For those of you reading this and actually giving a damn, I'm Julie. I'm a twenty year old college kid who's been writing for around ten years now. I don't know it all and I'm not the greatest but it's what I love and it's what I'll always be doing.
Writing Advice From A Theatre Geek
1. Try to make your dialogue sound natural. Say it out loud as you write so you can hear what it'll sound like. That way you won't have any unintentionally awkward sentences. Intentionally awkward ones are fun though.
2. Double check your facts. Don't write something in one chapter and then have something in the next that totally contradicts it. It confuses your readers and that's mean.
3. When it comes to fanfic, keep the characters that aren't yours in character. Unless the story is AU or you've told your readers that you want the character OOC, it just seems like you aren't putting in a ton of effort.
4. Write what you know. Don't try to write an NC-17 scene if you're twelve years old and never been kissed. It's just a bad idea.
5. Spell check is your friend. One of the most annoying things is reading a story filled to the brim with spelling and grammar errors. I know no one's perfect but it's not that hard to hit spell check and let the computer do it for you.
6. Take constructive criticism gracefully. Don't flip out the first time someone doesn't give you a five star review. It comes with the territory.
