1. Re: Welp, Edit Time Again.

      A good rule of thumb is that editing takes half the time that writing did. If you actually clock your writing time, you can get a good estimate of how long it'll take to edit something. 

    2. Re: If I published here in RR can I still go traditional?

      It depends on the publisher.  Amazon makes you remove everything but a teaser from RR. That's only Kindle Ultimate, not Amazon's primary platform.

    3. Re: The Blue Box Is A Trap

      https://i.ibb.co/zHyBJQ9/grrrr.png Thank you for your input, random backseat writer-guy. :peogiggle: More on-topic: I agree that blue boxes can be a trap, but like any other narrative tool, (...)

      Hello, hello, hello RR Forums. I'm MelasD, author of Salvos and a few other fics, and today I just hit 10,000 followers on my main fic. To celebrate, I'd like to give some exposure to lesser known fictions (...)

    5. Re: Question to readers: Why assume stupidity when an explanation is not yet given?

      I don't know. If multiple people tell you the same thing in every story you have posted here, maybe there is a problem with your stories?  :DrakanSigh: Are you... being sarcastic? Like, ironically (...)

    6. Re: [Official] New Border, New look.

      Fun fact: this was one of the first borders we commissioned. Another fun fact: I was about to go with a border with a bunch of puppies(really cute, really fluffy). I ended up changing that in the final (...)

      I forgot to say, but it's really cool that you shared this. Thanks! You're welcome! 

    8. Re: How do you feel after dropping a novel/story

      Relieved?  A bit melancholic, but sometimes a story doesn't work out. 

    9. Re: Dumbest name for a character you've ever come up with

      Oh boy!  I named every dragon in Cinnamon Bun after an emoji. Rhawresdee is Rawr XD Cholondee is :D And so on. Every dragon mentioned has some abomination of a name. Some people got really miffed. (...)

    10. Re: Tips for designing covers

      There are a number of free image sites where you might find something you can use. Some sites are https://pixabay.com/ https://www.pexels.com/ https://morguefile.com/ I've found pixabay to (...)

    11. Re: Royal Road stories' movie or TV adaptation

      This is going to be a hated opinion, but I really want mother of learning to be turned into a long-running tv-show. Think the witcher but with more focus on the magic. 3-7 seasons of story with a budget (...)

    12. Re: How much do you write?

      Y'all need more spread-sheets!  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zC39PmvNObsuOhdcd3VVH2eiwfjkbgaA69ZwvdJk5Iw/edit#gid=956909604

    13. Re: RoyalRoad is the first site I've found that listens to its members

      At the beginning of January, myself and many others contributed to emperor yair's debate topic, 'stories that the author delete the content to sell on amazon should be deleted from this site.' While (...)

    14. Re: Killing off the characters you love

      How is the experience when you have to kill off the characters you absolutely love and adore? Is it too depressing? How do you cope? :peoconfused: Characters aren't real people, they're tools (...)

    15. Re: What are your writing goals?

      Hey! I've been trying to set a realistic weekly writing goal to keep up with my stories here on RR and was curious to know what/if other peoples writing output looked like. What are your goals to keep (...)

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

      I am worldbuilding my novel and am considering doing something like a school life but I am averse towards it as it introduces stereotypes that might become boring in the long run. What do you guys (...)

    17. Re: Music for when you write

      I like listening to soft cute stuff, like Gwar Gura's compilations, or some playlists of happier music. Oh, and the Doom OST for when I'm writing something particularly fluffy. 

    18. Re: The Xianxia tag should have a '/cultivation' at the end

      I think I've only read Xanxia. So, I can't really describe the difference between Wuxia and Xanxia. Don't Xanxia cultivators also grow with superhuman feats of martial arts? just like Wuxia? where (...)

    19. Re: Change in Story Page Book Cover Image Links

      Really? (I say to test it)  EDIT: Yup, hella borked. EDIT 2: Seems to have added 'http://' to the end of every link.
