    1. Re: Promote your story with the first three paragraphs the reader sees

      The Dragons Realm Chapter One Port of Oldtown 2nd First Moon, 7999  Aegon Targaryen stood in silence upon the quay, the light pink streaks of the clear sky slowly giving way to the night, illuminating (...)


    2. Re: Offering my humble reviewing services (first 10k) [OPEN]

      Hello! When you have time, I'd greatly appreciate if you looked through the first four chapters on The Kill List, which is just slightly over 10k words currently! Thank you. If needed, feel free to drop (...)


    3. Re: Hi Everybody!

      Excellent intro! Glad you're finding things to like here, and I hope you find success when you post your stories!


    4. Re: Promote your story with the first three paragraphs the reader sees

             Rainfall had seen the coup d’état against her father, the murder of her brother, and the loss of her birthright. A week later and it still gave no sign of stopping. Rainfall would see the first (...)


    5. Re: I can’t post a chapter tonight. Now, all I feel is shame.

      Hey OP! It's totally okay to miss an update. While it's good to keep in touch with your readers, at the end of the day, you're a human and you deserve slack. Especially for hobby writing!


    6. Re: What's the current state of the cover meta?

      A brief glance suggests that the biggest app nowadays is Dream, for AI generated covers.  I think these are really not fitting for covers, 97% of the time. I don't think I've seen a single one I thought (...)


    7. Re: What's the current state of the cover meta?

      I currently rely on NightCafe. Maybe it'll catch on soon.  :DrakanFascinating:


    8. Re: Hello there!

      Ayyy, another short story writer! There's at least three of us! Welcome, excited to give your stuff a read.  I know Alexander Hawthorne and Vlad have been dropping short stories recently. There are RR (...)

    10. Re: Do you enjoy stories that blend into metaphysical themes?

      Oh wow, woke up to a lot of good recommendations. Adding these to my list!


    11. Re: Enlightened immortals and humble souls, I would like to say, "Hi all!"

      Welcome! It must take a lot of effort and skill to translate a story from one language to another, while maintaining the quality and integrity of the prose! Really impressive. I'm sure your fiction will (...)


    12. Re: Does technology kill mysteries in urban fantasy?

      I like to think a good way of handling this is to include some government or organization with a lot of resources that actively tries to keep things quiet. Got superheroes who need to superhero in secret? (...)


    13. Re: So, How Do You Lot Feel About Deleted Scenes?

      It's not a bad idea at all! Some series have entire companion works that are dedicated to extra scenes or details that weren't included in the OG story. It's great for worldbuilding. A lot of the 'greats' (...)


    14. Re: Does technology kill mysteries in urban fantasy?

      This may be an odd suggestion, but what if something new was introduced to the world? Something that technology hadn't been built to measure or observe. A drastic example of this would be Lovecraft's (...)


    15. Do you enjoy stories that blend into metaphysical themes?

      Trying to see what other opinions are on this! If I had to give examples for books/story heavy on metaphysics, I'd list: Herbert's Dune Tolkien's Silmarillion The video game, Morrowind Gaiman's American (...)


    16. Re: What Exactly Is Traumatizing Content?

      It really is a vague standard, OP. Any violence can be considered traumatic, for instance. As with any other vague guideline, I've taken it to mean, "We'll know it when we see it."  If your fiction isn't (...)


    17. Re: How many fifth graders to take over the US government?

      You mean that's not already happening this past decade?


    18. Re: Promote Your Story - First Sentences

       Rainfall had seen the coup d’état against her father, the murder of her brother, and the loss of her birthright. 


    19. Re: For Fans of Dark Fantasy.

      First off, I'm a huge fan of Berserk. Good taste OP.  Gonna have to promote myself on this one.  The Kill List is a fantasy novel I'm writing currently that may fit what you're looking for. The protagonist (...)


    20. Re: Promote your story by comparing it to titles in other mediums

      The Kill List is just Kill Bill with more complications.
