    1. Re: Representation isn't as important as people think

      Personally, I don’t care about diversity at all in a story. You can have everyone look identical if you want as long as the premise is good and the characters keep me interested. I hate stories (...)


    2. Re: Representation isn't as important as people think

    3. Re: I feel like the star rating is inflated

      Making it a 10 star system would just make 5 stars the new 3 stars. The deviation from the current formula would be negligible in the grand scheme due to how easy it’d be to just do basic conversions.


    4. Re: Anti-heroes only: art has become predictable and boring.

      To me an anti-hero is just a person that has morals, but usually just does whatever they want as long as it A - Doesn’t infringe on their morality to such an extent that it’s fucked up (like slaughtering (...)


    5. Re: Saving chapters and publishing later, yes or no?

      I write as I go because I’ve realized that what I want now is (usually) never what I want later, and that what I want later (usually) is more concise than what I want now. If I stockpile chapters versus (...)


    6. Re: Do writers have hobbies or are they just writing books?

      I tend to write off anything that holds my attention when I’m not doing something inherently productive (like things for survival) as a hobby for myself. So, I have a lot lmao.


    7. Re: Looking for an Epic Fantasy that's under the radar!

      Now this art is insanely cool! Amazing, Apocryphal! Ikr!? Best piece I’ve gotten so far ;_;


    8. Re: Gender options in your profile

      ... does it really matter?  YES it does. Some people don't want to reveal their gender when they're presenting their creative work (or just browsing) and if it matters to them, then YES it matters. (...)


    9. Re: Gender options in your profile

      ... does it really matter?  So, uh, I really wish this wasn’t a thing, but there have been quite a few psychological studies in various fields showing that people will undervalue work they believe (...)


    10. Re: Looking for an Epic Fantasy that's under the radar!

      You MIGHT like mine, I believe. It’s more a dystopian dark fantasy, but it has a lot of “high fantasy” tropes such as mythical monsters (Yokai), supernatural magic, and all of that jazz. Largely inspired (...)

      ... does it really matter? 


    12. Re: Is styling a character off a game character a bad idea?

      Long as it’s not blatantly obvious what you’re doing, no, it’s not bad. Nothing is new and original nowadays. It’s how you distinguish yourself from others with the same idea that makes your story and (...)


    13. Re: Asexual MC's?

      My MC is pretty asexual in the coming story I have planned. She’s too focused on her mission to bother with relationships.


    14. Re: Post-Apocalyptic/Dystopian Stories!

      You might like my story about an amnesiac superhuman with the ability to steal power from Yokai, Japanese monsters that run amok an urban world. It’s a Grimdark dystopian fantasy, that will turn into a (...)


    15. Re: At what point should one get a profesional cover?

      I pay money for my covers simply because I hate using random images off the internet. I like to see my characters on the cover.


    16. Re: The Science Behind Magic

      As they say: if humans could fly, it'd eventually be considered exercise. If humans knew how magic works, it'd just be another weapon. Or tool. This ^ pretty much what i was getting at too lol


    17. Re: Need advice on how to write certain archetypes.

      For hulk type character, read Rooftop Swordmaster. It's a manhwa. To get an effect like that where he's basically unstoppable, relentless like the terminator, you have to him, yes shrug off attacks like (...)


    18. Re: The Science Behind Magic

      That's fair. I also agree that it's mainly used for world-building, and making stories more interesting, more friendly to escapism. But, I am curious about what you count as an "explanation." You said (...)


    19. Re: The Science Behind Magic

      I think it's just neat. And apparently, most of the readers on Royal Road do too, because the majority of novels have magic. I think our perception of "magic" has been greatly shaped by fictional (...)


    20. Re: What things that make you quit reading a novel after serveral chapters?

      There are a few but the ones that get me the most often is surprise objectification of women. Like, I'm decently decentizized to it at this point since it's just so prevalent in light novels, but occasionally (...)
