My very first blog about my very first fanfic.
Thursday, April 13, 2006

So I finally got around to finishing my first ever fanfic. I do mean very first as I have never been moved enough to write a story based on any other fictional characters.

Okay, I wrote the story in a manner I remember from my childhood. I guess it turned out similar to a script or play in terms of format. When I copied it though it didn't quite turn out the way it looked on my wordpad. Live and learn I guess.

The story is mostly driven by dialogue. Not a lot of description. Most of the things I spent time describing were people or places we are not familiar with. That being said this thing consumed much more time and ended up being a lot longer than I expected. Nearly twenty-seven pages on Word at just over 14,000 words.

I would really like some feedback as it pertains to our BDH with regards to their dialogue and how they reacted to the situations I placed them in. If I'm dead on I'd like to know, if not then I need to fix some things before I embark on any other stories. I would also like to hear some of your thoughts on the character I introduced as he will be appearing in at least one other story I have kicking around in my head.

One last thing I want to say is that writing this was in no way easy. I have always regarded myself as creative but I never imagined the difficulty involved in taking an idea and fully realizing it on I mean computer. That being said I have nothing but respect for all of you who can rip off fanfics at such a rapid pace. Mine took me nearly a month! I cannot imagine the strain of writing a full blown novel.
