read through every time. I just spent an hour wading through about 10 screens worth of one add-on story, only to be rewarded by a Mysterious Poem to wade through.

Can this be fixed?

I had the same problem, except I didn't cancel my subscriptions. If you are still subscribing to the folder "mysteries by Community Members" or even "Writing Mysteries", I think you will automatically get everything within that folder. Unfortunately, I think this is a software thing. I am thinking the best thing for you would just be not to subscribe, and instead just head to the writing mysteries section. (and only keep subscriptions active in the folders you have been communicating in or a folder with a story you have written).

BTW, how is your novel coming along?

Thanks, Dina

Why? What are you planning to do with them?

I think it would be great if we started our own little critique group. Any one game? Maybe meet once a week, exchange work, gain feedback and/or suggestions? I've been writing for over ten years and have had work published in Woman's World, Woman's Day, and several newspapers. I just completed my first suspense story THE DOLPHIN TRIANGLE (100,000 words). It placed as a semi finalist in the mystery/suspense chapter of RWA's Good Things Come In Threes contest.

I agree with the person saying that the Mysteries by Members section is somewhat neglected. I visit it regularly, and try to make commments one everyones story (the recent ones) cause i know what a let down it is when y0u see something you've worked hard on with no comments. I don't really know what i'm trying to say, nor do i have a really great idea. i'm just, i don't know. Rambling, i suppose.

"I can't do it all on my own, I'm no Superman" - Scrubs Theme

Hey guys!! I see this place doesn't get used much anymore...

Anyway...I was thinking of putting a story online, but will decide against it if I can post it here instead. The problem is, is it is going to wind up being a novel, and I wouldn't know where to put it!!

Help me?! Please?!!
