In contrast of my last post, I'd like to make a post on things I do want to see. i guess I feel really positive today.
This is something I see in a lot of the really good pastas and almost never see in the "less than adequate' pastas. Emotion is a extremely powerful divice in both prose and poetry, and I see it left out in a lot of writings. I horror/fright/fear don't have to be the only emotions in the story. Love, bleak happyness, sadness, regret, lonelyness, envy, rage/anger, want; these and many more emotions can be used in conjunction with the former to create a much more sophisticated piece.

This cliche is when the pasta starts off with " You got to..!" or "You must..!". Normally used to make the user feel as though the speeker is talking directly to you, it has now become way overused.
Prognosis: Instead, start off talking about what's wrong and, in the body itself, show the urgency of the situation.
This I have been running into quite a bit now. It's when the speaker is cut off mid-paragraph and the antagonist takes over and starts typing, normally ending it with "You're next". Th…
