A couple of tips for Fanfiction writers

In the poetry world, you are taught Less is More. THAT IS NOT TRUE IN THE FANFICTION WORLD!! I've seen some stories that have had the potential to be absolutely wonderful, but, unfortunately, the writer has only provided a skeleton of a story.

Draw it out -- include dialogue and description.
Show, not tell -- don't say that it was raining outside, show it!
"It was raining outside" or "My clothes were drenched, trying to run from my house to Edward's. Dang typical Forks weather"
Which one sounds better?

Also, another thing that annoys me is people who have to change POV a million times in a chapter, especially back and forth. I am a firm believer that POV should only change at the chapter divide, if at all. If you can't get a full chapter without changing POV, then you need to follow the advice above.

Writing isn't easy. If you don't put time into it, you won't get anything out of it. Don't expect to write the best story ever in a few minutes. It won't be well-read, and it will probably be flamed by others.
