Writing Fanfics. *sigh* It can be a very fun and rewarding thing
to do, but also, it can be a real frustrating hassle. When you write
fanfiction, it takes a lot of work. But in the end, it's so rewarding
to look at your finished piece of work and be proud.
be careful when you write, and always remember the the three E's: edit,
edit, and edit. It's always a great idea to send a fanfiction to
a friend for critique and ideas. I find myself always asking friends
for advice, and them asking me in return. ^_^
one thing you've gotta watch out for is writers block. Ahh! It's
a HORRIBLE thing that is SOO hard to avoid!! But there are a few
things to do to avoid it, and to rid of it. If you're trying to avoid
it, I recommend laying out the stories plot *before* you start writing.
That way you know where the thing is going. But if it still sneaks
up on you, there are a lot of things you can do to rid of it. You
can try to relax by switching projects, or stopping and reading a favorite
fanfiction classic. Sometimes by reading other people's work, you
get ideas! But I've found the BEST thing to do is ask a friend about
it. They can *always* help! Who knows, they just may give you
the idea that'll get you rolling! ^_^
NEVER, EVER forget to write an idea down the SECOND you get it! You
have NO idea how many brainstorms I've lost because of bad memory!
But even though so many obstacles threaten your story, never lack confidence
and creativity. When you pour you heart into it, what you get
back is well worth the work.
