    1. Re: Ask the Editor

      Okay, my new favorite thread! Since I was aspiring to be a developmental editor and/or copy editor, what formal training do you suggest? I already have a bachelor's degree, and I've been critiquing others' (...)


    2. Re: questions regarding content warnings and tags

      All the story tags, whether content warnings, genres, whatever, are methods of marketing. People looking for certain things will search for those tags, or if they want to avoid others they will search (...)


    3. Re: Red/Pink Comment?

      Can you at least link us to the chapter? 


    4. Re: Ask the Editor

      Thanks in advance for you answer, and I hope that this isn't asking too much. It wasn't. I've just been insanely busy and exhausted. :) New office job, new baby, and family medical issues. I also got (...)


    5. Re: How do people accrue reviews so easily?

      Review swaps are very popular, and if you go into the threads for them you'll often see some protections to prevent fake ratings and reviews. These are not always possible, but it's also possible that (...)


    6. Re: Magical Systems Framework

      Is this a chart for creating magic systems, or for one magic system?  I believe you have to upload the image to an outside host and then link to it. 


    7. Re: Hi guys, any advice about writting about disabled people?

      Disability, according to the Oxford Language is "a physical or mental condition that limits a person's movements, senses, or activities". Autism: "is a developmental disability that can cause significant (...)


    8. Re: Anyone want a random cover? I don't have a story to go with them but if any fits yours you can have it.

      If you want a custom one, please head over to artbreeder and create the individual elements you'd like and send me a link to them. For best results I suggest doing a face, a fullbody character, and a (...)


    9. Re: Thoughts on authors 'updating' their stories after being published?

      Trad pub generally goes through several revisions before publication, but web pub usually has about two. That's because web pub is pretty much an extended beta read. Some people treat it as an excuse to (...)

    11. Re: For Published Authors: Professional Editor Recommendations?

      Third, if you think you'll be ready by the end of October because you're just finishing up the manuscript, you're not ready.  All of it is great advice, but this one really stuck with me. Sooooooooo (...)


    12. Re: What's a good serial output rate?

      Defier gave enough good advice that I'm just going to defer to him, except for one thing. It is true that the highest earners have focused on one story, and certainly Defier would know. However, take (...)


    13. Re: For Published Authors: Professional Editor Recommendations?

      First, be aware of what you want out of the editing. Second, be prepared to disagree with your editor. Understand that the editor generally has a lot of experience and usually not enough time to teach (...)


    14. Re: Hi guys, any advice about writting about disabled people?

      Jene, if you're determined to turn this writing discussion into a rant about your personal politics, you'll ruin it for everyone. You're making claims about writing today by citing medical treatment (...)

    16. Re: Hi guys, any advice about writting about disabled people?

      The sensitivity reader thing is just a protection racket. It promises to shield you by granting permission, but someone else can come along and disagree. I can grant permission to write about disabilities, (...)


    17. Re: How to Write Characters in Pain

      I just finished reading and, wow, I think I never had anything I'd rate more than 5 or 6 on the medical chart. It makes me look bad saying this, but after reading all that, I feel lucky. Your pain (...)


    18. Re: Leatherwork Charm - based on in-story lore

      Good work. I've been tempted to learn leather tooling as well, but I'm more into woodburning. I used to make stuff for players when I was active in LARP. 


    19. Re: Careful with Amazon

      Yes, KU requires exclusivity. This is why there's a split in litRPG fans among those who prefer KU reading of complete books versus any other version. If you go on r/litrpg, you'll hear user after user (...)


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

      This is entirely correct. Prologues work best not when you use them to cover what happened first, but rather what happened outside the perspective of the main character(s) that needs to be known before (...)
