Re: Tips for Spinoff Appeal

The best advice I can give is to work on proof-reading your story so that it meets our quality standards. A majority of the appeals we review that fail to pass are due to widespread mechanical issues or plot issues (the over-reliance of tropes that make the overall premise have problems). Also, please make sure to reader the spinoff appeal header and follow the instructions. You can also use the writer's workshop for feedback before making the appeal if you want more eyes on it. I would just advise opening the thread with a line about how you're making an appeal as some users might not give feedback otherwise if they think it's not going to be posted here.

If you're looking if more advice, I would recommend the writing advice board or the writer's lounge (an interview series where authors give advice and walk through their processes) as both talk about common pitfalls and how to work on issues. The writing advice board also addresses certain topics (I have a section on longer stories, epistolary, and spinoff stories for example) that can help if you're looking for more generalized advice.

As for your story, I think you can make that premise work. There are no length limits (as someone who has a 100+ page zombie novel posted here, I can attest to that), but you should always take into account audience engagement and realize that the story needs to be complete when it's posted (i.e. no to-be-continued) as this wiki doesn't accept unfinished stories. If the sections are too long, you can also risk losing people and muddying the plot if the protagonist is reading/posting a 15 page story within the story, it might break the story flow. Hope that helps some. Have a good one! EmpyrealInvective (talk) 20:36, September 22, 2019 (UTC)
