      A good tip would be to never use chatspeak and an even better one would be for you to read all of the tutorial guides in the lounge that explain in detail how to write a work of fan fiction properly.

      Then, write your fan fiction out on Microsoft Word so you can fix the spelling and capitalisation errors.

        though, spellcheck is anything but reliable. For some part, proper spelling takes actual experience, and considering dodobird's at age 13 (and from the looks of it, I doubt he's paid very much attention in the English classes he's had so far), it's experience that he most likely doesn't have. I'd recommend a beta for this guy.

          Fixed. :D


          Seriously though, just type as you would if you were doing a paper for class. Proper English/grammar is not hard.

          It is when when your knowledge of literature only goes as far as middle school/freshmen year. Dodobird, what I suggest is reading some of our stickied thread, some better known fics, maybe a novel or two (yes, reading greatly improves your writing) and maybe wait a little while. I'm not much older than you but after seeing how others handle writing, I began to pick up on things. Good luck with writing!
