1. Re: asking cause i'm kinda paranoid

      Safety through redundancy. Never have your important data just in one place. By all means, use Google Docs - but also use a local copy AND put it on a USB stick AND mail it to yourself each evening. (...)

    2. Re: Looking for (professional) Beta-Read

      @David Musk I don't get what your problem is. You can't tell me who I have to hire. I want a beta-reader, not an editor, neither line editor nor content editor. Apart from opening your recruitment (...)

    3. Re: What unpopular gaming opinions do you have?

      Dark Souls isn't hard. It's just very unforgiving for new players. Really unpopular opinion: It's only unforgiving for veteran players. The reason is simple. A new player learns the game but veteran (...)

    4. Re: asking cause i'm kinda paranoid

      is google docs safe enough? I am not going to lose my files suddenly because of a computer malfunction or something, am I? or are there other mediums to keep my files safe enough? Safety through (...)

    5. Re: Story idea: a human with the [Skeleton] class!

      Yup. Humans are skeletons operating a biogenetic power armor with auxiliary inteligence augmentation.

    6. Re: Lacklustre Reviews/Criticism

      Personally, I look at the review sphere from the lens of a social researcher. There are two main lines of inquiry, one being quantitative and the other being qualitative. While both have their purpose, (...)

    7. Re: Book Covers

      Has anyone commissioned a cover from these guys before? If so, did you actually get the cover?  I'm asking because it's now been 3 weeks since I've sent them the money and I haven't heard from them since (...)

    8. Re: To Become A Writer

      There's a singular requirement to be a writer. You write. Now if you want to get it done, you will want to learn the craft of writing. It's not some magic talent - it's a learned ability. The way is (...)

    9. Re: Comprehensive Coding Guide for the Updated Website (HTML)

      A lot of HTML didn't (back when I used it) work when coding for my fictions, or worked differently to how it should. I wasn't around back then but I can confirm that even now, HTML on RoyalRoad is weird (...)

    10. Re: Scrivener help?!

      Yeah, you're a bit out of luck there. Scrivener is best used from the grounds up. Doing so at a later stage is painful. Either way, if you want to make use of Scrivener then yes, you do need to get organized. (...)

    11. Re: writing a sci-fi with a vague concept.

      Without knowing what that goal is and why it needs to be science fiction, it's hard to give a solid recommendation on the issue. That said, you don't need a single word of techno babble, not even in a (...)

    12. Re: Movies that inspire your writing

      My main focus in movies tends to be audio and visual. For me to be inspired these need to be intriguing. So let's start with the first one that comes to mind. The Cornetto Trilogy. Yeah I'm cheating (...)

    13. Re: Uploaded Cover Image Quality

      You're right, covers are messed up for me too. When I went and looked, both my fictions had blurry images. Turns out it had been downsized to 200x300px (in the Dashboard too) so I went and uploaded my (...)


      Well, since the damage is already done, there's no point in piling on. I'll instead take the time and point out that we authors are essentially brands. The one aspect of writing that is perhaps even more (...)

    15. Re: How to write a story based in a fictional city, in an actual country that I have never been to?

      Something I did a while back was to use Google Street View to get a general feel for the area. See what kind of shops there are, look at common architecture, plants and just get an all-around feel for (...)

    16. Re: Meme Culture as Comedy in Fictions

      Memes are transient. That's the entire crux with them. They tend to explode in popularity and remain relevant for a few months. After that, you get one of two outcomes. First, it will die down and become (...)

    17. Re: Need of feedback on the difference between the first and last chapter.

      You can hit me up at the time, but I'm not sure I'm going to have the time as I need to focus on my stuff for a while. Either way, let me just clear something up: The whole patience thing is simply the (...)

    18. Re: Need of feedback on the difference between the first and last chapter.

      It's going to be a bit difficult to provide you with helpful feedback for your story. Let's start with the obvious since you yourself have mentioned it in your synopsis: Your writing style changes significantly (...)

    19. Re: Why are Isekai's and LitRPGs so popular?

      For me, I would say its a lot like the dystopian phase. A few years ago we had a huge flurry of books like Hunger Games, and Divergent. I mean they were everywhere and they were huge. This is the same (...)

    20. Re: Hoping to get some story feedback

      Though I thought throwing daggers with the eyes was an idiom. It's an idiom, yes. It's usually used with shoot, look or stare daggers at something but it can be broadened for use with throwing as well. (...)
