My next chapter is also ready, if there's still time to get in for Monday.

I was wondering if I could maybe submit the piece I am working on at the moment? It is not finished and needs a little work.

Will, Guen, you're on--but that's seven already, so I'd better cap it there. List's full 'til next week.

Edit: I'm not sure whether this will be too many people are not, so let me know what you guys think. If people are having a hard time keeping up, or not getting enough feedback, or whatever, I might cap it at five or six in the future.

Personally, it was easier for me to keep up when there were only three or four.  That may only be an artifact of my last two weeks, or it may be due to the way I review them and not a problem for other people.  That said, I would encourage a slightly smaller limit, even if it means I can't get mine reviewed as often as I might like.

Five may be a good number.

Robert, I'm going to have to ask you to wait until next week--we have seven people submitting and I suspect that this will already be too many.

Caleb: Noted, thanks. I'll see what other people think after this week. And remember, if you're having trouble you don't necessarily have to critique everything that comes through each week, or do it right away.

Mostly I want to make sure that we keep things small enough that everybody gets some feedback.

I'm glad we're getting so much traffic right now. I think I'm going to reserve a spot for a week from tomorrow.

I certainly haven't been getting to things right away.

I know I don't need to hit everything.  Still, looking at and critiquing other people's stories is kind of like weight-lifting for that part of my brain.  I'm working on the belief that practicing at critiques will allow me to do it better, probably more easily, and hopefully to my own work as well as other people's.  For now, I'm stretching myself by looking at all of the submissions and evaluating them, at least a little.  Then once I've read it and have some ideas for feedback, it would be a shame not to share it.

That said, I'll probably pare down my part at some point in the future, either in numbers or in depth.  Hopefully I'll learn to get right to the biggest items I'd like to say, instead of being longwinded.

Hmm.  Which is where this post is headed...

I'm glad we're getting so much traffic right now.

I agree with this also.  Having too much traffic is a wonderful problem to have.

I'll skip submitting this next week. I'm in no hurry, so may as well let others submit :P

I really like how many submissions we are getting, too.

Didn't see your reply Silk and posted.  I will send a notice to disregard or for those seeing this just disregard that chapter.

I probably won't be able to submit further work on my book this coming monday. I've been away from home doing stuff with family most of the week so far and expect that to continue till sunday, so I haven't gotten much writing done. (So don't expect much in the way of critiques from me this week either, though I'll at least read what was sent out)

Anyways, I do have a short story I've already written that I'd be interested in submitting, if there is a spot for me.

If there are still openings I'd like to submit too.
