1. Re: On the Subject of Ratings and Reviews; Or, How I lost the motivation to write following a bad rating

      I respect the arguments made in in argumentum of my original post. Of course I shouldn't be writing for the sake of approval, that would imply that I started out with an inflated sense of importance. However, (...)

    2. Re: On the Subject of Ratings and Reviews; Or, How I lost the motivation to write following a bad rating

      You have tons of glowing ratings and reviews, and you let ONE 2.5 stop you in your creative tracks?  Listen, you have to cultivate the virtue of spite.  I’m an artist. I’m an artist who has and does (...)

      I also think there should be an LGBTQ+ tag 

    4. Re: How big is your backlog of ideas?

    5. What are some settings you’d like to see more of in stories?

      Can be anything—a type of planet, type of environment, time period, dimension, a duck, anything goes! I’ll start  -endless, labyrinthine indoor spaces where if you look out a window, all you see is (...)

      You know, many digital artists are mad because ai art. This is so funny. I can feel their pain. I’m a digital artist with a buttload of digital artist friends and exactly one (1) of them is mad about (...)

    10. Re: Guide on how to support authors

      I do almost all my reading on kindle unlimited.  I thought, and recently checked, that authors got $1,000 if 100 people read 100 pages.  That is what I still found as information a couple days ago.  Someone (...)

    13. Re: The Unpopular Views

      I think it’s really sad (and honestly, weird) that the act of dreaming is not more significant to more people. I mean, we (or at least, a lot of us) can experience whole other worlds in our heads, every (...)

    14. Re: Anyone else feel unexpected relief when their time on rising was finally over?

      My Rising Stars experience was pretty nice.  I think this is because I never made it to the front page. I feel like that was actually kind of ideal. Got lots of great new readers, and the haters just (...)

    19. Re: Is there a market for/interest in Royal Road "misfit" stories?

      I've been told a few times that stories like mine have no place on this site, which of course motivated me to write and post even more. With the help of some of the cooler authors (via shout-outs) and (...)

    20. Re: Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be dungeons 🎵

      Well, in the world of Stonesong you gotta hold a bunch of hands to become a dungeon and as everyone knows, that is very very lewd.  I cannot believe this! You actually have the audacity to talk about... (...)
