A few words of encouragement

Post by Robert Frazer on Thu 2 Dec 2010 - 23:03

Sometimes, when you're writing fanfiction or drawing fanart, you may be assailed by doubts; about the worth of the enterprise, whether you would be more improved by 'proper' writing and so on. If you are, here's a little something that I hope restores your confidence:

I've recently been reading John Buchan's Greenmantle (the sequel to The Thirty-Nine Steps). It's a great book in its own right - a ripping yarn of a spy adventure while still being quite literate, colourful and well-observed - but what stands out in particular is the preface:

"During the past year, in the intervals of an active life, I have amused myself with constructing this tale. It has been scribbled in every kind of odd place and moment - in England and abroad, during long journeys, in half-hours between graver tasks; and it bears, I fear, the mark of its gypsy begetting. But it amuses me to write, and I shall be well repaid if it amuses you - and a few others - to read."

If such an attitude was good enough for a man who ended WW1 as the Director Of Intelligence and who eventually became the Governor-General of Canada... well, it's certainly good enough for us! Smile

Can say there is the writer's inspire to write a good story for both yourself and hope the reader like it in the same time.
