That, or try re-reading the fic when your brain isn't fried by sleep deprivation, and be utterly astounded that you can write such nonsense *sigh*

On topic, imho, the best tip in there is "ask why". A simple nod in acknowledgment of a little joke or a particular turn of phrase or plot twist always gives me the warm fuzzies, and I'm sure that's the case for all the authors here!

The sun goes down and the sky reddens, pain grows sharp.
light dwindles. Then is evening
when jasmine flowers open, the deluded say.
But evening is the great brightening dawn
when crested cocks crow all through the tall city
and evening is the whole day
for those without their lovers

-Kuruntokai 234, translated by A.K. Ramanujan
