Helpful spell check site. I suggest you don't use the grammar check option though, it's iffy at best.

THIS THIS THIS THIS.

What you need to understand to write a story. Not what a character is or anything basic like that; this goes deep. It's old (relatively, for the Internet), but it starts at why people read stories and ends with why constantly swapping POV is bad. I'm not sure how appropriate it is for the common level of writing on this site, but it has some good points to keep in mind. The whole site has a lot of information if you like clicking links.
