    2. 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 (...)

    3. 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 (...)

    4. 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 (...)

    5. Re: Writing again

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

    6. 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, (...)

    7. 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 (...)

    8. 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 (...)

    9. 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 (...)

    10. Re: Realism. How much do we really want?

      I agree, that's actually why the unbreakable laws in the fic I'm writing were the first things I brainstormed. I feel like litRPG is a genre with a lot of potential, but it's too easy to start relying (...)

    11. Re: why can't i as a male reader enjoy stories with a female main character?

      It's hard to write realistic female characters if you don't see things from the female perspective too often. Maybe it's my philosophy on how I write my characters, but I've never struggled with (...)

    12. Re: So whats going on here?

      Time for a stealth mission while they're distracted. This'll be a danger close operation. We have any volunteers? What are you planning??? ASKING QUESTIONS COUNTS AS VOLUNTEERING, NO TAKEBACKSIES. (...)

    14. Re: Oh yeah, it's all coming together...

      I'm writing the next chapter in my story and then I started drafting the following chapter because it started to hit me. Y'all ever have those moments where you've set up a lot of plot points and they (...)

    15. Re: What would your fiction be called if it were a super long Light Novel title.

      I have the perfect name but it's gonna spoil the clifhanger for episode 03 So I'm just gonna go with That time me and millions of people got reincarnated as warriors to fight an evil god in an MMO (...)

    16. Re: Isekaied MCs

      Overall I think it's just a very complicated topic to write about. At least, if you want to do it well. Besides that, there are large demographics that simply don't like psychological themes. They want (...)

    17. Re: What is your favorite POV?

      Third person, past tense. For both reading & writing. Though I'm toying with writing a certain character's POV in first person. I don't have much experience writing it, which is why I personally stay away (...)

    18. Re: Writing an interesting serial with no action at all: Is it plausible? Have you seen it done?

      the norm for web serials (even ones that aren't fantasy or don't have game elements) is at least a short fight in every chapter so the audience doesn't get bored. I don't have a fight every chapter. (...)

    19. Re: Pitfalls of a LitRPG

      Third - mind control powers. This includes memory altering, but also 'charm', 'taunt', 'calm' and the like to a lesser extent. Mind control is very hard to have in a story without it messing things up. (...)
