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

Not trying to open up a can of worms here, but when drama happens in the fandom, like the last couple of weeks, does that inspire you or hurt your inspiration?

Surprising but I've actually been back writing again... Working on a couple. I got inspired to do a group story set when Kevin comes back to the group. I just thought it would be a interesting idea to play with, because there's so many about him leaving but not really about when he came back.

I like that idea!  I've been inspired too.  I don't know if it's because the fandom has been so active lately, or if it just happened to coincide with Thanksgiving and me having some time off to think about fanfic, but I've been plotting like crazy.  Actually writing, not so much yet, but I feel like it's coming.

LOL What can I say - drama in the fandom means more sources of drama for the fanfics, and you know we all love that kind of drama.

For me it used to depend on what kind of drama. Happy things would spark my writing more so than bad things. That time when they all lived together in a house is what brought me back the last time. Maybe if ine of them gets kidnapped lol
