I wrote a little fanfiction story today for fun. I did it after my normal work.

Writers need to play more often. My way of saying good-bye to a classy lady. It is silly how fun and easy this was.

A Good Day

Today has been a good day. When I awoke, I was a little sad that I was not at the Yummy Gras Party. I've missed two fun things two weeks in a row, but it was for the good of my health.

My face is healing quickly. I no longer look like Two-Face and I can talk fairly normally. People can still tell that something happened to make me talk a little weird, but nothing too bad.

I slept a very solid sleep until about 11 in the morning. I rarely sleep so long as a single time. It felt like heaven.

I added about 500 words or so on a Heller Mystery story titled "A Simple Job" and then I decided to play for a bit. Writers need to play with words.

I started a personal essay titled "Midnight in the Heart of New Orleans Near the Statue of Ignatius" about my own personal visit to NOLA last year.

And then, I had an idea burst into my little brain about Doctor Who. As many of you know the fine actress Elisabeth Sladen that played Sarah Jane Smith died recently. I had an idea burning inside of my eyeballs wanting to get out and so I played for a couple of hours and I wrote a story involving the Eleventh Doctor saying goodbye to Sarah Jane.

A lot of writers harsh on fanfiction, but I think it can awesome and I would die of sheer delight if someday people are loving my stories so much that they write fanfiction.

I am off to dinner with an old friend and then I will settle into watching the next Doctor Who. I am trying to be spoiler free and it is very difficult.

I very much enjoyed the first of the new series of Doctor Who. Lots of allusions to Peter Pan. I approve.

I have finally succumbed to Twitter at @jasonbandrew.

Somehow a friend of mine was under the impression that I hated fan-fiction.

Quite the opposite. I think it can be fun and brilliant and a wonderful way express your love of a piece of work. Media Work aka Commercial Tie-ins are very much a professional form of fan-fiction.

I was dared to show a piece of my fan-fiction and so here and now I present my Doctor Who story that I came up with when I thought there was going to be an anthology for which I could submit it. The anthology never happened, but I felt a burning need to tell this story.

I imagine that is how most fan-fiction starts. http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=30697

I am big fan of Torchwood and the New Doctor Who series.

I was very disappointed that Torchwood series 3 was only a limited series. That said, I really enjoyed Children of the Earth.

[livejournal.com profile] insatia sent me a link to a wonderful essay about fandom and Doctor Who. I highly recommend it.
You can find it here: http://teatimebrutality.blogspot.com/2009/07/canon-and-sheep-shit-why-we-fight.html

I wrote a Doctor Who fan fiction story. Well, I wrote it for an anthology that lost the license and then released it as fan fiction. You can see it here: http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=30697

Research Links:

I love maps: http://associatesdegree.org/free-edu/fascinating-ancient-maps/

Free On-line Novel:

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making: http://www.catherynnemvalente.com/fairyland/

This is an interesting experiment. The one thing that television can do better than a set novel is the concept of a serialized fiction. Every week you get to find out a little bit about your favorite characters. This is a good way of matching that special addiction. I wonder if it will work.

I am very jealous of the people getting to watch Season 4 of Doctor Who.

[livejournal.com profile] insatia and I are usually very busy on Fridays and so I've missed all of them on sci-fi and for some reason they haven't posted them on-demand.

[livejournal.com profile] insatia and I have been watching the Two Doctors DVD. The story is really slow and well boring. I'm not feeling the Sixth Doctor. I do like the Second Doctor. We stopped watching because we were bored. Maybe the next series will be more interesting.

There's been a lot of discussion about fanfiction lately.

A Star Trek fan film "Worlds Enough and Time" is on the ballot for the Nebula, which is the award that the SWFA gives out. There's a great deal of controversy about it. Granted, it looks like it is a better film that most of the Trek from the last ten years.

Check out: http://kradical.livejournal.com/1178770.html#cutid1

Fanfiction even has a group trying to get the laws changed. Check Out: http://transformativeworks.org/ and http://writ.corporate.findlaw.com/hilden/20080121.html

Oddly, Steven Burst, a famous professional writer, has released a fanfiction novel. http://dreamcafe.com/firefly.html

I wonder how that is going to work for him. I've read that several writers I respect occasionally indulge in fanfiction.

I'm not anti-fanfiction, but I've always thought that you had to concentrate on the prize, but I can see the benefits. Fanfiction gets released to a hungry audience and new writers are often starving for feedback.

I'm considering making fanfiction a reward for hiting milestones. I have three solid ideas burning in my head for a couple of different fandoms and one has been rejected.

My wife has cracked the whip to remind me to get back to writing. Signing off....
