Writing is
a great way
to take a vacation 
via your imagination.
It can even be a great way to vent your frustrations! 
 But, where does one begin? Why not start writing for fun!?

What is, “Fan Fiction?”

Fan Fiction (also called fanfiction or fanfic)  is when you take one or more characters from your favorite series and create your own stories for them. You can set these stories in the world they were originally written into, or you can put them into a world of your own creation!

Is Fanfiction Illegal?

Because you do not own the rights to the characters, you cannot sell – or, in many cases, even really publicly publish – your fanfic. However, there are lots of online groups where fanfic is not only welcomed, but sought after and shared privately!  Try Reddit, Facebook, and Wattpad for starters.

Why not try your hand at fanfiction?  Just try writing for fun!
