1. Re: Racechange! But how?

      You might want to take a look at Chet Williamson's short story Change of Life. I think it was written in the early 90's.  It's a remarkable short story about how being "adaptable" can have unintended (...)

      It depends on the medium, the author, and the software.  In most printed books, scene breaks are indicated like  ***** In some word processing software, a double or triple blank space is appropriate, (...)

    3. Re: A Few Questions for Writers

      I also tend to stay away from explicit, unless it's violence, and I don't write anything erotic or sexual in nature. I always found it baffling how it's perfectly fine to laughingly display (...)

      I sometimes wish from time to time that I had the ability to select which gem I could display. 

    5. Re: What is your end goal?

      I just want to write a story and do it well.  It feels great when the magic hits and you get that one scene just so, you hit the perfect combination of phrase, wording, context, and it's beautiful. (...)

    6. Re: Music for when you write

      The music I listen to when I write?  There is no music I will not listen to, especially when I'm writing.  I just wish I had more hands and brains to adjust playlists and tracks and shit while I'm writing. (...)

    7. Re: The Fancy Pants Kids of RoyalRoad

      This is why we can be friends. Music for me is a pretty big deal, yo.  I think one of the most disappointing things in my life was the realization that there are people who literally don't listen (...)

    8. Re: The Fancy Pants Kids of RoyalRoad

      I have about a terabyte of music saved on my computer.  Music is important, man.

    10. Re: asking cause i'm kinda paranoid

      Google Drive is fine. I've used it for decades and it's only gone down once, and that was only a two-hour downtime which is perfectly acceptable.  I have chapters on "The Goog" I've exported as epub, (...)

    11. Re: What's up with December 31, 1969?

      You know, I love that movie and I watch it over and over again. And one of the things I am very grateful for the machines having terminated were the god-awful hair-dos that Linda Hamilton and her roomie (...)

      Here's a reaction video to thank you for your suggestion. Here's one for you saying the same thing.  Here's one for you saying the opposite thing. 

    13. Re: What's up with December 31, 1969?

      The internet did not exist until the 1970s. In 1975, it was offically declared operational, as all other attempts prior either failed ingloriously or caused the system to crash. The first official attempts (...)

      could voice-to-text your story on your phone. would certainly make typing easier.  There are also hubs you can plug your phone into that're like laptop docking stations.

    16. Re: Why do you like light novels?

      Why do you like light novels? I don't. I'll give you some reasons.  Reason Number 1 I used to translate them, and at first I liked doing it, then I loved doing it, then it was tiring, and then it (...)

    17. Re: The Fancy Pants Kids of RoyalRoad

      What other achievements do you suggest. On one forum I administered, people were able to set a "custom title" below their username after they hit a specific post count.  (Or, if the Admin was feeling (...)

    18. Re: Your fedora-tipping atheism makes your fantasy gods boring

      I think everybody is familiar with this. God bad, religion of any kind bad, church bad, bla bla bla. It got boring pretty fast, franky. When will I read a story where the established church in a story (...)
