Moki’s Adventures at Comic-Con 2012
As another July comes to an end, so does another year at Comic-Con 2012. This one was my busiest yet and I did interviews in no less than ten press rooms including Supernatural, Glee, Bones, Falling Skies and Arrow, as well as attended and covered six additional panels for shows like Once Upon a Time, Warehouse 13 and Futurama.
As I ran from press room to press room and panel to panel, I couldn’t help but to think about how far my life has come in just a few years and how interesting it was to be meeting some of the people I’ve written about for so long (not just in fanfiction, but in my other articles/reviews as well). It’s amazing what a difference a few years can make and it’s hard to believe that not so long ago I attended Comic-Con as a very happy visitor who had no idea what was going on behind the scenes.
If you’d like to read all about it, please check out My Adventure at Comic-Con article posted at my personal website. In it you’ll find links to every video interview I did at the convention, plus all articles I wrote from the panels I attended. I’m also going through all the pictures I took at the event and will have them posted on my site shorts.

I came across another fanfiction article in my search for fanfic news, this time on Cracked.com. But this was one that made me want to tear my hair out and scream.
Now I just want to say up front that I do understand that the reason there are stereotypes about fanfiction readers and writers is due to the fact that a great many people fit them. But to pigeonhole one group based on a few examples is just plain silly and I simply can’t stand it any more. Reading this author’s article I see nothing but hatred and derision for something that has literally changed my life. Wanna know just how much it changed my life? Check out my article – How Writing Fanfiction Prepared Me to be a Freelance Writer.
When I see articles like these, it makes me want to stand on a rooftop and scream at people that not all fanfic writers are terrible and even if some are, so what? There are terrible songwriters out there, does that mean we make fun of the entire music industry in general? Of course not. Besides, people have to be terrible before they can learn how to better their craft.
I invite you all to take a look at this Cracked article and let me know what you think. Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one fighting for the fanfiction cause and it’d be nice to know there were others out there who felt like me, who aren’t willing to just shrug their shoulders and let the world look down on them for no reason other than ignorance.
