Epithets and Other Tendencys of Fandom Prose

Having recently run into the epithet controversy over paid work, I have been wandering about refreshing myself on the principles of clear writing.

And I stumbled upon something that I think incandescens pointed me at years ago. It was wonderful to reread these things that were learned from Fanfiction failures. *laughs* Arduinna wrote a collection of nicely written essays about the pitfalls of fanfiction writers, and, really, writers everywhere. I love how clearly she states the principles behind what should be done and why and when exceptions can be made for the rule.
