Hello, I am a new writer who is writing his first story in fimfiction, I need some advice to be able to write a good story as possible, so I have some questions so you can help me:
1.How can I make the protagonist of my story not so powerful but at the same time not be useless?
2.Should there be seven elements of harmony instead of six?? (my story is set in an alternate dimension of Equestria)

3. What name should I give to my protagonist?? (He is a black male unicorn who has a white sword as a cutie mark, but he has one unique thing: his eyes can show his emotions, for example when he is angry, his irises turn red)


4.How can I make the protagonist have a good personality that is not generic?

That would be all my doubts that I have so that you can help me, I hope you have a good day or night, it depends on what time you are reading this publication, bye

Don't know if I'm too late but here goes: (I'm no expert, this is just on the top of my head)
First, chose a type of comedy. Is it pun-based, absurd, situation-based, character driven, etc?
Pun-based rely on puns. (duh) It can be from the narration or the characters.
Absurd and situation-based can be very similar, but in one, almost everyone is fine with the world not making sense, while in the other, only a few characters or things aren't making sense. (ASDFMovie is a good example of the first one, the second one would be your typical Pinkie comedy)
Situation-based can also occure if everything is perfectly rational but the way it plays out seems unlikely. (FiM does that)
Characted driven is were the characters are overeacting. Your typical slice of life comedy anime.

Of course, you can mix. Either way, now you gotta write. Have an outline, but try to make unexpected funny turns while you progress. Something that doesn't make you go too far from the intended outline, but something that isn't spotted that easily. Comedy often works best when you know it's coming, but you can't see it. (Although there is fun in just knowing it'll happen and just wonder how it will play out)
I could go all day, but it really depends on what you do/want to do. Just, write it. If it makes you smile or giggle, that's a good comedy.

How do I write comedy? Cause I am trying to make a retelling scene of flash and Twilight's first meeting, with flash being awkward and trying to be funny.

I'd advise getting Grammarly and looking up editors.

Also you can look up assistance groups to give you aid.

448120
Like I said, do you have Grammarly? It's helped me a lot with spelling mistakes and punctuation even sentence restructuring.

448119
I wanna know how to not get grammar issues.

448117
Sorry, got sidetracked, do you have Grammarly or auto correct that would be one solution.

If not then why don't you shoot me a private message and we can get to work.

448116
Well I keep having grammar issues. How can I fix that?

448115
Alright, what's the issue though? Punctuation? Ideas?

448114
I need to know how to be a better writer.

Sure, I can offer advice if you want it, P.M me and I'll respond when I can.

Can you help me be a better writer so I can understand what it takes? I also need an editor please. I need help.

Hey you guys. Listen I got something to tell you. Now I know your busy and all but I submitted my first story and still waiting for it to be approved. <a href="https://terimeridooriyanlive.com/">Teri Meri Dooriyan</a> I don't want to be impatient but if you can tell me when it will be published when you get a chance that would be great.

No one is ever going to see what you have written you should comment with in the group instead of commenting on the group page, I mean, it’s right there in the group rules
