Despite having dabbled with The Lost God, I still live a couple literary laws, the first of which is to always devote yourself to one project. This is to you Viks, who has more stories than you do chapters. Find yourself one story and stick with it no matter what. Secondly, never ever skimp on description. Never. As in, never ever. Third, never rush the story. This was my mistake with Canticle, I wrote too many events and didn't write about them nearly long enough. Fourth is the old writer's saying, show don't tell. That should be self explanatory, but as a cardinal rule of writing, you're likely to find a more elaborate description with a simple google search. Fifth is to Megan: this is FictionPress, not FanFiction, be as original as humanly possible. Many people simply take another story and change around the names, which is excruciatingly annoying. Fan Fiction is my arch-nemisis, and I would go not even count the best Fan Fiction writers in the same league as the worst original writers. Sixth is character development, no one loves a flat character...no one. Make your characters interesting and human, even if they're not human. An author should know his characters as well as he knows his friends, better even. They are real and intigral people, if they're not, they won't suceed as characters. They have their own quirks and traits, their own likes and dislikes, their own amibitions and their own lifetime of memories, remember that when you write about them.
I write by this code, and I am still learning just as you are. Please, authors are their own niche, do not hesitate to talk to me, I love you all.
