I'm so excited! *bouncy*
This morning I went to the "Creative Circle" I go to every second Monday, that meets at a cozy little local coffee shop not five minutes away from our house. Although the conversations are always interesting, and often inspiring, I run into the same brick wall I always run into while talking with other writers in "RL": they haven't a clue what fanfiction is. Usually, in addition to not knowing or caring much what fanfiction is, other writers I meet usually aren't much interested in fantasy, either--which happens to be my other, and inter-related, writing love. Needless to say, it's always disappointing to be unable to find a kindred spirit with which to chatter. *sniffle*
BUT... At this latest meeting, I actually met someone who introduced herself to the group as... *drum roll* ...a FANFICTION author! *faints from the shock of it* I've never met anyone in RL who actually writes fanfiction :D Imbecamiel and could scarcely contain ourselves until the meeting was over. Once it was, we got to chatter with our fellow fanfiction writer to our hearts' content...
In addition, I recently heard that one of the guys at our church is writing a fantasy novel of his own (he's a Tolkien and C.S. Lewis fan, so I can only imagine where he got his inspiration *g*). I have yet to interrogate him, but....one of these days I may actually have someone to chatter with over fantasy writing as well. *squee*
