First off, I feel that I must apologize for my absence. I’ve been happily exploring the world of fanfiction, specifically Bleach fanfics. I’ve posted a few of my works and it’s gone surprisingly well. The world didn’t end. I didn’t get crushed by flamers. And I’ve actually gotten better at taking constructive criticism. But honestly, the best part about it…I love it! I’ve always enjoyed the writing. But I’ve come to realize that I enjoy the feedback from the other fans as well. It is so cool to share my writing with other Bleach fans who appreciate and love the characters as I do. It truly is a great feeling.
I haven’t stopped writing my own original work either. In a strange way, the fanfic writing helps me. I’m able to exorcise avenues and themes that I really don’t want to put in my original writing but eat at me. They’re just very different but seem to feed off of each other.
