- Keen to write your very first KeithAndAllura story but don’t know how to begin?
- Have a story already and keen to upload it to either http://www.fanfiction.net or http://www.archiveofourown.org or http://www.wattpad.com?
- Have a story already uploaded but no one seems to visit your story?
- Want to join in the ongoing KAEX fanfic challenge but don’t know where to start?
Here are a few suggestions to help jumpstart your writing:
A) From Belinda Pollard, Australian book editor, consultant & owner of Small Blue Dog Publishing:
B) Follow and/or subscribe to the following websites to receive regular #WritingTips
C) Just write.
Write your fanfic. I’ve read somewhere (i wish i could remember where)…
Write like no one else is reading it. Write like it’s only for one person in your life. Write it like you’re the only one reading it.
Go get a copy editor, proofreader, developmental editor, a beta reader. Go attend a writing workshop online or in your local area. Attend writing festivals.
But seriously, don’t write for fame or for reviews. Write for passion, from the heart, from your soul.
When you write what you love, nothing else matters.
And finally, remember to have fun. Make writing an enjoyable & positive experience.
