1. Re: One big work of fiction or multiple smaller works?

      People do tend to get attached to the cast they start off with, and want to see their continuing adventures, instead of always shifting around. I don't really see this as a problem. That is just an (...)

    2. Re: Storylines We Hate

      That all said, here's some plot lines or tropes I could do without ever reading again: -Teenagers in High School, magic or otherwise -Coming of Age stories -Standard Fantasy Worlds (aka Tolkein/DnD (...)

    3. Re: One big work of fiction or multiple smaller works?

      I also tend to trend towards the "shared world anthology" approach, and I've had that issue of readers really wanting me to continue old stories, and still occasionally asking about it years later. People (...)

    4. Re: The Power of the Unbookmark Button

      Lol, it's like when I put things on my Watch later list on YouTube. I clear off half to most of them later on, knowing I'm not actually that interested once I get around to trying to watch the list again.

    5. Re: What's your favorite under-represented genre?

      I also enjoy superhero web serials that go a step beyond in the storytelling.

    6. Re: Storylines We Hate

      I'm going to sound like a typical feminist, but as a woman it really bothers me. It's agitating -.- I hate it when the MC (of course it's going to be a man..)  gets so much attention from women and all (...)

    7. Re: Are stories on Royal Road a waste of time?

      William Faulkner once said: “I'm a failed poet. Maybe every novelist wants to write poetry first, finds he can't, and then tries the short story, which is the most demanding form after poetry. And, (...)

    8. Re: Finding my novel uploaded to YouTube as a machine read audiobook... hmmm.

      I think you should put in a DMCA for it. Someone's potentially profiting off your hard work behind your back. This isn't too different from plagiarized ebooks being sold, usually in foreign ebook markets, (...)

    9. RE: WriTE nicknames, secrets, folkstories and legends!

      I write "adult content" literature under a different name. It's not much of a secret, though. :P

      *CHOMPS! cookie*

    11. RE: How to Join Us

      Hey, so, uh, GenRincewind left the back door open and I snuck in.  :P Despite going my whole life thinking of superhero and adventurer plots, I have extremely few things to show for it. The past few (...)

    12. RE: Finish Your Fiction Barriers

      Massive indecision is one, when I just can't decide what I want to do with a setting or characters. Hating how cliche something feels to me (even if others don't think it's cliche) is another. Often, (...)

    13. RE: List your favorite LitRPG stories from anywhere!

      I don't think I've actually read/seen hardly any of them. Captain N is probably the one I'm most familiar with. The show was pretty abysmal, but as a kid, the premise alone was enough to keep you watching. (...)

    14. RE: LitRPG Story Ideas!

      I had the idea to do something with a superhero team where the characters all have powers that happen to mimic video game mechanics. This was purely coincidental and there wasn't anything literally related (...)
