A Little Bit of Fun
So, you may have been wondering what I’ve been up to lately. I haven’t been doing as much reading or blogging as usual. Yes, there’s been work and, not too long ago, the holidays, but I’ve also been playing around with something new. I got into it (once again) because of my sister. See, she’s always on this site called Wattpad, where she’s been writing and publishing a One Direction fan fiction.
She really is obsessed with that band. Her and every other teenage girl in the world, it seems like. She’s got posters hung up all over her side of the room so that every time I go to open or close the door I see Liam (apparently the cutest one) staring back at me, she’s got a Twitter account just so she can follow them, and she’s always telling me all these random facts about them (and getting mad at me when I get them wrong). So it’s probably not surprising that she also happens to be writing a fictional romance about them as well, but she wanted me to join the site so that I could “fan” her and such. I agreed on the condition that she would start following my blog. Yes, even though it was thanks to her suggestion that I start this blog in the first place, she hadn’t been following me up to that point. Ok, so she hadn’t realized that you could follow a blog with just an email address but still.
So I joined the site, read her story, fanned her, voted for her, all that jazz. And then I thought, “Hey, as long as I have one of these things, why not use it?” As it turns out, I have a fan fiction of my own that I started writing just for fun a while back. (Not One Direction) I knew I was never going to be able to do anything with it seriously because that’s just the nature of fan fiction, but I saw it as a fun writing exercise and it turned out pretty well. So I published the first part on the site. And then the second soon after. Now I’m up to five parts, a few pages each. I just love having something out there that people can actually read for once as opposed to the novels I’m endlessly working on alone in the hopes of getting them published sometime in the far-off future.
Anyway, I thought you blog readers might be interested in checking it out. I’ve tried to take a fresh approach to it so that you won’t even know what type of fan fiction it is at first. No prior knowledge required.
