Some ExcerptsAbout starting to write:
About inspiration:The fiction was also very daunting in a way. I would read my stuff and then pick up something by Susan Lovitz or Connie Faddis and say, "Why am I doing this? Why am I bothering to put pen to paper because I'll never be able to equal what has come before... But the compulsion is still there. I have one now that I'm in the process of rewriting—I hate rewriting, by the way. And I've sent it out to a couple of people and they've said, "Well, I don't understand this, or I can't see that, and I realIze it's because I haven't told the story right. I know the story. It's like a little video playing inside my head. But they can't see that video, so if I don't get everything down the story doesn't make sense. Kind of like "Miami Vice" last season.
About what fandom runs on:I lean toward action. I rarely go into a lot of psychological probing as to why the characters are doing whatever it is they're doing. I find it easier to plot out a mystery-adventure because I love to read mysteries. To be honest. It's pretty easy to pull an idea for a plot from them... You don't really steal a storyline. You simply get ideas from it.
Fandom runs on trust. You send someone your money and you trust them to send you their zine. For the most part it works well. I've had a few bad situations occur in Trek, but, I think that's due to the fact the fandom is so large. I think we're getting past most of this, because I've never had anything bad happen with Starsky & Hutch or any of the other small fandoms. Knock wood.
