    1. Re: Excuse me!

      Online (I have to go = My dog needs a toilet). Context; My dog will not toilet in the garden, he will moan at me till I take him out to the field. Luckily only two minutes away, but have to do this (...)


    2. Re: Pride and an LGBT+ Tag

      They can say their stance is non-negotiable; but what's wrong with discussing their reasoning?  All four points should not be reasons to not have the tag on the surface of it and there are valid reasons (...)


    3. Re: What are you feeling good about?

      My new puppy is now potty trained and my older dog has started to talk to me again... He actually came and slept in my bed last night :) That puppy training can be rough to get through! Just went through (...)


    4. Re: What are you feeling good about?

      My new puppy is now potty trained and my older dog has started to talk to me again... He actually came and slept in my bed last night :)


    5. Re: Pride and an LGBT+ Tag

      God I promised myself I wouldn't reply to any of these but this specific thing does need pointing out because a bunch of people seem to believe this for some reason Not adding the tag due to fear of (...)


    6. Re: Can I Panic Now?

      Reading this and the responses, all I can say is I am lucky. My book, completed and taken off the site was not stolen. The only place I found it was on - was the one that just links chapters back to RR (...)


    7. Re: Promote your story by telling us the most drastic change between the plan you originally had and what you (...)

      My current = The gods are fallen angels and had a whole background story. I have omitted this bit to stay within the 'no religion' of RR rules. 


    8. Re: Harem, and why some love them

      I do not enjoy most harem. Very few are satisfying reads. Poly relations in a three-way, I have no issue (usually) with and I have written one. But I focused on friendship and shared goals. The people (...)


    9. Re: Pride and an LGBT+ Tag

      Here to celebrate Pride https://cdn11.bigcommerce.com/s-2lbnjvmw4d/images/stencil/1280x1280/products/3663/4425/rainbowsmileyflag300__03526.1574945651.gif?c=2 Great to see such a wonderful expression (...)


    10. Re: Writing LGBTQIA+ characters and books

      This is a good reference; https://richiebilling.com/writing-tips/representing-lgbtqia-people-in-writing How I write will not be a help to most people. I have created whole planets where it is the (...)


    11. Re: Should Sexuality/Gender 'Warnings' be in a synopsis?

      I am with you, my understanding if there is no romance or actual issues surrounding the MC's sexuality = no need to mention it. I read and I am having second thoughts and thinking maybe I need to with (...)


    12. Re: Idealology and reading content.

      Oh, we're talking about writing characters whose values disagree with your own?  I hadn't made the connection but now that you mention it that IS important, and difficult. Was not supposed to be about (...)


    13. Re: Idealology and reading content.

      Can you imagine (I guess this is something you can relate to) - A parent telling their teen - to turn that damn awful noise down (classical music). When I write it tends to be on the basis of rock music, (...)


    14. Re: Pride, and there should be an LGBT plus tag

      The debate can get really bad. Let me tell ya a true story. Like back in the days in a UN forum, two especially vocal born Intersex representatives are arguing about the official term they want to use (...)


    15. Re: Pride, and there should be an LGBT plus tag

      Although I do think the tag description should make it clear that it's for works that focus on LGBT characters or LGBT issues, that way authors who don't want to use it have an argument for not using it (...)


    16. Re: Idealology and reading content.

      This is exactly the place I am trying to reach with my current. I do think in the first instance, one needs to examine one's own thought processes and ideologies to do it effectively and not tilt the positions (...)


    17. Re: Pride, and there should be an LGBT plus tag

      I am questioning if I would use it. Many of my gods are bi-sexual, but it is not the focus of the story.  More a consequence of having no stable physical form and only having one when visiting the material (...)


    18. Re: Idealology and reading content.

      Do you feel there is a certain amount of ideology in the material people read? Do we automatically stereotype based on it? Obviously there's ideology embedded in everything. The fact the author has (...)


    19. Re: Idealology and reading content.

      There is ideology in everything made by humans. No such thing as a story without politics, without subtext, without implications. It’s all built in whether we like it or not, because our stories are made (...)


    20. Re: Idealology and reading content.

      I don't give a lot of thought to this sort of thing. I really try not to make judgments on the types of things people consume. Reason being I was always singled out for my reading in general and for (...)
