1. Re: Funny Recommendations (Giving & Looking For)

      Funny books are my favorite things. Adventures of Goldthirst Company is very funny, and is a direct fantasy-adventure parody too. Soulless (Apparently) has got a lot of good jokes too. I also (...)

    2. Re: When your story doesn't really fit in a RR niche...

      Royal Road, due to its submissions process, has an astronomically smaller number of stories than Wattpad or most other web fiction sites without one. When you have a story with zero ratings I believe it (...)

    3. Re: Writing a fiction about COVID-19

      I think we should wait a couple years before writing about this sort of thing.

    4. Re: The Importance Of Leaving Reviews

      I agree with Lillith and the OP.  I don't want, and try not to write, reviews that critique or try to "give feedback." I think there is a time and a place for reviews that try to help the author improve, (...)

    5. Re: When your story doesn't really fit in a RR niche...

      I've posted one fantasy and am closing in on finishing the posting of a SF novella. Both written to the same standards, by the same author, in the same POV. While I am quite satisfied with the initial (...)

    6. Re: Thedude3445's Weekly TheReviews3445 Thread (No Swaps, Don't Stop)

      The one I'm soliciting for in the other thread. Storm in the Fall Of course a human rating would be nice too. You can throw it up on IHDB. The international human database. OK, I'll through (...)

    7. Re: Thedude3445's Weekly TheReviews3445 Thread (No Swaps, Don't Stop)

      Do you mind adding me to your list? No hurry. It'll be a hot minute before I get to your fiction, I think you're number 5 or 6 on my list? What story do you want me to add? Or do you want me to add (...)

    8. Re: Thedude3445's Weekly TheReviews3445 Thread (No Swaps, Don't Stop)

      Heyo! I'd really love it if you gave my story a review. It's coming to the end of the first volume soon but not a lot of people have seen it since I only post chapters once a week right now :/ If you're (...)

    9. Re: Thedude3445's Weekly TheReviews3445 Thread (No Swaps, Don't Stop)

      My first review for Locking Horns, Breaking Teeth is up.

    10. Re: Love, Fantasies, and Lust. Society or Ingrained since childhood?

      Smut fantasies correlate poorly with real-world attraction. Readers on Royal Road surely know this already. Good smut fantasies doesn't need correlation to realism, and some of them can be privately (...)

    11. Re: Showing vs. Telling

      This is a very nice article. In regards to filter words I'd like to note that it's very easy in first person to get too close POV-wise and add a lot of those unnecessary words. Ex. "I hear the wolf (...)

    12. Re: Review Queue [wordsinaline]

      If you would someday read my story ATL: Stories from the Retrofuture, I'd be as pleased as punch. Anytime in the near or far future is fine.

    13. Re: Thedude3445's Guide to Writing Cute Romance

      I updated the formatting a little bit for the forum version to make it a little bit more readable, though it's still lacking compared to the blog version. I'm also looking to add stuff to the "Extra Notes" (...)

    14. Re: Tips for writers just starting off

      Please read a lot. Read a lot OUTSIDE of Royal Road and even outside of web fiction in general. (Project Gutenberg's got a LOT of free material to peruse.) Read many different genres. Read for entertainment (...)

    15. Re: Thedude3445's Weekly TheReviews3445 Thread (No Swaps, Don't Stop)

      Would you care to read about my adorable lizards in say... 20 days? If not, no worries : ) I would care to do so. Since you have reviewed two of my stories already, I'm gonna retroactively put (...)

    16. Re: Help. I'm at a wall (in terms of finding new books to read).

      Read the Cradle Series by Will Wight if you're looking for non-web fiction. If you want a really long book you can stick with for a while Adventures of Goldthirst Company has some progression in it, (...)

    17. Re: looking for something like solo leveling

      I haven't read it yet but I believe The Oscillation is about a system taking over the modern world, but society doesn't crumble.

    18. Re: Are you affected?

      Hi, I'd like to remind the users to stay away from political and religious discussions on this topic, as those can quickly get out of hand. Discussing the effects of COVID-19 on your personal or professional (...)

    19. Re: Are you affected?

      There were 30,000 new cases confirmed yesterday, bringing the total to above 300,000 and continuing the exponential increase in both cases and deaths. Swine slu in 2009 infected between 700 million (...)
