Author has written 15 stories for Harry Potter.
I saw the following quote accredited to Professor Brian Cox and thought it applied perfectly to fan fiction too.
"The problem with today's word is that everyone believes they have the right to express their opinion AND have others listen to it.
The correct statement of individual rights is that everyone has the right to an opinion, but crucially, that opinion can be roundly ignored and even made fun of, particularly if it is demonstratively nonsense."
I shall try and remember this the next time I receive a foul and abusive message telling me that a certain fictional character would never act the way I just wrote them, therefore I must be insane, stupid, shot at dawn, etc. etc. etc...
Still enjoying writing, a busy festive period and then some home decorating pushed Chapter 9 of Coward's Grave back. Hope to return to a fortnightly posting schedule - if real life allows.
Have tried for most of the day to upload Chapter 15 but FFN not playing ball. Will try again tomorrow.
