Default Re: Tips that I enjoy the most.

Dashes merely indicate a short pause, not fear. If you're writing for a character that stutters, you'd use a dash even regardless of his emotion. Other than that I agree with what you've said.

On the subject of grammar:

Grammar does not have the same affect in dialogue that it has in the narrative.
Should be "effect".

I too made the mistake of not taking my time and writing sloppily. You will not get the reaction you want from the populous
Should be "populace". Populous is an adjective indicating a large population.

The only reason I use cannon characters in my fan fic is because:
The word you're thinking of is "canon". A cannon is... well, I don't think I have to explain this one XD

Art Gallery
Dali: "I know what the picture should be ... We take a duck and put some dynamite in its derriere. When the duck explodes, I jump and you take the picture."
Halsman: "Don't forget that we are in America. We will be put in prison if we start exploding ducks."
Dali: "You're right. Let's take some cats and splash them with water."
