Random and Mundane #7: Fanfiction

I like fanfiction. A lot. I used to read it before one day I said, “Screw it, let’s write a fanfic!”

It got little no page views. I had one loyal reviewer. It felt like I was writing for that one person.

Occasionally, I would get a new reader who’d leave a review.

I wrote one story in Spanglish and someone commented, “We can see that you’re obviously not bilingual.”

Ouch.

It bothered me for a little while. I just replied, “Grassy ass,” and moved on.

I still haven’t finished that story.

Not because of that stupid comment but because I didn’t receive any other comments afterward.

I felt as if the fic was as good as gone.

I still think about finishing it. For myself.

But it’s hard looking at your old writing. I do that and think, “why did I write that?”

It’s funny.

Trilingual copywriter and translator raising her biracial baby trilingual. I love raising awareness about diversity in the writing world. I'm also a tea snob who talks way too much.
