    1. Re: Looking For English Light Novels To Read (Self-Promotion Allowed)

      I was pretty curious if experiments like Wattpad might evolve into traditional Western publishers moving into more pulpy, episodic stuff; seems like no one has really cracked that conundrum over here (...)


    2. Re: Hey ho, 1st time writer here!

      It's not just being overly verbose. It just condenses the story and improves flow. Really makes ya work on workflow. Brandon Sanderson, Steven King, most editors, etc, will tell ya to do that. Yes! (...)


    3. Re: Hey ho, 1st time writer here!

      Then I cut 10% of it. Yeah. I always overwrite. It's easier, at first to be verbose. Then I happily kill thousands upon thousands of words. DIE WORDS! DIE! HA HA HA! πŸ˜²


    4. Re: Hey ho, 1st time writer here!

      How many times you guys go over your Chap before posting? I'm gonna go with --- about a million.  Seriously. My first drafts are the equivalent of a monkey banging on a typewriter.  Subsequent drafts (...)


    5. Re: You can't outsmart God, and he doesn't particularly care for you either.

      The way to trick someone who thinks they're 'All That' is easy-peasy. You play their sense of Pride against some sort of Virtue. Like, for instance, you act all Humble and Reverent, until you get Him to (...)


    6. Re: Two articles on travel times pre modern transportation

      If it is hilly or god forbid, mountainous, that number drops quickly. Mountains ain't nothing compared to bogs and fens. πŸ˜

      dumbass deities Ooh. Yass. Sounds like a new made-for-TV series on The CW.  Dumbass Dieties. Coming this fall. On the CW. πŸ˜€


    9. Re: Looking For English Light Novels To Read (Self-Promotion Allowed)

      Light Novel in Japan is called such because they refer to those books as 'light, casual reading'. Yes! Light reading, with no heavy underlying theme. Also lots of dialogue, to go with the pictures. (...)


    10. Re: Need motivation

      I'm not sure what genre you write in, but here are some cool pictures I found on artstation: Ooh. Diesel-Punky. Me like-y. πŸ˜


    11. Re: Royal Road Tags Description

      Never really understood what counts as High Fantasy and what's Low Fantasy. Harry Potter happens in our world, so it's Low Fantasy.  Lord of the Rings does not happen in our world, so it's High Fantasy. (...)


    12. Re: You can't outsmart God, and he doesn't particularly care for you either.

      Now I want to meet a story where the main characters meet gods, and gods turns out to be a cavemen who thinks the MC is the truly extraordinary one for having clothes on. That is an AWESOME idea!  I (...)


    13. Re: What do you consider most important in a fight scene?

      Choreography- specifically the sequence of steps and movements involved, and how it impacts the pacing You know what gets me, sometimes, when I read a fight scene someone's written, who didn't take the (...)


    14. Re: Royal Road Tags Description

      working with the forum bb code is a pain Jawohl da, mein Bester. It is like wrestling with snakes.  On another note, as I am here, it would be nice if Royal Road had an Bishōjo/Otome tag, wouldn't (...)


    15. Re: What do you consider most important in a fight scene?

      Here is a blog post with some great advice on the subject (the whole blog is worth reading): https://www.benjamincheah.com/2020/10/10/the-secret-to-writing-powerful-action-scenes/ That is a good post! (...)


    16. Re: What do you consider most important in a fight scene?

      I personally believe fight scenes are a very effective way to liven up a story after a long period of just story telling, as well as to embolden the narrative and progress a character's personality. (...)

    18. Re: A quick interview with Andrew K. Rowe

      Thank you. James T. Callum also agreed to a short interview. He's the author of the newish Beastborne Series.  Cool!  Let me know when you post it!


    19. Re: A quick interview with Andrew K. Rowe

      Wow. That is, like, awesome.  Good on you!  πŸ‘


    20. Re: Sci-fi tags?

      I'd say the distinction is that a hard SF story emphasizes and makes critical the plausible scientific means of achieving the things described in the story whereas a soft SF story doesn't really make (...)
