With writing as compared to RPing, you have much more control over everything. All the characters are ones that you "play", and all the plot lines are ones that you come up with. Like icomeanon said, you have to keep all these connections in mind.
I guess then that I can say that the main difference between RPing and writing a story is that you have more control over what happens. You can get a feel for what every character will do, you can direct the story, and you have some idea where they're going to end up. It's all in your hands.
Since I've only RPed twice several years ago, I'm not experienced with that many differences between RP and writing stories. So if there's a specific thing that you're worried about with your writing, feel free to ask. Again, as icomeanon said, we're here to help.
