I've seen people asking about writing fictions with pre-existing characters that we hardly know about, questionning themselves which personality should I give him/her? What background does he/she have? Where do they come from, etc.. Well (after a couple of unpublished attempts) I'm about to write a story taking place before the saga, with original characters: it would be easier for psychological reasonning, making up interesting situations not affecting the SW timeline and context. Not forgetting that it's a fan fiction, it's also cool being free to create your own little plots inside that huge universe. Maybe it wouldn't appeal to a lot of people since everyone here has favorite SW characters, and want to read fictions with some of them in it... I haven't read a lot of the fictions posted by our fellows on these boards, so I might be writing either something awesome, or a huge pile of crap that nobody would understand. So anyone has suggestions, experience to share with this type of fanfix writing?
