Welcome to Struggling Authors. Here, if you feel as though your stories are not being recognized for all that they are, if you want to receive constructive criticism and input, if you are an editor and proofreader and are looking for things to preview, or if you just want to hang around and read some pretty great stuff, then join us here at Struggling Authors. Everyone and everything is welcome here.

Regarding the forum and posting threads, tread softly on that. I'm fine with threads but take it easy on posting new threads so that the forum doesn't flood. I'll monitor the forum and delete threads that aren't getting any attention. Other than that, I don't have any problems.

I hope you enjoy the stay.

Set after Wonderbolts Academy but before Magical Mystery Cure. Rainbow Dash still remembers the Mare Do Well incident that taught her an important lesson: Real heroes don't brag. However, her sense of loyalty compels her to be the hero for ponies in need again, and with a trip to Cloudsdale just around the corner for her, Rainbow sees an opportunity for a fresh start in heroics as the very symbol of heroism who had taught her grace and humility. She couldn't have picked a better time, however, as a new enemy arrives in Cloudsdale that will pose a threat bigger then she could have imagined!

Hello I'm twipie! I need some help with a story I'm working on. Mostly with grammar, consistency and spelling errors. So I can better improve my story.


Yep after three months of searching I still haven’t found someone who will review my story.

Please help if you can?

Your choice mate

(Edit: when I was first attempting to get the story reviewed it was only 20-000’s now 50-000. I don’t need a full review. Just the first fifteen chapters)

Hello, I've been on this site for a few years now.

I have a story that I started working on back in 2013 but haven't been able to finish due to real life stuff getting in the way:

So... I'm not only looking for someone to help me finish this story (due to me wanting to create an episodic series that takes places after the story) , but I'm looking for constructive criticism and proofreading to help improve my craft as a writer.

If youre into adventure, HIE, crazy scientists, cute ponies and plutonium-238, then check out my silly story.

Gimme your honest opinion. I have a few dislikes, but no criticism in the comments so far... But do at least read the first 2 chapters ^.^

Hello all! I've been working on a story I was pretty proud of, but it seems to be somewhat disliked. I would love it if you could give me your brutal and honest thoughts on it to point me in the right direction.

Hello everyone! I've been a member of this site for roughly 6-7 months. I joined at some point in December, though I have been writing for quite some time before hand. Two of my stories on this site were written (or at least started) before I joined. Thus I've been posting my MLP work here and on the other site ( I just learned about this group today after searching around, and decided to join in. I'm always looking for feedback on my work so anyone interested is more than welcome to leave some. Of course, I'm always looking for a good read too so I'll try to glance at some stories in here as well. :pinkiehappy:

Hello, everyone. I just joined to this fantastic site and group. I'm writting an Equestria Girls fanfiction with an interesting plot I got inspired a few weeks ago. Hope you enjoy. The story is already posted in this group but I will also leave the link.

Just write stories and sit back with a bag of popcorn and watch the world burn.

How do you motivate yourself to write in today's political climate?

I'll read it as long as it's rated nothing higher than E

Hiya! Just joined!

Hello! I'm this group's newest member!
Just wanted to say, this group is a really cool idea, and I hope to improve my writing using it!

Hey guys, been writing since October on my first story, (WWC) World War Changeling which is about a group of human survivors, living in a world where Chrysalis and a few Changelings who didn't betray her who take over America. The survivors run into Twilight, Celestia, Luna and company and join together to overthrow Chrysalis, once and for all. Right now my story has one like and for some reason, 6 dislikes, but all I wish is for people to actually give it a chance! I'm still new to the whole writing fanfiction stuff, and would love if you told me what you thought of it in the comments, instead of disliking it. Thank you for your time.

Hello, i've made a story and I would love if someone would give me constructive criticism so I may improve on future stories I write. And would love to help anyone else if they're having the same problem.

I'm a new/novice author and am trying to write a story of my own. I'm looking for folks to help me with character creation (making the character more human) and making a sequence into an actual story. I've asked for help on the Authors Helping Authors group and was directed here by the summary/description? there. I hope to hear back from someone soon and hope to learn much from this project. Thanks for your time and I wish you all a wonderful day.


Decided this is likely where my current story belongs. I am up to about 44,000 words at this moment, 17 chapters. Fairly regular updates, sometimes two updates a day. Not much reader traffic at all. Two reader comments. Seven likes, two dislikes. I don't know if I have tagged it wrong, if the description is too dull, or what. But the story gets no readers. So adding Pearlwort to this group in hopes I can get some feedback.

Hello, there, I'm SR24DET, I'm a new member. Every day I get new ideas for stories I'd love to write, but I literally have no experience writing them. I was hoping to get some help with a one-shot story I've been writing since June, I barely work on it before deleting it and start over again. Thanks in advance, have a good one.

Hello, I'm StealBox. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in helping me complete my story Severance. I've kind of reached a road block in my writing and don't really know how to clear it. It's an AU HiE story involving the Changelings.

I would appreciate any help that comes my way, thank you :)
