The Do’s and Don’ts of writing Fanfiction/A Semi Fanfiction Writing Guide
Having been reading fanfiction online for over five years now, I figured it was time to put together a list of things that I personally feel should either be in stories, things that shouldn’t be and just overall tips that can help writers. Now, please understand that I certainly understand that there are various factors as to why fanfiction can be different and that people like different things. But, I figured I could make a list of pet peeves, so to speak, that aren’t so subjective.
Basically, this will be a post to help fanfiction writers improve on their writing from a reader’s perspective. Now, I have written fanfiction myself, and it can be a daunting task so I completely understand that there is always room to better oneself, hence why I’m doing this.
So, in an effort to help my fellow fanfiction writers and creators, here is my list of suggestions that may or may not help in the long run. And keep in mind, these are just MY ideas that I think would help and someone could learn from. Please don’t be offended or feel like you have to follow what I say down to a T. These are suggestions only, so either take the advice or leave it.
- Just a side note, I may be updating this whenever I find something else I’ve forgotten to add. I would tell you to check back every once in awhile, but honestly, I don’t even know how many people are going to read this the first time ‘round.
