and I requote


tips for wrighting my own story


forgive the smart-aleck answer, but make sure that spell-check is on. :D :D :D

Then decide what story you want to tell. I get a basic outline of what is going to happen. And I write like I would want to see it on the screen...........have a look at "The Death of Tong'Ve" in this forum.........

Garak: "What is it?"
Quark: "A Human drink, it's called Root Beer."
Garak: "Ahh, I don't know....."
Quark: "Come on....Aren't you in the least bit curious?"
Quark: "..........What d'you think?"
Garak: "It's vile?"
Quark: "I know. It's so bubbly and cloy, and happy."
Garak: "Just like the Federation....."
Quark: "But do you know what's really frightening? If you drink enough of it you begin to like it...."
Garak: "....It's insidious...."
Quark: "....Just like the Federation."

Well, I find it helps to think about what you want your ending to be, then figure out how you want to get there... It's easiest to work from the ending to the begining :).

And yes, a spell checker might come in handy ;)

Well I am more of a technical writter than a creative one, but if you have a basic idea, you can draft the basic story in simple terms or acts, then rewrite it with more detail.

You could then rewrite the rewrite with even more detail and keep going on this premise until you have finished the story.

It may take a little bit longer but the learning experience would be priceless. Also, it makes writing a little easier because when I was alot younger, my biggest problem was that I would try and write the end product in my first draft/attempt. Not good!!!!

Hope that helps.

Makes a lot of sense to me.

Look at it this way - it's your fan fic, you do it however you want, but if you want good reviews, make it exciting, and make it understandable (most importantly!). Like Why? said, write a few drafts before you decide on a final product to present to us. Have someone - a friend, family, etc. - give you a hand with it, if you need it.
