    1. Re: I want a book. Possibly yours.

      I have a preference for dark fantasy, but I’ll read almost anything. I don't know if a story about Lucifer's fall from grace and transformation into the devil counts, but hey, if that sounds like (...)


    2. Re: Anyone looking to swap?

      I'm down for the 8 chapter story you have, might do the other one if you're only looking for a review after 10 chapters. As for my stuff, see the sig. Right now, only The Fall has been completed and I (...)


    3. Re: How would your MC try to negotiate with you?

      I have considered making like a side series where the characters interact with me IRL and even made a couple of drafts, but I haven't pulled the trigger on that yet. lol I have considered doing (...)


    4. Re: Recommend me your story!

      I prefer high fantasy. But any stories will do as long as they're wholesome. In short, just blast this topic with whatever story you think is good (including your own!) and I will go through it when (...)


    5. Re: You can make almost any plot premise work with masterful execution

      You might be able to talk about the history of bikes in a fantasy world, but can you make a saga out of it spanning ten thousand pages? Probably not. Does it need to be an epic saga though? Even (...)


    6. Re: To Be Or Not To Be speech with modern wording.

      I disagree with him, it's such a doomer take, "Everybody wants to kill themselves, but they're cowards and afraid of what lies beyond death!", it's not even close to truth lol Yes, it is a very (...)


    7. Re: Cover Art Crisis

      Record of Lundeir's cover is my own art. Not bad!


    8. Re: To Be Or Not To Be speech with modern wording.

      I had thought it meant whether to fulfill his duties as prince or whether to "give up" his status as prince. That neither were particularly desirable.  lol Not even close to the original meaning. (...)


    9. Re: January Thread - Promote your Story

    10. Character Motivations Check List

      This is a checklist I made to help ground my characters in real life motivations. While these are pretty universal, it doesn't mean that the characters should have all of their psychology explained to (...)


    11. How would your MC try to negotiate with you?

      Specifically, how would they try to get you, the author, to give them the life they want versus the one you give them? Free advertisement and writing practice! lol As for Henry from My Over Powered (...)


    12. Re: Is there a way to split up larger chapters?

      Also bear in mind though what kind of audience you are going for. For some people "small and digestable" is what can fit on your computer screen and nothing more, while for others, it would be 5 to 10 (...)


    13. Re: To Be Or Not To Be speech with modern wording.

      I don't know why but it feels a bit odd to see this in modern writing. It's very interesting though to see how much the English language has changed since Hamlet's release in the 17th century. Well, (...)


    14. Re: To Be Or Not To Be speech with modern wording.

      Huh.  Never knew it was about suicide.  This is exactly why I did this. To help give people the full impact of what Hamlet is saying here. Most people I have done this with in real life give me (...)


    15. Re: You can make almost any plot premise work with masterful execution

      Eh I have to disagree with the One Punch Man thing. As someone said, either it delivers or does not. Which it did not, wasn’t funny, just a really poor attempt at a parody. While I agree they had potentially (...)


    16. To Be Or Not To Be speech with modern wording.

      I didn't make it rhyme or anything, but I thought it would be fun to take the famous To Be Or Not To Be speech and update the language into more modern wording. So without further ado, enjoy! To kill (...)


    17. Re: Giving Feedback/Reviews

      If you enjoy Paradise Lost or like the anime Konosuba, then please feel free to review both of the works I have linked in my signature.


    18. Re: The Three Types of Villains

      This website is very informative (and addictive so open it at your own responsibility) https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Villains Ah yes, the beauty of TvTropes.org. lol


    19. Re: Just managed to hit 50k words before the end of last year.

      Didn't make the Writathon cut, but I managed it before the year's end. Happy New Year everyone! grats!


    20. Re: Is it normal to drop a book you like halfway through?

      Dropping a story because the story went down the path of terrible writing? I do it all the time. I don't care how awesome the beginning was, if it starts getting stupid, painful, or just cringeworthy in (...)
