I write fanfiction under the name of LoweFantasy. If you’re interested in any stories from The Legend of Zelda or the animes Ghost Hunt, Beyblade, and Yugioh, I’ve got a few you might like to read. ^.^ Please take the time to let you know what you think so I can learn how to be a better writer!
But as to why I write fanfiction: it’s excellent practice. It’s also stinking fun, because I get to be silly, and a great way to come up with rough drafts for story ideas. It’s also an amazing way to get feedback on just what kind of people my audience is.
