    But still, if it was a character visualizing, it would flip over to 3rd person wouldn't it? My main character is very vocal in her mind, so it would otherwise have her talking to herself about things, and for this I would rather the scene and the mood just speak for itself. This wouldn't be a common thing...

    Yeah, in that context, it would go to 3rd person.

    Woohoo, I'm not crazy! :excited: I thought that was how the rule worked...

    Hi, everyone. I'm a new fanfic writer with a total of... one story on this site so far. It's a JHH fic called A Robotic Heart, with Digit as the main character and the narrator.

    I have a little problem (besides not knowing the immediate actions of the next chapter). Even though I put a lot of time and effort into the story, it gets very few reviews. How can I get more reviews for my story?

    The only thing I can think of off-hand is alter your sig to give a brief description (very brief) like "The Story of Digit, Muppet Cyborg" or something like that.

    It could be because a lot of us didn't get to see the show he was in. I remember what he looks like but I don't remember ever getting to see the show :(

    (nods) That makes a lot of sense. That's a problem with cross-overs, as well.

    Well... Bear in mind that every thread posted here, including fanfic stories, have two numbers beneath them. The first is the number of people who've read through the thread, including possible multiple readings by the same person; the second is how many people have replied. But one thing I always say is... So long as the story is one that you as the author want to keep telling, then keep writing/posting. The people who do reply appreciate what's come so far. Hope this helps Cait. :) :cool:

    Your fic has ten reviewers :). One of mine only has seven and two of those people aren't members anymore... I think you are doing fine :)

    Just wanted to post this here for more promotion.

    Ladies and gentlemen, from the creative mind of AnimatedC9000 (and the technical help of RedPiggy), I give you the trailer to A Robotic Heart!

    You know, a topic for just promotions of fanfics might be a good idea. In other fandoms I belong to it is common place to post written ads like movie trailers in a single topic to draw in new readers :).
    I won't worry about your fanfic though Animated, it is doing very well for a fanfic here :3

    Yeah, we might as well. :)

    We have an advice thread, a discussion thread, might as well have a promotion thread too.

    *hee* I always say the mark of a good fanfic section is having all three sorts of topics, it really gets things hopping:excited:. I usually start a discussion topic when I first join a forum if there is not one already, it is a force of habit...I hope I am not making a pest of myself:o

    I might be going back and posting the edited version of Midnight Place here once To Sing is done...
