    1. Re: Giving out [Free] reviews

      Wow, I never thought you'd finish all of those! I didn't want to worsen things by throwing it onto a never-ending backlog, but since you've actually battled your way through (and seem to be looking for (...)


    2. Re: Don't include a prologue in your story

      I resisted putting a prologue in for some time for fear of cheapening the story or spoiling certain elements. In the end I found it a decent compromise between keeping the slower-paced building of tension (...)


    3. Re: Pin the head on the angel!

      Thanks for the feedback guys! Very helpful! After talking to some friends as well I think I'm going with the first one, as it looks a little more menacing and the expression (and eyes) are directed towards (...)


    4. Re: Which piece of fiction has had the biggest impact on your life?

      Lord of the Rings, without a doubt. I was given the Harry Potter books to read by my year two teacher (I'd be 7, I guess), and they were my first real non-fiction book series, but they just did not have (...)


    5. Re: Pin the head on the angel!

      Ok, need some help. So here we have the Word of God (an angel) about to unleash his voice. Which of the heads is better? I've looked at them too long and now they both just look like squiggles to me, (...)


    6. Re: Paradise Lost: What an old book can teach about describing cool fantasy armaments

      I always quite appreciated his standoff with Death and the description of the War in Heaven, in all its infernal-engined, mountain chucking glory...


    7. Re: Looking for Things to Review

      You can do mine if you like Stg, sounds pretty cool.


    8. Re: A Fantasy Review swap

      Up for some apocalyptic dark-fantasy?


    9. Re: Re-edited my chapters. Anyone for review swaps?

      Could be up for a swap with my work. It's in the signature, so just check it's something that appeals to you. I'll start reading yours now! It seems to be amazing from the reviews already present! (...)

    11. Re: How do i portray my story as a warfare mystery fantasy through the cover?

      I agree with the others. It needs weapons, corpses, a sense of danger. Dark with high contrast and lots of shadows. A less cartoony vibe would also go a long way. Of course that's just my personal (...)


    12. Re: Dark Fantasy Writers?

      I'm all about Dark Fantasy. I love fantastical or supernatural elements in fiction (almost to the point of requiring them), but I struggle to enjoy a story when it doesn't reflect reality in its morals, (...)


    13. Re: You look like you want to click on this review swap

      Took a look at the prose and it seems like something I can read. I'd be happy to swap. Great! I took a lot at your story as well and, since there are a lot of chapters, I'd like to ask how much (...)

    15. Re: Killing off the main character

      I'm waiting for the web novel where the first-person protagonist gets offed 2/3 of the way through the story and suddenly we have a new POV. The sheer balls it would take to pull that off would (...)

    18. Re: What's the foundation of storytelling?

      Yeah I do, and I know what you're saying. It's just a hard thing to do really. Not to get too poetic and shit, but I think a piece of prose is always going to be greater than the sum of its parts. I (...)


    19. Re: What's the foundation of storytelling?

      I imagine that way of looking at it might make things more difficult. Enough time investment can make you good at most anything, but in order to put the necessary hours in you also have to enjoy it enough (...)


    20. Re: Killing off the main character

      If it makes sense from a story perspective, seems like a fitting end to the character or advances the plot, then by all means, do it! In one of my books I had to kill a protagonist I really loved writing, (...)
