Some Excerpts

I started writing Hanfic because I loved Hanson and I’d read stories by several other people and I was like ‘hey, I could do that too.’ I read it on websites, but a lot of my early interaction with Hanfic was via the old yahoo groups before they became yahoo groups. Before I went on a two year hiatus, I had been writing for about 9 or 10 years with the years 2003-2005 being my most successful based on the number of stories I wrote. And I’ve been back to Hanfic for about two months now.
When I was younger, I used to open word and just start writing and I could work on two or three stories at a time. Nowadays, I try to focus on one story and I have a hard time opening word and just writing when I don’t have an idea of where I want to start, where I want to end and what I want to happen; you can blame that on my English degree. After I get the initial idea sometimes the rest of it comes flying out after and other times things come slowly and I have to piece the ideas together as they circulate in my head. From there I start plotting what I want to happen in the story. I can’t start a story without having a general idea of how I want it to end and how I plan to get there. After I’ve done all of that, then I start writing the story.
My ideas and inspiration for things come from all over the place. Mine and Natalie’s story If I Don’t Kill Him First was inspired by Hanson’s Detour livestreams that cracked us both up. The shower seems to be the place where a lot of ideas come to me, not quite sure why though. But I’ve been inspired by songs. There was a story I wrote a few years back where I was inspired by Fourth of July star necklaces that my grandpa gave my sister and I. It’s just a bunch of random stuff and there’s a lot of stuff just floating around in my head, getting stronger and stronger with each day that passes.
