Ask me one question - any one - about my writing, then post this in your LJ so I can satisfy my curiosity about yours...

I discovered fic (and the TS, XF, and BTVS fandoms) through Touched By An Angel. No, really! :-)

But, like many, I did some fic writing before I knew what it was (a novel set in the Trek universe, with original characters). Basically, I just accepted the fact that I had ideas for stories in other authors' universes as part of my normal writerly makeup, like playing 'orcs and hobbits' instead of 'cops and robbers,' or wanting to write "The Lay of Arwen and Aragorn" when I was about 12 (gosh, I'd almost forgotten about that).

Also, I was disatisfied with some of my original ideas (I really don't do fantasy well, which makes me sad). So I just went with the stories I knew I could write, which were fic. And in the craziness of university, I had little time to write, so fic was easier, and that's when I really started doing it.

Now, it's something I just enjoy, and a delightful respite from the struggle to write something cool and yet commercial (in screenplay format, no less, which is kinda constricting).
