Hints for aspiring authors
Do not post a story until you have written at least 6 chapters or half the story (whichever is less), and even then post it one chapter at a time. This buys you a safety margin should your muse decide to hide.
Use the return button to separate descriptive passages and people talking. Large blocks of text can be difficult to read.
Keep your tenses correct. Accidentally switching between past, present and future in a single paragraph destroys your credibility as a writer.
Check your spelling. It's vrey anonyngi fi yuo dnot'.
Chapters less than a thousand words long rarely work. Type at least two pages of A4 unless there's a specific reason otherwise.
Too many flashbacks can spoil a story if not used correctly. It is very hard to do so and flashback stories are very rare as a result.
Try to set things up before you need them in story. If a character uses a special sword, have him find it three or more chapters before he uses it.
Sometimes, what happens off-screen is more impressive than what happens onscreen. Just remember to include several hints as to what occurred.
Six or more paragraphs with no-one speaking is generally seen as an infodump. Limit them to a maximum of 2 per chapter and never over a quarter of the chapter.
Summaries are like mini-dresses. They should cover the important things, but be short enough to seize attention. Just don't do too many what if's.
Finally, write what you enjoy. After all, you need the entertainment.
Hints for readers regarding summaries
If it says "Please read", DON'T.
If it says "You'll like/enjoy this, YOU WON'T.
More than one "What if" means it is probably unreadable.
Three or more "what if's" means you should keep well away.
More than one typo is a bad sign.
If the summary is incoherent, the story is written worse than Finnegan's Wake.
SUMMARIES IN CAPITALS GENERALLY MEAN AVOID THE STORY
Hints for those posting reviews
Be polite. Swearing indicates that you lack intelligence while insults show you lack self-control.
Be brief. A five-thousand word essay is not a review. Keep it to less than 100 words.
Explain. Something like "This sucks, so there." shows you cannot marshal your thoughts coherently and can thus be ignored.
Get an account. You will not be taken seriously if you do not show you have taken the time to join in properly.
Back up your stance. Do not accuse others of bad writing unless you can prove that you write better in your own stories or have studied language to the point where you can officially teach it at school.
Think carefully before posting. Others only know you through what you post, don't make them think you're a self-righteous moron with delusions of adequacy.
