I'm never entirely sure what to say in these sorts of things... I love writing and I've been doing so since I was 11. Luckily, I'd like to think I've gotten better since my first few stories (which are embarrassing to look back on now) and I hope to one day be published.
Fanfiction is sorta cathartic for me. I'm working on my own novels, and it's hard to rip and tear those apart. I like to come here and write for someone else's established characters where the heat is (mostly) off. Fanfiction is also good practice for shaping my writing up better. This way when the original works put me off, I can work on this and there's no giant lull in my writing.
The problem with my writing (and probably every one else's on the planet!) is that it comes and goes. Some days I really want to write and I can't. So there might be unfortunately large spaces between updates on mulit-parts. But I'm trying to be better about it. Since I work 12 hour shifts I try to write on notebook paper. It kills me. You have no idea how.
Anyhow, I love writing original works because it's all mine. But there's something so fun about dabbling in a really cool world I didn't create with really cool characters I like in some way or another. Thus, I don't think I can really ever abandon fanfiction totally.
I'm not as prolific as I once was and writing is an off and on thing for me. My real life gets much more attention so I have to be honest and admit if you're looking for someone to finish things quickly I'm not your gal. I used to shoot writing out like a fiend and get stuff written in a matter of days. But I tend to jump between personal writing and fanfiction back to writing one on one with people, so something usually gets left behind. It tends to be fanfiction for the most part because I'm not as into fandoms and anime as I once was.
Still, the urge comes and goes, and it might take me years, but I think everything on this page will probably get finished at one point. I might even post new stuff as the urge strikes. Fanfiction got me started writing like a fiend again in 1998 after a year lull on writing, so I'm attached to it and indebted to it.
My currently posted multi-parts:
Fear the Fall: This story is... and up and down thing. I started it in 2004 and left it alone until 2008 because life got too busy and writing took a back seat. The first four chapters are from 2004 and they don't relate all that well to the next four because of the changes in canon since then. I'm thinking of editing the first four to fit, but then again, I'm not sure I want to. I'm kinda iffy at this point in whether or not I actually want to finish this or just take it off. I was getting going on the next four chapters and I feel like I've just hit a wall again. It nags at me still though and I have a few ideas of where I want to take it and in a more structured direction. Question is, whether or not I can get myself to do it. I have a tendency to go like gangbusters and then back off again for a while (which you all probably noticed, lol. I dunno. I might work more on this.
A Simple Man: This started at work when they called me off and then called me back in at 2AM. So I was in drastic need of staying awake. I'm not sure where it's going or if it's going to get written on for a bit. It might only be a few chapters long or... who the hell knows. I'm not sure whether I'll work on it more or not.
C&C is always welcome in any form. Constructive, that is. I appreciate any and all reviews. It's nice to have your ego stroked, for sure, but I also don't mind when people have something to point out that they think needs fixing. Writing is 10 percent writing and 90 percent editing. Just give me a break and remember I'm not a perfect writer yet. In other words, at least be nice. I'm only human and attacking my writing does bother me whether I really want it to or not. That's why I say constructive. I don't look for people to only say what I like or want to hear about my writing. Just don't be rude. _
