Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 18. If this were a movie, it would probably be R.

Rule 1: Unless your story is at least 100 pages long you shouldn't divide it into parts and pay some attention to choosing the correct Maturity, Difficulty and Tags for your story.

As I happen to be on holiday for the first time in about 900 years I've managed to write a little story game offering some examples I've brainstormed or seen recently in badly-written stories of how not to write. Like it's older cousin, The Land of Bad Writing, this story uses examples of bad writing as a way of showing how not to write and I don't have any one story in mind particularly in writing this, just practitioners of bad writing in general.

I've decided to base this story on Pokemon for no other reason than the fact Fan Fiction requires less creativity than most other styles of writing and because Pokemon reminds me of when I was a little Will11 and I, my ten brothers (all coincidently called Will as well) and my nine sisters (the Wilmas 1 to 9) would gather behind the nuclear waste and anthrax testing facility in the woods outside our little trailer park called Asbetos to trade black market Pokemon cards for Plutonium with a mixture of Gypsies, Elves and the Dutch... basically I'm writing about Pokemon because I'm feeling a little Nostalgic today :D

(Rule 1.5: Don't write lengthy and pointless descriptions offering fake autobiographies to your readers).

As you humans say, LOL. This definitely taught me how not to write, and was simultaneously entertaining.

Now this is what I call entertaining! It's a really clever way of teaching how to write, or rather, how not to write. Loved it!

I hated the cliffhanger, but all the lessons that you were trying to teach (especially about not leaving cliffhangers) were very valuable ones.

Quite useful to the new users who are looking to write a great story one day, or even just a small one that probably won't get much attention.

Helpful for avoiding the obvious mistakes and acts as a reminder to any starting out. Does so in a comical fashion which is a nice touch. Anything beyond that you should look elsewhere.
