"How to write stories like a real author?" Before you're good at making stories, you were a beginner like Asher. Asher Westergard is a teenage boy whose dreams of becoming an author are coming to life, but he struggles to write a story that can be enjoyed by readers. By chance he met Esther Violette, the acting librarian (Warning: Do not mess with her) who gladly helped him and became his teacher. "Will he be able to fullfil his dreams?" "If you don't shut up I'll sew that mouth of yours, even if it means breaking the fourth wall." Esther's voice was heard. "He's just telling the description." Asher's voice as well.

Hey there! Good day for writing! If you wanted to see whether you can get paid by distributing the current work or getting financial support by writing new work, you might want to contact keraringdom@gmail.com. A brief introduction, some sample chapters or links will be appreciated when reaching out.


As you start reading it should become immediately obvious that the author has a lot of passion about this story. However, passion, in this case, only translates to rapid updates. Let's delve into some of the issues then. First of all, the characters. The characters are all lifeless and without emotion or charm and are all pretty uninteresting apart from Ether (as of chapter 2). Ether has charm and shows a wide array of emotions, but is mainly energetic and bossy, however, not bossy to the point of being annoying. The main character, Asher, is completely devoid of personality. He doesn't show a single emotion at all, nor does respond like a human being. That goes for every other character. Parker shows some emotion and reminds me of a shouta tsundere. Despite him still being a pretty bad character so far with his 4 or so lines of dialogue (as of chapter 2) it's still better than the rest of the cast. I also noticed that everyone seems to think that Asher is this absolute prodigy and should become an author at once. The evidence we get is an extremely generic story about a brave knight taking off his armour. The writing. It's painfully average to say the least, numerous grammatical errors and punctuation mistakes. Not to mention that when Asher thinks, regular quotation marks are used instead of apostrophes. So you only find out he's thinking when the author types "thought Asher". Other than that, it's pretty harmless. Stability of updates. So far, 5/5, very clear the author loves what he's doing. World background and world building. We know absolutely nothing about this world, but it's safe to assume that it's the same as ours. However we're only a few chapters in so it's excusable. Pacing. WAY TOO FAST SLOW DOWN PLEASE. I guess story development could go here as well. That being said it's a pretty interesting story and has potential, it's the one thing that's keeping me intrigued. Dialogue. Very unrealistic and boring, but sometimes the banter between Asher and Ether is mildly enjoyable. Overall, it's not that great, but what pulls it up is the premise and overall charm of the environments. Characters are bad but bearable, Ether is kinda carrying to be honest. Not bad. 3/5
