I'm not going to sugarcoat this. There will be no fancy editing in order to let it appeal to the visual senses. No no.. this will be plain text in order to drill in the fact that GRAMMAR AND VOCABULARY ARE IMPORTANT!

I cannot stress these facts enough.

1) Never forget punctuation

Punctuation counts, and that means proper comma's, apostrophe's, periods, question marks (etc) are placed correctly in the sentence to allow for a fluid sound that rolls off the tongue, rather then back it up.

2) Spacings and Paragraphs

Remember that 4-5 sentences make a paragraph, and to always space for them. Remember to make a new paragraph for every new idea introduced to the paragraph or every new speaker.

3) Emphasis

It is always fun to emphasize a point by using ALL CAPS or Italics. By doing this, you draw the readers'(s) eye to your sentence and point, and (hopefully) make them realize that what is going on here is IMPORTANT.

4) Alliteration

By using the same capital letter throughout the sentence, it rolls off of the tongue easier and makes context slightly easier to focus on. It is easier and reduces time to read something done in Alliteration, and you can receive a reply much faster : D

5) Detail

Every single thing happening to your character needs to be stressed. Every minute detail needs to be confirmed in order for your rping partner to have a clear idea on what is going on and make it easier for them to post a reply. Everything your Character sees, hears, smells, tastes, feels, thinks, does, etc should all be written up.
Vocabulary

The choice of vocabulary you use while writing are very important. If you start every sentence with the same word, it can get quite repetitive and annoying. Try finding a Thesaurus if you need words that are different but have the same definition. Remember, keeping a varying vocabulary gives the impression of intelligence, and your Reputation as well as an rper will increase.


Dyslexia
Dyslexia is a problem many people have to deal with these days. That's why, every now and then, when someone posts it may not be in perfect grammar/spelling. It's not appropriate to keep pointing out these little mistakes.

On the other hand, if you know you are dyslexic, try to keep the story short, and press [Enter] every now and then. Even though many people have tried, time has proven that reading through a sea of letters without commas, enters and so forth is rather daunting, and discourages readers from paying attention to the post in question. Your post may be neglected, and that's a shame.

Let's also keep in mind that not everyone is as "gifted" as *you* are. In short: Be nice, be respectful, and try not to be rude.
