The methods I've listed are best chosen during the planning stages of your story, but they can be applied after the fact with just as much success -- as long as you don't mind taking a hack saw to your story.

Yaoi Writers: MASCULINE?
Yaoi Writers: MASCULINE? Authors: OokamiKasumi A common error that every beginning Female writer makes is that they assume that their male character will feel and react in the same way they would.

BASIC Sentence Structure
BASIC Sentence Structure Authors: OokamiKasumi In order to make my stories crystal clear in my readers’ imaginations, I write in precise Chronological Order, the order events actually happen, PLUS in the order that the eye (camera) sees it.

This is because the basic composition of an Essay (what they teach you to write in class) , isn't anything like the composition of a Story. Type:
