    1. Re: How do you feel about character change?

      Conan the Barbarian did undergo character growth throughout Howard's stories. Compare the young mercenary in 'The Frost Giant's Daughter' to the good King of Aquilonia Conan would become. It's a fairly (...)

    4. Re: How much words do you put in a chapter everyday

      Since you are (presumably) a fellow hobby writer remember that this isn't a competition. So don't get too hung up on your output to the point it gets in the way of your writing or enjoyment. Practice improves (...)

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

      Simply, these are reflections of the culture and society of the writer. The shifts from the puerile priests and loving homes are a reflection of a world where such things are hokey and laughable at best, (...)


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

      I hesitated to reply, but if IvyVeritas and Vivoni's stories are here I don't see why mine can't be. One of my reviewers described book 1 as 'a high fantasy tall tale'. The plotlines take a lot of notes (...)

      I don't know League of Legends, but as for basing characters on others (even extremely heavily) there is nothing wrong with that at all. It is in fact a standard practice of writers everywhere. If you (...)

    13. Re: What was the book that make you want to write?

      I've been an avid reader most of my life and scribbled without much seriousness off and on for years not thinking it would go anywhere. It wasn't until I found a number of really good indie authors that (...)

    15. Re: I'm looking for some recommendations, believe it or not.

      I recommend checking out Savage Hunters: https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/37560/savage-hunters The same author has recently started posting another story as well that may be up your alley (too early (...)


    16. Re: Fellow writers, how do you deal with being disheartened?

      I don't really have this problem myself, but it seems a lot of authors do. It's not that surprising really, you want people to like your work and are disheartened when they don't, factor in the pandemic (...)

    18. Re: If you don't have a solid story idea, how...?

      This might help for more structured brainstorming: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfWUtHMlZf8  If you're still having trouble narrowing down your options after having several full story ideas try writing (...)
