    1. Re: How do you keep going?

      It does get better. I got my first drive-by half star bomb a little over a week ago after someone only "read" the first chapter. I put read in quotes because I'm not sure they even did that much. That (...)


    2. Re: Made it to rising stars!

      READ THIS MAN'S STORY PEOPLE. Thanks, Pickle! Likewise, everyone read The Future That Never Was, it’s freakin delightful. 


    3. Re: Writers with awesome covers: where do you go to get them made?

      Thank you all for the suggestions! I've certainly got a lot to look at and consider and a whole other art threat to dive into, which I somehow didn't know existed until now.


    4. Made it to rising stars!

      There I am, right at the bottom! I'm extremely stoked and slightly nervous at having a larger audience. Up until two weeks ago probably six people in my life have read any of my work.  Just thought (...)


    5. Re: Writers with awesome covers: where do you go to get them made?

      I have two artists who I go to frequently. But the first basic question is, what is your cover budget? I don't have a particular budget in mind as I don't know how to gauge how much good covers (...)


    6. Re: Writers with awesome covers: where do you go to get them made?

      If you’re interested in paying a reasonable price for a custom or premade cover, I do both! Examples are in my signature and in this thread (which are all a very different style than the ones in my signature, (...)


    7. Writers with awesome covers: where do you go to get them made?

      The cover for my story is something I made myself, but I'm looking at getting a new one to hopefully catch more eyes and describe the overall tone of my story better.  So where do you recommend I go (...)


    8. Re: Sunday Snippet 06/02 | Week 28 🐯🎇

      From my LitRPG The Island Tastes Like Chicken, specifically Chapter 15 - Attack of the Gnomes. Context: The MC, Ben, has just been ambushed by a creepy undead gnome, and after a harrowing description (...)


    9. Re: February Thread - Promote your Story

      The Island Tastes Like Chicken "Raccoons are the worst. Not because they get into your trash, but because they cause plane crashes. At least thats how Ben felt as he washed up on the shores of Killjoy (...)


    10. This forum tastes like... chicken!

      The Island Tastes Like Chicken "Raccoons are the worst. Not because they get into your trash, but because they cause plane crashes. At least that's how Ben felt as he washed up on the shores of Killjoy (...)


    11. People who read Slice-of-Life: Why?

      I recently started writing a slice of life story (not the one in my sig) without having read much in the way of that genre before, and I find I'm... really liking it. I'm not sure how I would feel about (...)


    12. Re: Free Reviews and Recommendations

      Hey Consistent Milk, I'm interested in your experimental review for my story The Island Tastes Like Chicken, if you have the time for it!


    13. Re: Software/App for keeping track of story notes

      Like Zach Skye mentioned, Google Spreadhseets/Sheets is a good tool to use for anything regarding numbers and a complex weaving of abilities/powers/spells. I've used it for all sorts of things and have (...)


    14. Re: Will Provide Detailed Feedback in Return for a Shout-out

      I already responded to your other thread about the review swap but I'd love to do this too! I only have a small following, however, as I started posting my first story a couple of days ago. If you'd still (...)


    15. Re: ✂️Sunday Snippet 23/01 | WEEK 26 ✍🏽

      Context: Ben has just recounted the events of the crash that led him to Killjoy Island. Needless to say, he's pretty miffed.  And that’s where I am now. Not hell, exactly. A good several leagues above, (...)


    16. Promote Your Story - First Sentences

      Sometimes it's the first sentence that makes or breaks a story for a reader. For the story in my signature, it's: "I was thinking about raccoons when the plane crashed." So what's everyone's (...)


    17. Re: What introduced you to RR?

      For me it was Reddit. Someone mentioned The Wandering Inn in r/fantasy and I was curious so I checked it out and found everything else that was on here. Wait, The Wandering Inn's on here? I thought (...)


    18. Re: What introduced you to RR?

      For me it was Reddit. Someone mentioned The Wandering Inn in r/fantasy and I was curious so I checked it out and found everything else that was on here.


    19. Re: Putting myself out there!

      Hope this helps, once I finish writing book 3 I am totally going to get back to working my way through my read later list. 😅 It does, thanks for all the suggestions! Looks like I'll be backlogged (...)


    20. Re: Why do You Read LitRPG and/or Isekai?

      For your first point: how is that different from setting, say the basis of a magic system in a fantasy world? Since it sounds like you're leaning into LitRPG with talk about a system, wouldn't it be (...)
