Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers

Was thinking of submitting an excerpt from my current work-in-progress for feedback, comments and critiques.  Being new at this website I was wondering if there is a word limitation suggested for the excerpt?

Some where in the region of 500 - 1,500 words would be a good number.


Thanks for raising the question!

I'd keep it to no more than a page or two

I'd say more strongly 500 to 600 words. No more than that.  If it is posted longer than that it seems to bore readers who view but fail to comment or pass any opinion. That's unfair if a writer has gone through the bother of posting their gems for others to read.

Short and sweet might work best.
