You know, I can say I've learned a lot in these forums. I have been here for... like 4 months, and in that time I just improved more than I had in previous years. But some advices didn't penetrated my (hard) skull until now. For example, no matter how many times people told me (thanks Cog) that the plot concept didn't mean a thing, I just obssesed over the plot. But now, I'm starting to get it. So in this thread, let's post our advice for other readers seeking it!
