Long time no chat, I will be getting back to submitting stuff ASAP but before that... I have a question for you all.
Now this is for a writing project I am planning at the moment. I'm not going to say what the concept is at the moment and it probably won't end up here on DA because I am wanting to treat it as a serious project and even possibly get in published in the future. One thing I can tell you is that I'd like to use the ideas of fangirls and fanboys for my main characters.
So I will finally get to this question I keep mentioning before you all shoot me through the screen for wasting your time... although you might do that anyway as there are actually three questions I want to ask (sorry).
1) What qualities or interests do you feel defines you as a fan and what do you enjoy about being one?
2) What automatically comes to your mind when you think about the terms fangirl, fanboy and fan community?
3) What, if any, do you think are the problems with being a fan? (no finger pointing or name dropping please, just say what you think the problems can be).
If you guys can answer these questions as honestly as possible, I will read every response so don't feel like you are writing too much or not enough, just say what you think when you look at these questions.
Thank you in advance, any answers I get will be a huge help
