Default Re: Gary-Stus/Mary-Sues. Could some help to understand this?

Good luck on your Voyager fic, Kugai!

Also, just something I wanted to add. . . an excellent resource that I've found is "Gotham Writers Workshop"- they're a writing school in NYC. Their on-line classes are a bit beyond my price range($$), but I was able to take a class through Barnes & Noble University, and I got one of the instructional books, Writing Fiction, which is an amazing resource. It has tips on characterization, theme, plot, dialogue, you name it. Also Gotham's website www.writingclasses.com has informative articles and excercises that arn't in the book, and apply no matter what genre you're writing in.
