I wrote on a type writer too and I still have it. There's something about it that I like. The smell of the ink and paper.

Julie I did that but I would take my floppy disk to school and use the school computer when I was on fanfiction.net . That was the first place I posted my stuff before I found AC. I like AC a lot better.

So cool!  I've never used a real typewriter before, but I love the idea of it!

It was a lot faster than going to the library and printing things. I used to do school reports on a typewriter sometimes if I didn't have time for the library.

That's so neat that you had an actual typewriter to write on!  Do you still have it?

I had an old PC in my room by the time I started writing fanfic, but it didn't have an internet connection.  This was back in the dial-up days, of course.  So I would write in my room, save my files to a floppy disk, and then move to my mom's computer to get online and post stuff.  To read fanfic, I would copy/paste chapters to a Word document, save them on my floppy, and take them back to my own computer to read offline because my mom would get mad if I stayed online for hours at a time, tying up the phone line.  Eventually I got internet in my room, and that made things much easier!

Sadly no, I eventually broke it. I adored that thing though till I got my own computer LOL. When my sister gave me the computer she set me up with internet too cause her company paid for it so until I was like, 18 I had hers. Then they switched her to broadband and I had to get it myself. So I was always the only internet user in the house cause my parents weren't really fussed about learning it.

I was fancy too, like it had a delete option if you made a mistake. I remember my dad saying he wasn't sure if I'd like it but my mom was sure I would and she was so right lol. But she loved to write too, only she wrote poetry. So she always understood it.

What got me into writing fanfics was a Take That story I read back in about 2006.  I'd never come across it until then.  I thought I'd have a go.

There was a question earlier about crossovers, I've done a BSB/Supernatural one in the past.  Would love to do another.  Maybe BSB/Outlander or something like that.

BSB/Outlander would be so unusual lol 12/10 would read though.

I was thinking how I'd even go about writing a BSB/Outlander crossover, it would have to be AU Smiley
