You know, I've forgotten recently just how valuable it is to do really short updates on this site. I've been consistently writing 2,700 words per chapter and trying to fit it all into 1 chapter when I really should have been splitting the chapter into like 3 parts. XD Makes me I could easily delete and reupload my chapters. Ah well.
Putting something up even when you don't have anything is also good advice. I think I might do that by putting up some character extras like I used to.
Some advice I have for authors is to offer a critique for a critique to other authors (preferably an ample critique far into the other person's story and vice versa). It helps bring up interaction (I trended on the front page when I offered this), establishes you as trustworthy provided you actually do it, and gains you a lot of likes. Additionally, it's just good to know what works in your story and what doesn't, you know?
