    As a reader do you like to have the choice to impact a story's plot or it does it turn you off?

    While I can’t say I haven’t ever drawn inspiration from my readers. I can say that I chose to remain fiercely independent in my plotting. Only the author knows the whole story and readers only know partial context which make their suggestions flawed.

    What is stopping you from writing more?

    A full-time job and also feel like my writing is worthless. I know it doesn't make that much sense even though, my main novel has 2.1k readers, but mean comments hurt, and I just went through a pretty painful book querying process recently. Still trying to move past it.

    What are good books to help me write a competent guild master? I am thinking of reading "The Prince" and "Art of War".

    Don't bother reading the Prince if you want to learn politics, it's inaccessible for a layman and you will have to rely on secondary sources anyway. Also, it's highly contextual and not worth reading. Source: Trust me I have a degree and had to read it, for SEVERAL courses. If you want to...

    Am I being targeted? (I might be tripping idk)

    While, I agree with this to some extent, it's going to be difficult to pretend like criticism doesn't hurt at. It still hurts to read bad reviews, and while I can get over them(I.E. not be butthurt about it.) they still dig into the pysche a little. Also there are the people who are overly...

    How much dialog is too much?

    Depends on the scene, if every scene is dialogue heavy then there’s something wrong, if it happens occasionally there’s nothing to be concerned about

    How much did you pander to the audience?

    Since I write for myself, I pander myself when I want. I think reader impression of a story is very important. Sometimes it's difficult to distinguish reader outrage because the story is enticing and an annoying event happened v.s. the story being bad. This is why following your own internal...

    Branching out from popular tropes

    I have seen way too many authors come onto this forum thinking that there is some sort of magical formula for becoming popular. I've even responded to several threads of people who followed the "formula" to success and found that nobody wanted to read their work despite the fact that they had...
