    1. Re: How would your character react after meeting you, the author?

      Saiph would probably buy me a beer over our shared histories and would appreciate the fact that I gave him a second chance. Sinnamon, W3aver, ix, and I would probably be good gaming friends. Same with (...)

    2. Re: 30k words in Last 5 Days

      That's some big progress Congrats! :)

    3. Re: Something fundamentally wrong with my writing?

      Putting in a variety of dialogue tags is when it gets crappy.  Read what I linked. I am not talking about subbing out "said" for words like "exclaimed" I am talking about using character action (...)

    4. Re: Less or More?

      Interesting, though I would argue it is very much a finished product, you're just getting a smaller part of it. I don't think it's practical to release a 5K chapter every five weeks - no one is going (...)

    5. Re: Something fundamentally wrong with my writing?

      I'm just gonna link you to this. Most likely, your chapters don't have enough character, setting, or worldbuilding in them. I'm also gonna link you to this. Most likely, you also don't vary your (...)

    6. Re: Less or More?

      What if the "chapters themselves are well over 1K but they're broken up into multiple 1K posts because the author can't keep up with a more intense writing schedule than 1K/week? Build a bigger (...)

    7. Re: Editing roll call!!!!

      I endorse this endeavor.  Same, though I cannot actually participate because I don't have the free time to edit other people's works any more. I used to do a ton of in-depth critiquing, and this (...)


      That's trending. Stories disappear from there when they stop growing fast It's called Trending. How long does something last on trending on average? If you get a peak of, say 100 stories (...)


      I fail to see why the site needs another way to see a list of the fictions that already have thousands of followers. Getting 5% of 1K followers to vote will automatically let you beat out 90% of 100 (...)

    10. Re: Less or More?

      My personal opinion is that if you are writing science fiction and/or fantasy, if your average chapter length is around the 1k mark, you're not giving your readers enough information. Thats not to say (...)

    11. Re: MCs of Color?

      Saiph in Soul Forged is black, having grown up upper middle class in the Boulder, CO suburbs

    12. Re: How Do My Metrics Compare?

      Still trying to figure out how to get views. Maybe it's just hard when you aren't writing litrpg ? You likely won't see a big jump until 50k words. Thats about how long it took me to break 30 (...)

    13. Re: Want to get self-inserted into a Gamelit story? Here's your chance!

      How minor will the minor characters be? I ran into an issue when writing episode 02 where I just didn't have enough named antagonists because usernames aren't my strong suit. So when I rewrite (...)

    14. Re: What is the weirdest thing as which you could be reborn into another world and then enter a tournament ar (...)

      I have a draft where a WW2 tank gets magically transported to an ice cave and a little girl brings it to life by dropping a magic crystal inside it when she hides inside it escaping a group of bandits (...)

    15. Re: Writing again

      Welcome back to writing! May your tales be grand and writer's block never approach you.

    16. Re: How Do My Metrics Compare?

      I think it's also important to engage with the community. This is fairly important. Beyond the forums, I don't really engage with the community because I don't have the time. Work is my full time, (...)

    17. Re: I hate litrpgs

      but everyone would agree that SAO is the worst adaptation of LitRPG. I'm about to play devil's advocate here: SAO does one thing better than nearly every other LitRPG out there: It implies that (...)

    18. Re: Litrpg Tips

      My LitRPG uses a class-based system very similar to FFXIV & WoW. Each class serves a different niche (Sentinels are bunker tanks who are hard to kill because of their high resistance stats. Berserkers (...)

    19. Re: I hate litrpgs

      I find them boring, tedious, and usually quite shallow. Believe it or not, I share your assessment and I write litRPG :DrakanLaugh: In any other genre of fantasy, I'd tell people who hit me (...)
