    1. Re: Request for advice about the resemblance of the universe of my novel with the Dark Souls games

      Wow, thank you for your answers, they are very useful to me. Concerning Tolkien, I know that he himself was strongly inspired by tales and folklore, like for example The Nordic Völsunga saga (which tells (...)


    2. Re: Request for advice about the resemblance of the universe of my novel with the Dark Souls games

      really? it seems that I'm a victim of a cognitive bias so that now that I see my novel in one way, I feel like everyone else would see it in the same way. Good to know. Thank you.


    3. Re: Request for advice about the resemblance of the universe of my novel with the Dark Souls games

      Hello everyone.I am coming to you because I have a question that has been bothering me the last few days. I am currently writing a novel (the first chapter of which will be released in the next few days) (...)


    4. Re: Do you think some antagonists/villains of a story deserve brutal deaths?

      Remember that you are the father and creator of all your characters. If that's the case, in the end, aren't you the one responsible for their nastiness? Is it really so satisfying to create your (...)


    5. Re: What are some issues/lackings/annoying tropes/overdone cliches/etc. in super hero fiction?

      The title says it all. I am just trying to acquire some people's thoughts on the topic. Here is a short list: 1) The main challenge in a superhero story is that it's very easy to create powers (...)


    6. Re: Do you think some antagonists/villains of a story deserve brutal deaths?

      I mean, yeah.   In my own writing, my main characters are evil.  However the villains are even more evil.  This creates a scenario where I get to have a whole lot of fun tormenting the villains (...)


    7. Re: “Show, don’t tell” is stupid advice.

      Scenes take up a lot of the reader's time, so your choice of what to show in a complete scene or tell in a simpler way can either add clarity to the story or kill it.  New writers often make the mistake (...)


    8. Re: Summoned Hero's and Reincarnated people stories shouldn't be handled by beginners.

        To put it harshly if you aren't confident in your ability to create a realistic world from scratch then you should try easier things first. I have a lot more to say but I'll probably wait to see the (...)


    9. Re: Hero's summoned to another world make no sense.

      In this case, it could be very interesting to write realistically about these tropes. This would give the novel a special and new flavor.


    10. Re: Do you think some antagonists/villains of a story deserve brutal deaths?

      The answer is probably yes if : -If you've already managed to create sympathy among your readers for your villain, and your goal is to create a particularly dramatic scene. -If horrible deaths are (...)


    11. Re: Hero's summoned to another world make no sense.

      The idea seems uninspiring for one simple reason: it is often told and explored in the same way (i.e. it is often poorly written), which makes it seem like the idea doesn't make much sense... When (...)
