    1. Re: How do you guys feel about crouching moron, hidden badass protagonist?

      No my favorite trope. I like it every-now-and-then if it's done in an entertaining way. However, I wouldn't bother with story after story of it. That sort of thing gets irritating and boring. 


    2. Re: Ha-ha you activated my trap card! Over-zealous planning!

      You need to learn when to stop planning. What that point is, I can't tell you. There is a sweet spot and you have to discover it on you own. I learned very early on that I hate outlining and pantsing an (...)


    3. Re: How to make my MC represent lust when all around him are monsters and tree?

      Lust isn't just lust for sex. As mentioned, you can lust over anything. It's just everyone always assumes it just lean sexual desire. I don't know if it's easier to represent in media or a misconception. (...)


    4. Re: Talking to writers has made me jaded

      lol what have I done. :peogiggle:  To appease the gods, we must resort to the most cliché method, and throw you into a volcano. No hard feelings.  :DrakanWine:   Welp in that case, (...)


    5. Re: Talking to writers has made me jaded

      lol what have I done. :peogiggle: 


    6. Re: Talking to writers has made me jaded

      Right I'm not calling anyone out. Not intentionally. I was just super happy about how many views my stories were getting and going on about it in the discord I'm apart of and there was this person (...)


    7. Re: My reviews seem to be garnering downvotes. Am I doing something wrong?

      There is nothing wrong with you're reviews. They are nice and balance and what I would consider a good reviews. I think the only thing you've done wrong is review popular stories. The more popular (...)


    8. Re: Thoughts on LITRPG?

      Not my thing.


    9. Re: Do You Take Writing Inspiration from Video Games?

      Yes, but not often as I don't play as many games as I used to. Chanter's magic in my story was inspired by the character Tear in Tales of the Abyss and her magic.


    10. Re: TikTok and BookTube Marketing

      I don't see how I could use TikTok as well as Booktube. I don't have a TikTok. I can't say anything other than, I'm not the audience. I can't stand what little I see of to want to commit to making (...)


    11. Re: Story length

      I mean, I'm probably more a traditional writing in mindset and usually I can estimate how long a novels' draft is going to be. Then I can add between 20-30,000 words because I under write. So I can't predict (...)


    12. Re: A tomato Pep Talk

      I've seen writer's joke about this on different communities, but none have taken up the mantle of actually doing it.


    13. Re: Authors Who Dislike Comments Fixing Typos: Read This

      It might be a good idea to mention that in your pre/post chapter notes then readers know that you're aware of issues and will work on them in the future. It might help more readers feel listened to and (...)


    14. Re: Authors Who Dislike Comments Fixing Typos: Read This

      2) The other is for the chapters to be more correct, so that in the future _other readers_ will not have to feel the same pain. If I read a story that has been there for some time, I wish for somebody (...)


    15. Re: Authors Who Dislike Comments Fixing Typos: Read This

      I'm not the biggest fan of it because I feel like a person  I don't think such an author exists lolll They assuredly do. They probably are less likely to be the ones lurking on these forums, though, (...)


    16. Re: How many POV characters is too many (as a writer and as a reader)?

      It's not a matter of getting overwhelmed for me as I'm reading. It's just a matter of caring. The only real time a reader might get overwhelmed is if the writer doesn't do a good job handling multiple (...)


    17. Re: Your Favorite Character

      My character Oeric. He is a main character sometimes a POV character and the rare father character who rises to mentor character status and doesn't die. It was purposely done because I was so tired (...)


    18. Re: Question. Do you have discord or facebook for your stories?

      Think you get the most out of social media for creators if you already have a presence on there or somewhere else and can pull enough followers in. FB as a platform is terrible. I barely use it personally (...)


    19. Re: Plot holes in your writing?

      Yes, and since I write everything out beforehand, I can catch a lot of them given I read through stories multiple times. I can't truly remember anything glaring. Small plotholes don't really bother me (...)


    20. Re: Need help with chapter release schedule

      I mean, I base uploading on two things: 1. What can you realistically post each week. No ideals. Certainly, ideally you want to do 2-3 days a week or more. However, it comes down to how much time you (...)
