*Welcome to Sassy Lil Scorpio's corner on FanFiction.Net!*
Hello! I'm "Sassy Steph" and I'm from New York :-) I'm a fun-loving Scorpio who loves to write!
As my profile shows, I have written in various fandoms, my favorites being WWF (before it was changed to "WWE"), Kill Bill, and Jurassic Park. I hope to write fics about Chicago, Spider-Man, Finding Nemo, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Wicked, The Craft, Death Note, Bleach, Se7en, Sweeney Todd (film version), and whichever fandom that inspires/intrigues me in the future.
I like to complete my fics before I post them because I know how ugly (and long-lasting) writer's block can be, and how it strikes when you least expect it. This mainly applies to my multi-chaptered fics, although I have written more one-shots. Writers block, editing, proofreading--for all those reasons, I wait until the fic is totally (or 95%) finished before I post it. However, as all writers know, you're never truly finished. There's always something you want to add, subtract, multiply, or divide in your writing. Sometimes the hardest part is leaving the writing alone and letting the art stand on its own.
I hope you enjoy reading my stories. I love rivalries in fanfics, especially when that rivalry comes from two characters on the same side. My favorite stories involve drama, conflict, angst, relationships (romantic, friendship, or otherwise) character studies--what I call "serious fics". Emotional and character driven fics attract my attention. I especially like stories that revolve around a fandom's minor characters.
It may sound selfish, but I write what I love. You must write what you love, regardless of what others think or want you to write. If I enjoy what I write, then I'll be happier with my writing and it'll reflect in the story. I put time, effort, and passion into my writing--sometimes it can take months, and even years, to tell my story--so I should take pride in what I write, and write for myself. It's always an incredible compliement and very worthwhile, if readers greatly enjoy what you write. Just remember your vision as the writer and write with your heart.
Check out my favorite authors and favorite stories, they're awesome writers and fics! There are many more I can add to my list too. I haven't read from every single fandom on the site, so there's definitely more gems out there. These are the ones I have found and really enjoyed. Each writer's style is different. Mix them up together and they'd all stand apart from each other. Everyone has a unique writer's style and voice and you can tell when you read the fics on this site.
For all those out there writing your fanfics: keep writing! Any kind of writing is excellent practice. If you believe your story is real, then it will be real to those reading it (as I was once told). Writers write. You don't have to be published to be considered a writer. If it's in your heart to write, then you will write. I want to say thank you God for giving me a constructive outlet to express myself. I hope to meet other writers here and improve on my writing.
Thank you to all my readers and reviewers! To my readers: thank you for taking the time to read my stories. It truly means a lot to me! To those who review: your feedback: constructive criticism, suggestions, reactions, praise, and encouragement are always appreciated! Thank you!
Keep this quote in mind:
"If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it."
(The same applies to fanfiction.)
Great writing books I recommend for everyone:
The Pocket Muse by Monica Wood
(I don't remember if I borrowed "Writer's Creed" from somewhere or if I made it up myself. It was in my journal and is dated 12/30/2001. I figured I'd put it up here...)
* I will write with a whole heart. *
Constructive criticism is welcome and appreciated!
