After much contemplation, I have decided to slowly begin rewriting Love of a Spartan. I have finished the first draft of my original novel and I'm currently playing the tedious waiting game of sending queries to various literary agents. In the meantime, I figure I will tackle the monster that is LOAS and its sequel. Any original fans will see a lot of positive changes.

I am no longer actively writing new FanFiction. I have since signed onto a permanent contract with the Canadian military, and will graduate from university with a BA in English in December. My time here has been great, and I am grateful for the friends that I have made through the mutual love of writing.

Firstly, I'd like to say thank you to everyone for all of the support and constructive criticism received during my time here on FanFiction.Net. The positive feedback and the lovely people here inspired me throughout my teenage years and fuelled my desire to keep writing. Writing is a skill that is constantly evolving; it can be just as challenging as it is enjoyable.

I began publishing works on FanFiction.Net as a young teenager, when my writing skills were far from polished. Despite that fact, I had a rather he large fan-base that bloomed from the Halo Love of a Spartan series. I had never imagined it would garner such attention. Looking back, I realize it was terribly titled and filled with cliches, however, it does still hold a special place in my heart. It showed an evolutionary timeline of my writing skills as the series was written over a span of six to seven years. It also gives me a good laugh.

My advice to all the aspiring writers out there: if you love writing, keep doing it. If someone tells you that you are terrible, don't give up. Take their criticism positively. Everyone has potential to improve. Do some research. Practice your grammar. Re-read some novels from your favourite author and see where you can improve when you compare your writing to theirs. Write a little bit every day. It's good for the soul. And don't be afraid to step away from FanFiction. Create your own world, your own characters - see where it takes you. It could be somewhere great.

I stepped away from FanFiction and began writing solely my own works. I enrolled in creative writing courses with my university, and they were amazing experiences. I am now in my final year of school, writing my first novel in a one-on-one course with my professor, who is also a published author. I never imagined I would be able to do something so wonderful. Never give up!

Thank you again for the years of support. Happy writing.

Sincerely, AshleyBudrick.
