    1. Re: Tips for writing 1st person Narrative.

      Try not to start every sentence with an "I".  I'm guilty of this and it's really easy to fall into.  Instead of saying "I saw the princess on the veranda. I thought she was very beautiful. I heard (...)


    2. Re: Intro Arc Finally Done!!! (Plus my terrible secret)

      Congrats. Posting as you write is quite a feat. But it seems to be working for you, well maybe except for your sanity. Continued success. You can't lose your sanity if you're already insane.    :DrakanThink: (...)


    3. Re: Intro Arc Finally Done!!! (Plus my terrible secret)

      Congratulations! Lol, I struggle to put out 1300 words every other day. No idea how you're doing it. Crippling fear of failure haha. Plus, I'm really enjoying what I'm writing so far. Having a general (...)


    4. Re: Intro Arc Finally Done!!! (Plus my terrible secret)

      Awesome, congrats! Also very brave lol. It's ok to slow down the schedule a bit if you need to, or try to build up at least a few chapters for just in case situations. Thanks! I'm realizing it's definitely (...)

    11. Re: Promote your story, but make it rhyme!

      One of my characters is a bard. I had no choice. Ahem. "In the Endless land, there was a boy not a man, Who left his crown in the sky, He planted potatoes, and lamented his woes, The witches made (...)


    12. Re: It makes me sad

      So...I agree with you that a lot of the time negative reviews hurt author motivation rather than help it.  I personally don't give reviews unless I feel it's 4-5 stars, or unless an author asks for (...)


    13. Re: 50K Words and 500 views!

    17. Re: Promote your story with a relevant quote

      "Yesterday I was going to be King, and today I'm a potato farmer.  That's prophecies for you. Fickle. Unreliable. Honestly, the oracles are as bad as the weathermen."


    18. Re: Promote your fiction with the most basic description of it you can think of

      A spoiled king is kidnapped by witches to be their farmer. He is bad at it. He absorbs deadly magic into his hand and goes on a quest for a special glove. Along the way he learns how to be a badass (...)
