I am working on my entry for this contest. http://whatever.scalzi.com/2010/05/30/fanfic-contest/

It is a fun challenge. I think I have a funny idea, but I am hoping no one else does it.

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.

The topic of fan fiction came up this afternoon with a writer friend and how it can benefit the sales of a writer.

She asked me hypothetically if I would ever approve of Dylan and the Dream Pirates fan fiction provided it was picked up by a publisher.

Cut provided so that my wife doesn’t kill me.

So I just watched the Superman: Doomsday Movie.

Ah, yeah.

Err....it was both awesome and creepy. Overall, it was a good cartoon movie, with a single really creepy exception.

I realized this morning on my break that I based the appearance and some of the mannerisms of my main villian from Dylan and the Dream Pirates Talbot on David Bowie.

I can't figure out if I was inspired by Labyrinth, the Hunger, or the Venture Brothers.

I'll look at it the second time through and see if it is too obvious.

Imagine the wacky fanfiction that could come from that one.

[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....
