Original Work and Fan Fiction

Today, I want to write about types of written works. You can write fan fiction that you are inspired to do after reading another book, or you can try your hands at coming up with something original. Both writing styles are legitimate, and various authors have had success with fan fiction and/or original works. There are differences between the two, which will be expanded on here. At the end of reading this, you should know something about the two writing styles.

Let’s  begin our learning exercise with fan fiction. This art form involves being inspired by another work, initially. Afterwards, certain aspects of the work are borrowed in your own piece. For example, Fifty Shades of Grey is a perfect example of fan fiction, and it was inspired by the Twilight series. The following article, on Buzzfeed, goes through some of the differences: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.buzzfeed.com/amphtml/jennaguillaume/fifty-shades-of-grey-vs-twilight

You probably know a lot on original works already. Original writing involves coming up with an idea, plot line and other things that are entirely your own. Take J.K. Risking’s Harry Potter series, for example. The world-famous author came up with the idea of writing Harry Potter while traveling by train. It is possible to trace to the writer. The ground-breaking success J.K. Rowling experienced is an inspiration to all people, including writers.
