A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
Have you every written any fan-fiction? If yes, why and for which book(s)? If no, would you like to and for which books(s)?
For that matter, do you ever READ fan-fiction??
Now, i was thinking about this the other day. I’d love to write some sort of fan fiction properly, having had to do it once for a school project. We studied the book Holes by Louis Sachar, but this was way before the movie was released and became so famous. We had to write a short story about what happens to the children once they had left Camp Green Lake. Now, I read this back a couple of years ago and it was nothing short of terrible. But, in my defence, I was only about 11 or 12 at the time.
I’d like to write something, but i think it would have to be done very carefully because i wouldn’t want to disrespect the original book in any way. I’m not sure what sort of book i would like to use, but it wouldn’t be anything really popular like the Harry Potter series or Twilight, just because they are so popular and people are so familiar with them.
I read a little bit on a couple of blogs sometimes, but its not something that i do religiously.
