    1. Re: WHO IS HYPED FOR WRITATHON?

      I shall break free of the shackles of editing and pre-planning! I have little idea of what I want to write about so I'm going with a small idea and just rambling along as fast as I can :) Doubling (...)


    2. Re: How to copy Blue Boxes?

      Start your cursor on the line above the box, then drag down past the box to highlight all of it. Usually works for me


    3. Re: Again, what has happened? Is RR dead?

      I will politely disagree with both parts of the statement


    4. Re: What's the highest ranking you've ever received, and how does the Ranking system work?

      I keep hitting the mid 800's and then someone tosses me a .5 and I head back up a ways. I'm not to worried about the ranking. (Getting a .5 is annoying as shit though, and always will be. Especially when (...)


    5. Re: Guys do you think that it's believable that in 4000 years of history the same monarchy system remained?

      In a historical novel, no. But if you aren't righting history, sure. Just take some pains to detail why it has endured. If it's one crazy king after another, seems like you'd have some turnover. But maybe (...)


    6. Re: up, down, repeat, keep writing

      I've noticed a trend. The rating on my story slowly goes up, i get to about 850, and a .5 star bomb gets dropped. The first time bothered me, now it just seems to be the natural way of things.  (...)


    7. up, down, repeat, keep writing

      I've noticed a trend. The rating on my story slowly goes up, i get to about 850, and a .5 star bomb gets dropped. The first time bothered me, now it just seems to be the natural way of things. 


    8. Re: Which cover would you be more inclined to click on?

      I like the first one much better. Much more interesting.


    9. Re: Can creatures that have inherently evil instincts be good?

      The writer will decide.  In the real world, I don't think we have "inherent evil" or "inherent good". And if talking fantasy, then whoever makes the world is going to have to decide. It's a bit of a (...)


    10. Re: Promote your story – but by only describing your protagonist

      A shepherd who has a monstrosity for a pet and not a sheepdog. A very dangerous barmaid. A butcher who barbeques angels. Ben Franklin's great, great, great, great grandson.



    11. 200k words.

      Just passed this milestone. I had a laugh when I looked at my original outline. I'm 70 chapters in and not quite up to the events I originally thought I'd get to in chapter 20 :) The story grew a bit, (...)


    12. Re: 150 readers and rising stars?

      It does seem to be a big boost. Puts your story out to a lot more folks. Hopefully you get a ton more readers.  Congrats.



    13. Re: Liquid lighter than air?

      reminds me of liquid glowstone in minecraft :) If the liquid had some sort of antigravity property, possibly when charged with magic? If you go science, it's tough to come up with anything.


    14. Re: How long did it take to plot your story?

      I had the start of my story plotted in about  month, but only the first 20 chapters. Writing those 20 chapters has taken 65 chapters and not done. The story grows. My writing process is 10% ongoing plot, (...)


    15. Re: Anyone know how often writathons happen?

      How do most people do it? Just write and post? Or do they try to do their usual editing? Yep, just write and post. During the writeathon all editing is pushed aside in an effort to write faster. (...)


    16. Re: Anyone know how often writathons happen?

      How do most people do it? Just write and post? Or do they try to do their usual editing?


    17. Re: Anyone know how often writathons happen?

      I don't like them as much since many authors prepare the chapters in advance, and then just post at once during the writathon. It's like cheating (you could literally write 0 words during the writathon (...)


    18. Re: Does anyone just casually leave forshadowing that you know won't come into effect until 200 chapters late (...)

      I don't foreshadow so much as toss out a lot of small hooks and ideas. This style was taught to me by Chuck Dixon who was writing Robin, Birds of Prey, and Nightwing at the time. He complicated the characters (...)
