    2. Re: British English

      Now, a quick lesson in geography. Britain in separated into 4 parts. London, sheep, high-altitude peat and shite weather. You usually take the train or the coach to get from one part to the next (...)

    4. Re: Structure and Grammar Improvement.

      I had a quick look and my honest suggestion would be to reconsider some of your commas. Some of the sentences feel obnoxiously long. Example below: " As the two stood in complete silence, just out of (...)


    5. Re: Personal gems

      It's a short one but a good one. Frostbite Need more love for short stories on RR.


    6. Re: How recommended is Wheel of Time?

      David Eddings has some nice epic fantasy series that you could try. They're on the shorter side and more easy reading than LotR and Wheel of Time. I greatly enjoyed The Belgariad in my late teens. Still (...)


    7. Re: WHICH BOOK WOULD YOUR CHILDREN PREFER?

      Seconding EnhancedBeing's thoughts on making sure that the reading age is less broad. You need to ensure that you're not just catering to the children that are reading, but also to the adults who are (...)


    8. Re: Liquid lighter than air?

      You could look into the Leidenfrost effect. It's not strictly a liquid being less dense than air but it is pretty cool to see. Unfortunately, under standard Earth conditions, it's not possible for liquids (...)


    9. Re: Favorite words?

      spaghettification I have yet to use it in any written text... but I just love the word.


    10. Re: Does naming chapters really make a difference?

      My story "comfort blanket" only has 2 chapters but I can confirm that I've noticed a noticeable spike in views since changing from "01, 02" to named chapters. The view count is still tiny but it was great (...)



    11. Re: Evil Genie

      I wish I had enough money to buy a new router Granted. A crime syndicate accidentally deposits funds in your account and your account is locked, pending investigation. Good luck explaining your (...)


    12. Re: Giving out [Free] reviews

      If you have any spare time, I wouldn't mind if you had a quick perusal of mine. Either - your choice. There's not much to read through, regardless of which you choose. I'm not too fussed about having (...)


    13. Re: Present your story with a terrible, oversimplified blurb.

      Hah, I already presented my story with a terrible, oversimplified blurb: "The only thing scarier than being alone in the dark, is not being alone in the dark."


    14. Re: I would kill for the ability to freeze time, literally.

      Let's say for now that the frozen time can be controlled and unfreeze things interacting with the subject in question (me) at will (consciously and unconsciously so I won't have to think about unfreezing (...)


    15. Re: I would kill for the ability to freeze time, literally.

      Just stay away from physicists who may inform you that time is simply an illusion. It's a cheaper option than paying to freeze it, but it comes with its own drawbacks. And if you are short on time, (...)


    16. Re: Words

      What I meant was that when you see words you don't know and you look up their meaning, you stop reading the book. And as an author I think that anything that takes the reader's attention away from the (...)


    17. Re: Words

      It's just my opinion that words you don't know can detract from the story because now you're wondering what that word meant and not what's happening in the story. Would it not also detract from (...)


    18. Re: Words

      I just wanted to stop in here to say that some of us psychopaths enjoy seeing and learning new words. It was one of my favourite things about the Lemony Snickett 'series of unfortunate events' books. (...)


    19. Re: Looking for 'humans through Alien eyes' stories

      It starts as a transcript but quickly builds into more. Lots of back and forth between alien and human POVs. Hopefully it's close to what you were looking for - I know I'm enjoying reading it. Transcripts (...)
