Author has written 6 stories for Bleach, Tekken, and Anime X-overs.

I have to admit that from an early age I have always had an active imagination and I guess Fan Fiction is one outlet for it, really. I do not consider fan fiction to be a degraded form of writing, I consider it just as another form of writing and in so doing the pieces submitted should be given the proper respect they deserve. I also don't consider fan-fiction to be someone for the stereotypical geek, it in itself is just a hobby for people who just want to write, for fun, for studied seriousness or just plain profit. For me I write because I want to and that, my friends is that.

Writer's tips;

I've been writing for a while now, approximately two years of my life, though not always on this site and I think I have developed a competent understanding of writing style and content so I'll share what little tips I can give you.

- Try to put some depth into the characters, especially new characters you've created. Try doing this through their use of speech or their use of kinesics (body movements) and also through their appearance. Try and make the character lift from the page by giving them views or possibly an internal conflict that will drive the story along. Angst however does not count as an internal conflict, that's just a cliché.

- Avoid the use of puppy love scenarios within stories. These drive readers up the walls and out of the window, they seriously hack people off. A scenario of two people instantly falling in love NEVER happens in reality or at the very best, only happens once in a thousand lifetimes so simply no. Don't detract from using relationships as a connection between two people, whether they are friends or lovers, as this connection is vital in developing the characters themselves, particularly the emotional aspect. The last point is that when you write a story, differentiate between love and lust. Sakura admiring Naruto's body and falling head over heels in, "love," with him is not love, it is lust. Love is a true emotional connection between two people that is beyond the facsimile appearance of the flesh.

- When writing with any Anime/Manga story and introducing Western mythology be very careful when writing it into the mythos, I admit it is one of my personal bugbear points, I don't like it when people do that as I feel people are detracting away from the original text unfortunately.

- Don't use western names when writing Anime/Manga story and if possible try and move away from using names from animes and mangas because I've always found that when reading things like these it gives rough, awkward edges to a smooth narrative.

- Give depth to your story, try and use it to explore issues about the world and give a message to the audience. You can be as overt or as subtle as you wish with the message and there all sorts of ways you can do it through the incorporation of symbols in the air to the use of kinesics, clothing, metaphors, the attitudes of characters... basically anything.

- Always check the basics- spelling, grammar, punctuation, paragraphing... the basics, many a time a good story has been ruined and destroyed because of this, becoming what I like to call, "Flamer Bait."

- Edit your work- need I say more?

- Try to create depth within the narrative itself, try using not just speech and action to push the story forward but also symbolism, metaphors, descriptions... even the weather to push the story forward. Also try to hint at other little plot lines within the stories and possibly even future plot lines with subtle hints through kinesics or symbolism or whatever you like, the point is try to construct a story within a story.

- Take constructive criticism, it helps to listen to all forms of criticism even if it is exceptionally harsh, just use it to improve your work and prove those critics wrong.

- Don't take a flamer's abuse to heart, don't let them discourage you and keep on going.

- Last but not least; write for yourself- it doesn't matter who you are, in the end every writer who has ever written the smallest short story has always, consciously or subconsciously, written for themselves at the end of the day whether it is for the audience's pleasure for self-gratification or for the answers to the questions of the self.

-Most importantly, enjoy what you write, otherwise don't write it all.
