Author has written 1 story for Naruto.
Hello there! :)
I find that writing fan fiction is one of the best ways if you want to help improve your writing without a lot of thinking - because, although there ARE exceptions, the hard part is done for you. The characters already exist, along with the way they interact with each other and the world that they live in. When an author writes fan fiction, they can be just as creative, showing their perspectives on the characters they are writing about. They are able to tweak with them, experiment and try to figure out how they will react in different situations, circumstances, or different worlds. And these are the reasons I write fan fiction; it gives me practice writing and I enjoy it. I mean, isn't that why people write it in the first place?
I'm a procrastinator and write whenever I want to, whenever I feel like it. I also work on several things at a time, depending on what strikes my mood. Therefor, do not expect me to know when I will be updating next because I will not know myself. As much as I hate to say this, I'm writing for purely selfish reasons. I want to get better, and I figure it would be cool to post what I come up with so that I can have an idea of what people think of it.
...I guess it's also to try to give back to the people who have already written fan fiction, or the people who like to read it. If you like reading what I wrote enough that you'd want to follow it or even finish it all the way through, that makes my day. So I guess it's not purely selfish reasons I'm writing then, is it? ;)
In truth, for anyone who's interested, I have seven stories started at the moment and a list full of ideas on stories I want to start. I tend to work a little bit on one and then go to another... and then through the whole list and then back to the beginning. So if updating for a story is slower than whatever speed ends up being my usual, it's most likely because I'm working on something else (or nothing at all... :3).
