    1. Re: What is the end game of slice of life

      There isn't an end game in slice of life stories. They generally just portray the day to day lives of people. Soap operas are essentially slice of life, if rather exaggerated. Most generally end on some (...)


    2. Re: Most success stories on RR go like this: they posted 7 days a week, then slowed down to 5. Got a question (...)

      Oh, so posting every day almost guarantees getting on Rising stars. Thank you for the info! Too bad I can't write that fast, it takes me hours to write 1.5k words. Guess I should've waited to have (...)


    3. Re: Scribble Hub Sabotage

      Yea, I noticed that. They also seem sex heavy on that site. I mean, nothing wrong with a story having sex in it, but Jesus, some of the stuff I've seen. Lol. I mean, my fanfiction is very sex heavy, (...)

      rising stars is a lot more forgiving to get on than the previous "trending" page which was extremely cut-throat and basically decided your story from the get-go, so you can get on rising stars with (...)


    5. Re: Adding word count information to each chapter

      ...but with webnovels you're almost locked into reading everything. I don't know that I really agree with that. Most webnovel chapters are the equivalent of at least a few pages. I think it's even (...)


    6. Re: Adding word count information to each chapter

      Thanks for the comments! This helped me more than I expected. First post, so wasn't sure what to expect. This site has a very friendly community :) For the most part. There are a few dumb*sses on here (...)


    7. Re: Adding word count information to each chapter

      Some people may like that. I always look at the webpage scrollbar to determine the length of a chapter. If it's big then the chapter is short, and if it's small the chapter is long. For me the longer the (...)


    8. Re: Do you prefer starts or ends to series?

      I  can't exactly say I prefer one over the other, but what I can say is that most authors don't know how to take a story past 500 chapters(give or take a 100 or so). A lot of Progression/litrpg authors (...)


    9. Re: How do you feel about multiple changes of perspective during a chapter?

      It can be done. In my experience most people fail when they try and do it. If you're capable of creating smooth and easily understood transitions, which if your readers aren't having any problems with (...)


    10. Re: English names in Eastern Novels

      It kind of depends. When an Eastern novel is being translated and they give every single character the most generic Western names out there then it really takes me out of the story. If they're just giving (...)


    11. Re: Support Tickets

      damn. you reall just necroed a old thread. We have a full blown Lich King on our hands here. Five years. :DrakanLaugh:


    12. Re: Why do people read chapters out of order?

      I think people are misunderstanding how the view counter works. It's *not* tracking the number of times the chapter was read; it's tracking the number of times the page was loaded. A page can be loaded (...)


    13. Re: Killing Off Characters

      Have any of you had this issue before?  The entire comic book industry has this issue. :DrakanMoney:


    14. Re: Why do people read chapters out of order?

      Sometimes when I'm reading a story that I enjoy overall but that is bogged down in the same thing for a long time I look ahead to see when it ends. Both to see if I should go to bed or keep reading, or (...)


    15. Re: Create a system of measurements for a fictional world or use an established system?

      Whenever an author starts making up their own unit of measurements I just wish I could slap the sh*t out of them. I'm not going to take the time to learn some made up measurement standards, so if you use (...)


    16. Re: Very few readers. Struggling to take off

      What everyone else said, but also, many people will check out the first chapter or two and if they find it interesting they'll put it in their "Read Later." Especially if it's something that only updates (...)


    17. Re: Your opinions about book covers

      My opinion is in my sig I like your covers a lot. Especially Altura's Defiance.


    18. Re: Your opinions about book covers

      Dunno tbh, but I think my new one is damn rad. I'm not saying your old one was bad, but yeah, your new one is much better.


    19. Re: Your opinions about book covers

      While I’m super visual and cover art is really important to me, I agree with everything else here. Relatively basic covers with no art are better than covers with bad art.  I say it's not that important (...)


    20. Re: Your opinions about book covers

      I appreciate a good cover art, but it's not that important to me. There's only 2 things I don't like to see used as cover art, photos and art that looks like it was drawn by a 5 year old. Poor drawing (...)
