think about these things when you’re making a fictional place; even a developed city has its roots in how easy it was to settle in the first place!

What are your thoughts on the idea that fanfiction is pointless/worthless/a waste of time/not worth pursuing/etc., specifically in regards to longer (even novel-length) work? /definitely not asking because I'm debating whether or not to invest my time in a really long fanfic and people keep telling me to focus on "original" work

wordcubed:

betterbemeta:

As it so happens, I have a lot of feelings about this topic! 

Without fanfiction, I would never have discovered writing, practiced writing, thought hard about media and my relationship with it, discovered an interest in media, reporting, journalism, and fiction’s intersection with it, or even graduated from college with a major in journalism!

If it makes you happy, then do it. That’s my most basic advice. If it makes you happy, even if no one is listening, do it. It is always worthwhile to explore what you are passionate about in new ways. If other people also enjoy it, then that is a whole new realm of performance and nuance that you then open yourself to.

The reason why people often make the argument that fanfiction and fanworks are a waste of time is that it is difficult to capitalize on them. And in our current world, there is a prevailing theme of that if you cannot make money off of it, or if you cannot put it on your resume, then it is a waste of time and investment and it amounts to nothing. This is a complete farce and a piece of capitalistic doo-doo also aimed at artists, writers of even original fiction, critics, and craftspeople who do not sell their work: that the movement of culture and talking back to our media and environment in its own language is a waste of time if it doesn’t somehow extract money from a system.

In fact, the recent uproar of Fifty Shades of Gray and its origin as a Twilight fanfic comes solely from the fact that it was namewashed and now makes money. If it did not make money, it wouldn’t be notable in our culture at all. But that it somehow extracted the $$$, that’s what our media finds so shocking about it. Even before the rapey bad BDSM stuff. Even before the questionable writing. Even before the sex material. It’s the fact that it’s making money and our culture has no choice but to find it (to its horror!) legitimate.

But this should not be the case. Your passions are your own. They are not defined as successful/not successful based on the revenue or lack thereof they rake in.

The people telling you to focus on “original work” do so, likely in the idea that it’s not possible to gain fame or notoriety or “legitimacy” if you can’t copyright and sell your work. But if that’s not what you want, then who cares? Are those things really what makes something worthwhile? That’s your conclusion to draw. And even original writers get the same speech! “Why are you writing fantasy/sci-fi? Write YA Lit, that sells better nowadays.” “Why are you writing YA-lit, it’s a slum of teenage girls, go write realistic fiction.” “Why are you writing realistic fiction? Just go write creative nonfiction.” “Why are you writing creative nonfiction? Just go be a journalist.” “Why are you a journalist? Your job will be replaced by robots soon.”

Fanfiction is a tradition of long and respectable pedigree, from the fanzines of my mother’s era, to the formation of ancient fandoms and reproductive/knock-off fanworks, to the oral tradition upon which most of our contemporary capitalist media IP exchange is so removed from today. I highly recommend Fan Fiction and Fan Communities in the Age of the Internet if you want to learn more in a scholarly sense about the community, value, and perhaps descent of modern/contemporary fanwork and media, but it’s fascinating and entirely legitimate.

Destroy the idea that for something to be worthwhile, money and ownership has to be the first priority. From fanfic, your own personal goals and interests can become more clear and I promise you, that first shitty novel of yours someday will be less shitty if you learn the basics and conventions that make for a successful story before some sad editor sees it. (And I would be a very sad editor if my first fanworks still existed and I had to behold them.)
