Survey Questions

Email address:


What appeals to you about writing in this particular fandom (Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan, or Star Wars in general)?

What appeals to you about writing slash, in general? Is it the only genre you write, or do you also write gen or straight adult?

Do you write in other fandoms, or only this one?

Who are some of your favorite authors (either fan or pro), and do you feel you draw inspiration from their work?

Are there any particular themes/ideas that run through your work? Issues you like to address, genres (for instance, BDSM, angst, h/c) that are particularly appealing to you as a writer?

What would you like to see more of in fan-fiction and fan-fic communities, and conversely are there things of which you'd like to see less?

What is your favorite story that you've written, and why?

How important is receiving feedback to you?

Do you have any advice for someone just getting started writing fan-fiction?

Any closing comments to make?
