Okay, if you want me to read your story -

DO NOT have a spelling mistake in the title - and do NOT have the title be the plot of the story.

I don't mind depressing stories, and while I'm not happy reading relationship trainwrecks, I will read them sometimes.

But not if it's in the title.

And especially not if the title is spelled wrong.


I was editing a fandom newsletter yesterday, and one of the stories had a "title" (it was a full sentence!) that should have been the story's summary. *sigh* People just don't have a clue sometimes, do they?

No, not really.

On the other hand, it's a decent shot that I'm not reading a really bad story - clueless people don't tend to write awfully well, do they?
