Useful Links

Here are some sites to help you on your way. I've found them all incredibly useful and entertaining to read.

Fan Fiction Electronic Pathfinder. The Writers U. site I've mentioned in the other pages.
Frequently asked questions about fan fiction.
Dr. Merlin's Guide to Fan Fiction. An amusing and practical look at fan fiction.
The (Original) Mary Sue Litmus Test. Is your character a Mary Sue? Find out here.
Self-Insertion and Mary Sue-ism. A fascinating look at Mary Sue's place in fan fiction.
How to Write Marginally Readable Fan Fiction. Similiar to Dr. Merlin's site but delivered in a snarkier tone and including many sections about grammar. Highly recommended.
