Last Week’s Discussion:
Last week I decided to bring up a topic I’d seen on another blog: fanfiction. Why? Well, partly because I used to be a contributor and reader of fanfiction, but also because I think it plays a huge role in the fan world.
Still, anyone can write fanfiction and therefore the quality can be both really good or really bad! That being said, I had to bring a question to the table. Is fanfiction good or bad? Here’s what my lovely readers had to say!
“Fanfiction has evolved completely and totally from it’s original purpose. Some people still use it to create the ideal endings for their characters but for the last few years, at least the writers are follow, I read new and unique and creative stories with wonderful writing. […] I now see fanfiction as a way for aspiring authors to spread their plot wings before taking a chance and creating their own characters.”
It would seem I was put in my place in regards to FanFiction, but I suppose that’s what happens when you’re not constantly up-to-date. That being said, there is still a wide variety of people who write fanfiction and a wide variety of the quality and purpose. So, while FanFiction may be a great way for new writers to test the literary waters, I offer a warning should be looking to read fanfiction. You never know what you’ll find!
