    1. Re: This is embarrassing, but what is style and personality in writing?

      That's a broad question. I don't know if I can answer it, but I can certainly shine my humble flashlight at it. I'm going to focus on personality first, and I guess if you want I can follow up with style. (...)


    2. Re: Giving out [Free] reviews

      Hey, thanks for the review. I appreciate the kindness!


    3. Re: Novel Word Count

      No--my one interaction with a literary agent was a lot of whistle and no bang, unfortunately. But I think that does make sense. A publishing house has a few layers of filter before your paper gets into (...)


    4. Re: Novel Word Count

      I have heard that "new" authors shouldn't make their first book more than 60,000 words. Its harder to market or something along that line. Going by that logic, should I be aiming to make my first (...)


    5. Re: Trying Again, With A New Novel!

      I am writing a new novel after I kind of failed in my first one. I have decided as that is my most favourite story that I actually want to write, I will gain some experience with my other ideas. I have (...)

    7. Re: So, what’re your routines?

      So, what rituals do you guys have to put you into the writing mood? Playlists? A special place? Some sort of blood sacrifice? Oh, do tell! I try not to write with music. I find it distracting. (...)


    8. Re: Giving out [Free] reviews

      Hey, I'd love to have feedback on my Trials of the Lion (linked below). It is a collection of short, interconnected stories that follow Ulrem the Lionborn. From my fiction page: BEHOLD THE COMING (...)

    10. Re: My novel is officially a "novel"! Hit the 60,000 word minimum

      A novel is anything over 40k. But the truth is, before the mass market paper back, novels were even shorter. Nowadays we use that stupid word "novella" that most people don't know. I don't do that. (...)

    12. Re: My novel is officially a "novel"! Hit the 60,000 word minimum

      Thanks guys! It's been...closer to a decade than not since I made it this far into a manuscript. 


    13. Re: Recommend me your story!

      Real heroes are the ones who take up a job no one wants to do, and get it done no matter the risk. Ulrem the Slayer might one day be that type of hero, but he has ghosts to master, first. My story is (...)


    14. Re: Paradise Lost: What an old book can teach about describing cool fantasy armaments

      Honestly poetry has helped me so much. Can't agree more! Though I'm no poet, The classics have taught me much. They live in my work. I would never have believed it as a high school, or even (...)


    15. Re: Writing Books

      I know it's a broad subject, sorry. So here's my problem, I've been writing this book, but I've begun to lose interest in it. Whenever I daydream, it's not about how I can progress my book, but about (...)


    16. Re: I wrote my second draft! Now how the heck do I overwrite and schedule all of it...?

      Is the book already posted, and you're talking about editing what has been posted on RR?


    17. My novel is officially a "novel"! Hit the 60,000 word minimum

      Quick context; I'm writing two series at once. One is available here on RR, The Trials of the Lion, which is a collection of short stories about Ulrem the Lionborn, a hero set in a bronze age fantasy with (...)



    18. Re: Wendt here! I write g̶o̶o̶d̶ ⠀i̶n̶t̶e̶r̶e̶s̶t̶i̶n̶g̶ ⠀passable(?) stories.

      Salutations! The pandemic (and other misfortunes) also forced me back into the writing groove. Out of curiosity, did the 2,000 words per day seem unsustainable because of lifestyle limitations, or was (...)
