    1. Re: Other authors, what would you consider slow/fast growth for a new project posted here?

      First time authors will probably have slower stats than authors with multiple stories.  They already have an established fan base.   I've noticed the rate of growth on my own story has been greater (...)


    2. Re: Other authors, what would you consider slow/fast growth for a new project posted here?

      I usually want 100 followers in the first week and 1k-2k followers by the end of the first month and a half. That's pretty fast growth compared to what I'm getting. I got nothing, lol.


    3. Re: Other authors, what would you consider slow/fast growth for a new project posted here?

      @Mount Tai Unleashed  Those are nice stats. I can see that my own project is slowly growing, but you're probably right about the niche stuff. Mine doesn't really fall into those categories. Though it (...)


    4. Re: Other authors, what would you consider slow/fast growth for a new project posted here?

      I'm looking at the stats. I can't stop looking. I'm not really worried, but I don't know what they mean. I was wondering what other writers here consider slow, steady, or fast growth? What numbers would (...)


    5. Re: How to increase the pace?

      There's a million reasons why a person might stop reading, many of which may have nothing to do with your story at all. I would suggest that you continue to write whatever entertains you as the writer (...)


    6. Re: Thriller pacing?

      These are good comments. I definitely don't want to frustrate readers, especially with the over "one more cliffhanger" syndrome some books have. I might upload multiple chapters at once or upload in larger (...)


    7. Re: Thriller pacing?

      Deciding on the structure of my story. I want to aim for thriller pacing with a daily release between 300-900 words. Any thoughts? Could also group scenes together for a bi weekly release of 1-3k. I really (...)


    8. Re: What is the optimal length per chapter?

      Well, for books there's no such thing as the right chapter length. The Witcher books have chapters that are 40-60 pages in length, while writers like Jonathan Maberry write chapters between 300-700 words. (...)


    9. Re: Unique vs traditional

      Why not combine them to try and gain both viewerships at once? By the way, where'd you get that cover art done, it's sweet.


    10. Re: Miniseries Web Stories - How About'em?

      I think it could work, if approached right. If you were to post different stories as one project with a centralized theme, or maybe even set in the same story world, that could draw readers across different (...)


    11. Re: Miniseries Web Stories - How About'em?

      Well, I can't really answer your question, but this is exactly what I plan to write on here. I have several ideas for different iterations of this. I want to write this way mainly do to two issues. Dragging (...)


    12. Re: Long-Winded War Arcs

      Alexander the Great spent ten years expanding the Macedonian empire. Most of that time was spent fighting the Persians. It's interesting how the armies would maneuver around each other, perusing or retreating (...)


    13. Re: Villains: Integral to Any Plot

      Villains are great. Whenever I come up with a story, I almost always come up with the villain first. If you know who the bad guy is and what he wants, then you know what your hero has to do to stop him. (...)


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

      Oh, sure, I don't think it's a "problem", it's just a matter of reader expectations, sometimes you might lose people if you don't stick with a set cast. But, you know, some authors can keep cranking out (...)


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

      One big fiction. Normally, I would've recommend multiple smaller works. But you have to keep in mind that this is RRL. Readers here prefer highly serialized series, and I even dare to say some of them (...)


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

      I'm very impatient as a writer, so I tend to write shorter-length works at around 30,000 words. I want to write stand alone stories set in the same world with alternating characters. The thing is, once (...)


    17. Re: What genres are people generally looking for on here?

      I know LitRPG is a big thing here, but what about other stuff? I just write fantasy. Kind of vague, because I've written steampunk fantasy, medieval fantasy, futuristic post apocalypse fantasy. Basically, (...)
