Herpy.nu will close down in January 2018 - will be replaced by something new and better.

Herpy has had a good 13 year run and will never be forgotten for those of us who experienced it. Sadly the site is today unappealing and is no longer fit for the audience of 2018, and years of smear campaigns have given us a reputation that has been hard to shake. We therefore made the choice to close the site and move on to a brighter future. While the forums will be archived as a memory of times of past greatness, new funds have been raised and new admins have been recruited to start working on a entire new community far away from Bad Dragon and any association with that company. The gallery will remain operational in the meantime. You can follow me on Twitter for further developments. We also have a Discord server which has become the heart of the community. If you wish to join it, send a PM to Valcyrie.

Herpy have always been my little lovechild since I joined over a decade ago. But he grew up, and as he has aged with dignity its time for his hatchling to take over. A fresh start for a new generation in a new era.

Kind regards,
Valcyrie

Thanks! ^-^ Character development is probably my most favorite part of writing. =3

Thanks! I use Calibri size 11, but I also add an extra space after my paragraphs (so there is a whole line between my paragraphs) for formatting purposes. From what I've posted so far, there are 97 pages total and just a hair under 30,000 words total. So I guess my chapters average about 3,000 words each, which would be about 9ish pages each, but they do vary. ^-^

:O Wow... and I struggle with 2000-3000 word stories and essays... actually really impressive. I would have guessed that at like 30 pages... narrative goes so quickly.

I struggle with 500 word essays or anything nonfiction. XD But I used to struggle writing upwards of 3k words too. It just gets easier over time, and these 3k word chapters are rather easy now because I usually do about 10k chunks instead. Breaking the chunks up like this makes it feel a lot easier to get content out.

I actually just reached 50k words (163 pages) for this story last night. ^-^ Just need to go through, edit, and get them posted.

The essays i had to write for school last year were rather easy for me, but the ones in english for my english institute... I share your struggle there.
As for short stories, no struggle whatsoever. Have you considered sending this to a publishing house once it's finished?

It's waaay easier for me to write fiction. XD And I have considered it! We'll have to see when I get there. ^-^ There will definitely be a lot of editing done though.

Agreed. Writing stories is far easier. In fact, when i was doing the FCE, i got the chance of writing one and i exceeded the word limit by 40 words. And if you do publish it, send a copy my way. Along with the plushies.

Liking how everyone's developing. And you know what, i sometimes wonder how would you be as a roleplayer.

Nice one! I agree - you should look into RPing. You would be really interesting - although given your writing you'd probably post a few pages worth in a post :D.

I used to publicly roleplay here and there, but it's just not an interest of mine, sadly. XD I used to mostly privately roleplay, dabbling in a lot of erotic content, but I've seemed to lost interest in that too. Now, I mostly just roleplay with my mate. =P
