I don't know of any short story sites of the top of my head, so...
"Creative Corner Share your short stories, poems, collaborative works, original artwork and more."
Share it here, I'm sure people won't mind, given the above description.
The 5 active members is all you need if the feedback they give is good.
Granted, it might depend on the sort of feedback you are looking for as well.
As such, make it easy to give feedback, by stating what you want specifically (ie, grammar, punctuation, pacing, etc), otherwise you'll end up with more general advice (in my opinion). There really is a lot to writing, and trying to go in depth for all of it will take forever without generalising a lot.
Anyway, still put it up since if the story is good you might get a commendation, totally worth it right?
Way more than five active members, unless you're saying right at this very moment.
See, people here can't block you, they can only disable pms...
Tho yeah, idk, maybe they misunderstood your feedback and took it as an attack.
I find it a bit strange that they would respond only to block you right after it. Seems inefficient to me, if you're going to block someone, spending time on a reply beforehand seems like a waste.
Anyway, in defence of that site, one bad experience shouldn't make you regret joining it, there might be people there who would really appreciate good feedback and you just stumbled upon someone who is a bit different.
Which site was this?
cog I'd suspect. ha ha.
I was thinking that it might be Figment since there are a lot of emotional "authors" over there writing short stories, but I think they closed down and transitioned into Underlined already, which most of the Figgits were crying about.
I've seen other writers ask that question. If there's a site out there where you can post stories knowing you definitely will receive meaningful responses, I have yet to find it. That's one of the thing that impressed me with this site. If you post a storygame here, you will hear people's unvarnished opinions of it.
Maybe if we get enough people posting short stories in the forums here, we can get a short story section coded with proper ratings/comments.
However, nothing is stopping us from writing a completely linear story here with the editors we already have and simply calling it a Short Story/Novella/etc so people know there won't be choices.
Unless of course that irritates people. Technically that won't stop us unless we care what people think, but it's a potential option.
Sorry, it's late, I'm rambling.
True, it's not a short story site. But if people are used to the community, and enjoy it, then the thought crossed my mind. Saw no harm in sharing it.
Well, I have been back only a few months now, so I missed that discussion. But if it's been discussed before, I'll accept that decision. I wasn't about to make a huge push for it. Though I do kind of like the idea of taking another place over by storm before it has a lot of people...I don't think there's enough of us for that though, alas.
Scribophile, last I checked, allowed for some pretty in depth critique. My problem is more the system of when you can post and how much it 'costs' to post. Sure, I suppose I shouldn't whine about having to read other people's stories to post my own. After all, I want people to read my stuff. But sometimes I'm just more motivated to write than read, and I want to do that. Also, the etiquette is that you should thank everyone for their reviews, and I always felt guilty when I got behind on those things.
It's not too bad. I don't mine a little 'give and take' economics, but the costs/rewards sometimes felt a little skewed. It does have the ability to make groups and stuff, so you can find a nest of like minded people to share things with.
