Hubby's job takes him away a lot. So reading and writing fanfiction smut helps. If you have raging hormones like this author and you believe cheating on your girlfriend/boyfriend is wrong--read away!
I just wanted to send out encouragement to writers too shy to write. Maybe you think you're too old or too young to write fanfiction. Or you might be afraid someone thinks your story is stupid. Who cares? If you love writing or painting (or whatever it is you love doing)...just do it! Life is so short. Do something you enjoy.
So what, if the hobby you enjoy is stupid? Fanfiction is really stupid. Look at me, I am making an ass of myself all over the internet. But I enjoy writing and seeing where it takes me. Or I could simply purge. If people don't like what you write, take feedback but don't be discouraged.
Once upon a time, people wrote fanfics about their religion. The Tragic Tale of Doctor Faustus, Milton's Paradise Lost, and many of Charles Dicken's works use strong Christian motifs. These non-canonized tales became our classics.
Tale of Two Cities, A Christmas Carol, Oliver Twist, Great Expectations? All Christian-based themes. Charles Dickens literally published his stories chapter by chapter in a weekly periodical...which is kind of how we publish on fanfiction. One old lady complained to Dickens about his perpetuation of the stereotype of evil old maids through Miss Havisham. Dickens wrote an apology. In addition, Dickens added Miss Havisham's redemption to the story.
I do read your input...with many grains of salt.
I'm not saying to publish to fanfiction. No one pays you for shit here. But if you love writing-- write!
