    1. Re: Most interesting story line ideas?

      Isekai, multi-verse, witches -- in space. At least, that's the idea for my summer serial. I plan to put my main novel on hiatus until September (when my child goes back to school) while focusing on a more (...)


    2. Re: What is the most unlikeable character you have ever written?

      I am a big believer in the whole "Make your villains likable" theory, because it gives them more depth and purpose. I have never been a big fan of the "Evil guy is evil just to be evil" trope.  (...)


    3. Re: "Message me if you want me to remove the cover" - why?

      It seems that if they are using an image with a note saying "Message me if you want me to take it down" they are aware it isn't alright to take images without permission. Perhaps the kindest thing is for (...)


    4. Re: What is the most unlikeable character you have ever written?

      Currently, Sig. He's obsessed with the creation story of the genetically superior species he belongs to and how to make them even better/look human so they can infiltrate Human society. He's so absorbed (...)

    6. Re: Is there a place for other genres than LitRPG on RoyalRoad?

      Yeah, even my super-niche story has more than 3 readers, lol. If you build it, they will come.


    7. Re: Is there a place for other genres than LitRPG on RoyalRoad?

      I'm going to plug away at my dystopian drama in space with a healthy dose of space opera and queer characters regardless of whether there's a place for it now. There will never be a place for it if I don't (...)


    8. Re: A cruel joke friend told me about authors

      I would argue many people write because we do/need to take pills. Feelings go in, they build up, and they come out--for some people they come out into stories other people read so they can feel their feelings (...)


    9. Re: Why do some sci-fi authors feel the need to describe everything in insane detail?

      As most people have pointed out, it's a stylistic choice on the part of the author. I consume science fiction like it's going out of style. If you pick up a book by Andy Weir, you'd better be prepared (...)


    10. Re: Harem but Incest also good, actually... please give me incest

      "I won't never like it."  QUICK! HE OK-ED IT! POST THE YURI TRAIN! Does women loving women where the relationship is important but romance isn't the goal of the story count as a part of the Yuri (...)


    11. Re: Where are you from, wrong answers only

      A place that apparently never stops burning.


    12. Re: Unlikely lines to be spoken by your character.

      “I think I’ll just go back home, settle down and live the quiet life, and never try to force my will on the Universe again,” said exactly 0 of my characters.



    13. Re: Good ideas and the consequences

      That might not work so well for web novels, if you've already published that chapter. In that case, there's the Impossible Plan. You think to yourself, "Okay, it's impossible; but if it were possible, (...)


    14. Re: Best way to describe common body gestures that occur when a character redirects its attention to another (...)

      Writing advices are hard. I've read everywhere that we should keep our tags as minimalist as possible. Using "bla bla bla," said XXXX, and not saying where the character looks, if he pauses or sight. (...)


    15. Re: You Lot Saw the Announcement?

      I see no problems with asking people to comment, vote, rate, recommend, share, do promote you or support/engage with you in some way, just as I don't see a problem in opting out of it completely. It becomes (...)


    16. Re: Good ideas and the consequences

      Writing yourself into a corner is a great writerly tradition. As others have said, give yourself space and time in the future so you won't have to scramble for a solution. Some of the best twists and (...)


    17. Re: The Moment You've Been Waiting For! Mama Duck Photo!

      Such sweet bunnies!!! I'm glad the eggs hatched and I hope she comes by to show off at some time.


    18. Re: Cover Opinions/Thoughts?

      I love the second cover because it tells me about the story. My biggest concern is the font will be hard to read in the smaller size, though not too hard when it's blown up.


    19. Re: The Moment You've Been Waiting For! Mama Duck Photo!

      Your pond is adorable. I hope Pokey Duck finds it interesting.
