    1. Re: Why are most gaming communities cancer?

      It seems to me like gaming for some reason attracts a much less mature audience than most other communities. I've been a member (well WAS a member until I got sick of them) of various gaming communities (...)


    2. Re: What are the most common writting mistakes for inexperienced authors?

      A question about editors: How much of famous works made by popular authors like JK Rowling are actually them Vs the editor? Would their books have flopped without professional editing?


    3. Re: What are the most common writting mistakes for inexperienced authors?

      Not understanding that infodumping is usually bad, and that there are very particular reasons why people like David Weber can get away with it. (Short version: his infodumps are basically flash fiction, (...)


    4. Re: What are the most common writting mistakes for inexperienced authors?

      Giving a shit about feedback. Seriously. The majority of feedback you get is just shit. If I listened to all the feedback I got, I should have quit writing a long time ago, as the only thing I know how (...)


    5. Re: What's the worst thing a character you've liked done?

      Are you talking about a characters from your own stories or from somebody else's.


    6. Re: What are the most common writting mistakes for inexperienced authors?

      For both beginners and also just in general? By beginners mistakes, I'm not taking about things like grammar. I'm talking about the actual writing. What in your opinions, are some of the most common (...)


    7. Re: Is 5k words per chapter too long for a web series?

      Often chapters end at around the 3k mark, but I also often find that I can't put all the relevant content into chapters with such strict character limits. Do most people really care that much if a chapter (...)


    8. Re: Best ways to describe a character looking/redirecting its attention towards another one?

      I've been somewhat undecided in regards to what the best way is to describe the act of a character redirecting its attention to another one. I felt that merely writing "he looked at X character" felt (...)


    9. Re: What's your preferred method of story telling?

      I mix character dialog that is spoken in present tense, with narration written in past tense. There is plenty of lore injected by the narrator, but only when it's relevant (aka no random info dumps where (...)


    10. Re: Best ways to describe a character looking/redirecting its attention towards another one?

      I've been somewhat undecided in regards to what the best way is to describe the act of a character redirecting its attention to another one. I felt that merely writing "he looked at X character" felt boring, (...)


    11. Re: Explosive Royal Road Growth?

      Two words: Corona lockdowns.


    12. Re: Need help describing character shock/awe/stun etc without it getting repetitive

      What is it called when a character has sparkling eyes except its because they are in a state of horrified shock? Isn't the term "sparkling eyes" used to describe somebody who is happy/good looking etc? (...)


    13. Re: Need help describing character shock/awe/stun etc without it getting repetitive

      The nature of my story is such that there are many moments where various characters enter stunned/shocked/horrified etc mental states.  However I'm beginning to run out of descriptive ways to describe (...)



    14. Re: How to spell unnatural speech?

      What about other types of sounds like laughter? Things like "heh" or "ha ha hah ah etc"


    15. Re: How to spell unnatural speech?

      I'm talking about things that humans say but aren't really words. Example: "Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ok den." Or "Ah!" Vs "Ahhhhhhhh!" Are there any official rules/guidelines in regards to how you (...)


    16. Re: How do you create your stories?

      I'm not the type of writer who believes in creating super detailed lore or characters before I start writing. I just have a broadstroke vision, then use that as a guide. Then after the first drift, I will (...)


    17. Re: How much depth do you put into your stories?

      I throw in lore when it's relevant, in some cases as much as several paragraphs. I try not to spam info dumps all the time though. I also try to feed lore to the reader over time instead of dumping ALL (...)


    18. Re: Is the use of multiple question and/or exclaimation marks bad writing practice?

      I'm talking about using more than one ? or ! sign at the end of character statements to empathize shock or surprise. Is this considered bad writing practice? Example: "What the heck? Vs What the (...)


    19. Re: A question about character names and grammar

      Is this sentence grammatically correct? The hangar bay was empty by the time of Andreas’s arrival. Why do I get a red underscore suggesting a spelling error when I put an 's at the end of his name? (...)
