You're good to go, Robert.

Four people for Monday so far then--Will, Hubay, Robert and some guy I've never heard of. :P

Can I submit a short story of mine? My novel is still in first draft, and I don't want to receive critique for it until I'm finished, but meanwhile I'd like to show a short story I've written some time ago.  :P

Amnonian: Absolutely you can submit short stories. Might want to label it as such in your email, because I think people have a tendency to assume that people are sending out novel chapters and it's caused a little confusion in the past.

That's five, then. Busy week! But room for one more at least.

My next chapter is ready - it was ready a few weeks ago, but my primary alpha reader decided to take a few weeks off, and I wanted her input, since it's an important chapter.

If 4500 more words to read this week is OK with everyone, I'll post tomorrow.

I haven't received any submissions yet.  Is my name not on the list?

Hmm. Not sure why you didn't get any. Hopefully Silk/Chaos can provide an answer.

On a different note, I was able to receive your submission, but it was a docx file, and I don't have software that can read those currently.

I have a couple of quick submission related questions.

First, I'd like to submit something this coming Monday. My combined prologue and first chapter comes out to 5,273 words. I'd like to submit them together, though that's slightly over the "standard" word amount. If I just submited the prologue it would be less than half that length. Is everyone ok if I submit them together?

Second, are content tags supposed to be for the work as a whole or just what's being submited now? Because what I'll be sending this Monday has no violence or language whatsoever, but there definitely will be some notable violence later in the story, and possibly some swearing as well, though most of that will probably be in the style of "fantasy swearing."

Thanks in advance.

I assumed it was just the particular submission.  That is what I did, last time, anyway.

I'm back from vacation now -- and about ready to start relaxing after all the prep/travel/catch-up work is done.  I have another chapter to submit this Monday, assuming everyone's eyes have recovered by then.

Yes, just for the particular submission. :)

And yes, go ahead and submit the whole thing, Matthew--we're pretty loose about that 4k word limit.

I'll put Matthew and Caleb down for Monday.

I (finally) finished chapter nine and I'll have it ready for Monday.
I will get around to giving feedback to my fellow Reading Excuses members. As soon as I can.

"Loose" is putting it lightly :P

I will submit Chapter Two of Rebirth on Monday.

That's five so far. Room for one or two more, anyway.

Robert: I've just tried re-adding you. Let me know if it still doesn't work.
