Writing Exercise #4- Fan Fiction

Filed under: Writing Exercises — Tags: — ax20 @ 12:49 pm

Ever watch something or read something and think you could have done it better? Made it more exciting? Finished with a better ending? Don’t just think you could have done it, do it.

Try rewriting a story/movie/tv show with your own unique take. If you’ve ever seen Wicked on Broadway (I say seen because in my opinion the book left something to be desired), you know that retellings can be really interesting and popular.

Some things you might discover in your retelling:
1- it turns out the author knew what they were doing
2- you might have the newest bestseller on your hands
3- nothing important other than it’s fun to relive your favorite characters, there’s a reason there’s so much fan fiction on the web
