As promised, this week we discuss the flip side of last week's post, positive feedback about your writing. What are some memorable compliments you have received? How was it helpful? When is a compliment less helpful, though still no doubt appreciated? How do you give positive feedback? What effect does positive feedback have on you? Feel free to discuss these or related subjects in the comments.

This is not your regularly scheduled public post, but I decided to post calls for submissions that recently came to my attention in case it's useful for anyone, and to make it public because it may be useful for our non-member commenters as well. Members, if you'd like to discuss these submissions privately with others feel free to start a new thread locked to members. Also let me know if these kinds of posts are helpful, because if so I'll try to do them more regularly.

Tor.com is seeking science fiction/fantasy novels to publish

For this month only Tor.com is reviewing manuscripts of 20K-40K words (they keep switching between "novella" and "novel" so it's a little confusing), including from new authors. They are accepting manuscripts from the four categories of time travel, space opera, near-future thriller, and cyberpunk, though they may switch up in the future. Deadline is June 30, so this is mainly applicable for those who have complete or near-complete manuscripts unless you write very, very fast.

New On the Premises short story contest

On the Premises, the short story contest zine that periodically publishes stories of 1K-5K words based on prompts I've been rejected twice maybe third time's the charm?, is running a new contest with the prompt "Darkness." If you can use the concept of darkness meaningfully and originally in a short story, go for it! Deadline is September 2.
