INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING OUR STORY POSTING
It is best not to write your story off the top of your head. We suggest you write
your story on your own word processor, run it through your spell checker, reread it
over several times for errors, and rewrite it until you and your best critic think
it is perfect. Then you can copy/paste it into our Storystar story writing text box.
But please do not paste anything into our story posting form except for just plain
text with no html code, bolding, underlining, pictures, etc....
Remember that once you submit your story to this website it becomes a
permanent published record of your writing skills at this moment in time. So please
be sure you have given your story your best effort and that you are proud of it
before you place it online for the world to read and judge.
Please note that we have a story size limit of 50,000 characters of text,
or about 5,000 words. If you submit a story that is longer than that the end of your
story will be cut off when you submit it.
You can find out whether your story fits into the form by pasting it in and
then hitting the ENTER key on your keyboard. The Storystar character counter will
then tell you how many characters of space you have left, if it is less than 50,000
characters long. OR, it will cut off the end of your story that exceeds the length
limit and show 0 characters remaining on the counter. Each letter, and each space
between words, counts as one character. A big space between paragraphs, or a full
line of blank space, counts as two characters. Our story window accepts up to 74
characters per line, so your story can be a maximum of about 405 lines of text long.
Once you copy/paste your story into the text box please check to make sure
it retained all the same spacing and punctuation you intended. If not, then adjust
it accordingly before you submit it. The story will look exactly the same on the
permanent web page as it does in the story writing box.
Please remember that R rated and racist stories and language are not
accepted on Storystar. If you have used R rated language but your story is not R
rated then you'll need to either replace the words or replace some of the letters
If you have a story you want to publish that is too long you'll have to
condense it and take out as many non-essential parts as possible. Remember that
Storystar is for SHORT stories. Please check out our helpful tips on how to write a
good short story.
