    Due to lack of opinions either way, I'mma just do whatever I want :D

    The next story I post will probably be pre-completed so as to avoid the same issue as the last one.

    Need some story advice

    So, on the off chance a few people will see this, I have a need for advice before I continue on anything I have in the works at the moment. I’m thinking of starting to take tentative steps into the world of writing on this site, but I'm not entirely sure what kind of story is best to start with.

Need some story advice · 9:13am Apr 13th, 2017

So, on the off chance a few people will see this, I have a need for advice before I continue on anything I have in the works at the moment. I’m thinking of starting to take tentative steps into the world of writing on this site, but I'm not entirely sure what kind of story is best to start with. Things like romance or heavily emotional stuff probably isn't the best thing to start with as my first story ever. Any ideas or recommendations anyone?

Well, hello there! :pinkiehappy: It's just a random Ever lurking around, no need to be scared. (Actually, I found you due to your fresh comment on The First Law of Magic, a story I have the pleasure to edit.)

I see you have already posted your first story, but I still think this is an interesting question. I'd say the answer is quite simple: Write what you like. For if you, the author, aren't enjoying your own work, nobody will.
In my time around the site, I've already seen stories of all genres in the Featured box. However, most commonly it's some shipping, comedies or some SoLs with an interesting topic. Mysterious and gore-y stuff is not all that often in there as many people here don't really like it. Also, Human stuff tends to get there.

Some sound advice, however I was more getting at what genres are easier to write in, along with POV type stuff.

I'm not really expecting to get featured to be honest.
Thanks any ways though :twilightsmile:

Ah... I see. My bad :twilightsheepish: Again, it's about what you feel like writing. I find the third person POV better because you can more easily jump between the characters. First person POV usually needs a lot of description to work properly, but it is better in giving you access to the thoughts and stances of the character, getting the message across faster.
My favorite genres are comedy and some slightly darker stuff, I'd never write shipping stories and such. Yet, there are people who write them almost daily. Simply it all depends on the author, their preferences and ideas.

I'm not really expecting to get featured to be honest.

Well, you never know, but it's great you don't have too high expectancy.
