So, yeah, this week, the only writing I’ve done is fanfiction writing. Which, I guess, is better than nothing, right?
I saw once, that, not many people admit to writing fanfics. But then, the only fanfics you seem to here about is ones including real life people like Liam and Harry from One Direction being secretly in love with each other.
Obviously, there’s a lot more to it than that. There are fanfics for almost every single book, movie, tv show, comic and video-game ever created. Whether it’s a one-shot or multiple chapters.
And, for a lot of writers, those peices were some of the first things they ever got real feedback on from readers. Whether they were absolutely terrible, or absolutely brilliant. There are people willing to read it because they loved the book/movie/tvshow/comic/game just as much as you did.
And, I think that’s pretty awesome…
I also think it gives you a platform to develop your skills as a writer without having to put that much research in to it all. It also gives you a chance to better your character development skills too!
I’ve only properly written about 4000 words of an actual storyline, but its words I might not have wrote at all if I hadn’t started it!
I think it’s also just gonna be a fun little side project that I can enjoy when Diaries and Tales get a little bit too much for me!
Have any of you guys delved in to writing(or reading) fanfiction before?
I wrote quite a lot of it back in the day, and, I’m hoping to do a throwback on Wednesday on some of my favourite (and awful) fanfiction stories from back then!
Until then though guys,
Just Keep Writing,
