The Mary Sue Litmus Test further up the page is very witty.

Re: Recommend your favorite writing reference sites

I'd like to recommend this site. It has some great stories there and the writers are pretty awesome in my book.

Those can be fun. Of course, whether or not your character is well written and sympathetic to the reader is not necessarily a factor of how a character scores on that test. Even the "dreaded" Author Insert can be done with style...especially if the character who is inserted into the story has to face real challenges, take the consequences of his or her actions, and even fail sometimes.

Re: Recommend your favorite writing reference sites

One of the two latest writing resources I've spotted recently have been...

How To Break A New Story From Scratch, a great series of videos by Dan Wells summarised by Neil Mossey (who has some great writing resources of his own) http://neilmossey.blogspot.com.au/20...m-scratch.html

Not a writing reference per se, but useful all the same -

Are fan fiction and fan art legal?

Re: Recommend your favorite writing reference sites

This is a bit of tooting my own horn since I am one of the administrators, but the Star Trek Expanded Universe wiki has been going for the better part of the past ten years.

http://stexpanded.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

It's available for all of your fanfic needs without any of the canon restraints of Memory Alpha or Memory Beta. If you want to archive your story, go right ahead.

Seriously, go right ahead. Unfortunately, with Abrams' film being the only major Trek production in the past five years, our membership has seen better days and we could always use more members.
