Welcome to MR!

Just getting started is always the biggest step. Don't let not having all the answers yet keep you from starting though. You'll never know everything, and what you think you know will often change. Second drafts exist for a reason.

It's very nice coloring though! It's giving me super strong vibes from a certain managaka's coloring style, but their name just isn't coming to me right now. I feel closer every time I look at it, but it's just not breaking through!

In short: very professional looking!

The time for that rule to be in affect passed about 100 pages ago.

Well we'll miss you, but have a good break Suuper! We all need time away from the net occasionally. See you when we see you!

Sorry y'all, no chapter this week. I promise it will be out next Sunday. It's just that this one was a doozy, and I have just not had the time to sit down and edit this weekend. So once again, my apologies for the delay, but look on the bright side, y'all now have plenty of time to catch up if maybe you've fallen behind a chapter or two  ;)

I mean, as a general rule you shouldn't worry about whether something has been 'done before'. Now obviously, don't go ripping of Naruto, but if you're looking for things your story is similar to, you'll never see the end of it. Just hop in and make it your own thing, and no one will notice.

Now, as for the story itself, it's... Contrasting with itself? It's really hard to say without seeing actual writing from the story, but going from dark web snuff livestreams to "they're in a band!" Seems like one hell of a jump. Once you're at the band part, where even is the focus going to be? It doesn't seem right to concentrate on the music itself, because that would almost make it a farce.

Plus, what do these mysterious dark web people even need a music slave for anyway? Couldn't they just hire a normal band and not risk exposing their operation by having the slave band going out in public? Wouldn't it be better to have them in a more controlled environment?

The way I see it, you've got two stories that you're trying to make into one. There's the dark web snuff industry story, and then there's the story of a singer trying to get out from under the thumb of a criminal organization. It's not that the two can't be mixed, but that will require actual writing to judge. So you can definitely pursue that if it's what you want, but I think you can keep the singer/band component, lose the dark web snuff film thing, and half a cleaner and stronger set up for a story because of it.

After all, what defines great writing is often less what is there, and more what isn't there.

I hope that gives you some food for thought!

We don't set one above the other. Description is just as important to a script as dialogue is. Dialogue doesn't do you any good if you don't know what's going on.

Adding stuff to your signature is super easy! Just go up to the top of the page there, click Profile > Modify Profile > Forum Profile.

Once you're on that page, just scroll down to the signature box, type/paste in what you want, and then save it at the bottom of the page!

Protip: use a short link generator like tinyurl or Google. There is a character limit to the signatures, so that will save you space.

I think what DeAngelus is trying to get across is that we need more context. A good name is informed by the world that it exists in. We could throw out random names all day, but if they don't fit your world, we would just be spinning our wheels.

I hope that helps

Start by posting some of your work! The best way is to bite that bullet and get your stuff out there! Also get out and review other people's work! If you put in the time to start, others will meet you in kind. Consider it a show of good faith, and good manners.

Anything below 0 may be cold, but y'all look at 20 and think "warm"? Really? How often do you need to know the boiling point of water in every day Life? Freaking never. And i get using celcius for science, but it just does not help for your average joe. and as you point out, it's much better to use Kelvin then anyway!

And your map is incorrect Vacant my friend, because there are still countries in Africa and Asia that use imperial. And don't sit up on that British high horse either! I know you people can't commit to either system of measurements! You just opted for a bastard child of the two!

And while we're there, y'all measure weight in increments of 14 pounds! That makes so much less sense than anything we use in America! At least base 12 is a thing! (And arguably better than base 10, if we could commit to it)

Haha! I love the balding guy up there. Young characters that look old is an underserved trope. (Well, when it's not being used for creepy ends, I should say.)

Oh definitely! Burn out happens to the best of us. It's nothing to be ashamed of. Shame only comes when you give up entirely.

I plug it so hard because it t has just been that revolutionary for me. I'm sure it won't work for absolutely everyone, bit if it's done me this much good, there's gotta be something to it.

Celcius is lie invented by the French because they were mad at the king. It's not even based on water anymore, and has little relation to the human experience.

Fight me.
