      I asked my wife to tell me a joke for this thread because I couldn't think of one... "Your face." ~Ostensibly a loving caring wife


    2. Re: Awesome Cover Art - Which Version should I use?

      I like those that have the central character pop. The color saturation that draws my attention with going cartoonish or being harsh on the eyes. Second from the left top row. Would be better if the (...)


    3. Re: What are the essential elements of litrpg?

      If I may, it's a beard. One does not know when a shaved face becomes a full beard. The exact number of hairs or length can not be determined. We still know that bearded faces exist as much as clean (...)


    4. Re: Recommend me your stories of 2022!

      Not a self promotion  Gauntlet of Egg Consistent blend of world building, character exposure/development, and plot progression. MC doesn't just start out weak but mentally weak. In this case it (...)

    6. Re: Advertise your story by telling us about it's magic system

      There's magic to the abducted Earthlings which is everything. Their souls have organs grafted to them that use willpower to produce effects... The natives of the new world they know that magic is based (...)


    7. Re: Give a shoutout to a minor character in your story that didn't get enough screentime, in your opinion

      A drink to Revelry, for making everyone underestimate his goblenslayer-esque dedication by a vernier of debauchery.


    8. Re: If given enough time to prepare, Batman could easily defeat Goku

      Batman found a way to beat Superman. Goku is just anime Superman with a more clearly defined power limit. So Batman could find multiple ways to kill him. Goku is not that OP considering he nearly died (...)


    9. Re: Everyone make a wish; poster below you has to twist it to ruin your life then make one of their own

      Your lungs are so powerful at holding your breath that they must hold your breath. Underwater or elsewhere. You suffocate with your breath forever trapped within. I wish everyone could heal from any (...)


    10. Re: What are some unusual stories on Royal Road?

      Henry Rider: Clown Hunter It's on my read later list. But 'unusual' is exactly why I put it there. Let me know if I need to bump it into the read now category would ya?


    11. Re: how do you guys write a good dialogue in your story?

      What helped me best was an exercise where you write three characters and use no dialog tags ("he said," "She replied," etc) Even if you use dialog tags not needing to is always better. A lot of making (...)


    12. Re: Authors, what is your drop off rate in views?

      About half of my chapter one viewers dropped off before chapter 6 Half of those made it to chapter 50 which was a poor production time for me with life-events I haven't quite arrived at normal since (...)


    13. Re: Contribution Points

      Not what you asked for, just a few thoughts anyway, The process is comparable to minting a new currency and backing the currency with goods the students will find valuable. Mechanisms in real-world and (...)


    14. Re: Writing a character's explaination of their backstory

      If you want to capture the character's voice and emotions particularly well write it in first person. Given you write in third there will have to be some editing, but you have a strong template of voice (...)


    15. Re: A list of great but underappreciated stories

      Recommend hyperlinking the recommendations. Highlight a section of text then use the "Insert a link" tool in the banner.


    16. Re: What chapter # on RR is the end of book 2 of Legend of Randidly Ghostbound?

      <10% of book 1 then a big skip to the newest chapters. (...)


    17. Re: Do you listen to music as you write?

      Yeah, I need to get premium for pandora so the adds stop breaking me out of the groove. Raw cringy stuff. Nickleback, Evanescence, FFDP. I added in Lindsey Stirling recently and it was the best idea (...)

    19. Re: How to describe a character that is attractive from a first person perspective?

      Lots of options. "Maybe I could set up 'b' with 'x' relative of mind, 'a' thought. 'X' always did like the type" Maybe highlight the relationship 'a' has with their own appearance. Using a comparison. (...)


    20. Re: Warning if you're trying to get your system apocalypse story onto amazon right now

      I get that he's trying to create a shared author universe. That brand based business would rely on marketing that did not allow others to impersonate the authors he signed a contract with... So there (...)
