Summary: After reading this, you too will know when a story is totally awesome or not. Guaranteed or your wasted time back!

This is my humorous way to both try and give writing tips and vent--it's the start of something terrible.

1. Sigh. There is a lot of sighing. Sighing helps establish the fact that the character is a loner, depressed, and has a tragic past. However, sighing is not limited to those three facets of originality. Sighing also proves that the character is bored, unsatisfied, irritated, tired, content, musing, whimsical, or otherwise pensive. Sigh—it’s not just a four-letter word!

Summary: Why, look at this! It's pretty ironic. Blurbs are summaries, they are what you find on the back-cover of a book. They allow you to introduce and convince people into reading your story. It's important to have a summary if you want to attract people to read your works. Which is why I wrote this guide because it is to help you write a summary for your story. I've listed a few ways to do it, along with some examples to go with them and some helpful hints to keep in mind. As well as what NOT to put on your summaries and/or what your didn't put or do.

This includes tips, examples, litmus tests and useful links. So even if your character has some Mary Sue traits/tendencies, the Mary-Sueness can still be averted by a good enough explanation for why they have it and why they do what they do.

In otherwords, a Mary-Sue?
