I'll volunteer to go first.

"Trapped" is just under 15,000 words. It's in the non-erotic category.

Wonderful! You may start a new thread. If you need help with the format, you can look here. Penny gives good instructions on how to structure your discussion thread.

I may submit one when I get it finished. It's only 2K words at present but I have no idea how long it will take to finish.

Don’t know if I ever told you, but you were the first person I “met” on Lit. You invited me into Molly’s thread and made me feel at home. I really appreciated that. You also prolly know more about the “doings” of our family than just about anybody else on Lit. That’s cuz you care and are appreciated for being you.--posthumous message from Safe_Bet. And I still care and I still love her. Rest in the Light, Suzy.

I've got a former Last Place (TM) winner I wouldn't mind throwing out there.

I tried to play a ridiculous idea completely dead straight. I'm curious to know if people think that can work or whether it's always doomed to failure.

Okay, since hydra's is already done, it'll be next in line. When Lynn's finishes, then hydra will be up.

VM, just post back in here when you are finished if you still want to offer yours for critique.

can you critique mine?

It is in the erotic couplings category and is approximately 2800 words long.

http://www.literotica.com/stories/sh....php?id=404069

PS how do I get the link to be underlined and the title of the story, instead of the long URL?

You can go after me if you want (unless VM's is up and ready).

I'm just waiting until the discussion on MistressLynn's has ended and then I'll put mine up. Probably tomorrow sometime. Mine might be a very short discussion along the lines of "Yes" and "next!".

I did know how to make the title link underlined at some point, but I've sadly forgotten. I think it's a tag thing - someone else will know.

Hope I wont get drummed out of here -

I am wanting to put up the first portion of my newest story.
Its not erotica - its a romance - but

If I am welcome - I will post only here... as its not ready to go up on the fences... Just the first part. (its about a hundred pages) the first part is about 20....

I will be gone until the evening of the second so if you can let me know today

but what I am really thinking is of posting the part I am having the most difficulty with. Damnit.

That depends on how active you are gonna be in the forum as far as participating in others critiques as well. I will put your request on hold until I get a response.

I'll put you in line behind hydra as long as VM doesn't come in and say he's done with his before that. So... it'll be at least a week before you'll be up.

Do we have your word that you will stick around to critique others' stories (at least a couple)? That's the point of this forum. We are being a bit more lenient of that for the moment so we can get more activity here, but I would like everyone who has a story critiqued to make an effort to participate. There are a couple of recent stories posted that you could read and give your opinions on.

Hi Crim,

I have a story I plan on submitting to Lit, (just waiting for one more bit of editorial feedback), and I'd like to put it the Story Critique Queue.

It's just under 10,000 words, so would it be better if I broke it up into 3000 word sections? Let me know what is best.

I have been participating in the discussion circle and intend to continue doing so.

Thanks,
Keroin

I can't promise they'll be good critiques, or that I'll stick to any kind of calendar, but sure, if this is posted I'll commit to weighing in on other pieces.

BTW, am I missing something obvious or are there not any icons for bold, italic, hyperlinks, etc.?

Yes, I've seen your critiques. Since Stan is committing to critique, I'm going to put him first since he requested before you did. You'll be in line after him.

Okay, I'll hold you to that. I'm going to give Christabelll's a bit more time. I will notify you when you can post yours.

The formatting for bold, italics, etc. is at the top of the posting box along with other formatting options.

Okay, Stan. You're up. Please read the sticky threads for instructions on how to post your story for critique.

Hi Crim,

Sorry to do this but I have to pull my story from the queue. It has been accepted for publication elsewhere (yes, real gig!) and so I won't be submitting it to Lit after all. Many apologies!

Cheers,
Keroin
