message 1: by Clare D' Lune (new)

Clare D' Lune Anyone have questions?


message 2: by Clare D' Lune (new)

Clare D' Lune Does everyone agree to the word limits? I can change them if people think they're too long...


message 3: by Seth (new)

Seth (ninjaaaaaofwritingbooks) No, the word limits are perfect. But I won't be doing much of this during November. Please don't delete me. :P I have NaNoWriMo to worry about.


message 4: by Clare D' Lune (new)

Clare D' Lune That's fine! : )

Do you think you'll have time to vote once in a while? If not, that's ok, as long as you'll be doing so in the future...


message 5: by Seth (new)

Seth (ninjaaaaaofwritingbooks) I am going to TRY to be on goodreads, but everyone keeps saying that its really hard when you are writing all the time. You doing nano this year?


message 6: by Seth (new)

Seth (ninjaaaaaofwritingbooks) It says in the "group description" that the two week ones are 2,000-6,000 words, but in the actual thing it says 3,000-6,000. Which one is the reality?


message 7: by Clare D' Lune (new)

Clare D' Lune Whoops, I forgot to change it... it's supposed 2000 - 6000 because i thought that'd work a litte better...


message 8: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin Please don't delete me in November...I'm going to be doing nanowrimo and not even touch goodreads!!

I probably won't be on either, I am running for class president... oh and how/when do you vote on stories? And what if my story is shorter than 2000 words? Like a seriously short story?


message 15: by Clare D' Lune (new)

Clare D' Lune Hi Olivia, welcome to the group!
Saturday afternoon to Sunday afternoon we vote (I will put up the poll for it each week) but we're not doing it this sunday... next we will...
Thats alright if it's less than 2000 words... 75 words and less go in the Daily Short Short Story, 500 words to 2,000 words go into the weekly contest, and 2,000 to 6,000 words go into the 2 week contest... please try to write your story according to the Topic. (if you look on the day/week/2 week posts, there are instructions about following the Topic)

Does that help? If you want to know anything else, feel free to ask! : )

Clare

P.S. Good luck with the Class Prez thing! : D

Christy Stewart (christyleighstewart) Would it be better if I were back?


message 41: by Arthur, Live a little Give a lot (new)

Arthur | 554 comments Mod
Maybe so. What if others wanted to also write something? I may even post a contest subject. It's a good idea the same. I haven't written anything since the last time I submitted to one of the Goodreads contests.
Oh, and, I'm frightfully sorry Christy I didn't see your post until now. I'd planned a heavy weekend and hadn't checked to see really if there had been any changes to all the groups I'm member of until this moment. Come back and write one of your charming styled stories, it would be appreciated.
