    1. Re: How many authors learn about personality theory / typology when writing characters?

      I lose brain cells every time someone posts a response  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


    2. Re: How many authors learn about personality theory / typology when writing characters?

      Taking the dichotomies in the MBTI too literally leads to flat characters. For example, placing a preference for "Thinking" and a preference for "Feeling" in opposition to each other is a quick way to (...)


    3. Re: Dialogue Tags

      Thanks for pitching in, everyone! Skywind, I really appreciate the offer. Alas, I do have liberal use of special formatting. I'll set aside some time to slowly work through the chapters manually. (...)


    4. Re: Dialogue Tags

      Yes, I can see how it would be distracting. If you have a coding friend, you can ask him to do a regular expression replacement of your text effectively replacing all quotations ' with " and the quotations (...)


    5. Re: How many authors learn about personality theory / typology when writing characters?

      It's clear to see that most people only have a surface level understanding of everything, which doesn't surprise me. If you want people who are more familiar with it, you can check out Typology (...)


    6. Re: How many authors learn about personality theory / typology when writing characters?

      I believe it is really important to know what the personality models represent because they have really severe limits. It is also important to be very careful about using pop psychology because most (...)


    7. Re: How many authors learn about personality theory / typology when writing characters?

      People only "change" personality types if they rely solely on taking a quiz to determine their type in the first place. Just so we're on the same page, the chart you're talking about is this, right? https://i.gyazo.com/thumb/1200/83547a1506faee506b31ac723486d43b-png.jpg (...)


    8. Re: How many authors learn about personality theory / typology when writing characters?

      So, lately I've been highly interested in the subject matter of learning about the 8 cognitive functions and their interactions that manifest in an MBTI archetype. My motivation for doing this is to understand (...)



    9. Re: Review Swap: Pitch me your story -- if I like it I'll review it

      Blurb: Roughly two millennia ago, Mana and monsters appeared in the world of Eiruta overnight, forcing all organisms to undergo a selection process; those who could not adapt to the Mana died while (...)


    10. Re: reviews and ratings, why am I not getting any?

      You don't really have to worry about that. As a fellow writer, I understand the desperate need for feedback, but like the others said, most readers are lurkers.  If you want an exemple, one of my chapter (...)

    17. Re: How To Get Readers?!

      You probably still have more readers than me. I only have a handful of like 100 active readers now. Plus that whole comment thing I never got but that's okay. Most of my readers come from external methods. (...)


    18. Re: Non-standard review swap

      Well, well, well. This is a homecoming month or what? You, me, wonder who else will I see next. O hey, long time no see, I guess. TOPA's dead as far as I can tell.


    19. Re: Non-standard review swap

      Appreciate the effort, but I asked for specifically feedback on the story. The reason why I want feedback, reader feedback in particular is because I like to hear what people are thinking at each point (...)
