I don’t understand why people think fanfiction writers aren’t real writers.
I mean, have you ever read a fanfiction? Have you read how wonderfully their descriptions are? How well they know the characters?
I am a full-time writer and I write my own stories but I’m far below the average Fanfic writers when it comes to writing scenes and describing emotions.
If a writer writes a retelling of old work/fairy tale, they’re applauded and praised but that’s what Fanfic writers are doing. Retelling a story in a completely unique way with old set of characters.
It just annoys me. But shout out to all the fabulous Fanfic writers out there (yes, even though you write fanfics about my anti-ships). Thank you for your selfless contribution to our fandoms (and fantasies which we know won’t ever happen).
Fandoms and the world of storytelling are incomplete without you all.
I have nothing but utmost respect and love for you. 💗
