We have seen that many writers who submit their stories to XIS, don’t write them properly. Because of this, the publishing of the stories gets delayed. The writers then send emails asking why their stories have not been published.
First of all, you need to know that every story that is published on XIS, is reviewed by the XIS editor. The Editor, first and foremost, check whether the story meets all the rules given in the ‘XIS submission guidelines’.
If the story is written as per the guidelines and all the criteria are met, the story gets approved for the next step. This is where the Editor checks how the story is written.
This means the editor checks for the mistakes in spelling/grammar/punctuation. If there are minimum errors, the story gets published as soon as possible (mostly on the next available slot). But there are very few authors who submit stories without any mistakes/errors.
Most of the stories have a lot of errors, like spelling mistakes, grammar and punctuation mistakes, etc. In these stories, the XIS editor corrects all the mistakes before publishing them to give a smooth reading experience to our readers.
But the process of correcting so many errors takes a lot of time. And this is one of the reasons why there is a delay in publishing the stories. Hence, we request you, our writers, to keep in mind certain points while writing the stories. If these points are followed, it will be easier for us to publish your stories.
1. Whenever you write a story, write short paragraphs of around 3 to 4 sentences. The sentences should also be short, making the paragraph of around 30 to 40 words.
When the sentences are short, it is easier for the readers to read on the small screen of a mobile phone (which most of our readers use). Also, when the sentences are long, a reader will forget the beginning of the sentence by the time he reads the last word!
So please keep in mind to write short sentences and about 3 to 4 sentences in each paragraph.
2. While writing the paragraphs, please use the proper punctuation marks. For example, a dot “.”, or a question mark “?” at the end of a sentence. A comma “,” should be used for a shortstop in the sentence, or when giving a list.
I touched it, and he left a soft moan, which just made me hornier. I held it in my hand, tried to stroke it a few times. But it was hard because he still had underwear and shorts on. I pulled them down to his knees, and finally, it was free. I saw it only under the dim night light of my room.
3. If there is a conversation between 2 or more people, please write in separate lines and also give their names.
Me: Hey, I am leaving, so bolt the door.
Preeti: Why? We didn’t have the main course.
Me: I don’t have any protection currently.
Meenal: You don’t need to worry.
4. Don’t do too much of anything while writing a story. Some authors write a proper story but put in too many punctuation marks. (For example: ………,,,,,,,, !!!!) Sometimes they even manipulate the words. (For example: soooo, yesss, pleeeaasse).
Some writers just write a single letter like “u”, or “k”, etc. Please understand that the Editor does not always know which word you want to put there. So please write the entire word.
Avoid short forms like ‘omg’, ‘af’, ‘asap’, etc. Not all readers are aware of the full forms, and they might get irritated if they don’t understand these letters.
5. Please write about sex, seduction, sexual intercourse in the major part of the story. After all, you are writing a sex story. So, the more erotic it is, the better it will be liked and enjoyed by the readers.
6. Make sure to include some dirty or bad words while the characters are going through sexual intercourse (or fucking). However, make sure that there is a decent limit. Don’t use language that shows that it is forced sex.
7. If your story is very long, you can submit it in many parts. But avoid giving the same introduction in every part. Make the beginning interesting by writing about the last part, or thanking the readers for feedback/comments.
8. If you are writing a story in English, please stick to the same language throughout. Same, if the story is in Hinglish. Please understand that the people reading one language can’t always understand the other one as well, even if it is just conversation. So please use the same language throughout the story.
Tip: Before submitting your story, please read the latest published stories and compare your story to them. Check if the spellings, grammar, and punctuation are matching with them.
If you follow all the above rules, then it will be a great help for us to publish it as soon as possible. But if you don’t follow any of the guidelines/rules while submitting the story, then it can take up to 2 to 3 months for the story to be reviewed.
Note: If you have contacted us and we have referred you to this page, it means that there are a lot of errors in your story. Please write the story again, keeping these points in mind. Otherwise, you will need to wait as it is going to take a long time to edit your story.
