How many Fan Fictions have you had published on the internet?
Well, letís see. About a total of eleven. That really means nothing since Iíve been writing and publishing on the net since í99.
How do you get inspiration?
Most of the time, I get ideas, tons of them, while waiting for the bus. Since thereís nothing else to do, might as well think about ideas for stories.
Describe the type of fanfics (themes, characters, etc.) that you like to write.
I also like to explain why certain events happened to certain people, how they wound up the way they were portrayed or a possible result of actions we saw in the game, and the end result further along down the road.
Right now, Iím basically on a trip of writing things that makes you want to care about the character so much that your upset or shocked, or any other radical emotion you might experience when you read about something that was totally unexpected. Thatís the only way, I feel, you can really tell a story, if you care about characters.
How often do you write?
What is one of your pet peeves about writing fan fictions?
What are your pet peeves about reading Fan Fictions?
And also, the first sentence should pull the reader in, letting the reader know whatís to be expected. Itís not a good thing when it just lies flat on itís face doing nothing to want to inspire any further reading.
And, if I could ramble on a bit more, I also donít like the HUGE paragraphs some authors like to have in their stories. Multiple chapters when the story could obviously be a one-shot is a bit troubling as well. And having characters act out of content is something that kills me.
Ex:ďIíll kill you, you motherf*&*#!!Ē Marle yelled.
Thatís so unlike her, itís not even funny.
Do you have any advice for soon-to-be writers?
Thatís the only way you can expand your mind and write things that are truly enjoyable. And go beyond the realms of fanfiction. Read such people like Robert Zelazny, George R.R. Martin, Mark Twain and, dare I say it, Shakespear. Youíll learn much more valuable lessons on story construction that has been tested over time.
Do you have any questions that you think should be asked that are not on this form (And answer them please)?
What inspired you to write fanfiction? I always liked to write stories. And then I found that their was a way to have stories that you wrote available to the public and feedback could be available and I jumped all over that.
Were there any stories that you knew were pretty bad, but still published it, or later looked back and realized it was bad? Yeah, most def. The very first fanfic wasnít too hot. I totally messed up on a MAJOR timeline fact which would make the whole fanfic totally pointless. And the second fanfic I wrote was just one huge fight, with clichťs running around like it was some kind of marathon.
Have you ever wanted to do a collaboration project? Always! Right now, I finally got it going on with two very excellent fanfic writers that I hope will be finished soon (as soon as I start it. ^_^) Wanted to do a colab. Effort for sometime now to see if some of the skills of other fine authors would rub off me and just to see how the story would turn out.
Do you write epics or one-shots, and whichever one you favor more, would you ever consider doing the other? I do one-shots more often than epic stories, or long stories in general. I really just write the story as long as I need to tell the story. I donít set out saying, ďIím gonna write a nice 50 page story with eight chapters!!Ē It just doesnít work like that. I donít know HOW many pages a certain scene may require. So far, the longest, completed story is three chapters long, 20+ pages. Uncompleted, I have a 50+ pages story thatís been sitting here since í00 and is nowhere near completed. Itís just whatever tells the story, without it feeling rushed.
What are some links to your stories so that people will be able to go read them? Com'on A little self promotion never hurt ^_^. Also,
if you have a site, list it here (Indicate that it is your site though)
