Author Topic: Question about the 13 rule

 - posted            Edit/Delete Post 
I posted the 1st 13 of Ravencroft-rewrite on the 'novel' thread and got some very helpful input. The question is about another section of the story from further down in the MS.
I have some odd grammatical 'things' I could use help with. How do I post 13 more lines from the same story? Does Kathleen need to use her magic wand to 'dispel' the former post or do I just post the 13 in a new topic? Thanks

My impression is you can only post the first 13 lines of a story, or revisions of those first 13 lines, but not the subsequent 13 lines of the same story. I could be wrong about that though.

KDW did tell me you could post the first 13 of each chapter, though, so maybe it'd be okay. Hopefully she'll chime in on this question.

Since you're talking about a whole novel, and only 13 line snippets of a first draft that will likely change to some degree later on, I probably wouldn't worry about it.

Alternately, since you're worried about grammar, you could post the bits in Open Discussions with names and some info changed and make it a hypothetical discussion.

If you're asking for feedback on a book-length story, you can post 13 lines from each chapter, if you need to.

Since you say that you have a question regarding another section, 13 lines from that should be fine, DRaney.

Or you could post the whole thing on Critters, though they want you to post one chapter at a time.
