How often do we wonder about a fictional character or a celebrity and fall in love with them. Basically, the idea of them being someone important to us in our small brain. We portray them according to us in our story even though we know they are nothing like how we see them on the screen. When a woman is in love, she does things she never thought she could do. Like, writing being one of them.
I was 15 when I had my first celebrity crush. I was head over heels in love with him. My mother was mad at me for being so crazy about someone. Technically, about an actor of course. But, soon she realized that it will not be over soon. Well, not at least till I watch all his movies and do a year long research on him. I’m 20 now and the fever is still there. I mean not that crazy but yes, still crazy enough to watch all his movies first day first show.
During all these years I had so many crushes and none of them were anyway near the first one. Like, I wrote a goddamn fan fiction about it. Yes, a fan fiction. I knew exactly how to start with my writing journey and at the same time re live some characters in my story according to me. So, that’s how my writing journey began. I wrote a fan fiction. I never thought that people will actually read it and appraise me for that and also encourage me to write more and more everyday.
For a girl, her journal, her blog, her diary or her story matters a lot. When I started writing I was madly in love with books and stories and other people’s fan fictions. If you will ever read someone’s fan fiction, you will see their emotions flowing. They might not use tough words or correct grammar but whatever they write will touch your heart. There are so many people out there who writes like professionals and they publish their stories on platform like Wattpad and WordPress. If you read their story or article, appreciate them. Tell them that they’re good.
So, coming back to the point. Fan fictions are the new hit. So many people write in this world and only few of them gets a publisher and so many people just write for fun but whatever they write is amazing, unbeatable. A person’s wild imagination runs openly when he/she writes a story that’s about those characters she love and live daily. We watch movies and like some characters but we never think about them as someone else. Like, we all know Harry Potter, right? Now think as it a change. A chance to live the story your way. It’s not like you are violating some rules or someone’s story. You’re just putting their characters the way you want them to see in your way. We all loved how Harry Potter ended except that Severus died and Hermione ended up with Ron instead of Harry. I mean most of us loved the end but there are people who wanted to see the story with a different end. So, here we create our own imaginary world and write the story with same characters but different plot and agendas. And of course different couple ships.
So, let the imagination run wild and free and write fan fictions if you can because there’s nothing more interesting and expressive than a person writing.
