So, there's a lot of new faces around that are taking part in expressing themselves through writing, either with stories or with roleplay. This is refreshing to see, however I want to take some time to voice a few things that I'm sure a lot of the older members of the community are noticing. This will be especially important to those seeking to roleplay with others, or those who want valuable feedback or fans.
The number one thing that you need to focus on as a writer is going to be ensuring that your writing is clean. I don't mean suitable for all ages. I don't mean without snot. I mean to use the skills that you were taught in English class in school. Take the effort to clean up what you write to the point that it is entirely without typos, contains complete sentences, and when applicable, include proper paragraph formatting.
There has been a lot of writing recently, and this applies to roleplay as well, where it was quite a jumble of thoughts. This can be okay if you're just writing a standard forum reply to someone (though I only personally slack on typing when talking via live messengers and not forum/email) but when you're writing a story, you need to make every possible effort to ensure that you are following the rules of writing. Take the time to proofread, and if you're simply not sure how to format something, look at other stories as examples or look around online to research such things.
In the case of roleplay, there's two types of roleplay. [Speech. *Action*] and ["Speech." Action.] If you're doing a roleplay that involves plot and original characters, it's generally recommended to use ["Speech." Action.] and to ensure that your English skills are being fully utilized. If you're doing a roleplay that involves personal characters (like fursonas) and light playfulness, it's certainly alright to use [Speech. *Action*], but please make sure that you are putting a decent amount of effort into capitalization and sentence structure. Without that effort, it will be very hard for you to find a steady roleplay partner!
Many of our more intellectual members are used to proper writing, and many will also favor the first style of writing with actual plots and stories. This also makes it easier to share such content with the forum.
The next thing I want to bring up, and something a lot of novice writers will struggle with, is the amount of description I see in many stories here. Description is the lifeblood of your story. Speech is useful, but without adequate description, your story will not grab people's attention. You should have several sentences of description for each line of dialogue on average. There's so many things you can attempt to describe when going into a sneeze sequence, ranging from subtle movements to emotions and inner thoughts. It's up to you to maximize each of these possibilities to really make your story shine.
When you might normally only use a single line to get a point across, turn it into three sentences instead. When a character takes an action, give them as much back as you can. If you need to, give extra guidance outside of the main roleplay with an entry surrounded in parentheses. (It can be very helpful!) When you're writing a story, be careful to avoid long stretches of dialogue with very little description added in. When you get to the sneeze segments, you should give as much description as you can because that's the important part to us fetishists! Make it fun, make it detailed! And again, use proper punctuation and spelling!
Speaking of the sneeze segments, the last bit of advice I want to offer is that character repetition is not a substitute for impact. You don't need your a's, h's and o's repeated 50 times in order to convey strength, nor do you need every letter to be capitalized. Variety is important! That's not saying you need to use Q's and X's and Z's or something, or that suddenly it's all spelled "Achoo" only, but when you reach those parts of the story where there is impact and volume, try to convey it through description, and try to really build variety into your characters.
In the end, these are only my personal suggestions. I do want to see everyone continue to enjoy roleplaying and writing stories, but I've noticed a general burnout by some of the older members when it comes to roleplaying with the new people, and I want to make such new people aware of things that could be considered reasons for why they might find it hard to find a roleplay partner.
Observe what others do and learn from it.
