    Received 4 1-star ratings because another author accused me of stealing and cropping someone's else cover image

    Totally unrelated but what's the author discord server for SH? I would like to join.

    Which word processer is best for writing?

    I use Calmlywriter. Both the online version for my laptop and the app version for my phone. It is distraction free, has an eggshell white background and uses a beautiful font. It gives you the option to save to your own library or to your google drive. I also use good ol' Word when my...

    What would you consider to be the epitome of the Japanese reincarnation/transmigration MC?

    I have read Solo Leveling and no it is not Isekai. It falls under the 'magical realism' umbrella. Isekai requires the MC to be 'transported' into another dimension, realm or world, not the other way around. At least that is what I believe.

    What would you consider to be the epitome of the Japanese reincarnation/transmigration MC?

    That's because Cyberpunk is hard to write. You need to research for it, look for reference in novels and cinema and do actual worldbuilding with real issues and socio-economical background. It is simply too much work so let's just go with your token medieval slash fantasy world. I'm actually...

    Author's urge to Post Too Early

    That only makes you more godlike XD We, the feeble mortal kind, need at least a whole day to write a 2.5k-3k chapter. I naturally tend to write slower, it just how my mind works. I also edit as I write so maybe that is why.

    Author's urge to Post Too Early

    Nah, it just shows you are the normal one, like me :blob_joy: People like @DubstheDuke and @HansTrondheim are gods on earth so don't be hard on yourself.

    A thread full of SALT

    As long as a story is well-written (preferably harem-free) with an interesting protagonist, I would read it :) I checked your more recent story out and it seems to be well-received for a story with just 9 chapters. That must mean it's worth reading. I will give it a go. I've only written BL so...

    A thread full of SALT

    I was just about to say that :blob_joy: You must have missed the staples of SH Trending : the busty anime girl cover, the harem tag, the gender bender tag and of course the holy Ecchi tag. How else to you expect your story to get views? Jokes aside, it's commendable enough that you managed to...

    How to write a good love interest character

    Having real life romantic experiences can help you a great deal when you write love interests. How did you meet your first or last bf/gf? What brought you together? What worked in your relationship? What didn't? What kept you together? What broke you up? You can draw inspiration from that and...

    A thread full of SALT

    Oh, thanks @Assurbanipal_II for taking the time to explain this further to me :blob_aww:. I appreciate it. Now, I get what you are saying. As long you go low, spike, low again and spike again and continue on the same pattern you can get to Trending. I can see how posting daily would 'flatten'...

    I guess that is why updating daily or multiple times a day can get you to Trending fairly easy. I guess if I cared enough I could do it but I prefer doing things at my own pace and writing quality over quantity.

    As an author, what is your take on 'reviews'?

    Yes that one. I swear I just stumbled upon it few days ago and it had a 3.3 rating on SH o_O I guess, my point still stands somewhat as there isn't much difference between the two ratings. What do you think about this idea? Let's say we fix the genre system (narrow it down more) and have a...

    Marketing? :blob_hmm: What is that? Do you eat it?
