I started reading fanfiction when I was 14 and thank GOD I did. It not only did wonders for my verbal skills (check out my SAT score if you don't believe me) but it also brought up so many aspects of human nature that I would never have thought about if not for the stories I learned them through. Basically, reading taught me to dig a little deeper.
I've started writing again in the past couple of years, after taking quite a long break to learn the difference between thought-out, well written stories and a tropey high school disaster. Everyone grows up and starts writing more maturely eventually, so that's where I am right now.
I'll try to find everything and publish it here, but you can also find it all on my tumblr at ravenclawslibrary
