Hi dear ABCers, I have just (after much dithering) posted my first prose submission "Ursa Major". Oldpesky was the first on to it and posted some very positive comments (thanks Peskmeister). OP enquired as to why I had only posted three short chapters. I explained that this is how I have the story arranged in its final format and that I had used up my 'three a day' allocation and therefore couldn't post any more.
I reflected on OP's observation and on balance thought 'sod it' I'll post the whole thing and be damned - but conscious of the length. The story is a little over eight thousand words (about fifty min's of reading for me and I'm a slow reader).
I recall Archiemacjoyce's "The end of my youth" which is an epic poem arranged into sonnets is also about the same length as "Ursa Major" and it was well read and well commented on (rightly so given its quality). Do you think that I have made the right decision in posting the whole thing or should I as jolono has sagely advised, split the story up into three sections?
Your opinions and advice would be much appreciated.
P.S please do not read this as a tout for 'reads', it is certainly not meant to be one.
