Note to all loyal fan-fiction writers:
I will keep writing; however, it needs to be at my own pace. I appreciate all the encouragement to keep writing, but I have a life outside of Fan-fiction and Fictionpress that can not be forgotten. If you wish to review my stories, constructive critic and/or ways you think I need to improve are very appreciated.
However, all these reviews urging me to keep writing and place my life on hold are not the type of reviews I need. I value all my reviewers and their input; on this site, we are not judging based on age or other stereotypes used in day-to-day life. We are writing stories to improve our plot development skills.
Note to Young Fan-fiction Writers:
I wanted to give a big shout-out to any Fan-fiction writers that are in high-school or college. As a college graduate trying to get into a Graduate Program for Creative Writing, I want to say to all of you one simple thing: All of you have the potential to be the next generation of creative writers!
I joined this site when I was in my first year of high school and have stayed connected with the community of Fan-fiction and her sister site, Fictionpress, ever since. My talent has developed from reading many stories on this site and, much later on, taking up my quill and placing ink to paper once again.
Fan-fiction is a great site for young, aspiring writers to practice an essential writing skill that many people that go straight into original stories have trouble with: Plot Development.
In Fan-fiction, the characters and settings are already there. All you're doing is "re-inventing" the plot based on your dissatisfaction with certain elements in the original plot. As long as you give credit to the original authors, this is a perfectly legal and acceptable practice.
I hope that all writers on this amazing site will keep encouraging each other; especially the teenagers and young adults, like myself.
Read this if you believe in God, and read it even if you don't.
A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her." Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're never alone. Did you know that 98 of teenagers will not stand up for God, and 93 of the people that read this won't repost it?
