OTW Guest Post: Malory Beazley
"I’ve been most inspired by the compassion and generosity of fan creators. I’ve read incredible fics that have shifted my view on what makes great storytelling and inspired me to be a better writer. I’ve seen fan art that has moved me on a profound level and ignited my creative spark. I’ve watched fan films and theatrical productions that remind me that joy is the best motivator, not “shoulds” or “oughts.” "

Malory Beazley discusses FAN/FIC Magazine plans, her fanfic trilogy, and the tag whose growth she’s followed at AO3: http://goo.gl/nMaFff
