    4. Re: Hello there! New aspiring author here!

      Cover looks great! Welcome to RR - best of luck in gaining a following :) 

    5. Re: This is already better than Wattpad. And Vella.

      Also came from Wattpad - traction here has been so much easier. Of course I don't do romance - so my reach was going to be limited on Wattpad no matter what. Here the limitation is that the fantasy favourite (...)

    7. Re: questions regarding content warnings and tags

      Hit all of those tags. I have a multi-lead two male, one female. I lead with the female, but after reader feedback, I'll be leading with one of the male characters to get the reader onboard with the story (...)

    8. Re: How to write about something i have never experience?

      Research - as so many others have pointed out. Youtube is also a good source for loads of varied 'opinions' on a topic if you need to get a personal feel for a situation/insight - but do try to get varied (...)

    9. Re: What's Up With All the Thumbs Down

      Some people create false accounts to thumb down the reviews they find offensive hoping it gains less notice. It's an ego thing when you see that there's 25 score in any direction on only one review. Personally, (...)

    10. Re: Tips to avoid the dreaded 'slow'

      Reader preference can affect the perspective of what is fast or slow. I do a lot of world building (particularly in chapter 2) but limited it signinficantly as the story progressed. By chapter 22, the (...)

    11. Re: Chapter Length

      I started off by posting my whole chapters (some 10K-15K words) and the length of it was just a turn off to online readers. Since I want to be read, I opted to break down my chapters into parts between (...)

    12. Re: Tagging Abuse

      I really appreciate the warning tag in the chapter. I leaves it to me to decide if the author has the chops to treat the trauma with care or if it's going to be used for shock value (only one of the two (...)

    13. Re: Shoutout

      Thank you Eric - I didn't mean to make it sound like it was sinister or not appreciated. The shout out was arranged, but mostly by sheer luck of having seen the post. It was surprising that my husband (...)

    14. Re: What is your writing-buddy beverage?

      do you mean alcoholic or non-alcoholic? Non-alcoholic. I'm not sure we can get alcoholic apple cider in Canada....but to be fair I never looked.  I don't do alcohol due to the generations of alcoholics (...)

    16. Shoutout

      This morning, I'm moseying up to my PC to get some plotting and drafting done for my up-coming project. I settle in all nice an snug, tea in hand, when I see that my husband has messaged me. This is unusual (...)

    17. Re: Yay Got my First Hurtful Review of a half a Star

      Keep your head up. You know you have grammar issues, just pick up a tip on grammar and practice it for like a week on your writing - you can just focus on new stuff, or you can go over stuff you've written (...)

    18. Re: A "Romantic Subplot" Tag

      I would appreciate this tag. I'm one of those readers who drops a book at the first sign of romance, and that's only because romance has over saturated the genres I love to read - and it's always treated (...)

    19. Re: What is your writing-buddy beverage?

      I drink tea in the morning. I have a can of soda around lunch time, then it's supposed to be just water after that - for the most part i keep to it. But i'll cycle in apple cider or hot chocolate on cold (...)
