Some Excerpts

Why did you start writing hanfic? How long have you been writing?

Why did I start writing Hanfic? I started writing, because I ended up getting this really great idea and when it just didn’t seem to fit anywhere else this little light went off in my head. It told me to use Zac! It was several days after I saw them and I was left wondering, why have I never used them before? It fit the plot perfectly, and so I began. I have been writing Hanfic for maybe a month? In general I have been writing since I was around 17, I’m now almost 26.

I know you write in a few other fandoms, too. What are those and how are they different from the Hanson fandom?

I do! I started writing Nascar fan fics, I have quite the collection and have been writing them for nine years. I have also dabbled in Jonas Brothers, Honor Society, and even a bit of country music. Currently I really enjoy writing All Time Low, as well as Marianas Trench fics. The Nascar fandom differs in the aspect that you aren’t setting this in a world of music (obviously), but like the other fandoms they still live on the road, travel, and deal with a lot of the same media issues etc. Each fandom seems to take on it’s own personality, sometimes you’ll find two with a similar personality. I really can’t explain it, but they take on their own tone in some ways.

Where do your ideas and inspiration come from?

Anywhere and everywhere! Sometimes it is a song. Sometimes it is something that happens in life. Other times it could be a dream I or somebody else had. I pick up inspiration from just about anything. I tend to get some of my best ideas in the shower or my truck, while driving.
