    Hidden Street Useful Fanfic Materials (READ FIRST!)

    This was taken from sleepywood.net forums.

    Post them here. I'll update this; once we get enough, I'll sticky this.

    Primary Writer's Material

    Over 300 Ways to Say Said: The difference between a boring paper and an interesting one can sometimes be a matter of word choice. When revising, check your paper for general, boring verbs like "is" and "said." See if you can come up with a more accurate, and interesting, way to say (demonstrate/explain/show/enunciate) what you want to say (illustrate/discuss/prove/articulate).

    Color Symbolism: Color symbolism is often the key to creating vivid imagery. Here is a list of some of the most commonly used colors in literature and emotions associated with them.
    Edit: Sticky please. :D

    Edit2: To all new writers, paragraphing, spellchecking and punctuation are important. I'm getting sick of saying this all the time. Try to elaborate more and watch your grammar.

    Edit3: Since the "300 Ways to Say Said" link is broken, try using this online thesaurus.
    Monster Hunter Tri Status:
    - Hunter Rank: HR1 (Yay, me noob)

    - Current Most Hated Monster: Rathalos

    I also vote for this to be stickied.

    I like my "said". People who try for "variety" overdo it.

    Not everyone gets the colours thing. You might overdo it and make it too subtle to notice. Allusions are better in my opinion.
    For colours, it's better to just stick with known phrases like "green eyed monster".

    Mmm... The standard of writing here is generally, horrific. Besides Slerotin's story, that aren't any good stories. This fanfiction may not be about Maple, but it's good, and considered merely average where it comes from.
