With every good story comes good writing.
Sadly, not every story is accepted into the wiki for various reasons because the story was either filled with so many grammatical errors, things that have been over-used, etc.
Now I know what you must thinking, "Didn't almost anyone on YouTube mention these overused tropes and what not?"
Well yes they have, but it's my turn this time.
This is my "Top 10 CreepyPasta "No No's".
10: Using "unknown" as a tag
If you use the phrase "unknown" as a tag for your story, then there a few chances that it will get deleted.
9: Over usage of the word "hyper realistic"
This is pretty much a basic item of a story that has been used one too many times. Describing something as "hyper realistic" is way too repetitive and mundane. Not only that, it will lose the attention of any reader a lot quicker.
8: Unoriginal plots and characters
The plot may not make sense and the characters may be too "sketchy". That's because some people are desperate and leave us with a plot or character which may not belong or does not have a point or personality whatsoever.
Need I bring up "Jeff the Potato"? Rip-offs or in some cases "Mary Sues" or "Mary Stu" are bland copies of original characters.
Please stop... It has been used too much.
5: ALL CAPS
SERIOUSLY?!!?!?! CAPS LOCKS ARE NOT REALLY NECESSARY!!!!! THERE IS NO NEED TO SHOUT!!! (Sorry, had to provide a point)
4: Referencing other CreepyPasta characters in a story.
CrossOvers were fun while they lasted, but now it's time to move on to something else.
3: Killing someone off early
How can you tell a story if the character is slaughtered way too quickly?
2: The "Jeff the Killer" formula
It's been used too many times and it is lazily repeated over and over again. Protagonist gets bullied, protagonist loses their mind, protagonist kills... Rinse, lather, repeat.
1: Spelling errors
If people stop reading at the spelling error, they'll just laugh and make fun of it. The best way to avoid spelling errors is to look over the story multiple times and fix any grammatical errors you find or use spellcheck.
Which "no no's " did I miss? If you want to tell me, feel free to provide some feedback.
