  1. Today I would like to talk about two "new" writing trends that have developed over the past 5-10 years, and 20-40 years respectfully. A new genre called LitRPG and Deep PoV. LitRPG LitRPG, or Literature Role-Playing Game, is a new genre that has started in the last 5-10 years. This type of story has a few elements that are required to be a LitRPG: The story is based on a Role-Playing Game. Can be a Virtual Game, like an MMO, or Tabletop. The story has both "real world" and "game world" elements. So Main Character lives in the real world, and the Author writes about
  2. So for the past couple of weeks, I missed posting a Topic Tuesday. The reason being was I went back to school. It's the University of Phoenix, online, designed for people are non-traditional who have Home/Work responsibilities, and has certain attendance and participation requirements. The class week runs Tuesday thru Monday. Now that we are in week three, I feel I'm starting to get a schedule that works for School, Family, and my passion for Writing. This is Time Management, which each of us has our own way to do. For me, I do home chores first, then schoolwork, and at the end of
  3. This week's topic is something I find a bit hard to do when I go to publish a story on GA: Tagging. GA has 118 story tags, and each story can currently have up to 8 tags on them. But what tags do you use for your story, in order to get someone interested in your work? We've all seen stories here on GA with very few to no tags. The Admin has even asked us to help them, by reporting those stories with suggested tags, so that they can go in and fix them. If you find that GA is lacking a tag, you can even suggest one, and the Admin might add it to the system. I've mentioned two that I'
  4. This week's topic is something I've noticed in a lot of GLBT-themed stories: Oversaturation of Homosexual Characters. Just something I've noticed lately. In several stories I've read around the net and checked out from the library, they seem to have an overpopulation of GLBT characters. If the story has Heterosexual Characters, they typically are secondary characters or the main antagonist of the story overall. This got me thinking about my own stories. Am I doing this intentionally, or subconsciously because I'm a Gay Man, and want to write about GLBT characters in my stories? Is
  5. Hello, my fellow Writers. It's been a long time since I did a Topic Tuesday; each week is a different amount of classwork, that I have to budget time for. Anyway, this week I'd like to talk about GA's writing clubs. If you are reading this, congrats! You know how the writing clubs work. But, did you know? GA has several different writing clubs that you can be a part of. The one we are in now is the main one for us authors, and regular members who choose to be here, can talk and work with each other. In the other clubs, things are a bit more specialized. GA has a Fantasy, SciFi, Poe
  6. We are all writers, and we've discussed before about "how we write." Today I want to discuss writing tools. Recently I download the Free Trial to Scrivener and have been testing it out. So far, so good and I like it. I also use MS Office Suite and recently was able to upgrade to Office2016. I also us a lot of Role-Playing aids to keep track of characters, and locations. You can find several free ones on DriveThruRPG.com. Online, I read writing articles, use google to look up words for both spelling and definition. There are many more like Name Generators, prompts, other random gene
  7. I was in transit yesterday, coming home from an Epic Weekend of immersive storytelling. Otherwise known as, "I was getting my nerd on by playing some Dungeons and Dragons." So, I apologize for not posting this yesterday. Before I start this week's topic if anyone has suggestions for Topic Tuesday, please feel free to share them, or Start a Topic Tuesday (or any topic), and we can work together. "Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen." - John Steinbeck I've always heard that Steinbeck's quote above was the founda
  8. Hello fellow writers. This week's topic is about supporting each other. What do you do to support other Writers here on Gay Authors? Do you talk to them on the forums, or in Private Messages? Do you read their works? Do you leave Reactions, Comments, or Reviews on their chapters and stories? or Do you tear them down? Do you alienate them? Do you show disdain for others because they are beneath you? GA is a community of likeminded Writers, overall the experiences I have had here have been overwhelmingly positive. Though I've experienced
  9. Let me paint a picture for you. It happens to all writers at one time or another. How you get over a block, is different for each of us. For me, I try switching to a different story, most of the time that works for me. Or I go and read some stories here on GA, or the latest novel I'm reading. Take a walk, or even fire up either EvE Online, or Star Wars: The Old Republic, and blow stuff up to relieve some stress. Eventually, I'll find my way back to the story I was working on. So, how do you handle the block?
  10. There's been a lot of topics the past couple of weeks on Inspiration. So, today let's talk about the next step after inspiration strikes: notes and research. Notes For me, after I catch a figment of inspiration I jot it down in my "Notes Journal." I have several of them, from old fashion pen-and-paper notebooks to digital using OneNote by Microsoft. These notes can be as simple as a brief one-sentence description, a fully outlined scene, or just a character name jotted down for later. It's easier to work in digital because I can collate notes that belong together.
  11. Entertainment vs Commentary on Human Condition is this week's topic. I was originally going to do one on Infodumps and why they are good and needed in Fantasy/SciFi stories, despite what publishers and those that adhere to dogmatic writing rules, say. But after reading @Carlos Hazday's blog entry called "Stories so White," I felt the need to switch up topics. This is also a topic, that I've discussed several times with my Non-GA friends, who I play tabletop RPGs with. While the majority, of this topic, is based on my opinions, I am going to show a couple of examples. Human Conditio
  12. Jimmy Buffett once said in a song, "There's a fine line between Saturday Night and Sunday Morning." The same holds true for a writer when writing their story, the plot and character agency. First a quick definition of what Character Agency is. From Michigan State University website: With the technical stuff out of the way, let's discuss agency. For me, Agency is a way to connect to the character. I'm an avid Role-Player of the tabletop version. You may have seen several of my postings across GA about playing different RPGs, such as Dungeons and Dragons. C
  13. Last week, I entered into a discussion about my work here on GA, with some fellow writers. Willingly, of course, and described to them my serial story The Half-Elven Warlock. I included what is already publicly known and published on this site, and my outline and worldbuilding documents. All my behind the scene secrets that not even my editing team knows, and other details about my world The Fairie. This discussion was frank, and I knew they would intentionally pick it apart to tell me, where I might be lacking. By the time it was over, I was depressed, angry, boarderline in tears,
  14. This week's topic is on the superpower that we Authors have. It's called "The Power of Plot," and "Handwavium." Like most fictional superpowers this one that has both good and bad aspects to it. First some definitions... Handwavium - Any hypothetical but unobtainable material with desirable engineering properties. (Wiktionary) The Power of Plot a/k/a Plot Armor - Plot Armor is when a main character's life and health are safeguarded by the fact that he's the one person who can't be removed from the story. (TV Tropes) As writers, we love to tell stories. We craft our
  15. This week's topic is something, I find common among any group of people: Disagreements. Disagreements are going to happen. I forget where I heard this saying, but it goes like this: "As long as there are two people still living on Earth, there will be war. We are all Cain and Able." It's human nature to disagree with one another, even though humans are a herd animal. I was reminded of this topic on Reddit yesterday when a thread I was reading spiraled into a shouting match between people's different ideologies. There was no attempt at a peaceful dialogue, once the shouting started
  16. This week's Topic Tuesday is a fairly straightforward question: How Do You Write? Some people use a desktop computer, some a laptop, or even a tablet. Some can write using their smartphone, and others like the tactile sensation of pen on paper. There are even some of us that use typewriters, both mechanical and electronic. We all have our preferences when it comes to writing, and for me, I use both pen and paper, and digital. Why do I use these methods? Well, for pen and paper, it's easy to carry, and quick to use when I need to jot something down, or I think of a scene
  17. On the advice of a good GA friend, I was able to check out a copy of On Writing by Stephen King. It's a book about how he was formed into a writer, and a couple of exercises in it as well. I've read about a quarter of it so far, and as of right now, I would recommend it to all writers to read. So, what about you. Have you read this book? Have you read a writing related book, you feel is a great read for writers to learn a bit about our craft? Let's talk, and let's work together. OP Side Note: Topic Tuesday is something, that I'm starting, on my own initiat
  18. This week's topic is working with a team. Since I've joined GA, I've had several people that have helped me with my writing. When I was still in the moderation queue, @Cia gave me some great advice on one story, we took it down, and I rewrote it. She's been invaluable with story related questions on content, and speaking with some new authors to GA, they praise her for being fair, and knowledgeable. Most of my first story I posted on GA Aeris - Guardian Force, I used family members to help edit. That was a mistake. After that, I started working with @Kitt who has helpe
  19. It's Tuesday, and you know what that means... time for another Topic Tuesday! This week lets talk about your approach to Character Development. In most stories, there's going to be at least one Character, or you can be like War and Peace, that epic Russian novel that has 600 Named Characters in 1440 pages. That's a lot to keep track of! Character Development is a basic tool and artform that writers quickly become proficient at as they continue to write. I've read several different ways people approach creating a character, that I can tell y'all this: there is no right way, or wrong
