    1. Re: A Simple Way to Start (Turning Your Ideas into a Story)

      Over the last few weeks I've gotten a bunch of questions about where to start with writing a story so I thought I'd make a video about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khxvvFzrA1Y In the video (...)


    2. Re: Lit-RPG Readers & Writers, I Need Your Advice!

      Everything that ZachSkye posted above is great. Way of the Shaman got me into writing GameLit. Since then, I've had so much fun I've published 5 novels and I'm working on my 6th. As far as tropes go, (...)


    3. Re: What to do if your story sucks...

      This topic came up in the comments on my YouTube channel so I thought I would make a video about it. Because it might be useful for those writing on RR, I thought I'd post it here. As always, here is the (...)


    4. Re: Writing Under Stress - Tips for being productive during this insane time

      https://www.sethring.com/img/link/21thumb.png Video Link: https://youtu.be/mEViYBNyvjY 2020 can be over any time it wants to. Seriously, I won't mind. Until then, creatives have to live with (...)


    5. Re: How to Get a Good Cover for your Story

      I've been looking around for a new cover artist because typography is my mortal weakness. I've inquired with germancreative and given her your name, so hopefully it goes well! She has been nothing (...)


    6. Re: How to Get a Good Cover for your Story

      This week's video answers a question from one of my readers. How do I get my covers? I thought it would be fun to go over the three different ways that I've gotten covers for the Titan Series.  http://sethring.com/img/5Books.png (...)


    7. Re: 3 Reasons Your Story Sucks (and what to do about it)

      Not sure how much I agree with the first one. By that metric, Titus Groan and Gormenghast would be terrible novels instead of arguably the best fantasy novels ever written. The rest is solid advice, (...)


    8. Re: 3 Reasons Your Story Sucks (and what to do about it)

      I made another video. This time on common problems that writers have that make our stories suck. My videos are typically around 6 minutes long, so if you have a bit of time check it out! You'll also find (...)


    9. Re: Brainstorming Ideas For Your Story

      To be honest, I usually paint or draw whenever I have a new story in mind. That is why my DeviantArt page is full of sketches and small excerpts of nonexistent tales. But I always feel guilty for neglecting (...)


    10. Re: Brainstorming Ideas For Your Story

      Ahem, any cure for having too many ideas and too little time to write them down? Cause I have in my head at least 5 stories ready to pop on paper, and not enough time to bring them outside of my brain. (...)


    11. Re: Brainstorming Ideas For Your Story

      Hi friends! I just posted a video on how to generate new ideas when you simply run out of ideas - Video Link If you don't want to read this long post just click on the video above for two practical (...)


    12. Re: How to get a good edit for FREE

      As a number of people have pointed out here, there is a limit to what a machine checker can do.  Regarding the liberal use of commas that Grammarly encourages, I don't know that it is wrong. Certainly (...)


    13. Re: How to get a good edit for FREE

      Good editing makes or breaks a story. But good editing can be expensive. Like most people, I had no money to pay for editing. So, instead, I figured out a way to get a good edit for absolutely free. (...)


    14. Re: 3 Basic Rules for Worldbuilding

      One thing I like in creating the brushstroke parts of a world is examining how the world has changed over a certain period of time. Why is the world the way it is now? Well, it used to be different and (...)


    15. Re: 3 Basic Rules for Worldbuilding

      The third one's really good.  Mine: If you write fantasy with multiple fantasy races, don't forget that even a single race is likely to have several languages and cultures unless there's a good reason (...)


    16. Re: 3 Basic Rules for Worldbuilding

      Hi friends, today I want to share a video I made on Worldbuilding.  There are few things greater than getting to explore an immersive world and building such a world is the dream of every writer. Plus, (...)


    17. Re: Can You Make a Living From Writing? || AMA with an indie author

      Cool video. What was your strategy on Wattpad? And what are the most important differences to Royal Road in terms of strategy? How did you edit your book? A professional editor is extremely expensive. (...)


    18. Re: Can You Make a Living From Writing? || AMA with an indie author

      They say the quality of the book cover is important for marketing. What advice would you give somebody with no artistic/graphic design skills?  I made my cover on a site called Canva, and while it (...)


    19. Re: Can You Make a Living From Writing? || AMA with an indie author

      Tnank you for the video!  I have two questions: What were some of the things that you did in order to attract readers and build that base, specifically here? What were some of the numbers that you (...)


    20. Re: Can You Make a Living From Writing? || AMA with an indie author

      Awesome! One more question that I just thought of: do you know roughly (percentage-wise) how many new readers you reached when you started posting on Amazon as opposed to the free formats? Or, in (...)
