Scene Separators, and Other functionalities: An Informative Guide to my Writing · 12:55pm Jun 9th, 2017

Hello all! It is about time I do something like this. For the next few weeks (possibly) I’ll be doing these little guides to my writing. What these will entail is little bits and bops that I do in my writing. Most of which can be figured out by looking at them... but this is a clear guide, and will basically be the rules that I follow for them. Worded a little wrong, but I’ll leave it... anyway. Below the break I will talk about... well what the title talks about: line breaks, or whatever they

Mini Guide: Getting Featured · 1:19am Jan 31st, 2017

Getting a story featured is a combination of reader count, likes vs. dislikes, age, and momentum. This means get lots of readers fast, and get them to like and comment. For subsequent chapters, you want the original readers to watch and favorite the story so they’ll be notified right away when you update.

How to get lots of readers fast:

Being a Better Writer: Ideas and Education · 7:16pm Jul 27th, 2015

Welcome back, everyone! I hope you had a productive weekend. I know I did. I did some more editing on Beyond the Borderlands (who's excited for chapter 18?) and, at long last, finished up reading Ancillary Justice and put together my thoughts on it on my other site. Whether you've heard of Ancillary Justice or not, you might find it worth a read.

About Guiding Light · 4:26pm May 29th, 2018

Is anyone still tracking this story? I'm not whining (I promise) I know it's my own fault for not posting for so long, but I'm trying to decide if I need to post the new chapter in the next couple of days or not. I've finished about half of the next chapter and if I need to I can crank out the rest in a day or so, but I wanted to make sure that at least somebody is still waiting on it before I neglect sleep to finish it. Feel free to leave me a comment and let me know, also feel free to tell me

(Dis)Continuity Guide · 1:58am Jul 30th, 2018

I've only written six stories and people are already confused about certain overarching elements in them. This is understandable, given that I haven't really explained that my stories are part of a series. This blog post is an attempt to rectify this error. This is the reading order that I believe makes the most sense for my stories, though there is an awful lot of wiggle room in there. If you want to read a given story by itself, there's usually not much need to read any earlier stories in

How to attract readers' attention, a half-baked guide regarding metadata and the like: · 5:20am Nov 30th, 2017

Disclaimer here:

This is not a guide on how to write better. Improving how you write is a matter of time and practice. This guide is a culmination of general observation and trial-and-error as to what people look for in a story and what will net you a higher view count. I'm not a spectacular writer, but I do know how to recognize what people want to see.

* And yes, I realize the inherent irony in posting this as a blog rather than as a forum thread.

Thing.

LOPE Explanation (Don't Panic) five. · 6:42am Apr 7th, 2017

Another day in the world of transit. Wouldn't I like to have a little something to break up the monotony? Unfortunately, I got my wish, even though that did not cause it, and remorse would not do anything for me, as it got no one else anywhere either.

Time to admit it - Xenophile's Guide is on hiatus · 9:28am Jun 19th, 2015

I have a bunch of half-written chapters for it. I have a bunch of half-written chapters for all my fics...

You all saw this coming. I think I'm the only one that didn't want to admit it.

Sorry guys.

Being a Better Writer: The Meandering Story · 9:55pm Feb 29th, 2016

This post can also be found at Unusual Things

Today we're tackling a topic directly. Head on. We'll be discussing a problem I often see throughout literature, especially work from new writers or in the area of fanfiction (and both are probably bolstered by the fact that most television deliberately commits this act in order to pad out run-time).

I am distraught. I am figmented. I have had my mind twisted and bent beyond explanation. I feel like I have been dumped right in the middle of a train station amongst complete and total strangers, and dumped out into the world to fend for myself. Or an elaborate shopping mall sized town buried deep within what was once a bustling major city. No one likes me very much, and around a quarter of them have an immediate leeriness about me. They will avoid me if they can help it, and they will
