I have been on FF for a very very VERY long time. I'm not always active, but once in awhile I'll be hit with THIS train of thought: "hey! I wonder if there's a fandom for - oh. Oh yes, there is. And HOLYTHISISAMAZING."
I fell in love with Tamora Pierce's Song of the Lioness when I was very young. It's what first inspired me to write, although it took me another several years to feel comfortable publishing anything. It's been almost two decades since. I've had the pleasure of being involved with many fabulous and remarkably talented fandoms. FF has been an outlet, an escape, a comfort, a constant in my life. Although I have little in the way of formal creative writing training, FF has given me the chance to be a writer, and to become a better writer.
I try to review every story I read, and I love getting feedback for my own stories (particularly if you 'favourited' it - I would love to know what your favourite bits were!) IMO, one of the great things about fanfiction is the community of talented writers and unique individuals behind each fandom, and I love when we get to chat about the stories, the fandom, writing in general, life in general...
There's a magic of that keeps me coming back, inspires me to keep writing, and leads me to believe that a good story doesn't end when the book/movie is over. So thank you all!
