Apparently I have never edited my profile...? Not once in seven years. I'm not sure if I should be impressed or a little exasperated with myself.
For me, fanfiction is a way to practice the actual act of writing. It allows me to focus on how I write more than what I write, if that makes any sense. I already have all the basic ingredients - places, characters/characterization, the 'rules' of the world - and I just need to throw them together with my own plot and perspective. I know some people would cringe at the idea of learning to write through fanfiction, but I've learned LOADS more writing here than I did in three semesters of fiction writing classes.
And, of course, it's fun playing out my own head canons and what-ifs with the characters.
I feel very fortunate that other people have enjoyed reading these things I've had so much fun making. I can't describe what a confidence boost it has been to hear all the kind things people have taken the time to tell me. So if any of my readers stumble across this, thank you!
If you have any interest in seeing me be five thousands times less articulate...
