    1. Re: Scheduling a new story

      As far as I know, there is no way to schedule a yet-unapproved story. I ran into the same issue with my current story HUD: Wargame. The way the submission process works, you only submit the first chapter, (...)

    2. Re: 100k words!

      100k is a huge milestone to hit and something to be proud of for sure! Here's to the next 100k words and beyond!  :DrakanWine:

    3. Re: A year of Descent.

      I don't think I've ever seen a fiction with that few chapters get that many reviews. Well done! And good job persevering this long.

    4. Re: What's your favorite thing about your story?

      My favorite thing about what I'm currently writing, HUD: Wargame, is that it's a five-part series where each new book builds so much upon the last one. I have the series already planned out in my head (...)

    5. Re: Is your antagonist really "evil"?

      When my antagonists appear, they won't really be "evil" at all. Just characters/forces with goals that clash with the protagonists. Ultimately, everyone in the series, protag to antag, will just be trying (...)

    6. Re: The roots of RR's popular fiction

      I've been trying to crack this site's "meta" for about a year now. I think I find the answer and then it doesn't pan out quite how I envisioned it. In the end, I've learned to write what I want and hope (...)

    7. Re: So I’m confused

      It determines your ranking compared to other stories on Royal Road. The lower the number the better. The lowest I ever got was in the 2300s I believe. There's a Top 100 list, Top 50, etc. From what (...)

    8. Re: Am I a fool, or a genius?

      It depends entirely on if the twist is earned. Does the behavior of all the characters involved make sense? Do they have a reason for doing it? Walter White in Breaking Bad, for example, does quite a few (...)

    9. Re: I just discovered Royal Road

      Welcome to Royal Road! I can say there is definitely a wealth of stories on here, plenty of them with binge-able levels of content. I would check out the Best Completed list if you want something to tear (...)

    10. What does your protagonist want the most?

      Protagonist motivations haven't always come easy to me. In a low fantasy series I wrote way back when, my multiple protagonists wanted power, respect, or just to survive. The protagonist of my last book/series (...)

    11. Re: 100 views on my first fic!

      Well done! It's always fun to see your fiction hit a new threshold like going from double digits to triple digits. Here's to quadruple digits and beyond!  :DrakanWine:

    12. Re: Villain Motivations

      (Spoilers for the TV series Supernatural) I thought it was amazing that the show turned Chuck/God into the final villain of the series. Makes perfect thematic sense with everything Sam and Dean have (...)

    13. Re: FREE Reviews to NEW Stories

      Not sure if it's too late to throw my hat in the ring, but HUD: Wargame has four chapters posted as of this reply. (New chapters daily for the next month or so.) I'd be grateful if you'd be willing to (...)

    14. Re: I got my first Follower for my story!

      The greatest, most famous stories on Royal Road all started with a single follower. You should absolutely celebrate! I hope you get many more followers to come so you can look back and say, "Wow, I remember (...)

    15. Re: I Actually Managed to Do My Schedule

      It's tough to keep a schedule, but I think it can be rewarding for a lot of writers! Well done and keep up the good work!  :DrakanWine:

    16. Re: Is it Possible to Publish too Much?

      Posting frequency and posting time can both be factors, although there are probably countless other factors we'll never know about and can't control. To sum up some advice I got: daily posting is ideal (...)

    17. Re: A wild poke- Newbie author appeared!

      Welcome! Hope you enjoy your stay!  :DrakanWine:

      Congratulations! That's some excellent progress you've made already. Here's to the next thousand views and the next 10,000 words!  :DrakanWine:
