how was this song not in the tags tho

anonymous asked:

ehhh if you could give me some advice? i want to write a fic, but idk how to attract other people to read it. what should my title be like? what should the summary be like? how to tag? what to include? obv i gotta be funny and witty in the tags, and the title has to be decapitalised (i think?) but should the title be a single word, a poetic phrase, or what? should the summary be vague and abstract, or concretely explain the fic? what attracts you to read a fic tho?

This is a lot of questions haha I’ll try my best to answer them! Disclaimer: this is all from my experience/opinion so make sure to ask other people too!

For me, a short and interesting title is what attracts my attention! Song lyrics or a line from your story are always a good option! Don’t worry about capitalization, I personally don’t really pay attention to that! Personally, I would make it a bit longer than one word, but sometimes that can make you stand out, so just do what feels right!

The summary should NOT give away the entire plot, but should hit the main points of what your story is about. Here’s the great summary of The World Opened With You by DiAnna44, one of my favourite fics: 

“Despite the smiles famous violinist Victor Nikiforov puts on for the world, he’s been in a slump for almost two years, and no longer views himself as worthy of his fame. When he’s paired up to play a duet with esteemed pianist Yuuri Katsuki, he finds inspiration once again, and maybe even something more.”

What I love about this summary is that it’s short (two sentences!!) but I still am intrigued. You can already sense the tone of the fic, who the main characters are, what type of AU it is, and leaves on a cliffhanger: and maybe even something more. What does that mean? *opens fic to find out*

It’s a good idea to leave the reader with some sort of a question or cliffhanger, something that will make your reader want to find out more!

Another thing to note about summaries, do not write “I suck at summaries, sorry” or “I don’t know how to write summaries”. HAVE FAITH IN YOUR ABILITIES/WRITING!! I know people don’t mean to, but saying that can give the wrong impression on a possible reader. If you’re not great at summaries, take a quote/section from your story! I see that all the time, it’s an easy and effective way to grab people’s attention!

TAGS!!! Please, please, please tag your fic with the appropriate tags! If it’s nsfw, don’t mark it as gen or teen, mark it as explicit or mature! That goes the same for fluffy fics w/out sex. A lot of people think the safest rating is “not rated” but, in fact, if you mark it as that it will show up as “may contain adult content” when the reader clicks on it! Mark it gen or teen!

If your fic contains ANY graphic depictions of things that could be triggering, (abuse, non-con, major character death, etc.) please put it in the tags and/or in the archive warnings! This will let the readers know what they are getting themselves into! I have read so many fics where Yuuri and/or Victor die at the end and the authors didn’t put any warning. I was super upset, and as a result, I don’t have much trust in those author’s fics anymore. I understand that it may be a spoiler, but it can be very upsetting to someone who was not ready for it. I have read some amazing fics with that tag, (P.S. I Love You by c000kiesandcream, for example) that have the major character death tag and are truly beautifully heartbreaking. It still broke my heart even though I knew there was going to be death. Don’t be afraid that putting that tag will lessen the impact, I can assure you it’ll still be heartbreaking!

Like the summary, don’t put too many tags to the point where the reader can figure out your entire fic without even reading it! Try to hit a middle ground, not too many, but not too little.

What attracts me to read a fic is definitely the summary and the tags. If I see humor, fluff, domestic, and/or angst in the tags I’ll be sure to click on it! I love to read fics with a unique AU as well, but I equally love the fics in the more “popular” AUs too. It’s the summary that usually will determine if I read it or not. Think of your summary as the trailer for a movie! That’s what I think of when I write a summary for my own works.

I wish you the best of luck with your fic(s)!!

Whew! That was a lot! I hope this helped! If anyone else has any other/different advice, please feel free to share it in the replies!

You Were Beautiful Project DAY5

Yoon Dowoon ❤️: Dowoonie’s face when he’s focused on his drumming is really beautiful. You can see how much he loves it and how much passion he puts into his drumming. The way he just gets into the song and moves his head according to the beat is really adorable to watch. Sometimes he frowns or smiles during a song and even tho his fancams are rare, when you find one you can’t help but be captivated by this handsome maknae~

❝ So open your eyes; you’re someone strong.❞

I was tagged by @sal-si-puedes to post pics of my lock screen, my home screen, my latest selfie and the last song I listened to. Please admire how deeply boring my home screen is, though also admire the weather today (91! Christ!); my lock screen is even more boring, hence the cap of my desktop at home instead. Selfie is from a recent very good hair day (if I do say so myself). Muchas gracias, Aqua.

You tagged almost everyone I’d tag, tho. :) Let’s see–what about… @wetsammywinchester, @nomercles, @anotherwinchesterfangirl, @idontdo-marigolds, @silver9mm, and of course anyone else who wants to do it. :)

How long have you been a sonic fan:  abt 7 years omg….

First Sonic game played:  Sonic Unleashed on the Wii !!!! I think I’ve played him in smash bros b4 but that doesnt count haha

Top 3 favourite characters:  SONIC, rouge and silver. but i honestly love everyone. jsut. some… less.. ??? bc i jsut? have nothing to do w them and i never got invested in knowing them??? im sorry

Favourite vocal track:  ofc it is the unused song “Who I am” by magna-fi……. i honestly love all sonic songs tho. all of them. (even when some can be annoying)

Favourite non vocal track: the entire unleashed ost, same for sa2 ost and satbk ost. why? bc thats the few games i actually played and thus have emotional connections to the songs *cries bc im poor*

Top 3 games:  Sonic Unleashed, SA2, SADX ,,,,,,, since thats the ones i played…….. i also love 06 but i never got to play it so i feel like i have no right judging if its good but i love it ugh

Top 5 stages: the entirety of sonic unleashed in all honesty. also city escape (SA2), crisis city (06 [i played the 06 mod of crisis city in generations and i LVOED it;;;;;,,, it’d be probably cooler if i actually could play as silver]), idk how the stage is called but there is this one stage in satbk that is jsut. so aesthetic. i play it when im sad.

uh… wow i cant think of specific stages rn but honestly i love sonic the hedgehog and the games and i jsut. please dont make me chose.

Favourite team: Team Dark for obvious reasons. after that comes chaotix. they deserve more love. (i still love u sonic pls dont be mad)

Favourite game intro: SONIC UNLEASHED LIKE FUCK HOW CAN U NOT LOVE THIS INTRO THIS WAS LIKE THE COOLEST THING I CRIED AND IM HAPPY THIS WAS THE FIRST THING EVER I SAW froM A SONIC gAme.
also satbk

Which game has the best story: Unleashed!!!! I REALLY liked SADX story too, same for satbk, SA2 and 06. the latter could use some adjustments but its okay cause they were rushed and under a lot of pressure. its okay.

2D, 3D or both: i prefer 3d because i get uncomfortable playing 2d sidescrollers too much. i need my 3 dimensional space and exploring options.

Sonic Mania or Sonic Forces: im so hyped for forces btu im also scared as shit

Which character(s) would you want to see in the Boom show: sonic boom is shit and i wish it would already fucking die

Best Sonic show: sonic x because ….. its what got me into sonic.

Favourite era (Classic, Adventure, Modern, Boom): adventure and modern ! i sadly wasnt there for the classics im just a little bit older than SA soooo *shrugs*

idk who hasnt been tagged yet so im just gonna say that if u love sonic then pls feel tagged!

Tag 11 people

1. How much do you care what others think about you?

I tend to care too much sometimes. I constantly try to change my attitude tho.

2. What is a song that you associate with a specific memory?

Piotr Bukartyk’s song called “Sznurek”. It was the song of my childhood! My whole family, friends and I were singing it the whole time during summer holidays when we were on the boat. Great memories :’)
However, I also feel strongly connected with “Wanderer’s Lullaby” and “Friend, please”.

3. What’s the last dream that you can remember?

I dreamed about taking my history exams and failing at the easiest question.

4. A trope or cliché that you love in books, movies, etc?

My favourite trope is “everyone has their own happy ending, they are all friends and no one dies”. So cliché, so good.

5. Is apologizing easy for you?

Yeah, it is quite easy. It depends on the situation though.

6. Do you like talking about yourself?

It’s complicated. I do not particularly like it, but when someone asks me questions I don’t mind answering them. However, I recently realised that I talk about myself more than I thought I am!

7. What’s your favorite holiday?

New Year’s Eve

8. One place you have never been but would love to go?

I’d love to go to so many places! It’s hard to pick just one. One of my choices is Canada, definitely.

9. One thing that will always make you laugh?

Wit and sarcastic comments.

10. If you could time travel for a day which time period would you visit?

The Middle Ages. I was always interested in this time period. It scares and fascinates me at the same time.

11. Would you want to be able to read minds?

Yes, I would like that. However, I would like to turn this ability on and off depending on the situation. I wouldn’t want to violate someone’s privacy.
