This is actually good for writing in general. Not just fanfics.
Yeah, that was the general idea : ) I’m of the opinion that fanfic, despite all it’s, um, special nuances, is writing like any other and has the same structures and rules. While a few things vary between fanfic and everything else (being idea generation and social opinion, among other things), I handle writing fanfiction in the same manner that I handle writing original pieces.
I might go in to any of the points in this guide (and some things that weren’t) in greater detail in the future, actually. (I’d love to write up a thing about fanfic idea generation someday.)
