Thanks.
Yes, this is the preferred way to do it, as most of us will be overwhelmed if you post a whole novel. When you post in the novel section, just make sure you include in your title something like "TITLE OF NOVEL - CHAPTER X"

Hi, I'm Lily. I'm new to this forum. I hope I can receive and share knowledge with you guys. I am an IB English student and I have no idea what I want to write about for my written task. The learning outcome is part 1, language in cultural context. Please help me come up with a topic to write.

Hello, Lily! Welcome to YWO!

If you want to introduce yourself properly, feel free to start a new thread here in the newbie zone!

My first suggestion is to brainstorm. Maybe in the new thread, you could tell us what sort of things you might be interested in? What sort of cultural contexts are you thinking about?

About the no critiques under 5 sentences or else it gets deleted rule, does this apply to replies toother critiques? like if someone thought something didn't make sense and I disagree and show them why I think the writer put it there, would that be deleted?

There's not really a reason for a post like that (i.e. a third party replying to part of a critique). It's helpful to the writer to see, from the first critique, that their meaning can be misinterpreted. If you want to comment on the original piece, you should do a proper crit.

With that said: if your post seems vital to the conversation about the original piece, it will probably stay up, because the mods have better things to do. If your post isn't vital, it may come down.

It would be a critique of the critique. In my humble opinion this doesn't make sense, because someone might as well have a desire to critique your critique of the critique, and in the end what we are gonna have here will be the debate room or something like that. Besides, why are you so sure that your interpretation is better and truer than that of a person that has made a previous critique?
On reading a critique a hasty thought often crossed my mind "Oh, what that guy is talking about? That doesn't make sense! He is wrong!"
But very often, on reading the statement more attentively I saw the point of the critique, and it was by no means wrong, I just wasn't able to make it out while reading the critique superciliously.

You think up some characters. You make them want certain things, maybe a job, maybe a lover, maybe revenge, or something else. Then, you want to make it difficult for them to achieve the things they want. If they're in love, maybe the person they're in love with loves someone else. If they want a job, maybe they're not yet qualified for it. Either they succeed or fail--it doesn't matter which, so long as it feels right to you. If you can accomplish that, you've written a story.

How do I delete my own post? I accidentally made two copies of the same poem, one of which has a typo in the title. How can I delete that post?
