Yeah I know i reposted this

These are ways to make a good story.

+Number 1+: Don't rush the story.

Ok, you all agree that the rushed stories are very boring to read and we feel bad for the one who wrote the story. Instead of making each chapter of your story a phrase long, make it 3 or 4 phrases long! Explain what things look like. Take time to describe someone. If you are too impatient or are too lazy to do that than too bad. (Don't say "and then" too much. Slow down and make more sentences not just one HUGE sentence.

Bad example: My friend called me so I rushed outside and when I got to her house she invited me to her room and then we went to Clark's house and watched a movie.

Good Example: I arrived at the front door of Pam's house. I looked at the dark red wood for a while wondering if I wouldn't be intruding. I felt a breese of cold wind touch my uncovered skin. It was cold out today. I decided to knock.

+Number 2+: Make it unique.

There are alot of stories on TDP that sound quit the same to me. Like about being popular or not in higschool. Or about just normal life. Sure I like to read that stuff cause it's kind of like my life. But I also love to read stories that I don't expect what's coming next. Like my story "Kidnapped for no good reason" has mystery, suspense, romance and yeah al that stuff. Make you stories unique. kk?

+Number 3+ LEASE don't sleep in English class.

Ok the one mistake of story making is the Grammar mistakes. Ok I know I make tons of them but atleast I type them on Microsoft Word. If you don't have it then buy the disc to install or just do SOMETHING! It gets annoying when there's so many mistakes. And it makes you sound like a complete retard. Oh and DO NOT write SMS like!!! As if you were text messaging someone..pffff. I hate to read stories like that!

SMS bad example: Yay so when we went da car it was brken and all. We called our mom cuz of dat an all. So we lke said w/e an all an stuff.

See ya! Hope you liked this

Nice advice. I'm glad that under "Be Unique" you didn't complain about fan-fics, because fan-fics are amazing. Bahaha.

Anyway, five stars!

I agree with you on most of it except the "good example" part. Its better then the “bad example" but I guess you were in a rush so to say because English teachers would be teaching way better than that. You shouldn't have I for the beginning of almost every sentence and most English teachers wouldn't accept telling sentences like "it was cold out today" and “I decided to knock”. Like my English teacher always said “Show don’t Tell”. You should elaborate way more like:

As I stood in front of the dark red wood door, at Pam’s house, I wondered if I would be intruding. Standing there I felt a cold gust of wind slip past me, making my body shiver from head to toe. Finally, lifting my hand up to the door, I knocked softly hoping they would here my pathetic little knock.

but i still agree with you and i like your storys even though i have only read on part sofar of "Kidnapped for no good reason" its really good.

I hate most of that stuff. It makes the story either really boring or hard to understand, which sucks because sometimes they're really good and someone's ruining it by not caring to work a little harder.

I'm not perfect at all so I go back and read my stories. If there's a mistake or it doesn't sound right, I fix it.
