    1. Re: Thedude3445's Weekly TheReviews3445 Thread (No Swaps, Don't Stop)

      who sadly dropped their stories before I reached them Didn't drop it :-) just for the moment couldn't keep it on RR and WP. Will be continued etc. etc.


    2. Re: Real World Drug Use in Stories?

      My story features a magical drug, that slowly 'saps' the will of people. I also touch upon some other edge cases, like borderline pedophilia (well, more like a huge age difference and sick treatment of (...)


    3. Re: Review Reciprocation Game: Trying to generate many reviews for underexposed authors

      I like this concept. Feels a bit like Scribophile. I'll add a review tonight. Sorry, got a little distracted :-) Still, you'd have to add another rule, perhaps. I guess one could add any story for (...)


    4. Re: Chapter Critique Swap

      Hi! I'd like to do that...my story is a thriller, action...some romance.  About 4k would be my chapters from 1-4.  See if the story interests you enough and let me know if you agree on the swap - (...)


    5. Re: Review Reciprocation Game: Trying to generate many reviews for underexposed authors

      I like this concept. Feels a bit like Scribophile. I'll add a review tonight.


    6. Re: Do you prefer reading/writng on mobile or desktop?

      Reading... Never on mobile. I prefer an e-reader or a tablet. Writing... Never on mobile. I either write on a tablet (a Samsung S6 like with an external Logitech K380 keyboard), or a desktop / laptop. (...)


    7. Re: Free Review

      This thread is proof that the bulk of people don’t read the contents of a thread beyond the title before they post. That’s rough. One of those facts of life nobody likes to admit, just like being (...)


    8. Re: Free Review

      Ah. Do people ever read, I wonder... Guess not :D I wonder how long we can keep this thread alive this way :-)


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

      The story I read I just hope it wasn't mine! If it was, drop me a line, and I promise I'll do better next time :-)


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

      - Dialogue that went on for two chapters between two characters so the author could info dump. Guilty, your honor! (Okay, perhaps not two chapters, but I admit I used it deliberately, though (...)


    11. Re: Chapter Critique Swap

      I'm interested! My chapter 1 and 2 combined is around 4k words.  https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/37108/death-in-siberia-the-last-woman-on-earth Let me know if you're keen and I will get to yours (...)


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

      It takes a lot to make me quit a novel after several chapters nowadays. I'm much better at spotting either bad writing, terrible characterization, poor pacing, cliches, or boring voice after the first (...)

    15. Re: Reviews Explained

      EDIT - I felt moved to add that the rest of the advice is great and I'm grateful for it.  I apologise for leading with the negative.  Isn't it weird that apostrophes is one of those subjects that can (...)


    16. Re: Free Review

      Ah. Do people ever read, I wonder...


    17. Re: Free Review

      My story is ongoing. It already has a review, but I'd like to get more opinions on it. I am very inexperienced so if it isn't pleasant to read please feel free to say so. Thx for proving my point :-) (...)


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

      I thought only registered readers can rate, can they not?


    19. 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. (...)


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

      Of course, I'm not opposed to making the top ten static.  They seem pretty good to me : ) I sense some bias ;-)
