I think this discussion is clarifying things. We want the monthly/bi-monthly/whatever frequency competition to be somewhere where people can post unfinished/half-finished/incomplete/never going to be finished/trying-things-out bits of writing as well as more finished and considered things. As such the tone of comments should be positive. If a writer wants a critique they should start a separate thread. Are we happy for people to ask specific questions about their entries within the framework of the competition?
Have I got this right?
