Hey guys, today I thought I’d talk about something that I’ve thought of doing before but have never actually really tried: fanfiction.
We’ve all heard of fanfiction, if not read it before: works of fiction written by individuals who are fans of a certain piece of literature or show. Some big examples are Harry Potter, Supernatural, and even My Little Pony. People love writing different endings, new couples, or even inserting themselves into the world somehow, but fanfiction usually encompasses some aspect of the original story into their own.
Now I’ve never personally read fanfiction (at least that I wasn’t forced to as a teen from my friends, by my friends), but I’ve really wanted to write fanfiction and I just don’t know where to start!
I have lots of couples that I wish actually happened or scenes that I wish had been played out more or differently, and I want to write them in my own style and everything, but I just never have.
I think my biggest reasoning is that since they’re not my characters and it’s not my piece of work, I feel I don’t have the right to do so.
I mean, I know that fanfiction is a big thing and a lot of people like writing it – and that’s great! But how do I get over that barrier and actually write some fanfiction?
Anyone have any tips for writing fanfiction? Where to start, what kind to write, publishing it on Wattpad or another fanfic site? Please let me know!
