Hello, everyone, and welcome to the pseudo-official Fanfic Author's Manual! Obviously, this isn't anything serious, and it should in no way affect your reading and writing habits. The point is to poke fun at idiosyncracies among us authors without being mean, of course. Self-deprication is allowed, and even encouraged. However, be nice to each other, please! I'll start... ------- Rule #1: Never post more than once a day. It is recommended that you not post every day, as your readers will become fidgety, demanding, and even mutinous, threatening to take over the story themselves if you haven't posted in twelve hours. However, if you feel compelled to post every day or more than once a day, you should be warned about taking breaks to deal with Darth Real Life, Darth Friends and Family, and the ever-dreaded Darth Writer's Block. (For the consequences associated with the aforementioned, consult any thread in the fan fiction forum authored by "Melyanna".) ------- Okay, someone else's turn!
