This post is about my ongoing search in looking for quality blog content. The kind of content that isn’t pushing some business or marketing strategy on me. Or tries to solicit to me to purchase something.
But first, I have a question:
What exactly is fan fiction?
Does it mean you take an existing character from a book or a movie and make your own story with it?
Can it be a celebrity or is that another type of genre in fiction?
For example, there’s a lot of fuss over Daryl Dixon from the Walking Dead. If you were to write a story about him, would that be fan fiction?
What if you write a story about the actor himself (his name is Norman Reedus in case you live under a rock). Is that still fan fiction even though you’re now writing a story about an actual person who exists and not a character that was created by someone?
I am so confused.
Maybe you know that I’ve been dabbling in creative writing lately. This is a little experiment I’m on, trying to push beyond my comfort zone. Doing something that’s a little…different.
I may or may not publish some of it in my pages listed above. Just for fun.
Why am I doing this? Well, I’m tired of all the parenting drama. So I needed an outlet away from that. This is what I came up with. Writing fiction. Romantic fiction. Steamy romantic fiction…lol (We’ll see…) 🙃
Some people write short stories and put them on their blogs. I ❤ those people (you know who you are)!
However, lately I’ve noticed an increase in marketing/business peeps following me on WP.
I have nothing against business blogs. I understand that creating a business and selling stuff via blogs or websites has a place in today’s economy. But I don’t understand why they’re following me.
When I click their links I see no content beyond ‘buy this, join that’. It doesn’t serve my creativity or my interest in following them back.
My blog is not about helping someone increase their business opportunities. It’s a creative outlet (for me) and, more importantly, it’s a community.
I’m not here for business, I’m here for creativity, community and for the love of writing.
I’m not interested in purchasing services or products.
But I am interested in dialogue, communication, sharing of ideas. Creativity. That kind of thing.
Although don’t be surprised if I complain about the parenting angle again…I mean, it’s such a big part of me, I can’t help myself.
It’s Tuesday! Used to be my favorite day of the week but not today…gotta rush off.
