You will never understand how much an author likes comments until you become one yourself, so yes, comments are very appreciated, even if they're negative

SilentAnonymity’s Crash Course on Fiction Writing
A few simple guidelines and instructions on how to write a good fic. The first section is an outline of how to write a basic fiction, the second includes more detailed descriptions of literary terms used in fiction critiquing and the three most common and despised mistakes made by novice authors.
Basic instructions on writing a work of fiction:
1. Who do you want to have in your story?
Guidelines on writing a fiction with a lasting impression:
1. Who do you want to have in your story?
But you could mix it up and start the story at the falling action, then add the introduction, rising action, and climax at the end, to add mystery and add drama to the plot.
Do you have a scene or mystery or maybe a super epic fight scene that is revealed or occurs in your story? Try working around that idea. Make things lead up to that point, you don't even have to start planning the intro until you have most of the details of this scene planned out.
7.Look in a dictionary! Use a thesaurus!
Cliché, the full definition:
According to Wikipedia, cliché means: A cliché or cliche(pronounced UK: /ˈkliːʃeɪ/, US: /klɪˈʃeɪ/) is an expression, idea, or element of an artistic work which has been overused to the point of losing its original meaning or effect, especially when at some earlier time it was considered meaningful or novel. In phraseology, the term has taken on a more technical meaning, referring to any expression imposed by conventionalized linguistic usage. The term is frequently used in modern culture for an action or idea which is expected or predictable, based on a prior event. Typically a pejorative, "clichés" are not always false or inaccurate; a cliché may or may not be true. Some are stereotypes, but some are simply truisms and facts. Clichés are often employed for comic effect, typically in fiction.
Cliché, my summarized definition:
Cliché generally means a scene of phrase that is overused. A fiction or scene is cliché when you can guess what happens (unless it’s due to the character’s original personality). Clichés are the second most despised mistakes of novice writers. (i.e. The popularity groups in movies, like cheerleaders, football players, nerds, outcasts, etc.)
Cliché sub-heading: romance scenes
One of the easiest places to make a cliché Mary Sue (see 14) moment is during a romantic scene. It can range from being mildly cliché to complete cringe and look away. The reader will automatically press back and move onto another story, unless they are very sugar-high 13 year olds (I said sugar-high, kids, not all of you) or experienced writers looking to critique you.
Some general romance scene mistakes made:
The top mistake made is the wrong usage of the phrase I love you. It is almost always used in a cheesy romantic setting, or said after a fight between lovers. Either way, it’s been done before and used incorrectly. Don’t think that if you use it in a smutty scene you’re fine, that’s been done too. I love you is the third most scorned mistake. Don’t get me wrong, using I love you is great, just be creative, don’t use it where you expect it to be used.
Kisses on the first date. If you look at any real relationship, a first date never has a kiss unless it’s followed by M rated content. This mistake is made mainly by hyper 13 year old girls (I keep using 13 year olds because that’s the minimum age for an account).
14. Read it over and determine if there is any OOCness. Beware of Mary Sues!
Mary Sue, the full definition:
According to Wikipedia a Mary Sue is: A Mary Sue (sometimes just Sue), in literary criticism and particularly in fanfiction, is a fictional character with overly idealized and hackneyed mannerisms, lacking noteworthy flaws, and primarily functioning as a wish-fulfilment fantasy for the author or reader. It is generally accepted as a character whose positive aspects overwhelm their other traits until they become one-dimensional. While the label "Mary Sue" itself originates from a parody of this type of character, most characters labelled "Mary Sues" by readers are not intended by authors as such. Male Mary Sues are often dubbed "Gary Stu", "Larry Stu", "Marty Stu", or similar names.
Mary Sue, my summarized definition:
When one is referring to a Mary Sue, they are simply saying the character is overly perfect, no real personality, their past if often tragic and they have remained perfect throughout hardships. All the Disney princesses are Mary Sues. Mary Sues generally indicates a novice writer and are generally scored upon by other authors. You’ll grow out of it though. The top mistake made by novice authors. Usually drive readers away unless they're looking to critique you.
15. Read it over, is it canon or fanon? AU? Does your fiction fall into its respective category?
Anti-climax the full definition:
According to Wikipedia an anticlimax is: An anti-climax is where something which would appear to be difficult to solve in a plot is solved through something trivial. For example, destroying a heavily guarded facility would require advanced technology, teamwork and weaponry for a climax, but in an anti-climax, it may just consist of pushing a red button which says "Emergency Self-Destruct", or even more so, simply filling out an eviction notice and destroying the building. A good example being the ending of The War of the Worlds, where, amidst the chaos of the extra-terrestrial takeover of planet Earth, the aliens are defeated by the most unexpected organism: the common cold. Another example could involve the protagonist faced with insurmountable odds and ultimately being killed, without accomplishing their goal, despite what appears to be a turning point for the character.
Anti-climax, my summarized description:
Basically the opposite of something cliché. It comes completely unexpected. Anti-climaxes twist the plot of the story. (i.e. A boy goes to open a coffin and the scene is suspenseful, we think that the boy is here before his opponents. The lid is opened to reveal the silk lining, but no body. The others had gotten here before he had...)
17. Change some of the descriptions you have written, use metaphors, analogies, and similes to create imagery. Most of the time, it’s better to show what characters are feeling or what happened using actions instead of speech. Be sure to include not only character descriptions, but also environmental descriptions. (e.g. The wall was blue --> The wall was blue, clear like the sky, but deep like the ocean...) For angsty short stories in particular, don't let your reader have a chance to think in the middle, keep it moving; drown them in your words and then hit them with reality and realization with your last sentence...(see 19)
PLEASE ENJOY AND COMMENT
Also if you find any errors in my writing please notify me...but there are variations between American and Canadian English, so some "errors," might not be "fixed," such as the oxford comma.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE READ ANY OF MY FICS, COMMENTED, FAVOURITED, PLACED ON AUTHOR, AND/OR STORY ALERT.
