My writing.

As many of you know, I started writing fan fiction in 2008 after I lost the bookstore and moved from Williams, AZ. It was a rough couple years, still is, since the job I found only lasted a year and I am once again unemployed. I got lost in the fan fic and wrote a lot of it. Just out of curiosity, I went back to one of the sites where the fan fic i wrote is posted, and people are still reading my stories. A few are for a more popular show, but most are for a rather obscure show that most haven’t even heard of. Readers have found typos and such, and pointed them out, but no one has ever left a negative comment on any of them. The only two stories that had no hits last month are short fluffy pieces, that didn’t get many readers even when i wrote them.

When I look back, and reread those, especially the first ones, wow, I can really see how much I’ve improved. I know i still have a long way to go. I have come to think of the time i spent writing fan fic was teaching me how to write at all and marketing research I think i have a pretty good idea of what a section at least of teens like to read.

The stats in the image below are for November, 2011. About three years after I wrote them, and the one show went off the air after only one season.

My dream, is to have that many readers per month buy my own, original Quirt and Brody stories that I’m working on now.
