If you've got a story you've written, feel free and encouraged to post it here.

No subject is taboo. It doesn't even have to be about zombies, if that's not your thing.

There are some tips I'd like to give out to burgeoning writers (established writers, you can skip this.)

-Spellchecker. That's all I'm going to say.

-Format. Double-return between paragraphs when you post a story here. That'll break the paragraphs apart and make the story much easier on the eyes of your readers.

-Punctuation. If you're using Word, you shouldn't have a huge problem with this. It's terribly abrasive to some readers to read over a story that's horribly punctuated. Proper punctuation not only makes your story easier to read, it gives it a more professional look. Double-check your punctuation. Then triple-check it.

-Stephen King said "You can make a decent writer good, but you can't make a bad writer decent." I don't necessarily agree with him. We all start somewhere. This comment serves a dual purpose: if you RECEIVE criticism, take it in stride. Most people who criticize are doing so constructively. They're trying to help you improve. On the flipside, if you GIVE criticism, make sure it's constructive. Writing "this sux u suk dont write nemore idiot" doesn't help anyone. It's also a great way to earn my ire. Everyone can improve. Let's help them do so, not shit on their egos.
