    2. Re: Alternatives to the 5-star system?

      If you have ever been on a platform that became a culture of begging for likes, it's not fun. It becomes a popularity contest and a race of who can get the most likes. I'm looking at you Wattpad and (...)

    3. Re: Hello!

      Welcome!! another tip: if you post chapters like once per day, it'll keep your story up on the "latest updates" page longer and you'll get more views :)

    4. Re: Art Rate question

      The map, maybe you could get for less. Hand drawn maps are a lot of money--I charge $25/hr. Inkarnate is the main decent map maker out there, but idk what its rules around commercial use are, so I don't (...)

      Agreed with everything there except the premises for the conclusion that men and women think differently due to biology. Gender does not exist in a vacuum; people assigned female at birth are trained all (...)

    6. Re: When a Royal Road story is partially taken down for KU - do you still read it?

      I do know that my brother has recc'd me a RRL book (This Quest is Bullshit) that was taken down for AU and once I have the money, it's on my list of books to buy. So if the story is good enough, fans will (...)

      A timing function is always good (e.g. set an alarm after I've written for 15 minutes!)

    8. Re: Co-writing - is it effectively impossible to make it work? How would you make it work?

      Minimum passing score for this challenge is one story that runs at least 40 chapters. Wordcount per chapter is?

    9. Re: Looking for recs with no romance, no sex, and great grammar.

      The Lonely Dungeon - short dungeon core story. Its followup story might eventually have romance but this one does not and I liked it. My only wish was that the paragraphs were shorter since my MC is (...)

    10. Re: Piggybacking on the First Comment

      I personally love to see readers have a conversation i brought this up because I keep seeing people not doing this with their piggybacking comments. Like, placing edits under the first comment, which (...)

    14. Re: What's your favorite and most disliked Font.

      I read somewhere that it was a subconscious thing. A less serious font lets you take writing less seriously. It's easier to get the words out when you're less anxious to write. monkey brain: heehoo (...)

    15. Re: How much do you write?

      Definitely depends on what I'm writing and if I have the scene planned out in my head. Stream-of-conscious writing is the fastest, of course, since that gets words out almost as fast as my fingers can (...)

    16. Re: Piggybacking on the First Comment

      That's tenable. It's hard to get a word in edgewise when you might be competing against 20 people wanting to claim first

    17. Re: Piggybacking on the First Comment

      I didn't realize it was a thing but I'm going to start doing it now. Seems like a great way to get noticed! *writes another name down on the hit list*
