Thanks to everyone who's posted their entry challenge story here and who's responded so far. As I hope you can see from the comments already posted, this isn't such a scary thing to do! It is, though, quite a brave thing to post your own work and invite comments. For me, the important things to remember are that a) we're all writers (if you write, you're a writer - it is not some kind of weird qualification which you have to gain or secretive club that you have to join) and b) constructive responses should be 'generously rigorous' (or perhaps 'rigorously generous' - I can never make up my mind). And if you're the writer whose story is being commented on, don't forget that what people are critiquing is your story - not you personally!
