Hi, I'm new to Iwaku and I've been writing and rping for a while but never felt like it was...as rich as I'd like it to be. I've wanted to improve my skills for quite some time but always lacked the direction. If anyone is willing to give me pointers on how to improve or rp as well, I'd absolutely love the help. Naturally, I'd prefer constructive criticism. Hit me up if you're interested!

Romance, Fantasy. Always some kind of non-human involved. (Such a vampires, succubi, incubi, etc.)

Futuristic, horror, monster girl encyclopedia, robotics, ghouls.
I'm here if you need any pointers! I take long hiatus breaks for way too long, but the thing I found helps me most is ALL in the descriptions. First off:

"She walked down the street and turned into the building."

Could very easily be:

"Her footsteps danced down the street, emerald eyes gazing about as the moon held high in the sky. A light breeze brushed her raven hair behind her shoulder, lithe frame turning to enter into the ornate door frame."

It's ALL about descriptions. How would you describe your house, or what the weather is like?

When you're replying to someone, work off their post; read a couple sentences then respond to just that part, what your character is feeling and thinking, then read more, then write more, etc.

Hope that helped!
