Author has written 16 stories for Twilight, Big Bang Theory, and Blood Ties.
A/N: I'm wrapping up my fan fiction involvement in the Big Bang Theory (Shenny) fandom. I want to thank you all for reading my fictions over the years. From a tale of acute mysophobia, through a journey into the afterlife, a reimagining of Sheldon and Penny's first meeting, to a rewrite of the current show, with a stop in between for an Artificial Intelligence love story, you've honoured me with your insightful and encouraging comments and, more importantly, for taking the time out of your day to read my work.
A note for those aspiring to be writers—if you've got a vision, write it. When I first started I had one review on my first chapter of Daily Occurrences—and it was a complaint! I felt disheartened but I continued, a) because I had written out the story in full and I was not gonna let it sit on my hd and b) I believed in it.
I've received three pieces of advice from reviewers about writing that I'd like to share. 1) Treat your story with the respect it deserves. -So no shortcuts in writing, songfic inserts, or posting without editing. You have to let your ideas be seen in their best light and that's through a story that's written with your best effort. 2) A story will tell you how long it's going to be. –Don't worry if it's 100 or 100,000 words, just write out the story. 3) Don't be afraid to write what you want to write. –Ignore the trolls and don't be afraid to introduce your readership to something new. Yes, you might lose some of them but if your writing skills are sound they'll keep checking for future fics (and might even give the new fic a shot!).
Be experimental! Try something different! Fanfiction is such an awesome medium in which to spread your wings because we're already here because we've looked at our favourite show or movie or book and wondered, 'what if...?', and in that moment Canon is to the wayside and we're wholly in the imagination.
Thanks so much for giving me a place to gain confidence as I relearned how to write.
All the best to you and yours, my fellow dreamers. *Lynn
