    1. Re: Read Later vs. Favorite?

      My 2p: Read Later = "This person needs/wants feedback" Follow = "I want to read this story" Favourite = "I want to read this story again" Or, if you prefer, work, pleasure and study in that order.


    2. Re: Review removed from my fiction?

      I only had two reviews on my fiction, so I obviously treasured them both (they were both positive and encouraging, with constructive criticism that I took to heart). I noticed this morning that one (...)


    3. Re: Hitting trending has actually been a curse

      I started writing my book for two reasons: 1) I wanted to get better at telling stories. 2) I have been going through a lot of stress at work and writing helped me slip into another world for an (...)


    4. Re: Is it possible to predict the success of a book?

      A story that is interesting for a certain audience and good marketing. I think there are examples that prove that only the second one of those is truly necessary. Do you consider marketing (...)


    5. Re: Is the Marxist culture creeping into rrl?

      if I read a novel that victimize men because they're only 70% of the Google workforce... I'd give that a 0.5 star rating too That seems like an odd reason for a 0.5 rating. If the characters (...)


    6. Re: CHICKEN IS NUMBER 1

      Is that not inevitable for a new, ongoing fiction which will attract return views every day, compared to an older, completed fiction? Still, I really am enjoying Chicken. It's really a sweet bit of (...)


    7. Re: Is it possible to predict the success of a book?

      A story that is interesting for a certain audience and good marketing. I think there are examples that prove that only the second one of those is truly necessary.


    8. Re: What program do you use to write?

      Google Docs, but for publishing my non-fiction it all goes into Affinity Publisher for layout and formatting.  I used to use Adobe InDesign, but I'm just about to cancel that subscription.  Affinity is (...)


    9. Re: Webnovels

      I think a huge benefit of web novels is overlooked here: Yes, your readers may occasionally angrily (or, indeed, gently or dispassionately) point out plot holes or continuity errors. But, unlike (...)


    10. Re: Geniuses in stories

      The problem here doesn't lie in the question of whether an atypically intelligent or talented individual can or cannot also be "normal" (duh, of course they can). It lies in this: For context, (...)


    11. Re: What the h*ck is Xianshu?

      I, too, was ignorant of these terms when I got here.  Hang around long enough, though, and it'll all become clear. Failing that, Google is your friend.


    12. Re: Anyone needs info on modern witchcraft practice?

      -Worshiping -Spiritualism  -Naturalism So that would be: Communing with gods Communing with the dead Communing with the Earth ?


    13. Re: Broken record topic- Best time to post a story

      Ignore views and do what suits you.  I upload on Friday evenings because I usually write over the weekend, and edit during the week between work.  That suits me and helps me meet my targets. Don't worry (...)


    14. Re: What do you think of School Life novels?

      I have a vague plan for a High School WuXia, so I think they're cool.


    15. Re: What are your writing goals?

      My goal is to update with one chapter per week and to sustain a buffer of at least five chapters until the book is finished.  I'm currently at 6.5 chapters in my buffer, so I'm doing pretty well. I've (...)


    16. Re: Is the Marxist culture creeping into rrl?

      Just for a second, though, wouldn't it be awesome if Marxism actually was creeping into RR? Sneaky little Marxists, sneaking in with fictions about the noble worker overthrowing the capitalist bourgeoisie (...)


    17. Re: Hard Magic or Soft Magic Systems?

      Narrativium: the only building block of magic that matters.


    18. Re: How do I improve my prose style?

      There ain't nothing wrong with your prose, OP.  Stop faffing around and get writing.


    19. Re: Grammar books for fiction writers?

      Eats, Shoot & Leaves by Lynne Truss It's short, very funny, takes a mostly-permissive approach (which is important to professional writers) and doesn't let itself get bogged down in the technical.


    20. Re: How does one write a sports match?

      Well, first of all, thanks for linking to the Netherball vid.  That was a fun watch! Second, what a great exercise to watch a long-ish scene full of action and tense moments and practical zero dialogue (...)
