While rp’ing everyone runs into problems. These can be that the rp doesn’t have as much activity as wanted but can also be personal problems.
One of this is:
There’s a thread about your fears while RPing but in it, it’s mostly sharing and not how you can solve them, so feel free to link your fears here as well and let’s give each other tips on how to reduce those fears a little.
For me one of the things I get uncertain of while RPing is:
Comparing myself with others.
I keep looking at how others write their posts and worry I’m not writing good responses and whenever or not my way of writing in a combination with my vocabulary in the English language is enough to satisfy the person I’m writing with.
But I’ve learned to let go of that since everyone has their own style and way of writing. It’s the same as talking. One person might be blunt and use simple words while someone else uses richer words and more variety. both are fine as long as you get the story across.
Something else you might run into is:
I’ve seen so many people bicker about how long an post should be, and yes, sometimes longer posts are nice to have since you have more to work with when you recieve them, but if you’re not goot at writing long posts, just try to give the other person a specific amount of information they can use.
for example I tell myself that I need to give them at least 5 different points of information of which at least 1 should be new or or at least initiate a new action.
This way you will always reach that 5 sentence limit that most rp have and your RP partner has something to work with.
So @RPers feel free to give your own advice and problems you have run into and maybe we can help each other to fix them
