Im not sure if i've communicated what im actually asking here but if u understand then please help
I think you should go for it, I get my friends to read everything I do even if I know it is truely rubbish because then they can tell me thier opinions on it and what makes it bad and if they think something is good about it then that too. I think that that is the whole point of the site, to post your stuff and get comments back. If you want me to read ANYTHING i will, i don't mind I will tell you what makes it good and how I think you could improve it! bit the bullet and go for it!

Hey,

So, I'm new to YWO, and I have two questions...

I'm going to risk sounding newbish and ask this; I read the Great Newb Guide and everything, but was just wondering before I start critiquing, should I put the original piece in quote form and edit in there with a different coloured font or something, or quote and edit outside the quote box?

Also, how do I make an awesome sig?! Thanks!

Both ways of critiquing are fine, it's up to you how you want to do it. Summaries are usually done outside the quote-area though.

I think it's better if you create a thread in the Writing Q & A.

Of course, you should include more details about your story and whatnot.

Back again ^-^

Another question: Is it soooooo terrible if I want to edit a piece that's, say, two months old? It's not like I'm going back and editing old pieces all the time, just this one I saw by accident that's gotsuch potential, and I really want to edit it? Will I get in BIG trouble?! :0 OMG.

May the force be with you.

Well, we can't punish you for it, but if you want to critique a two-month old piece, you might want to check whether the author has left the site. There's no point in spending an hour or so on a critique that they're never going to read. Or, you could shoot the author a visitor message on their profile, and ask them whether they're still interested in getting critiques on that piece. It could be that they're currently revising it to make it an even better draft, and they would rather you critique the better draft. Or they've given up on writing altogether, except the occasional emo love poem.
