Default My fanfic tips

I'm not good at writing , so I'll use my other skills to cover my bugs.
1. Make the fanfic's background complicated.
2. Draw more fanarts about the fanfic.
3. Have a official site.
4. Even your skill at sports may help your fanfic.
Here's mine.

Not necessarily the sign of a good fanfiction. You can have an extremely simple background, but still have one hell of an awesome fanfiction.

How does that make a fanfiction better? It'll definitely make the whole thing "look" nicer, but fanfiction writing isn't really about "looking", but more about "being".

Again, not compulsory. You can post it on any fanfiction hosting site.

Not meaning to be offensive, but how?

While I agree that an official website can be nice (a review board and more background info, etc.), it definitely isn't necessary. In fact it probably doesn't help in all cases, though for example if Neo decided to make a Trial of Juno site... Or Saber a Revelations: Cross of Fates site, they would be instantly popular.

That was just mindless advertising. Not cool, man.

Also, Deathspector is right on just about everything. That was a really stereotypical post to make. I'd just say make sure it has believable characters, no Mary-Sues and a believable, fast moving plot. That's just personal preference.
