Elementary school: "Invasion from Mars." It was the dumbest thing I have ever written in my life. They made us participate in this novella contest and I came up with this crazy story about space invaders who were trying to take over the world. In the end they were defeated because they were allergic to mustard and the humans doused them in it. No idea where I came up with it, but I can laugh about it now. Fanfiction wise it was "More to Life," an Anakin/ Padme piece I wrote as a joke for a friend (I was in denial that I was a fanfiction writer). When I finally caved and admitted I was a fanfiction writer it was "The Emperor's Gift, The Emperor's Curse." That story has its problems, I've read it a couple times since writing it and I shake my head and laugh sometimes. However, despite its issues, I think it was a great concept and I am proud of it. I've been working on an original novel when life lets me, its slow going and I have a bit of writer's block from time to time, but I can honestly say without having played in the world of fanfiction I would have never dreamed of writing an original novel.
