    Thanks everyone! I've currently got two complete and working on a third, once I finish it I'll start releasing them slowly. My schedule is crazy being a mom during the day and then working at night, so I like the idea of having some saved up because I never know what the week may bring.

    Question.

    When beginning a new story, do you write up a few chapters before you start releasing them? What sort of posting schedule do you do in the beginning? Once a week? Or a few to grab the readers attention and then after a while once a week kind of thing?

    I suggest write up and schedule a few chapters to start off with. That way you got a buffer and your readers won't have to wait too long.

    As for a posting schedule, don't worry about one; just write and release when possible. Less pressure to meet a deadline that way.

    I needed this answer, so thank you from me, too! :)

    Hi all! I'm back. :lol: I think I'll have an easier time writing and being a SimLit community member this time. I hope that my motivation and state of being are sufficient for it to happen.

    hey guys? What could be my characters' various strengths to recuse Jay (whos been kidnapped?) Melissa is a bit of a flirt (but she's has a boyfriend), Leah's the magic person, Elliot's basically Jay from Descendant and then there's Selene (my main character at the moment) and Prince James (royalty but he's going to be in disguse to help recuse Jay)

    speaking of kids this year the girls who live next door are going to be a Shepard/Shepard in training at Bible Camp this year which also means that Monday-Friday they're going to be walking to the church with Mom and I.

    I don't like that I don't like my story's early chapter. It's pretty bad (I think) at least compared to the recent stuff. I'm just hoping new people who starts reading did not stop in the bad part of my stories. Especially that the first few chapters are just me trying new stuff.

    @AkramA THIS!I was also nervous about my first chapters, cuz they were kinda nasty compared to my most recent ones, to the point I just decided to change some things ont the earlier chapter insert more description, take out the billon times used''said'', among many things, so it wasn't as bad as I thought it was. :s

    i had kind of the same issue. the benders went from sweet ans funny to serious . i blame ayden. we got in a argument a wwhile back and he cheated to win it. he threw up which i had nothing to do with.

    @Sourocha
    I wish I could change some of the words, hehehe. It's harder since I made them into comic already.

    I actually don't mind the word "said" especially that I want to know who says what without infering to anything. It's sometimes hard to remember who says what. Although, I understand why some might think it's repetitive, but my mind is not working like others.

    LOL i literally just came on here to ask this question!

    I'm already two chapters into my new story and I feel like there's not much going on. I have so much planned for this story,but it takes a while to build up the story! I always worry that people will read and get bored :(. I tend to use the first few chapters to introduce characters and then get into the deeper stuff. I definitely did that with my other story so that gives me hope, since so many people kept reading :)

    Just be careful what you wish for the biggest argument i had with ayden was because he wanted more drama i said no then he threw up, no i'm not kidding. but he got his way he cheated to d it but i caved.

    oh myabsence this afternoon is all sissy fault (cathtea) she dropped eso on mr a while back when i get stressed i play it.
