Sammy bitchfacin like a boss
Well, I'm about 3 weeks so into LJ, and never posted. And since I am not an author, well, I'm pretty sure no one will be interested LOL. But I have to start somewhere right?
So, a few things, if anyone sees this.
Any tips on beginner fic writing? I really want to do something, but I'm scared! I've never done it, and it's been years since I was in school and wrote poetry and such. I'm a huge Destiel girl, so that's where I want to start. Anyone have suggestions? Did you just jump in, or did you have help? If there's any sights, or even on here, that help you know how to start, I'd love to hear it.
Next: how do you insert gifs into your replies and such?
Next: Anyone have Destiel rec for profound bond, handprint, wink kink, first time stories? Any and all welcome.
Okay, that's all for now LOL! Anyone who sees this, is an author I've friended due to their awesome works. So thank you to ALL of you for being so awesome and inspiring. I have so much good head canon now!
In conclusion:; I feel the need to express
I am besotted with Castiel/Misha. Just sayin
:-)

LOL! There is MUCH about Castiel/Misha to be besotted with! ;)

As far as the fic writing... from personal experience... I just jump right in. Start with something you really love to read. For instance... I always LOVED stories about Dean having powers ... so I made a list in my head... what would my IDEAL story about Dean with powers contain? ... and that's what I wrote. When it's something that you really enjoying reading, it translates to something you really enjoy writing. Now... in my old fandoms, I would start small. Find comment fic meme's and drabble challenges and such to test the waters with.

My very first Supernatural fic ever was a 33k Big Bang. Clearly... I am insane. XD But it worked for me. You just need to find what works for YOU! :)

Wish I could help with the gifs questions, but I'm crap with that stuff. XD And when it comes to Destiel fics... I admit a preference for AU stories, and if you too enjoy that sort of thing ... go to swing_set13au and join that community. She has the EPIC masterlist to end all masterlists!! XD

Anywho... *wave* <3

Welcome to LJ! <3

I agree with bunnymaccool when it comes to writing, just jump right in. I don't think I've ever posted fic and not been a bundle of nerves about it xD I started writing fic a long while ago, and I think back when I started I was quite new to writing as a whole, I had a beta who helped me get better, and even now I still look at fic as a way of bettering my writing. Having people to bounce ideas off and to offer hand holding is also really good! (and I'm willing to help there if you like xD) So yeah, jump right in, write things that inspire you, things that you are comfortable writing, and have fun! :)

For gifs the code is
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<img src*>') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

I will likely have to go searching for fic that fits...it's been a wee while since I read Dean/Cas but I'm totally checking out swingset13's au list now ^__^

Castiel/Misha is the best sort of besotted-ness to have!

I'm about to confess an extremely shameful secret about how I started writing in this fandom. It's so awful and embarrassing, I can barely write it down. I had started daydreaming about meeting Sam and Dean on a road trip. And when I day dream, I day dream big. I'm a work at home mom with a special needs kid that uses up all my energy, and I figure, if I am going to escape (in my mind at least) then I deserve to go somewhere GOOD.

My beta helps me take those day dreams and turn them into a reasonable story. I am a big fan of just writing down WHATEVER, just to get words on the paper, and not worrying if it is good, bad or ugly. Then, I put on my armor and let my beta tell me what stinks and what needs to be cut or changed. We go through about 6 or 7 drafts before we are both happy.

I've noticed that people here are really supportive of new writers, and no matter what flavor you like, there will always be at least some people who like it too.

Good luck! I can't wait to cheer you on to post your first fic!!

:)

Oh dear, please stop right there! Shameful and embarassing?? no never!!! We are ALL here because we want to meet Sam n Dean, n Jaren n Jensen!! Fandom is all about love and support for me, where I can be me and sappy and perverted and whatever, with many others who understand!!! It's one big Supernatural Anonymous up in here gurl!
Really, thank you so very much for responding to me, and know that there is no judging. And you're damn right, escaping is supposed to be good and fun, so don't guilt yourself honey!
And again, this fic, this fic, I keep giggling in my head with all the images you gave me. Soooo fun!
;-p
