Posting your story in this forum is a hassle because it doesn't take in italics or correct line breaks from your text editor. Reading huge walls of text is extremely annoying on a forum but if that doesn't bother you, or if you find a way to make your double line-breaks without spending two hours at it then good for you.
I'm going to encourage posting links
or other sources, and bumping your topic whenever you have a new chapter up. This is going to spare us a lot of screen mess and it's easier on these poor old eyes.
Give your fellow readers and writers at least a day or two to read your stuff and post a review or reply in your topic, especially if it's a long story.
If your story is unfinished or very long, that's fine too! Many forums and communities favor one-shots and cheap fics with 2 chapters and lots of chatting but I want this place to give a chance to the writers who struggle to produce something good and who enjoy quality writing.
Here's a "form" to help you summarize your story when you first post it:
Timeline: (use the Battle of Yavin as reference)
Characters: (a short description of your OCs if need be)
Plot/Summary: (make it short and sweet!)
Links: (if you have it on FF.net then people could send a review on there as well)
Ratings are free, but if you feel like you need to warn the reader about harsh language
or mature content
. Please be a responsible adult and write that somewhere.Do not post slash/yaoi crap
, you should be ashamed of yourself for considering it, or if you're a reader of that shit.
