Writers' Guide, Characters, Common Complaints

Rated: Youth | Warnings: None
Main Characters: None
Genres: Other | Story Types: Other
Length: 1 chapter(s) / 3797 words | Complete: Yes

Summary: Has anyone complained about your character's name for one reason or another? Was it because it was too plain, or perhaps too "strange"? Or maybe it just didn't fit somewhere? Maybe it was because it was a too popular name or a name that had been used too often? Is it that one aspect of your character that makes people call your character a Mary-Sue?

While names are somewhat important, it's certainly something that shouldn't be considered the number one way to declare whether your character's a Sue or not, and here's why.

Length: 1 chapter(s) / 4847 words | Complete: Yes

Summary: This is the first of many of my guides that explains the different facets of Mary-Sues. Here, you'll learn what Mary-Sues are, what they are not, how to create a balanced character, and what to do if you see a suspected Suethor.

This is based on my observations and opinions on various writing sites, and I believe that Mary-Sues are more than just the characters themselves. I have many more guides, which are compiled as a series here called "Mary-Sue: Who is She?" So if you have more questions, maybe one of my other guides can answer them.

Summary: I hope I don't offend anyone when I say that, in general and on average, Lunaescence writers are probably a bajillion times more sophisticated and mature than Quizilla writers. I post all of my work on Quizilla because I have loyal, intelligent readers there, but I'm about fed up with the crap that is published on that Top Rated list. I'm posting this here, Luna users, so that you all can laugh at how I'm actually hopeful that this might change something.
