chimneyswift, hello! Yes, you can. The room is relatively quiet, so I asked if the rule could be set aside for that section. That would change if members were regularly posting for critique but never giving critique on the work of other members, but the Flash Fiction forum members are great and that hasn't happened. However, you are strongly encouraged to read the critiques that others post, and especially to read the stickied threads in the Share Your Work section, so that you are prepared for the experience of what both giving and receiving critique can be like.
