I was born an American, raised an Egyptian, taught Lebanese cuisine, captured by Japanese culture, and hold the fire of an Italian given to me by my father. I have been proudly reading Fanfiction for over seven years now, and writing for a little less than two (on another account that has been lost in the void). I prefer to write that which has never been done before, plots that are new and unexplored. I relish the feeling of reading a well thought out and unique story, and continue to endeavor to discover more gems of literature under the piles of over used plots and bad grammar found on this site. My dream is to become a writer, hopefully for a gaming journal, a career I hope to start by first entering college in the Philippines.
1. Use a professional writing program, such as OpenOffice, or Microsoft Word. As Notepad and Wordpad just won't do.
2. Always, Always, Always, have spell check on.
3. Make sure after each chapter you have written, you proof-read it or get someone to proof-read it for you.
4. If you wish to use a OC, Technique, etc. from another story, make sure you ask the author first.
5. When it comes to pairings, widen your horizons, don't just make every story you write with the same pairing, that's just boring.
6. Be realistic with pairings, don't make them instantly fall in love, its cheesy.
7. Get your terms right when it comes to anime like Naruto; its Jutsu not Jitsu, or Kohana/Konoho instead of the correct term, Konoha. It really is annoying when authors of Fanfiction cannot get the terms right of whatever show, book, etc. they are writing about. (Note: Boldfaced is the correct term(s).)
8. Original Ideas are almost always well received, so try to come up with never used ideas.
9. When writing always describe the original characters, locations, and the feelings of the characters, don't be vague.
10. Make sure you know where you are taking your story, and how the characters progress as the story continues.
11. Be sure to read your reviews, and take into consideration whatever constructive criticism your reviewers have left you, and ignore all flames.
12. Try to advertise your story by getting it placed in a community, as many great stories have been lost, because no one was able to find them under the pile of junk stories.
