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?!!

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

Hi Spirit,

If your story is a mystery, you can post it in Mysteries by Members, provided it is more like a short story rather than a novel. That is because we do have some space restraints in place.

I have found the best way to do that is to add a discussion and name it the title of your story. If you like you can put a description of your story in the box provided there. Then you can start your story as post number one and continue it from there.

I am going ahead and posting it on my own pages, I am posting a discussion linking to it in short mysteries. I hope this arrangement is ok with you Fran!!
