If you are a writer of IR fiction, feel free to post your stories. Here are a few guidelines:

1.Please mark your story for content. For example: if it contains very descriptive, erotic sex, please note that, violence, offensive language, very clearly at the top of the story. Create a separate thread for each story. If you will post more than one story, create a folder and name it: "Danielle's Stories", for example.

2. If you want feedback, please post a statement to that effect. You reserve the right to delete any comments that you find offensive and non-constructive. If you feel that has occurred, please bring it to the attention of one of the moderators. That conduct is not allowed on this group.

3. If you are a published author, post your story under the following folder: Published Author, Upcoming Book Excerpts, creating a new thread for your story.

There will be a folder for Clean stories (G-PG-13) and Explicit stories (Above PG-13). If your story has explicit content, it should go in the Above PG-13 folder. Keep in mind that minors are able to use Goodreads, and this is a public group. As stated above, please mark your story clearly for content.

So I have been thinking about writing a lot lately. And I thought maybe I should start with a short story. How many words are in a short story usually? Or is there a wide range?

On Wikipedia, they say that a short story is defined as longer than 1,000 words and shorter than 20,0000 words. Less than 1,000 words is considered flash fiction.

I'm not a short story writer.

I'm trying to get better at writing short stories, because I enjoy that format. But I'm more of a novel-length writer, myself.

well a novel is the ultimate goal, but I think I just may try to tackle a short story first and then move on from there.

All novels start with the first words. You can do it, Bekah!

Stacy-Deanne Stacy-Deanne (wwwgoodreadscomstacydeanne) I'll post an excerpt when I can. It'll be awhile because the final version is still being worked on by the pub. By January we should be ready to send out review copies so I should have samples and excerpts for "Giving up the Ghost" to share then.

Best Wishes!

Randy Smith (Noirree) | 29 comments Ok for finally clarification, am I suppose to post the story in this box or someplace else?

Start a thread for your story in this folder, Randy.

Lilith Darville (lilithdarville) | 21 comments Is a thread the same as a comment? Please forgive the newbie questions while I learn the lingo!

Hi Lilith that's a good question. No, a thread is not the same as a comment, although a person has to use a comment box, when they start a new thread. When a person wants to start a new thread, they have to click on new and their message will be number 1. All other messages under that thread will be comments. Your message 13 is a comment. Danielle's message 1 is the thread.
