So it’s been a while, and I’m pleased to say that despite my absence on here I have actually been writing again. Of course, it’s still not as often as I’d like but hey progress is progress am I right? Of course I am. 🙂
Anyway, a few months ago I rediscovered an old friend of mines fan fiction and fell in love with it. The more I read, the more I thought to myself that most of my writers block seemed to stem from not knowing what to write about or simply not being inspired. I had never considered myself a “fan” of really anything. Sure, I loved the Harry Potter books, Star Wars, and just about every “nerdy” thing under the sun but I am nothing like my husband who knows the ins and out’s of each book and/or story, wears all the merchandise we can afford on our meager paychecks or anything like that. I simply watch a show or read a book and watch/ read it all the way through and enjoy it at face value. There are very few things out there that I could find myself talking for hours about and yet as I continued to read my friends fan fiction I began to wonder to myself, what if I actually tried to write one. Was there anything out there that I knew the world and story line inside and out and loved all of it enough to spends months and/or years devoted to that story line tweaking and pulling out bits and pieces of it to make it my own. The more I considered it the more I realized there was one.
