"Knowledge or Death!" --Voltron
"Be a sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them — in order that the reader may see what they are made of." --Kurt Vonnegut
…I was, as I said, twenty-five years old, and I had an idea for a book and I knew it was a real one. I tried writing it, and realized that it was a better idea than I was a writer. So I kept writing, but I wrote other things, learning my craft...It took me too long to begin, and it took me too long to finish...I had set out to write a book about a childhood...I was now writing about being a parent...I sat at the bottom of the garden, and I wrote the last page of my book, and I knew that I had written a book that was better than the one I had set out to write. Possibly a book better than I am. You cannot plan for that. Sometimes you work as hard as you can on something, and still the cake does not rise. Sometimes the cake is better than you had ever dreamed...We who make stories know that we tell lies for a living. But they are good lies that say true things, and we owe it to our readers to build them as best we can. Because somewhere out there is someone who needs that story. Someone who will grow up with a different landscape, who without that story will be a different person. And who with that story may have hope, or wisdom, or kindness, or comfort. And that is why we write." --Neil Gaiman, about The Graveyard Book

Years interested in fanfiction: 15
Why: I liked the idea of adding my own endings and scenes to books and movies. I read an excellent Harry Potter story in 2001, that has since been deleted, and I started cooking up my own stories, resulting in some Mary-Sues, that have since been killed.
First Fanfiction: It was for Harry Potter. The first fanfiction I really liked and actually allowed on this site? it was for FLCL (Fooly Cooly) and it's still there. For nostalgic purposes. Written in 2005. :D

All the things!
I hope I can write a lot this year.
I have a goal to write 50,000 words. Maybe not all one story, maybe not all fanfiction. But something.
