hey, bottle glass here. i was on hiatus for awhile... but i'm back! returning to fanfiction was a pretty hard decision, so i hope that i don't disappoint!
exciting news:is it possible to have both tumblr and fanfiction? i don't see why not! canoodle on over to http://bottle-glass.tumblr.com/.i have an LJ! check it out at bottle_glass!
P.S.: Even though everyone probably says this, reviewing really does make an ff.net writer more motivated. So guess what readers should do: click that little blue word and drop in to say Hey.
Tips for using FanFiction.Net:
1. Don't use the "Misc. Books" category as a venue for original stories and poems. That's what FFN's sister site, FictionPress.Com, is for! (When I look at the stories under Miscellaneous Books, I think a lot of them should have been published on FictionPress: if they have original characters, they aren't really fan fiction.)
2. If you have hundreds or thousands of stories on your Favorite Stories list, it tells people that you Favorite every single story you like.
3. Be kind and respectful in your reviews. If you see writing that is poor quality, offer advice for how to improve. Explain your reasoning when you express your opinion.
4. If you read a story you like, check out the author's profile page. See what other stories they've written, and take a look at their Favorite Stories. This is a great way to find other stories that authors like in common.
5. If someone has a poll on their profile page, cast your vote (if you can have a real opinion on the topic).
6. If you put someone's story on your Favorites list, then more people will see it and read/review it; then the author will be encouraged to update sooner.
7. Don't make your profile too long. Include things that you find interesting or which you think will interest someone visiting your profile. But don't fill it up with quizzes and surveys and make it so long no one will take the time to read it.
8. Observe the rules of Internet safety. No personal information, meeting someone you found online, disrespectful comments, or et cetera.
9. Be respectful of different opinions (I say this with pairings and "shipping wars" in mind). If necessary, agree to disagree. Don't send flames.
10. If you post something before you go to bed, you may have reviews waiting for you when you wake up.
11. If you want to review a story by a certain author, look for their stories that have little or no reviews.
12. Point out spelling/grammar mistakes when you submit reviews.
13. In songfics, be sure to include the name of the song and the artist(s) who wrote it.
14. Be sure to label stories "Complete" if you don't plan to add on to them.
15. Favorites and Alerts are nice, but the best thing you can do for an author is give them a review.
