I would say that the biggest thing I have had to teach people over the years it patience. Use that imagination to flesh out the idea, don't rob us of it. You got a great idea, but there are a million tiny things that make it up. Don't rush to tell us the story in a single post. Tell us how you got there, the pulse of the moment, the feel of it against the skin. Connect us not only to the character, but feel that we are there in the moment. I think the longest I took for a sub-plot to mature was about four years with J'het. Like cooking, you can't rush a good meal. Take nothing for granted, season it where you need to and simmer long enough to get everything out of it that is needed.

All those tiny details and moments of your life that make you who you are also make your character who they are. Every post can contain another small bite. Where did that tiny scar above the right eye come from? Why don't they like the color green? What terrible memory makes them never want to return to some specific planet? What long gone friend will they always miss and why? First loves, who taught them to pilot a ship, who the bully was that stole their lunch in grade school and every other endless thing that might make them real and connect us to them all counts. We share many things in common. All the joys and pains that are life should not be overlooked, because the story is about the journey, not the destination.
