Story Title

A good story title means good click bait.

Examples of good story titles:
Eragon
Alice in Wonderland
Divergent
The Runner
Yellow

Tips for a good title:
-Simplicity makes a story title good; short, speedy and sharp.

-Close your eyes for a few seconds and forge a word in your head, good writers use this method often.

-a story title as an adjective can be good. (E.g Twisted, Disorientated, Hollow, Tangled, Crimson)

-a story title with the character's name is also very useful, can lure readers (E.g Lucy, Alicia, Sebastian)

-a story title should be 1-6 words long, with an exception of Comedic novels and a few others.

DON'T:
-include spelling mistakes, it makes you look silly.

-incorrect capitalisation, there should be a capital for the start of every word in your story; excluding 'of' and 'the'(must be capital if they're the first word in the title)

-have a title irrelevant to a plot, this one is obvious; don't give your readers the wrong ideas

-Have full stops

-must not be the same as your description

Examples of Bad titles: (none of these are actual titles)
My OC Lily the hedgehogs story
Big bad evil Titan
Story about my sister hope you like it.
Random love story I wrote
roge cremsom dreams
warrior cat and Harry Potter crossover

Here's one:
First person and Third person. You need to know when to use it, which can intensify the story more, and which can make the reader feel more involved.

Another tip would be to try to keep the same tense throughout the story. This is something I personally sometimes struggle with.

Ah I'll add a chapter about that, I thought it wasn't a big deal until I tested it out myself ^_^

This is really good, glad I've been doing things right or I would've felt silly, if I saw any "don't do's" that I was doing I would've taken this advice, but it's really good
