    1. Re: Spatial magic, magic system ideas.

      I'd start simple - the first spell effects would simply compress or expand space, allowing faster movement (without higher inertia), and greater projectile ranges.  Next would be a shield effect where (...)


    2. Re: Your worst fear

       then the world hits a global collapse that makes it all meaningless. Few understand just how massive this will be.  And most who do just carry on in denial, since we can't effect meaningful change. (...)

    4. Re: Abusive relationships being glorified is disgusting

      We have an abusive society, and most people have no clue - they just accept things as the way life is.  The depth of self-hatred is what "glorifies" abusive relationships - because, deep down, people believe (...)


    5. Re: Your worst fear

      Hard to find a worst fear when it comes to writing, as I haven't done much of it yet.  I suppose the worst case would be suddenly getting popular and starting to make actual money - and then the world (...)


    6. Re: I did an Ad [Breakdown]

      I wonder how many give bad ratings just because they had to see an ad?


    7. Re: Writing economics: Consequences for using a separate currency only for necessities?

      People can and would still "work the system" - buying and trading away their "necessities" for their "wants", even if they had to do it in physical form.  But, more likely, there would be some kind of (...)


    8. Re: 50 Favorites and First 0.5 Rating

      Sadly, my first 2 ratings were a 4.0, and then a 3.5 - not much motivation there to be had...


    9. Re: can I use both the past and the present tense?

      You can be as tense as you'd like, but beware of that "fist paragraph"!


    10. Re: STORY IDEA: WHAT DO YOU THINK?

      Problem is, that scenario shows nothing about his being worthy - it's just a way out of an endless loop.  He had to do it eventually simply for him to escape his own endless nightmare - regardless of the (...)


    11. Re: What's the thing called where it gets harder to reach the speed of light?

      Think of it this way:  As you accelerate, the energy used to accelerate you is added to your mass.  At normal velocities, this is far too small to notice, but as you near C, nearly all the energy from (...)



    12. Re: Hi everyone! Hope you’re well :)

      Both your degrees in Fiction?  Well, come on in here and we'll give you the 3rd degree!!


    13. Re: Should I continue on using ads?

      It all depends how much Followers are worth to you.


    14. Re: LitRPG Progression With Second Person Narrative

      Not so sure about 2nd person - seems like it would all be about you.


    15. Re: Anti-Harem kinda guy

      Rather than harem, I like stories where the women are as likely to initiate sex as the men, and both are less hung up about the relationship aspects of intimacy than we readers are in our current cultural (...)


    16. Re: Three 0.5 star ratings in a row! Hooray!

      Wow!  That many people care enough and feel threatened enough by your writing to give you such ratings - that should be an Achievement in itself!


    17. Re: A modern day super hero

      Go Danny Phantom!!


    18. Re: Are you a natural plotter or pantser?

      Just the pants, and usually even those are just shorts


    19. Re: Thoughts on "Classes"

      It depends how you use it.  Are "classes" hardwired, or simply descriptive labels?  Do they lock you into sets of potential abilities?  Can they be changed over time? Reset?  Freely chosen or assigned? (...)
