Hi, I'm Grace, the main mod for this blog! Welcome to the grand experiment known as fuckyeahauthordog.
These Author Dog memes are for any writer, and if you've ever felt like you can relate to them, I've done my job. I'm happy to help with any questions you may have about writing in general, and we often have discussions about different aspects of writing, so don't be afraid to speak up. Also, FYAD will try to help you out if you send in some of your work to the blog - submissions are encouraged!
Enjoy. And, as always, happy writing!
I write fanfiction as well, and I would absolutely recommend it for writers who need a practice outlet. I've found it to be a great motivator for when I'm not in a writing mood but know that I have to do SOMETHING. And I appreciate you for saying that it doesn't always equate into bad writing. It can be as good as you want it to be, and it doesn't make you a lesser writer than anyone else.
Fanfiction isn’t real? But aren’t all stories inspired by other preexisting stories? Granted, some FF writers commit lazy writing, but that’s no excuse to denounce all FFs. Fanfiction is a wonderful means to practice and have a bit of fun.
