Hi, and welcome to original_fandom. I'm not sure exactly what I'm doing right now, but that's what you're for. I'm thinking we can post snippets and finished work, exchange tips and tricks, maybe do some challenges.

What I would really love, though, is for you to tell me what you want and what you think would make the community good. Email me any ideas, or just leave them in the comments. OK? OK.
  • I think that original fiction writers need support. In fanfic you have betas and getting someone to read your work isnt really that hard.

    Original fic is a totally different story. Questions arise, plots need to be poked at, holes need sewing, and writers in general need a little proding.

    I would like this community to be a place where we can post our stuff and get help. Maybe a place where we can ask a research question or 'does this make sense' question.

    I like the idea of an orig fic comm very much.

    Good on you!
    • Oh, I totally agree that getting feedback on original fic would be awesome--lots of times you don't get any sort of response until you're done and, really, for fanfic writers who are spoiled by getting feedback and beta responses all along the way, that's really tough.

      And, yes, research and other questions, totally--I'm always digging and researching silly little things that maybe don't seem important, but they are important, so having a group of people to help with stuff like that will be fantastic.
