Being a Newbie to this group I was wondering if other writers post works on here for non-contest reasons?

Seeing as how peer review is great for feedback, do you regulars post other works for review and critiques? 

Or is it just for contest entries?? 

 Just  wondering as I finish up other stories, would love comments and insight to polish and improve.
Writing is easy, just open a vein and bleed out the words.

I think I asked something similar a while back. I know many writers have a blog where they post their entries and other writings ... they would have to post an invite link. There is a bit of paranoia about people ripping stuff off, so I don't see that happening. I have swapped features and stories privately with people here for comment, but I don't think I would do it openly.

I have written several feature screenplays ... (One of which I was told just today has a green light and funding to start pre prod) ... and a young adult fiction novel that in my vanity I've put up on Amazon as a 99 cent ebook! I don't know what value there would be in putting them up here. They are also commercial and confidential for the most part.

These stories and shorts are written on a level playing field ... With everyone having the same prompts ... So I think there can be a fair comparison and constructive criticism.

Thanks for the clarification. 

Yeah that all make sense, especially the invite link part. I guess not having everyone have access to it. but the ones you have built a rapport with. 

Congrats on the greenlight btw

*groan* The greenlight is not as green as it sounds ... this was a commissioned feature film adaptation of a series of tweenager girl's books ... so awful, I barely retained the title, character names and premise ... 5 major drafts over 5 years ... kind of a tweeny Spice Girls musical (does anyone remember the Spice Girls?  Showing my age). 

Now, the hard part ... working with an ace script editor I admire who is going to want to kill all of my babies. 

One happy note ... a well known actor who I had in mind when I wrote a central character has come on board as that character!  You see, screenwriters can direct and cast through big print and dialogue!

Please just keep this between you and me, Jak ...

Yes, I think it was 1998 ... I had 3 daughters by then ... two wanted Spice Girl dolls and one wanted a Telly Tubby ...

Perhaps... But my father never heard of Spice World..... and he is pretty sure he isn't missing anything by not hearing of it..

Well, I think because I started breeding late ... still have a 17 yo daughter at home ... and teach college freshmen ... I may be more in touch than your average Baby Boomer.
