Last week I posted my review of the book Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, a book in which the main theme is fan fiction and fan culture – something which, over the years, has been a big hobby of mine. A few years ago I used to spend quite a big portion of my free time reading and writing fan fiction – but for the past couple of years I haven’t touched it. I haven’t read it, written anything or even logged in to my accounts. I don’t really know why; either I haven’t had time, or I just haven’t felt involved enough in fandoms to want to write or read fan fiction.
However in the past couple of weeks I’ve really started to get back into it again, and I’m beginning to rekindle my love for it! So, this week I wanted to explore fan fiction and why people enjoy writing and reading it.
