Another edition of Ask The Fangirl where this time we tackle a few different questions and a variety of topics, including the wives, BSB Vegas, fan fiction and other drama for your llamas.
This may the best thing I’ve ever seen besides when Backstreet Boys talked about reading fan fiction. We have Claire and Jamie on a fluffy bead reading the fan fiction of an Outlander fan – about their characters. Unfortunately, I can’t post the video here. Check it out over at Harper’s Bazaar.
Yes, the title of this post says it all. Could my writer’s block be gone? Or at least a little?
Hey everybody! So it’s been a crazy year, I mean, really.
Note: This is the first edition of #AskTheFangirl, a post that I’m going to make once a week where I answer fans questions about anything and everything when it comes to being a fangirl (or in some cases, fanboys). There will be a form at the end of the post if you have a question.
So when I was 19 in ’99 (thanks, Nick), I started writing fan fiction. It led me to my career in journalism and to being an award-winning journalist. Flash forward to 2017. I don’t write anymore and I haven’t written solidly in about two years. My site is gone (although the URL will point here) […]

There comes a point in every fangirl who writes fan fiction’s life when she realizes that the magic is over – writer’s block has won. For me, I haven’t written substantially in almost two years for the most part. I’ve tried off and on for a while. I will start a new story and something […]
People think being a fan fiction writer is easy. You think up a scenario with your “favorite” person and write about it. Or they think it’s all dirty Skinamax-type stories with no real substance.
