    1. Re: So What is Everyone Up To?

      Drafted 2K words today. Words that required very heavy research. Research that shouldn't have been nearly as hard as it was to gather. We're still going to go and see if we can finish drafting this (...)


    2. Re: Realizing I'm better at First Person POV than Third Person POV.

      Same here! Imagine being about 30K words into your story when you realize you're better at first person, and then rewriting the entire thing because of it. Good times. :DrakanWine:


    3. Re: Words and Phrases that authors should avoid.

      If you write first person and you follow this advice, then you're going to be on track to write a really bad first person story. Anyone that is writing first person. Do not follow this advice. It will (...)


    4. Re: Asking for something ridiculous!

      Following what Asviloka said about getting better yourself so you don't pay an arm and leg: If you want to get better, then write a 30K word story. When you're at 30K, then get feedback from someone that (...)


    5. Re: "There's nothing new under the sun..."

      Heartstone is pretty unique we'd have to say. We don't read a terrible amount, but our own story: - Has the point of view of a physical and emotional bully. - The physical bully is a girl. - Focuses (...)


    6. Re: Review without a hook for fresh stories.

      We offer up Even in Chains! Up to chapter 10 right now and our first story. 


    7. Re: What is the y'all's opinions of flashbacks.

      We are writing a story about dealing with PTSD. That means flashbacks. For Flashbacks, we use this sort of formatting. --- Very short flashback. --- We scatter flashbacks throughout the story (...)


    8. Re: How do you write a character's thoughts?

      When we write character thoughts. We separate them onto their own line. We write them exactly like this post is formatted. With the space included. We intentionally don't allow for narrative dialogue (...)


    9. Re: What would your fiction's title be if it was a japanese light novel?

      We think this works best for this story. 'That Time I Gave My Subconscious A Body And Voice And Now It Talks To Me.' Or T.T.I.G.M.S.A.B.A.V.A.N.I.T.T.M.


    10. Re: Tell me about yourself.

      Name's Vivian, and aside from writing we enjoy playing Go (The board game) We also worked in heating and air for awhile helping with installs and general maintenance, but moving down to the way too (...)


    11. Re: Is this anyone else's writing process?

      1: Think of plot point 2: Draft 3: Edit 4: Edit again 5: Give to critique partners 6: Edit it again 7: Give it to beta readers 8: Edit it one more time 9: Post That is the flow for almost all (...)


    12. Re: Tell me about yourself.

      Name's Vivian, and aside from writing we enjoy playing Go (The board game) We also worked in heating and air for awhile helping with installs and general maintenance, but moving down to the way too hot (...)


    13. Re: Long or Short Chapters?

      Anywhere from 3K to 5K and maybe a bit above, but we also post once a week.


    14. Re: I Have YouTude Channel That Does Web Novel Reviews, Is Any Interested

      That depends. What kind of stories do you not want to review?


    15. Re: Can you love yourself? Can anyone?

      It's not nearly as complicated as you make it sound. If you accept facts about yourself you may find uncomfortable. If you embrace those aspects. If you understand them and use them to grow. Then (...)


    16. Re: Is there a place to post more serious web novels?

      Thank you everyone! We'd go through and respond to each one but that would be a huge wall, but we do want to say that we're not giving up. Far from it actually. We were just getting discouraged when we (...)


    17. Re: Best/Worst review that gave you the kick in the pants you needed to make your story better.

      My friend's review was the good one, and probably saved me from a lot of embarrassment that would have happened if I accepted my mom's review as truth and had submitted it to the neopian times. (...)


    18. Is there a place to post more serious web novels?

      We do love Royal Road and we're going to continue being active here, but if we're being honest with ourselves, then our story is way outside the target audience for this site. We've been trying to find (...)


    19. Re: Best/Worst review that gave you the kick in the pants you needed to make your story better.

      This was back when we very first started writing. We were in a writing discord when we submitted some of our earlier work and it was very much rough draft level despite going through it and trying to edit (...)


    20. Re: September Thread - Promote your Story

      Are you interested in a more emotional novel that focuses on healing from traumatic events for multiple characters? Do you want a story that covers darker themes than most other stories go into? Do you (...)
