I'm fairly new to the Fan Fiction world, and I was wondering, do RL events inspire what you write? Do things that happen to you or friends occur in a similar fashon to the SW characters, whether it's AU or Inter-movie? Or is your fan fiction world a totally seperate place? Do you simply make bad things happen to them when they happen to you, or is it very detailed? (eg: You or a friend gets into a car wreck, and suddenly Anakin crashes his speeder in your fic) For instance: This was posted in the "You know you're a Fan Fiction Writer When..." Thread, and of course, I had to read further into it. So, anyone have any examples to share? And what about mood? Does that affect your writing, or what you write? Or, is it like I mentioned before, and you live and write in two different worlds? I'd love to see opinions on either one.
