    New novel on WuxiaWorld, by the author of A Monster Who Levels Up.
    Only the prologue and 3 chapters out right now, but more to come.

    Link: https://www.wuxiaworld.com/novel/the-novels-extra
    Nu: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/the-novels-extra/

    Description:
    Waking up, Kim Hajin finds himself in a familiar world but an unfamiliar body.

    A world he created himself and a story he wrote, yet never finished.

    He had become his novel's extra, a filler character with no importance to the story.

    The only clue to escaping is to stay close to the main storyline.

    However, he soon finds out the world isn't exactly identical to his creation.



    Pretty interesting start, i will follow this one as long it does not turn out like A Monster Who Levels Up.

    Totally agreed. Beginning is very intriguing. Might turn out one of my favorites, if only does not turn out like A Monster Who Levels Up...
    By the way, is there a link to the raws?

    novel. munpia. com / 112155

    Now, how do you use translate on munpia? Story's interesting so far - like all Korean stories are the beginning. But let's see where it goes. Every other similar story of this type is invariably BL, so I am tentatively following this.

    Monster who lvl up suffered from scope expansion - author introduced so many things which he didn't know what to do with in the end - which was unsatisfactory and hurriedly put together in the last few arcs. If he's learnt his lesson, this could be good.

    It’s good so far and I like how MC is a side character, just being ignored by everyone but is there a ‘Main Character’ in this story since it’s a world he wrote?

    I'm a bit disappointed of this chapter 6... I would like the MC to prove them wrong and make a new way to become stronger with the gun and make the weakest weapon into the strongest but he said he would switch to a bow eventually....

    Hah?
    Why? What happened?
    I stopped reading A Monster Who levels up for a long while, but there wasn't anything deterring.

    Well, if anything else, I stopped reading in a quite interesting part, so I'm kind of lost here...

    Its one of the novels with a very good start, decent later on, but the ending ruined it all, its one of the worst kind of endings you can read.
    There was quite a LOT of disappointment over the ending of a Monster Who Levels Up, mainly cause what happens to the MC.

    Well I have been reading it lately, and I am enjoying it quite a lot, hope it doesn't suffer as A Monster Who Levels Up, now that was quite the twist, the actions he needs to take will put him in a conflicting path to some of the main characters of his novel, wondering who or what is the one rewriting the Novel.

    I enjoyed the plot twist but I am dreading the romance, last time out the romance was pretty horrible in the other novel.
    Sometimes, I wish male authors don't write important female characters since they obviously have no idea how to write believable ones

    That's true, let's be honest sometimes they even screw up the males ones. The romance in the other novel was sloppy as heck and I am sure that one of the reasons it had such an open ending was because the author didn't know how to transition from a monogamy relationship to an harem. I really hope no romance to develop here. Since his role as an extra shouldn't allow the MC to truly connect with anyone to actually been involved in a relationship.

    Yeah. Romance is more difficult than action. You can just throw two people into a room and have them throw punches
    It does not help that Asians are pretty bad at romance in real life: Japanese do not use the phrase: I love you
    It becomes even more difficult to express feelings in a book when there are no expressions like in manga or dramas.
    That is why I do not bother with Asian romance novels for the most part
    Smart authors like Epoch of Twilight know that sex is better. Friends with benefits is better than a slow romance without communication in an all text medium
