I encourage everyone who reads anyone to comment. You're probably here to get free content from others in the fandom that just want to give back. Please, don't just be a consumer if you want to see more writing. Give the writers feedback. That being said, your first/only communication with a writer should not be "update" or "update soon". We all realize people are anxious for new content, but that doesn't come off as a compliment. It's incredibly rude. Reach out to writers, thank them for their work, and let them know you look forward to seeing more or just say nothing. That choice is yours, but demanding new work, even if you see it as a compliment, will cause writers to stop posting. Thank you.
I'm a new writer, hoping to self-publish some of my original worlds/works. To get my courage up to do so, a friend suggested I try my hand at some fanfic and send that out into the world. She thought it would let me see how people felt about my writing style and get me some feedback. I rely on my dialogue and descriptive character movement. I'm not a literary fiction author, though I hope to build that skill. I have a lot to learn.
I've made a spreadsheet of templates for writers. You can access it at the link below. I'm open to suggestions if there are other templates you'd like to see built.
Also, some of the readers here and I made a Google Hangout group to talk about SuperCorp, fics, and all things gay. Feel free to join up if you want to chat.
