    1. Re: I'm going to write some stories with flat characters that have almost no descriptions!

      I wouldn't say I'm using "flat" characters, but I'm keeping things like physical attributes and ethnicity (of the human main characters) non-descript to try and keep th I used the word "flat" for two (...)


    2. Re: My friend and me aren’t on speaking terms because of an arc I wrote.

      For one, he believed Oda wrote the Alabasta arc based on the Iraq War. While I’ve known some fans thinking this, it’s such a huge stretch considering what the arc’s conflict really was. Does he or any (...)


    3. Re: My friend and me aren’t on speaking terms because of an arc I wrote.

      UPDATE: He apologized, but only on Discord because he plans to not see me for a while. His mother’s a Covid victim, so I guess he’s got full hands. While my friend took back most of what he said, he (...)


    4. Re: My friend and me aren’t on speaking terms because of an arc I wrote.

      That really sucks. I was actually worried about the same thing, as the next arc for my story is a literal invasion by a neighboring country. Of course, I finished planning it some time last year, but I (...)


    5. Re: This is torture

      You're ignoring half the video again in that response part Response: Youtube link about how writers should definitely read terrible stories. No extra context given outside the video. No, I'm not. It (...)


    6. Re: Your favourite character archetype to write ?

      I have a particular love for writing...what has formed into a singular being in my head. One who I want to really write a story around. One who I've secretly been doing so, but keep scrapping for various (...)


    7. Re: What Exactly Is Traumatizing Content?

      I think the bigger problem with such a vague ruling is that anyone can claim something is traumatizing to them. People usually won't question such claims either, because it's pretty awkward to do so and (...)


    8. Re: Hello from me, a reader

      I think as long as you're writing something you yourself would like to read, you're on the right track. Definitely keep at it, and sometimes what people need is just to find a particular idea that they (...)


    9. Re: A wandering Metablade joins the Community

      Ayyy Deltora! Weirdly I almost never run across people who have actually read any of that series, or even heard about it. It's fun stuff.


    10. Re: The Slow Climb Continues - 50 Followers and 3,000 Views

      Congrats! Keep at it, and I hope you continue to have success and most importantly are having fun with your work! :peoapproval:


    11. Re: This is torture

      Topic: I'm a writer reading litrpg. It's terrible and torture. Response: Youtube link about how writers should definitely read terrible stories. No extra context given outside the video. Apparently the (...)


    12. Re: This is torture

      Yeah, no, I got all of that. OP sees litrpg as shit. They're trying to copy what they view as shit to do well themselves to "crack the formula." Instead of doing as the video says about being inspired (...)


    13. Re: How deep is too deep?

      TL;DR could you be arsed to read the Silmarillion? I can't even be arsed to read the lotr books a second time around. The Hobbit is an exception, and actually a very fun read, but I don't particularly (...)


    14. Re: Character Growth and character flaws

      My favorite virtues/flaws in characters, protagonist or otherwise, are simply when both are presented as good and bad depending on severity and context. Sometimes having a short temper can be harmless (...)


    15. Re: I am writing a Fantasy. I need help in gathering information for it.

      Lots of resources is definitely good, but don't forget to just make stuff up on your own as well. Somebody had to think up the sphinx to begin with, or so on, after all. You can also just like, do new (...)


    16. Re: I'm going to write some stories with flat characters that have almost no descriptions!

      There's a goosebumps book where the entire twist is fully reliant on the fact that the author never explicitly describes the cast or the location in any real detail, so I think it's a pretty valid route (...)


    17. Re: This is torture

      Except one of the reasons he says to read terrible books is because reading good books might lead you into plagiarism or "too much like" that good book. OP is shooting specifically to copy parts of said (...)

      To be blunt your friend sounds like a clown and you're probably better off not talking to someone like that.
