    1. Re: How do you write innocence?

      One way to do it without having them come across as stupid is to simply have certain pessimistic or skeptical thought processes not occur to them. Not quite "but that would be illegal!" memes, but close (...)


    2. Re: Personal writing ticks.

      I like using hyphens as a way to connect two sentence fragments - like so. Or even nestling a smaller sentence - like this - inside a bigger one. I know commas and : and ; can do the same thing, and while (...)


    3. Re: That feeling when you find another story that's basically the same as yours...

      Worrying too much about being unique or original is a bad time, just focus on writing the best story you can and it'll stand up on it's own.


    4. Re: Badly explain the plot of your series with no spoilers

      Short girl with bad manners tours color coded elemental lands with a collection of idiots she meets along the way.


    5. Re: First Forum post after 5 (more like 8-9) years here, got some recent question.

      I'm new here and unfortunately don't have any answers, but I'm curious about this topic and what it means - what is KU affected? What is BoC?


    6. Re: What is your opinion on "Filler/Bonus" chapters?

      Filler is probably the wrong way to think about it - in things like shows, filler is what it is because its the showrunners trying to buy for time so they don't overtake the source material. When the original (...)


    7. Re: By Thy Requests, I Write - Requesting Requests

      You know how a lot of plots involve an ancient evil that was sealed away because the previous heroes were unable to actually defeat it themselves and it was the best they could do? It'd be interesting (...)


    8. Re: Follower Count is Not a Mark of Your Worth as an Artist and Neither is Money (So why do you write?)

      I write because I want to bring thoughts and ideas and jokes and nonsense into form. Things inspired by other media, things I don't see in other media, even things I thought really sucked in other media (...)


    9. Re: Routine and Writing/Posting Schedule

      One very important thing that applies to all routines, even like exercise ones - if you mess up and fall behind, don't let that get you down. The only way to fail a routine is to stop doing it entirely. (...)


    10. Re: When to know when you need to change things up?

      One of the best ways to gauge interest in a story is to go "would I be interested in reading this myself?" and put yourself in a viewers shoes. It's important also to have confidence - as difficult as (...)


    11. Re: By Thy Requests, I Write - Requesting Requests

      You know how a lot of plots involve an ancient evil that was sealed away because the previous heroes were unable to actually defeat it themselves and it was the best they could do? It'd be interesting (...)


    12. Re: Copying Your MC to Other Stories

      I think it's fine as long as its not coming from a "this is my oc, I shove them into everything" kind of mindset - if you've ever played tabletop games, you might have seen players who do this kind of (...)


    13. Re: Sometimes it only takes a single active reader

      Don't sell yourself short - having readers definitely helps, but the one keeping it going is you at the end of the day. So, good job and keep at it!  Also, like some people have said this thread got (...)


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

      The tone is probably what I like most so far, and how fun it is for me to write it. I intend for it to be the sort of story where ridiculous things happen and the jokes are stupid, but that doesn't take (...)


    15. Re: What is your MC's favorite color?

      Bradán would be the main MC so far (I am planning on collecting a few main characters that make up the primary cast later in), and while it hasn't come up in any capacity yet her favorite color is green. (...)


    16. Re: How would you carry out storytelling and world building in your stories?

      I'm still on my first fiction, but the simplest answer I can give is that I write world building and storytelling the way I know younger me as a reader would love to read it in other stories. This includes (...)


    17. Re: Hey guys! I'm new on the site and looking forward to becoming a great writer. Who's up for a chat?

      Fourthing the question about if you have any spicy ideas for your first story, and welcome to the site!


    18. Re: I got like 10 followers and 2 Ratings !

      Glad to hear it! I've been enjoying my time here too so far, so far everyone is very chill.


    19. Re: 100 total views

      Going from writing mostly to myself in a google document with no intention of sharing my writing with the world to joining Royal Road has been a great experience. 100 views to me is both exciting and slightly (...)


    20. Re: Hoooooooooooooooiiii!

      Welcome! All my tips are in the beginner's guide (already linked by Parker & Tea, but also in my sig), but I agree Purple about just asking questions here, for the most part the community here is helpful (...)
