A new writer looking for advice
Well, if you couldn't guess already, I'm new to the community.
Now, before I get started, I'd like to make a few statements about myself:
1. I am not sure what level I write at, but I hope it's at least high school level. If that's too high, tell me to lower it. If other wise, I'll try to make my writing more sophisticated.
2. I've never actually written a fan fiction before.
3. I've been playing pokemon, like I presume most of you have, since childhood.
Okay! Since I've gotten that out of the way, let's get down to business (and defeat the huns):
1. Are there any cliches I should avoid?
2. Are there any writers I should avoid?
3. What is considered 'Mary Sueish' here?
I thank you in advance for your help.
Welcome to the forum, MMT! Hope you enjoy your stay.
So, as for your questions/statements:
1. There's no such thing as too high a level of writing for this forum. The idea is to write as well as you can and then to get better; we're all learners here.
2. No better time to start, then!
1. Generally, people around here dislike generic journey fics, where the nondescript protagonist gets up, gets his first pokemon, and then starts his journey to get the badges, all as if it's a game transcription. This thread is a highly respected resource around here for wisdom on the subject.
2. I won't tell you to avoid any writers. We try to keep drama to a minimum.
3. See that thread above.
Also, check out this thread for writing info, and the rules of course.
