Hey! Do you remember watching your favorite TV Show or Movie as a kid and wishing, WANTING SO BAD, for two people to get together, or a certain situation/plot to happen? If you were one of those kids, like Megan and I were, you were already on your way to thinking about Fan-Fiction. In this weeks episode Megan and I sit down and take a long look at the Fan-Fiction community and what it means to us. We talk about how we got introduced to Fan-Fictions, what we like to write about and where we post our stories, why the community has a poor reputation, why it can be hard to "come-out" as a Fan-Fiction writer/creator, and so much more. Megan teaches us facts that might surprise even the most knowledgeable of creators within the community and why it is important to JUST START WRITING!
