    1. Re: Slow Cooking. Novels Heavily Based On Dialogue/Character Interaction.

      <- hands down the best you're gonna get. Tuesday and Saturday are my favorite days 'cause there is a new chapter. https://practicalguidetoevil.wordpress.com/ (...)(...)


    2. Re: Novels with Skills and levels

      The Wandering Inn is hands down the best I've read, but it isn't everyone's style. https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/10073/the-wandering-inn   Savage Divinity isn't exactly what you're looking for but (...)


    3. Re: Review Swaps

      Hey guys and gals, I will get to your stories as soon as I can. Unfortunately I got laid low with strep so I need a little time to recover before I can really dig into a new story. To Andrew B. Salmon-> (...)


    4. Re: Review Swaps

      Hey errbody, I've started posting the rewrite of my fiction The Adventures of a Unique Snowflake. I've got about 12,000 words up at the moment and I'm looking to review swap with a few novels of a similar (...)


    5. Re: Is it beyond help? Should I delete my work?

      I got another 2.5 ranking, again no feedback or any indication what I did wrong. and why does the 2.5 bother you? 2.5 means "average", no one called your story bad. If you had gotten a 0.5, that would (...)


    6. Re: Is it beyond help? Should I delete my work?

      In my experience, your first story is gonna be rough. The best way to get better is to finish what you started, studying up on writing techniques/ storytelling, and then write again. For me, I've spent (...)


    7. Re: Angels in novels

      Angels from the Bible aren't actually what we would consider the 'modern angel' with blonde hair and white wings. Apparently those bad boys were terrifying, so much so that the first thing they'd almost (...)


    8. Re: A new author in need of writing tips!

      Watch Brandon Sanderson's writing lectures on youtube. He gives a ton of practical advice and explanations about plot devices, characters, world-building, magic systems, etc.


    9. Re: Revising your fiction

      In my opinion, you should finish whatever you're writing first. After you're done, go back and rewrite your story using everything you've learned and all your new ideas. If you listen to Brandon Sanderson's (...)


    10. Re: MC with physically tough skin

      A Will Eternal is a cultivator novel that focuses on a shameless MC who is terrified of dying. This fear leads him to cultivate a technique that hardens his skin and eventually the rest of his body. I (...)


    11. Re: How to write flaws in to characters

      Google 'the clues to a good story' and watch the TED talk. I promise that it will give you great ideas for character development and how to give them flaws.  Other than that, my personal opinion is that (...)


    12. Re: What's the god-tier fiction around these parts?

      It isn't on here but A Practical Guide to Evil ( https://practicalguidetoevil.wordpress.com/ ) is up there with Savage Divinity, The Wandering Inn, and There is no epic loot here, only puns. I personally (...)


    13. Re: Story idea/plotting - Wizard reverse-transfers from fantasy world to sci-fi universe.

      I like the concept but I think it could use a bit more. For example, where is the species he is supposed to uplift? What challenges will he face? How will he meeting people that will later become his more (...)


    14. What makes a character strong?

      I’ve had a lot of complaints about how my character is ‘too weak’ and needs to be ‘stronger.’ I’m on board to fix flaws in my story, but those complaints are a little vague. So, my question is the following: (...)


    15. RE: Stories with underdog protagonist that doesn't get random power-ups

      Thank you for the detailed response and the suggestions! I'll keep that in mind as I sort through the rewrite :) I came out of the gate with a ton of ideas to play with and I think you're right when you (...)


    16. RE: Stories with underdog protagonist that doesn't get random power-ups

      Hey! I'm not usually the self-promoting type, but check out the link in my signature. I have the sort of sucky MC you're looking for. He goes from all powerful demon lord, to the weakest guy around. (...)

    18. RE: What do I need to make a good novel?

      You have to be a bit sadistic. What I mean by that is, you need create characters you love enough for you to want to finish their story and tell it the best way possible, but you need to put those same (...)


    19. RE: The Dreaded 0.5 Star

      Just minutes after my scheduled chapter popped up, I got slapped with another 0.5 rating. That makes it a total of 5 0.5 ratings, 5 1.5 ratings, and 3 2.0 ratings. The 3 3.0 and 2 3.5 ratings I totally (...)


    20. RE: How do you guys keep track of plot/characters/etc in a fiction?

      I use my iron will to force the small details into submission.
