1. Re: Dialogue Tags: Alternatives to "said"

      I use "said and" a lot. The 'and' being a way to add some sort of action or just more to the dialogue. Usually this makes 'said' invisible anyway so I think it's fine :3

    2. Re: What makes a story interesting or boring?

      This is a vague but simple answer: For a story to be interesting it has to have some sort of tension. (It really wouldn't be much of a story without it)

    3. Re: Fight Scene Anatomy

      Imo, for a fic on paper, if the result is all that matters and not the fight itself, then make it quick. Under five moves even! You can dive into details if the fight is under five moves or you can just (...)

    4. Re: Writing an action/fight scene with non-human characters

      Well, if you want to be more realistic, I'd do research, watch how wolves... or dogs... actually fight (usually it's in packs/groups and with teeth). Otherwise it's going to be your imagination vs making (...)

    5. Re: Attractive characters in fiction

      Less is more when it comes to attractive characters. I agree with this. I find no harm in giving them one or a few defining or specific features that stand out to lean in a certain direction (like the (...)

    12. Re: What makes characters memorable?

      There are MANY variables to this and I think a lot of it has to do with personal preferences on the readers end and execution on the author's end. However, here's just a few things I can think of off (...)

    18. Re: Most difficult part of the story to write?
