I went to check my feedback for last week and there was none. It stated that I had not marked my entries. But I can see the entries with my marks and comments dated last Saturday. There is no way to know if they were delivered, but I notice one of 3 doesn't come up. Would that mean the other two did not go? I'd like the people to get their feedback, especially as I went to the trouble of doing the work.

Thanks Octopoda. No idea either. I only recently started getting interested in Internet writing resources. Even since I joined here I have researched more and it is amazing what's out there. Look at '31 writing competitions for 2018' for example.

Well done Jocasta. Yep, think the party is over. Checked up on company register like you were saying. Company will be fully dissolved on January 18th. Commiserations to those involved. I'm sure you started out with good intentions.

Hi Jacosta, I'm new too. However I can say there have been no results posted for the past seven weeks, coincidently the week of my first entry. I have received the feedback each week from peers (except sometimes I might not get 3 reviews), and I have fulfilled my end by reviewing 3 pieces each week. Otherwise it seems a bit of a ghost town with little interaction between writers.

Hi Tauren, First re your note on marks. I didn't realise there were 'proper' judges. I thought we, the writers were as good as it gets. Yes, I've only started the critique business but I can see already how it helps writing too.
Now re my take on the cliche: All great cliches came from writing or creative minds. It is your job (and mine) as writers to come up with the next cliche. Besides it's head wrecking fun trying to come up with another way of saying something, or turning a cliche on its head. Yes, I agree also, it could be a defining characteristic of a character to use cliches, and tell things about them. I had a character in a play and his amusing idiosyncrasy was malapropisms, which I love making up or hearing said by people without realising. For one example my character said 'A bird in the hand is worth two on one wing'. I know I'm not talking about cliches; just making point about being creative.
PS: I actually did advise somebody in the last critiques not to use cliches! Don't think it was you because I had nothing to say 'suddenly'.

I got an email for a prompt 'THe ...Super...Moon' and the site prompt says 'Limits of reproduction'. Are we ahead or behind!

Hi, Seeking Wolf. I'm a newbie too.I was hoping you'd get an answer to your 2 posts because I had the same questions. Looking back through comments I notice it seems to be a very quiet site for posting such feedback.
