Getting Started with Our First Exercise
talking about what makes us read a story, whether it's fanfiction or just fiction. So the first assignment would be to name five things that make you want to read a story. It can be anything from characters, plot, fandom, parings to writing style. You don't have to be concise, feel free to write a paragraph for each.
Also, what are your top five pet peeves when reading a story? What makes shut the book and throw it to the nearest trash can, or close the tab with a story in it?
Please don't mention authors by name or stories. This is not a bashing session. It's an exercise where we can learn what are the things that make or break a story. The idea is to learn what people like or what they don't like and keep that in mind when writing. Being creative is all fine and everything, but we also need to know our audience. We have two weeks, so this will be closed on the 11th of February.
