Bio:
I stumbled across this site and had never heard of "fan fiction" before. I am a writer who is currently working on honing my craft. I am very interested in things like "show don't tell" and syntax and sentence structure as ways of creating mood and pacing. I'm curious about these technical areas of writing because my background is in non-fiction writing (I was a Philosophy major). I have always written, but am now at a point in the revision process of my own work where I want (need) to ask, on a deeper level, "How do you show, not tell, a story?" This website has some amazing writing and an opportunity to interact with other writers and editors with a subject matter (Harry Potter) that I have loved for years now. I am amazed at the quality and complexity of a lot of the work on this site.
