I need some help on River's Light. Please, please, please read and respond. I want to make this at least solvable from a reader's POV, and not my own (I have the solutions, after all). :-/

You might not what to post your chapters really fast, we as a forum are pretty slow moving :). I think writing chapters and saving them up to be a few chapters
ahead is a very good idea that way you can give more time for reveiws to post between cahpters :)

Yeah, a non-advertising post! Anyways, OF is right. A week is probably the fastest pace a good writer can take, and then they usually still have a lot of mistakes. (Like my Now and Forever, where I always had grammar errors even if I looked through it five times. That was because I rushed so much.

Really, it's becoming more of a trend to wait until you have a large portion (i.e. if you divide it into parts of, say ten to twenty chapters) or the whole fan novel done by the time you start posting, and then you just have to edit / revise it a bit, or even just make sure you polish it with advice from the previous chapters once you have the whole thing virtually well-written. That's what I plan on doing from now on.

I just started my fan fic. it's called the Legendary Trio. it's actually one of the first real attempts ive ever made on fan fics. maybe you should read it. its not that good though. the chapters are kindof short, and the plot is going kindof fast. any ideas how i can make it better?

Make it longer and don't write things so fast ;)

Does anybody have any tips on how to beat the flow of other fanfics? Mine is getting drowned, and now people are stealing my text decorations. Seriously, there's stuff besides colons you can stick on the title. =|

Somebody could at least tell me what's wrong with my fic, because I haven't heard anything that's... detail-criticism. Just a few clumsy words here and there, but nothing on plot or detail. Is it that bad...?

Well, there are three categories, I think, for reviewing / writing quality:

Crappy. These get a lot of reviews because a) some people like to make others feel inadequate and be mean / bully and b) most people like to help new writers.

Okay. This is probably the category most people are stuck in - it's good, there's some tweaking needed. Usually, there's nothing really to comment on to the untrained eye, so really you only get friends / bored people to read. Most people are stuck here, because, well, most people just write for fun, and so don't make masterpieces.

Great. This is the category that also gets a lot of reviews - it's nearly flawless, and so people like to read it and comment on it. And why would you want to read an okay piece when you can read a great piece?

Yeah, right now I am doing that for the rewrite of "Nothing,Everything" and so far got nine chapters done and into the tenth. In fact, chapter ten is when part one of the story ends. XD

Speaking of "Nothing, Everything", either tonight or tomorrow I will post a preview of it...but first want part one done ;D. So yeah everyone, watch out for that!
