    1. Re: 🦆🐰Sunday Snippets 03/07 | WEEK 49 - The Royal Road Magazine!🦦🐧

      “It’s not going to lift easily. Grab a hold,” Elliot ran a nail across the painted-over gap between the window frame and the ledge. Florence limbered up, digging in her fingernails as she clutched the (...)


    2. Re: What are your thoughts on parentheses in fiction?

      I'd never used them before my current project - they just suited the voice of my POV character. I don't think I'm doing a very good job with using them consistently as they're not a part of my usual writing (...)


    3. Re: A loop of re writing

      Stop rewriting. Finish the thing. Leave it for 2 months. (Or 3, or 6). Then go back and edit. Firstly, by constantly rewriting the beginning you won't be improving your writing skills. After you write (...)


    4. Re: Worldbuilding: what’s your style?

      Badly, most of the trouble comes from the fact that characters should know most of this stuff about their own worlds. No one's going to explain the magic system in world when every man, woman and child (...)


    5. Re: I'll review anybody's story based off the first 5 chapters

      Uh... do you have any free time after starting this thread?  :drakansweat: Truly doing a service to the RR community! Can I join the queue? Link's in description. 


    6. Re: What would you say is the "acceptable limit" of words per chapter

      My problem with longer chapters (5k) is I find my attention wandering in the middle (even if it's riveting stuff - truly, there is no explanation) and looking at the sidebar to see how much is left, or (...)


    7. Re: July Thread - Promote your Story

      People disappeared. And nobody remembers. Florence lives in Truthsend Village, her life governed by two principles: - Nobody leaves - Nobody lies But when Outsiders come to the village, she begins (...)


    8. Re: Free First Chapter Feedback!

      Wow, this thread's really cool! tbh it's kind of intimidating, but you don't get anywhere without honest feedback, right? If you have the time, could you take a look at my first chapter? Link in signature. (...)


    9. Re: Questions About the End

      I get the premise and ending of story ideas together - which is to say, I know how the whole thing ends, even if I don't know exactly what's going to happen. I've never changed an ending, I don't think? (...)


    10. Re: Free First Chapter Feedback!

      Wow, this thread's really cool! tbh it's kind of intimidating, but you don't get anywhere without honest feedback, right? If you have the time, could you take a look at my first chapter? Link in signature. (...)



    11. Re: How do page views work?

      From what I know, page views are counted once the story part is accessed. It excludes author’s views, and is on a cycle of every 15 minutes. So at around those intervals, your views should be coming in (...)


    12. How do page views work?

      Not quite sure where to put this, but I guess it's a request for assistance in clarifying how page views work? lol More particularly, I assume that authors don't contribute to page/chapter views, right? (...)


    13. Re: Paragraph Length

      Tbh sometimes I just scan my eye down the page and whenever I see a big chunk of text I choose a suitable point and press the big ol' enter button. When you write, you write on A4, but lots of readers (...)


    14. Re: Full time workers. When do you find the time to write? What's your schedule?

      Umm, I'm joining the shhh-don't-tell-I-write-at-work train.  :DrakanThink: In all honesty, my job varies from being pretty demanding to having nothing to do - I don't see why I should sit there and twiddle (...)


    15. Re: Sunday Snippet 12/06 | WEEK 47 - 👨Happy Father's Day Version!👨

      The next day dawned dark and damp. Florence woke later than usual, and by the time she went downstairs, her father was ready for work. Dressed in his tweed suit, his leather briefcase sitting by the door, (...)


    16. Re: Giving out [Free] reviews [OPEN]

      There. No more backlog. The world is at peace.  Ah! I'm late! Thanks so much for the review! (I don't know how you do so many???)  


    17. Re: How do you plan out chapters and story arcs?

      It depends how much of a discovery writer you are versus an outliner. As it seems like you're wanting to play around with outlining, however, I'll answer accordingly. There are many outlining methods, (...)


    18. Re: Review Swaps (2 Slots Left)

      Can I grab a spot? For the (only) story in my signature? It's currently at 8k, it might be 10k depending on when you read it/how fast I write OTL (if by some miracle it's more than that, there's no need (...)


    19. Re: Giving out [Free] reviews [OPEN]

      Edit: actually, I just realised that I don't know whether this being part of the June contest affects anything? 🤔 Like everyone else, I, too, would like a review, please. Genre: mystery, supernatural(?), (...)
