Does anyone do any non-fan fic writing?

Where do you share it?

I do! I don't really share it online though as of the current moment.

What genre do you write?

I write original work as well. I'm actually looking into getting an agent at the moment! But yeah, I also don't share my work online.

Ah Xtreme! Glad to see you're still writing too! It's been a long time (for both of you actually)

Same to you!

Honestly, I became a better writer because I learned so much from everyone's writings and feedback over the years.

I feel you there bruh. Literally I think I started writing on here when I was like thirteen/fourteen (maybe earlier) which was a scarily long time ago and I think I learnt a lot from everyone on here. Everyone was so supportive as well. Those were the days eh?

What's everyone writing?

I'm currently deep into a novel I've been planning for a depressingly long time (but nowhere near finished go figure) but I'm at a bit of a writers block right now so I'm delving into fanfiction again, to try and keep my creative juices flowing. The novel itself is, i dunno, a mix of Bret Easton Ellis, Haruki Murakami and Gabriel Garcia Marquez (magical realism) with a heavy focus on pop culture. I guess I'd call it surrealism/magical realism with sci-fi/fantasy elements.

Fanfiction wise, I'm weirdly into this rewrite of the marvel universe i started like, no joke, about 12 years ago. I've had the plans and I've just started like writing it. Currently on #3 and I'll probably post it at some point but I wanna get the first three arcs boxed off first so then, even if I do abandon it, it can read like a full story, i guess.

Oh and I tell a lie. I do have a writing tumblr where I occasionally (very) post short scenes.

I keep meaning to get back into it but I'm awful with regularity

I haven't written in over a year (maybe even 2 at this point) fan-fiction lost its luster for me after a bit. I keep having ideas for original short stories (generally horror/folklore inspiried...think Hellboy I suppose to bring it back to a shared reference). I imagine they'd be short stories rather than anything else.

I just need to get into gear and actually put 'pen to paper'. I saw a horror press looking for submissions in the next couple of months so thought I might give that a go.
