Exclamation A brief guide to wiriting stories on NFF

Here are a few or so things one should keep in mind when writing stories on Nintendo Fan Forum.

1. Criticism: Several high-ranking members of Nintendo Fan Forum are considerably particular about how stories should be written. Do not overreact if you receive some harsh criticism, they're only trying to help you to improve and perfect your story, even if they're being blunt.

2. Writing technique: When writing a story, be sure to have everything spelled correctly, the punctuation marks put in the right places of your sentences, every first letter of the first word of a sentence be capitalized, your grammar up to snuff, and vice versa.

3. Plot: Your story should have a plot that everyone, especially the higher-ups, should be able to understand. When coming up with a plot for your story, don't make one with on-the-spot plot twists, Mary-Sues, and other childish-seeming junk.

4. Story characters: Be sure, that when introducing the story, to give proper descriptions of your characters. No Mary-Sues!

5. Summary: You've got to give your story a good summary, just acceptable enough for the higher-ups.

I, the writer of this brief guide, remembered when I would overreact to harsh criticism whenever I tried to write a story, because they're being blunt about it.

Portraying the more popular as more important and assuming you have to please us in order to be a good writer? Your writing doesn't suck because we don't like what it is about. It sucks because you refuse to listen to anything anyone says in order to help you.

On a side note your grammar is pretty good in this post. Why don't you try applying the same level of attention to your writing?

Yeah, because grammar actually makes a difference.

O' Alex, as inauspicious you sound, write me as story pertaining to how cantankerous you were as a novelist and how the priests drove you from their temple because of your herecy, which in turn started your life as a boxing champion.

TL;DR, write good stories.

We high ranking members like a good story to read with our tea and... Hamburgers...

If you're trying to get us to feel sympathy for you, it's not working.

And let me tell you something else: normally it's a terrible idea to make a guide about something that you're not really good at doing yourself.
