How to Write a Good Summary for Your Fanfic by Dreamflower

Author:Dreamflower
Title:How to Write a Good Summary for Your Fanfic (Because if you say you suck at summaries, who will want to read your story?)
Rating: G
Theme: Non-fiction
Subject: How to write good summaries for your Tolkien fanfiction.
Type: Tutorial
Author's Notes: All of the sample summaries come from actual summaries within the Tolkien fandom. However, I've left out the titles and the authors and other possible identifying information from both the good and bad examples. This is not to avoid giving the authors credit, but to avoid embarrassing the ones chosen as poor examples. I realized that if I gave anonymity to the poor examples, I should also do so with the good ones. If you have read the stories in question, I request that you do not "out" the authors in your comments, please.
