First of all, as a writer I’m honoured that readers find my fantasy series so compelling that they want to delve further into them and do this by writing fan fic.
I don’t mind if someone wants to write stories set in my world with my characters. But …
- Obviously, you can’t sell stories you’ve written using my characters and world. (That would be a breach of copyright and annoy my publishers no end).
- Please don’t tell me anything about the stories you write and I can’t read fan fic. I don’t want anyone to think that I have ‘stolen’ their ideas.
Of course, if you want to be a published author in your own right then you need to be writing original stories about your own characters set in your own worlds.
I have a long list of useful articles. Look in the right column under ROR Writing Group, Writing Craft.
There is something intrinsically satisfying about building a world and exploring it through characters. I wish you all the best with your writing.
