About Me

  1. I use Libre.Office for my stories, and they are automatically put in an odt file (I can also make it into a PDF, if desired). However, this website only lets me put files in png, gif, jpg, or jpeg. Does anybody know how to turn an odt into one of those on Libre.Office? It would really help me out so that I wouldn't have to keep typing it out every time I want to post something for critique from Libre. Thanks.
  2. Do you offer poetry or other contests? Thanks.
  3. Hi, I'm going to relay my question the best way I can, so here it goes: I've had this problem before, so some of you may remember it. Whenever I try to edit posts in the Critiquing Forum, this is the message I get every time now: ! Sorry there is a problem Please note that according to the Critique & Feedback Forum rules, you must leave critiques for others before requesting feedback for your own work, You may view the rules by clicking or tapping here. If you have any questions, please start a new topic in the Support Forum. Error Code: Critiques Forum/1 So that being said, why do I keep getting these messages every time I try to edit? Is it because I haven't critiqued someone else's work? 😕
  4. I'm curious about the "about me" part of the profile. I wrote a short blurb, thinking others might want to know more about me. Just recently, I thought I would look up other people's profiles, but the about me portion is not visible. I'm not real tech-y, so maybe I'm missing something.
  5. I think this is a site-related question. If not, I apologize for the confusion. So I'm wanting to better organize my topics (in the group I formed a while back). A group that's been renamed a couple of times (and may be again, but hopefully not). The Writers Melting Pot is what I've been calling it more recently. I started making topics almost like a crazy person, but they're all messed up. HOW can I organize them? What if I want to move on conversation into another topic so I can delete the first? Does any of this make sense?
  6. If I wanted to share a post from my personal website, that was strictly about writing, and not selling anything, would it be ok, to share in the writing forums? Here is an example.
  7. I recently posted a new poem, "The Master Piece", in the Critiquing Room. I've been several times to revise the poem, but to no avail! Are there some revisions going on in the website that would help me understand why this is happening?
  8. I don't understand why threads in this community are archived. It's true, some of them might become irrelevant due to passage of time, but many of them are independent of or unaffected by time. If someone stumbles across this community by searching something writing-related online, and wants to reply to an old thread relevant to his/her interests, he/she cannot do so, therefore he/she concludes that signing up an account was a waste of his/her time. Something to think about. 😅
  9. Hello, Peace be with all. Why did my post When the monster came disappear? I had two replies yesterday, one of those replies suggested that it be moved to the critque area. I found that a little off. Because when u write for therapuetic measures, and u have been through the absolute terrible and still going through it u don't need people critiquing u. It was put in the general section. Writing to me is also about writing for clarity and to clarify what I am living as well. I don't expect people to read it, nor do I expect ever to be a published writet. But I do appreciate my gift of writing that I can still have a voice and I can still have freedom to write what I need to. For most of my time here I am going to be the audience. GW
  10. I started a critique and wrote a paragraph or two, then I got a notification, and silly me, clicked on it and now my critique is gone. Is there a way to save a critique and come back to it to critique it? It usually takes me over half an hour to do critiques. I don't want to spend all that time on something and then lose it. Also, I do my critiques on my Kindle. I don't have a smart phone. Also, I still can't access the critique forum rules.
  11. Where do I put my author bio in my profile?
  12. Hello support, I wrote a reply to someones writing. However they took offence at it, and wrote to me in a way that is not ok. And I responded back to them, trying to get them to focus back on their post and writing and addressing what I have written. Because it went off topic. I don't want to discuss it, nor do I want to report this persons reply because had I not written on their post in the first place, they would not have written to me, and the whole situation would not have happened. I also saw my part in the provocation of this writer towards me, which means I saw the problems I had because of not writing in a direct, concise manner. And misunderstanding resulted. But I did see the problems writer and reader do have. I also see the problems people are having with communication. So in the end it will end up being valuable because a solutions will come. But for now If I can get it corrected, I would be grateful. GW
  13. There was a time in my life when i thought all hope was gone. I am certain the Lord softened my heart and when he did that, I became open to at least the possibility of hope. I found it in a movie. The more I try to write as a story teller, and not just telling something, the more I don't like spoilers. Forgive me if I'm vague. Or maybe I'm just being coy. In the movie, the main character was also in a 'all hope is lost' situation. He found hope, and with his God given talent, found a way out. I didn't see my way out, but I thought maybe if I just try to hang in there, that might be enough. The character in that movie, his story gave the the inspiration I needed to hold on to hope. I can honestly say, a movie saved my life. In a later movie, he died. Even though he wasn't ever a real person, he really was my hero. What else could you call someone who saved your life? And now my hero is dead. My mind knows he saved everything, so hanging in there was a great thing, but all my heart can feel is that he survived for nothing because he just died anyway. I really don't know how to handle this.
  14. Hello, When can I access the section for Critiques? I'm not sure how to become "established" and I still get the message.... Sorry, there is a problem We're sorry, the topic or section you are trying to access is unavailable at this time due to one of the reasons below. 1) You are a guest or new member. In order to protect the work of our members, the critique forum is only available to established users. 2) You are attempting to access an archived post. If you believe you have received this message in error, please let us know in the Support Forum.
  15. I've got a story I wrote, just over 6000 words long, and I'm not sure what to do with it. This is my first serious attempt at writing something, and I would like some feedback. Are these forums the right place?
  16. I was wondering, If I placed a short story (say 1,000 words) in the critique section, could I attach a small blurb to the story in the same critique, or should I start a second thread for this? Assuming it all stays within the word limit or the critique section.
  17. so I'm not sure how beta reading works... if someone is interested in beta reading my book, what's the protocol for getting that book to them usually?
  18. If I have a fully written book that potentially needs proof editing and extra pairs of eyes, would it be best to put in a job request for beta readers or enter it chapter by chapter into the critique section?
  19. I know for sure that I'm a member and I am signed in right now. I went to the critique forum to read a few stories, and got an error message like this: Error code: 2F173/H What is wrong? Whatever is happening, I hope it will work better next time. Thanks for making this site so fun to spend time in.
  20. Why are threads in a category with new posts no longer at the top of the list?
  21. Much to my surprise, I got blocked from commenting on a post from early November! Thank you! Hitting the "Next Uread Post" button can take me back in time, but a timely comment is better than bleating a red hearse.
