Planning the Evil Plot
A half-guide, half-narrative on writing a story
brought to you by Super Editor
Before I start writing, I like to have some idea of where I'm starting, where I'm going, and how I'm going to end up there. Let's say that I want to write a comedy about an author who suddenly changes places with her Mary Sue. I usually jot down some basic ideas:
Sarah, the author: ~13 years old, average-looking, glasses, rather tall and gangly
Ellemere, the Mary Sue: ~16 years old, long flowing hair, violet eyes, etc.
Forrest (Ellemere's love interest) : ~18, stereotypical pretty boy who is too dark and broody to make a good love interest
Leon: ~17, Ellemere's somewhat dorky friend who falls in love with her but is cast off to side in favor of Forrest
Tangent: For those of you who are confused, the ~ symbol means "about." I think it comes from math.
I like to draw, so I'd probably make doodles of these characters too. Drawing characters is a great way to develop th
How to Create a Character: Protagonist Edition.
Have you ever caught yourself reading a book, manga or watching a TV show and wonder how the creator could come up with such a realistic character? Well, whether it'd be an anthro, anime or real-life character, characters take time to think through. In this tutorial, I will tell you just how to create that realistic and believable character! You can also use this tutorial to think through the characters you've already created in order to re-vamp their appearance and personality!
There are 3 important aspects to a character, they are: personality, design and purpose. Characters lacking one or more of those aspects may come off flat and boring. Personality is how the character acts and interacts with other characters. The personality is what gives your audience feelings for your character. Design is another important aspect. Their de
Writing Tips - Mechanics
Tips and Tricks for Writing Fluidly
No, were not fixing up your brothers car. Mechanics are the little technical bits in your writing; punctuation, spacing, spelling, capitalisation, et cetera. Well start there.
Different languages have different rules for what should be capitalised. If you speak English, youd capitalise I and leave your dog lowercase. You may find it interesting that German is a bit backwards. If youre German, youd capitalise Hund and leave ich lowercase. Why am I telling you this? Because its simple little things like this that have the potential to give your reader the wrong impression of you. If they think that English is not your first language, they may structure a critique differently than if they knew that you were born and raised in New York.
So, when do you capitalise something?
° At the beginnings of sentences.

Character Cliches to AvoidCharacter Cliches to Avoid (Like the Plague)
This tutorial-suggestion love child will be split into two parts :: 1 for cliches that should NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVUR be done by anyone, and the second part being ones that shouldn't be done by beginning writers.
Section One: The Black Plague
These are character cliches that are so overdone that they should NEVER be done anymore. EVER.
Not a lot to say on this one. There's nothing worse than reading a piece of writing though with a main character or side character that never got the character development that they deserved.
This is my name for characters that never change through the series/work. Your character should always grow with each obstacle they're faced with.
Characters with Atrociously-Spelled Names
Let's just say that if I have to get out the pronounciation guide to get through the first half of your character's name, it shouldn't be done.
Writing a Warriors Fanfiction: The Complete GuideWarriors is a massive and amazing series. Its stories have inspired some of us in the fandom to write our own adventures in this universe. If you're reading this, you're probably one of these people. But how do you go about writing a Warriors fanficiton? Hopefully this guide can help.
PLEASE NOTE: I'm not some kind of professional writer, storyteller, etc. This is just knowledge I've picked up from reading some of these fanfictions and other things. Take this guide however you may. I'm just looking to help out some people who don't know what to do.
Are You Ready?
Before we start doing anything, you might need to consider if you're up for making a fanfiction. Considering that the standard Warriors story is 20-30 chapters long, this project will be a big undertaking. Do you have the self-discipline to write regularly? Can you take on writing a lot at one time? If you realize you don't like writing but still have an idea you want to get out th
