Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Julia AT Weaver Flowers:
How would you feel about people writing fan fiction based on your stories?
It’s a great question. Writer reactions to fan fic have been all across the board, from happy praise to… well, let’s just say there are some things you should NEVER say to your fans.
But beyond public reactions, there’s the private one.
So if you suddenly discovered that others had taken your world and written their own take on it (not for profit, of course), how would you feel? Flattered? Upset? Mildly confused?
