    ...you put off posting more chapters until you've written the next three...or more. :p
    ...you are stuck at a community function without a way to write, come up with an idea for half a chapter, and wind up repeating several sentences in your head so you won't forget them. [face_nail_biting]That was me in church today. :eek: Wound up missing half the sermon. :oops:
    ...then you let someone else drive home so you can expel said sentences into your tablet.

    When you have tons of different notebooks, and can never remember which story is in which, so just bring all three with you.

    Of course. You ever see the French notebooks with the lines up and down and across and like little lines in the middle? I'm really into those right now...

    See? That fact that we're discussing this proves we're all fanfiction writers.

    ...when you went to Paris, of all places, and as amazing as it was, you just couldn't wait to get back to the hotel and write... when that's all you did on the 2-hour train ride

    ...when you post in this thread so much you are starting to worry that everyone here hates you....

    The muse shows wisdom. A long time ago, I would have said "fanfiction regarding a popular culture phenomenon as college material?" but then I learned of theses written on the Andy Griffith classic TV show, and a college course in it. So go for it! It couldn't hurt to ask for the instructor's input.:)
