Discover Seven new writers in the FA Directory
We have a lot to be excited about here at the Directory, not only are we just over a month old and happily thriving with your appreciation, we’ve welcomed seven(!) new members into the Directory since the launch at the end of April. Please join us in welcoming to the FA Directory:
It would be greatly appreciated by all these writers if you leave a comment on their profile page in recognition of their work or just in acknowledgment of the joy of discovering a new writer. Special thanks to Alison A. for helping us find another retired writer (*).
When a story has an ending!
There’s more to be excited about, as far as we’re concerned… Writers know this feeling well; suddenly there it is, that final dot that denotes the end. Relief floods the system but then the remorse sets in, and a pang of pain hits with the knowledge that you are saying goodbye to some well-loved characters that have been ‘living’ inside you for months, if not years, and because of that, we as writers sometimes forget to celebrate that moment.
It is a wonderful achievement for a writer to make it to the end of their tale. We at the Directory feel the completion of a multi-chapter story is something definitely worth recognizing and to alert the fandom about, especially to readers who may have shied away from starting a new work-in-progress after coming away heartbroken one too many times when a story they loved went on an indefinite hiatus… Unfinished stories are part of life when reading fan fiction but it can also be a little frustrating… So here’s to all these (happy) endings!
Stories completed from March 31st – May 31st:
