    1. Re: Between these two paragraphs, which is more impactful?

      Now, this might not be what you want to hear, but I would take neither of them. My problem is that they go too much in the direction of purple prose. I find the suggestion of @Zogatrh the best reduction (...)


    2. Re: What's the deal with Dungeons?

      @DarkKirby I love video games and fantasy, so it was easy for me to grasp LitRPG. But Dungeon core had me scratching my head. I think I get it now though. @Bananalloy Yea I'm working on a kingdom (...)


    3. Re: Editing

      I edit spelling/grammar mistakes found by readers. Never the story. I only ever edit while I'm writing a chapter. Once it's released, its final. I don't do second drafts. 


    4. Re: What's the deal with Dungeons?

      To really get the whole thing behind it, look up a video game called Dungeon Keeper.  you play a dungeon core in the came, and it and a similar game that came out at roughly the same time, just called (...)


    5. Re: So I'm 5 Chapters in and It's very choppy.

      Keep chugging at it! Don't worry too much since it's your first story. As you become more experienced, you'll have a better feel for your writing. It might help to think about your characters' arcs (...)


    6. Re: The feeling of writing too much for a chapter

      Do you mean the case where a scene being very long (e.g. final battle) forces you to go over your 5k word count target?  I wouldn't split it. As others have said, a chapter is as long/short as it needs (...)


    7. Re: What's the deal with Dungeons?

      Yes, Dungeon Core! That's mainly what my question is about. It just feels so "static" to me, to have an MC that doesn't go anywhere. Static portion is only in the initial chapters though. As most (...)


    8. Re: How hard is it to make the trending page?

      I echo David Musk's comment. I've seen stories with as little as 6 chapters and 14 days old appear in trending. On the opposite end, there are also stories with sporadic release schedules that make (...)


    9. Re: What's the deal with Dungeons?

      There's also a whole sub-genre called Dungeon Core where the dungeons are the character. Yes, Dungeon Core! That's mainly what my question is about. It just feels so "static" to me, to have an (...)


    10. Re: Hopping between characters.

      I use  ~*~  to indicate a change in POV if I have multiple POV's in one chapter. I use triple space for skips in time in the same POV.


    11. Re: How to make a splash

      With the synopsis, you wanna catch the reader's interest right away with the first sentence. That's cause people only see the first few sentences when they're browsing the Latest Updates (which is where (...)


    12. Re: What's the deal with Dungeons?

      Hey, I'm kind of new to GameLit, having written a book so far and working on my second story right now. I see stories with "Dungeon" as a tag or in the title getting a lot of followers. Why is that? (...)

    14. Re: I need some recs

      My story's MC is female. Lots of fantastical monsters and mayhem. It's just getting started, so I'd understand if you'd wanna wait for a backlog of chapters. Anyways, here's the blurb. Link to story in (...)

    19. Re: Looking for Kingdom building

      My story's primary focus is on kingdom building. It's LitRPG, but game mechanics are minimal. Please check it out! Link is in my signature below. The Valkyrie System Lilith dies after giving birth (...)
