    1. Re: My Post-Apocalyptic Lesbian Romance Short Story: Debating Posting

      It definitely sucks that it's still a notable issue on here, especially in 2021, like you said. But at the same time, there will never be a space for LGBTQ content on here unless we carve out that space (...)


    2. Re: My Post-Apocalyptic Lesbian Romance Short Story: Debating Posting

      I definitely understand your hesitation. I initially wasn't certain if I should post my novel (a lesbian reincarnation/isekai romance) on here for similar reasons. But I will say, I've actually had (...)


    3. Re: Representation, Content Tags, and Internet Fiction Etiquette

      If you think homosexuality is wrong, that's homophobic. If someone thinks something, they're a dick? They might be nice! See, this is why I don't like the term. From this thread alone I (...)


    4. Re: Representation, Content Tags, and Internet Fiction Etiquette

      Yeah, the reason some of us are getting our hackles up is because people are comparing being uncomfortable with depictions of gay people to being uncomfortable with things like incest and rape. In a thread (...)


    5. Re: Representation, Content Tags, and Internet Fiction Etiquette

      TECHNICALLY, it's not homophobia. Unless you count throwing up when seeing something gay as a fearful response to something (which would count, I guess) It'd be homomisia :) Like I said, pedantic (...)


    6. Re: Representation, Content Tags, and Internet Fiction Etiquette

      And, while I don't know what people have said, it is fair for people to be uncomfortable if they get surprised by homosexual romance because that doesn't match the standard expectation. To put yourself (...)


    7. Re: Representation, Content Tags, and Internet Fiction Etiquette

      Hey, if you aren't pissing the right people off with your stories, you aren't doing it right! lol I'd argue though that lesbians are seen in a much better light than gay men are. There are quite a (...)


    8. Re: Author' Notes Uses

      I've really just been using my author's notes to inform my readers if there's going to be a change in the update schedule or something like that. Or sometimes I post links to fanart people have shared (...)


    9. Re: Representation, Content Tags, and Internet Fiction Etiquette

      I would never consider something like a "warning". My brainstorming for what I would add if I did so has ended up something like: "Ouroboros Ascendant contains gay, bisexual, and straight main and supporting (...)


    10. Re: Representation, Content Tags, and Internet Fiction Etiquette

      I do think it's a good thing to let people know if your story contains LGBT content, but I don't think it should be framed as a content warning. As a lesbian, I tend to seek out LGBT content specifically, (...)


    11. Re: Do you have a writing schedule? Or nah?

      I have a writing schedule because I have an update schedule (twice weekly), but I usually end up writing pretty last second lol. I have ADHD so I have a hard time forming routines if I don't have any sort (...)


    12. Re: Feedback on plot point revolving around arranged marriage

      I don't think the fact that it's cliche is a problem. A lot of people enjoy cliches, especially in romance fiction. Just personally, I think you could make it stronger if the Prince and Princess have (...)


    13. Re: New Upcoming Story: Post-Apocalyptic Lesbian Romance! <3

      I'm happy to see some fellow lesbian writers on here! I'm excited for your story!


    14. Re: Does a Staggered Release Schedule Discourage You to Write?

      I've been writing all my life, but I've never been very prolific, and I have ADHD so I have a really hard time motivating myself to do things (even things I enjoy doing) without some sort of outside structure (...)


    15. Re: "Thanks for the chapter "

      I genuinely really appreciate those comments because it makes it feel worthwhile to post my story on here, since someone's reading it! I feel awkward responding to comments most of the time, unless it (...)


    16. Re: Just launched my first webnovel!

      Thank you! I designed the title logo myself and I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. 




    17. Re: Just launched my first webnovel!

      I just posted the first three chapters of my new webnovel, The Saintess and the Villainess That may seem like a meager accomplishment for the celebration forums, but I've been working really hard on (...)


    18. Re: High fantasy or low fantasy

      Neither, really. Especially if we're defining the difference as between epic fantasy and sword & sorcery. My favorite fantasy novels include the Discworld series, The Last Unicorn, and various women's (...)
