To start off, I love writing. Displaying fanfics for public view is something that I haven't considered until recently. By recent, I mean within the last couple years. I find that nowadays, I'm writing more fics that revolve around video games that I've played or shows I truly adore. I do a bit of my own orignal writing, so it's difficult to decide what ideas to use for fanfiction and what ideas I want to keep for my own story.
For a basic, simple profile, I'll just start off saying that I'm a girl gamer. I'm not hardcore, so I won't spend hours upon hours unlocking every achievement on every game for the 360, but I do enjoy the occasional shooter or RPG. Currently, I've finished Fable 3 and Dragon Age 2.
As I said before, I love writing. I tend to write either light fluff, or a dramatic short that isn't too depressing. I rarely write about character death or overly romantic fics, but I suppose everyone needs a challenge every so often. I'm mostly prone to humor or a story that may be have upsetting or sad tones but I usually throw in a ray of hope somewhere in there. I find that writing is a very good emotional outlet regardless if the feelings being released are positive or negative. I don't want to sound cliche, but the world is crappy enough as it is, so why not create something?
My thoughts on the use of fanfiction.net: I like it. Where else can you find such a massive source that contains almost every topic you want to find? It's also a good place to study, learn from your peers, and learn what other readers like to see. Reviews... well, if I receive a review, that's great. I'm ecstatic to see what others have to say. I'm not going to say, "I won't continue writing this if no one reviews." It doesn't work that way. I write because I like writing. Reviews are the bonuses for writing; they are not my inspiration to get something on paper or rather, a word document. Even if I receive a flame for no reason, it's not hard to click delete or report abuse, so I'm not going to take up room in my summary box to tell anyone who cares that I will not except flames. I'm just doing what I like, and if I receive some form of abuse, I'll just simply click a button, and poof! It's out of my life. How cool is that?
My general writing routine. First off, I just scribble down whatever goes on in my head. The most important thing is to get the outline done first . If I have a certain line of dialogue or a scene I really love, I will put it down on paper first before anything else. After the outline to the chapter is done, I go through it at least three times, inputting different things such as detail, character development and dialogue. I try to have a general balance of all three factors. I generally don't have a beta reader for fanfiction because I tend to change some things from time to time, and I usually do not like waiting for a chapter to get back to me because I'll forget what I want to input. When I am mostly satisfied with the chapter, then it's click and post. From there, I just pray and hope that people like what I wrote.
Well, that's pretty much the update for me. Writing's a nice outlet, but that doesn't mean I won't enjoy an exceptionally well timed head shot either. See you around.
