Nice thread. Okay here we go:

Short:

I write to explore new possibilities.

Long:

Fanfiction for me is a good way to explore new ideas in a fandom where the characters are already created, and in an already established setting. I find writing for Inuyasha as a good base of practice for later on when I want to attempt original work, or that reclusive novella. I don't have to think too much, just snatch Inuyasha, Sesshy, Kagome (and the crew) and chuck them in a salad-bowl, whip in some sauce, and mix em all about. Plus I like to poke fun at Sesshy. He's a way too snooty, and gloriously 'Lordly' character to be taken seriously all of the time.

Re:I write to... 6 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 10
Short Version: I write to set my inner world free.

Long Version: I had gotten into fanfiction when I was 11 and I was watching sailor moon and I was on a sailor moon fansite. I began to work on my own, found my wings in SM crossovers, then found my way into more anime and more to love. I came into the Sesshy/Kag pairing when i found a fanfiction on ff called Boarding School Blues and I fell in love with the ice prince and the heartwarming miko. I mainly write to get away from reality, to get out my ideas that just swarm in my head. I write because its theraputic. Writing is always something I enjoyed, sometimes i get writers blocks but I almsot always finish what I start. Writing is my life, without it and music... I'd probably be in a very bad place right now.

I didn't write a long version earlier one. (Do not makes me another banners, r0o.) I wasn't sure how to describe it back then.

The storyteller, who in books and movies always has the ability to produce a story with not just flowing motion, but a lively atmosphere. to be able to create such an atmosphere as if there words are jumping off the page to whisper in your ears, that is a fascination of itself. I write to let this storyteller of many tongues out and about; so that it can be free to enrapture the heart and soul of many of those who wander in from those cold winter nights (because you always see a storyteller in front of a fire) who can then tell their family and friends about the stories they heard. Maybe even perhaps be able to see their own story from something that catches their eyes from within the story, whether be something a simple as a golden comb or as complex as an emotion that enveloped them at a certain point in time when reading it.

I write to stay balanced and keep sane.

I’m a journalism student and a lot of what I need to write is either theoretical papers for class, or bland news reports with just the facts. I use fanfiction, online roleplaying and freestyle writing to keep my heavy description skills sharp; it also provides a mental rest from all my straightforward writing. Its nice to be creative and not necessarily conform to a standard writing style or be limited in how I can describe something, or how much description to use. To make myself a better writer I try to hone many different writing styles from formal to more creative and artistic forms. Writing can drive me insane or keep me sane; it’s all in balancing the formal with the informal and having fun doing it.

Sorry

Long version: Before I found out about fanfiction I would often have ideas of how I would like the stories I read to end, which was often very different from the original. Writing is a chance to play around, channel ideas and see things from different angles, which is what makes it so great! By writing, I share my thoughts, feelings and views with others.
Thank you for giving the long answer


Thank you! My first banner ^^

Short: I write to let out the crazy.

Long: I've been writing since I was in Kindergarten. Poems, short stories, songs, and occasional research type papers and dreams. I would love to one day publish a novel, but I always have a hard time finishing what I start. Writing fanfiction helps me work on my writing (and particularly my story ending) skills so that some day I may be able to get ALL the crazy out. Plus I just lurve Sesshomaru and the entire Inuyasha cast (even Naraku on occasion!)

[b]I write to...free the chaos from my mind. (r0o could you make a banner for me too please?)

Besides drawing, writing has been a outlet for me. Sometimes what I can't say out loud sounds better in words. I use to be shy and not very outspoken so when I was younger this was my way of getting attention and for people to listen to me. And it worked. I'm more outspoken now (and not as shy) of course but my writing has helped out a lot. My emotions and feelings I have problems telling (even to my family and my husband) out loud. I think emotions are a weakness to a degree (and with everything happening it seems that I've just had an emotional and mental meltdown, crying at the drop of a hat too! ) and writing helps me cope with that insecurity. As my saying above says writing helps to free the chaos from my mind. Because if I didn't write I would probably be in a room with padded walls right about now...
O_o some how this entry, i saw it but i never poster the banner i made, which has been made since mid October, so b/c of this you have 2 banners. @_@ I'm sorry about that!

Re:I write to... 6 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 12
I write to keep an important part of me alive. This sounds strange, I know, but I’ve come from a long way....

I started writing at the age of six. Because I was able to read before school enrollment, reading classes were absolute boring. You know those little stories about Fu and Fara, those orange socks? I hated them. So, instead of falling asleep in class, I began to write little stories. Nothing big, just little oneshots about animals or people and such. After writing them I posted them on the walls for everyone to read and my classmates actually enjoyed them. And I enjoyed it, when my classmates laughed or smiled while reading them.

2001 I got my hands on the internet and soon enough I entered the realms of fan fiction. I wanted to read more about my favourite characters and of course, write about them as well. Yet publishing to a larger audience? I hesitated at first, but eventually I wrote some pieces for a German archive, for DBZ, Star Wars and Ranma ½. But with the loss of my internet connection for some years, I stopped. Recently, I discovered some of them and I was shocked! I almost cried at how badly they were written.

Anyway…

About a year ago, I found myself in my deepest crisis yet. I was lost, I was at the bottom and I never wished to appear at the surface again. I really didn’t know what to do to gain control over myself again. Therefore I decided to ask for help. I don’t know if it really saved me for good, as I am fighting those demons on a daily basis, but at least, I found some pieces of me again. Among them: My love for the written word.

I was in a group where we wrote poetry and stuff and even though I produced no masterpieces, I was happy to write again! The power of writing should never be underestimated.

So after I had to leave the group I decided not to fall into old habits again. Unfortunately, I failed. It was last November that I started again. And to make it a bit more challenging, I decided to write in English. I hope to improve my English by doing this, as well.

When I write, I feel like I am solving a puzzle. I try to connect the pieces together, search my brain for new ideas, gain new perspectives and, of course, to have fun. I publish now, because every reader that has a good time reading my stories throws a little rock at those stupid demons.


That is way I’d love to have this pretty banner with the words:

I write to fight the demons within me. Hedda

A bit too lofty, but then again… I have a knack for things like this.^^

Hedda

Short: I write to have fun and provide fun.

Long: I write to when I don't remember precisley when I started writing, but ever since scoring a perfect 6.0 score on the FCAT Writing Test, I've tried to develop this gift to the best of my ability, aspiring to eventually write novels. Along the way I've come across other people, communities, and more, and the rest as they say, is history.
