  • @weebmetalorange So you’ve watched Bakuman, I’m sure it’ll give you plenty of inspirations πŸ˜€

  • @weebmetalorange
    finished reading your story long ago, i went to take another look at it just to verify this review but it was removed, first of all congratz on being published, it means you are on the right track, But don’t you dare slack off or think that you have reached your goals, you just started, and from now on it gets tougher and tougher!…[Read more]

    • There is a manga drawing tournament in the first chapter πŸ™‚ Unfortunately, can’t send the draft according to the contract. Sorry πŸ™

  • Let’s get a poll going! I do these a lot to just gather opinions and unite the community we have here. So, most of us here like light novels a lot (I never read a light novel though…). That’s a great interest to have in literature. But, what about manga? That’s why I want to know, what are your guys favorite manga series and why? What genre of…[Read more]

  • @weebmetalorange @weebmetalorange I read your first chapter. I like it! It looked like a mix of Pet Girl of Sakurasou and Bakuman (need to finish that anime). The characters are all funny and enjoyable. It will be interesting to see what Akari Ise learns from such unique characters. This may be just me, but I see a family theme in the mix. I’ve…[Read more]

    • Thank you very much. That was actually one of themes I wanted to explore. The way that family isn’t just a relation by blood, but an extension made by reaching out to people. I’m glad that you enjoyed it πŸ™‚

  • @sora-hana @thaddeus @javon-sankoh Finally, I got all my files and everything sent to Vic for my publication. Now, I can finally join the REAL rivalry against RestartXDays and The Everlasting! Bakuman Light Novel Edition hype!

    • Good job, @weebmetalorange! I hope Vic accepts your novel proposal. Your novel will probably sell well. Which reminds me, I should read so that I can give you my opinion! What is it called?

      • Square One πŸ™‚ Its already accepted. When Vic accepts a novel, he emails you asking for the book files after you sign a contract. I just sent in those book files so now I just have to wait for a preorder window

        • Oh, nevermind, then that’s great! So, that’s how the process works 😕 Okay, I’ll read Square One and give you my review 👍

    • Nice. I’m still not confident of how I market my novel though… got any ideas? Marketing was the hardest part in terms of self publishing πŸ˜€

      • Well, the first thing that came into mind would be having a ton of books to follow-up. I mean this through two ways. First, having a book series will keep people hooked into your story. The more volumes you have, the higher the chance of consumers not dismissing your story at first glance. This applies greatly when there are positive reviews over…[Read more]

        • Thanks for the words of wisdom! I know that wasn’t directed towards me 😅 but what you said was very useful. To show you my appreciation, I’ll read Triple Orb Academy and tell you my thoughts on it 😉

          • Thanks, like wise with you. Boy you sure are getting busy, 7 chapters? I need to reserve some time for some solid reading lol

            • Actually, only the 1st chapter is legit. I’m scrapping the others 😅 That’s what happens when you rush plot and don’t have much knowledge. I’m currently working on the second chapter. I would still appreciate it if you could read it when you get the chance. I’m still an amateur so it would nice to get tips from an expert like how to express emotions

        • Thanks for sharing the knowledge. I honestly have the same idea. Right now, I’m planning to release a double series. Infinite Days will be the published while X Days will be a webnovel. Since the story is related, I just hope that once my readers liked the webnovel, they’ll also have the urge to purchase the published novel. Nevertheless, the…[Read more]

    • All the best! Looking forward to getting my hands on a copy:)

    @weebmetalorange Hi Shafiek, here’s my feedback for Square One Vol 1☺

    Overall, it’s a professional piece of work. I don’t think you have to worry about the publication.

    Language:
    Language is straight 10/10 with minimal to no errors of any sorts. In fact, your chapters are so clean that you really make me envious.

    Story prese…[Read more]

    • I totally agree with your review! The story was indeed supposed to take a more light hearted turn for the first volume. I wanted something that would just introduce the characters and dynamics so if it did that, the volume accomplished its goals. I agree, I didn’t leave much room for volume 2. In truth, I wasn’t planning on making a volume 2…[Read more]

  • Wow, @weebmetalorange, you have a cousin who works Studio Bones! That’s awesome!😆 You really think they would adapt an English light novel?

  • That’s good! I have a cousin who’s working as an animation director for Studio Bones so it might be a possibility for me πŸ™‚

    @weebmetalorange Wendy Natsuki, tsk, tsk, tsk, of course, every story has to have a loli. I’m really enjoying this. We should really compare our notes.

    • Gotta bring that loli fan art in, ya’ know? Fun fact: Wendy Natsuki was supposed to be the main character of this light novel! However, I felt like having her do insightful thinking would be mostly unbelievable at her age so Akari was made the main character. That also made the ratio of male to female members of Agito Karasu 1:1.

  • Strovist posted an update 1 week ago

    @weebmetalorange I don’t care how you do relationships in your story, but I’m shipping Akari and Suzuko

  • Great, that’s perfect! Hopefully, that happens to me some day! Thanks @WeebmetalOrange and @Vic

  • Say, the author is approached by an anime company, does the writer have the right to confirm a go-ahead for anime adaptation?

  • The more and more I see SAO, it just makes me remember my burning hate for Reki Kawahara. That idiot ruined virtual worlds for damn near everybody!!

  • Anyone read the entire volume 1 of Square One yet? I just finished the revised illustrations for the actual publishing. Just wanna get at least 1 review to just get a ballpark of how the public might interpret the volume as a whole. I think @sora-hana was reading it, but i’m not sure if she finished.

    • I have only read 2 chapters of it though. πŸ˜€ Why don’t you post it on different websites first? About the revised illus… I want to see it.

    • Am on it. Will give you a feedback soon

  • Been so obsessed with Persona 5 over the last few weeks. Definitely gonna take away some of their storytelling concepts because that game is just… YOULL NEVER SEE IT COMING!!

  • @Vic Just a warning to all of you. There are some people joining the site asking for proposals about saving money with you. This is a scam and none of you should respond or agree to this person’s terms. They send you “photos” of themselves to gain your empathy. Do not fall for it and report them if you are approached by them.

    • These spamming members would send a private message to users and provide their email. Do not email them. I’ve deleted accounts that did this, but if you know of any others, please report them.

  • Let’s get a poll going! So a lot of us are writers and we genuinely have a lot to tell. Maybe we want to highlight a problem here, in reality, tackle a personal problem, or if you’re like me, just vent our your frustrations and problems in a nice story. There are so many creative ways to express ourselves. For example, @locomotive and I like to do…[Read more]

  • @byakugan-amr@sora-hana @thaddeus Does anyone ever get those moments where you scrap one story for another one? Im the type of person who frequently switches stories and cant stick to one when Im writing. This is a survey question since this is something Im gonna touch upon in Square One Volume 2 so any response and explanations would be much appreciated.

    • Ah! The manifestation of the dilemma! I’m sure we all experienced this one way or another. I supposed it depends on the person’s frequency in getting into the writing mood, and it is entirely dependent on the inspirational materials he/she would encounter on the daily basis. Since you are researching this for Square One, I’ll do you the favour of…[Read more]

    • Oh. That is a very interesting issue when it comes to us… Well, here is my personal experience:

      I am the type who don’t want to drop my stories. Since I love multiple genres, it’s hard for me to write something if I’m not in the mood for it. e.g. there’s an instance that I want to write psychological strategic stories, also, there are times…[Read more]
