I began reading Hanfic in 1998, and I think reading the works of others is what inspired me to start writing my own stories. I absolutely loved the creativity of Hanfic, and thought it looked like a lot of fun. I have been writing Hanfic off and on for close to twelve years now.
To be honest, I almost never outline and plan my stories ahead of time. Usually I get a sudden idea and I just start writing. I guess I’m not a very patient writer, because once I have an idea, I just like to see where it goes rather than sit down and plan it out. I’ve noticed that when I do have a plot outlined for a story, it usually turns out completely different than what I had originally planned anyway. When I write, I am more successful just going with an idea and seeing where it goes!
A lot of times I get my story ideas through music. I always listen closely to lyrics and sometimes I am able to use them to create a plot to a story. Music is definitely an inspiration to me when it comes to writing. I have a long ride to and from work each day and this is where I usually listen to the radio and gather all my Hanfic plots and ideas. Also, I use YouTube as an inspiration if I am having trouble writing or thinking of ideas. If I watch Hanson videos that I love or other music videos I enjoy, it usually helps give me the motivation to write.
