My name is BlackJack16; I am from Australia; and I have always been a huge fan of TLK. It is probably my favourite animated film out of all others that I like. I cannot stop watching animated films, because I love the humor and the entertainment and the quality of animation. At the same time I have always been a huge fan of story writing. It became a hoby of mine when I was only 8 years old back in 1995, and since then I have learned more and more about what makes a good story; as well as what it takes to stick to the moral of the story.
Ever since joining this site, I have been given the opportunity to put my writing skills into practice. I mainly learned how to write from my mother, because she is a journalist; and I guess that I inherited her writing genes. I was also taught by her and university subjects about grammar, spelling and proof-reading. I eventually learned how to do all of this myself; and after so much typing of essays and reports at university, I want to put it all into practice. Fan fiction is perfect for me as I love animation and I can make up my own stories while at the same time enjoying time on a favourite website. This might sound ironic, but I might just add that although I love writing, I have never been a great reader; so it is pretty hard to learn how to write well if you don't do much reading! However, since I love Lion King, some of the fanfics on the site have made for interesting reading; and so I have paid close attention to the writing styles of the author's and the detail that they include. This has certainly given me more lessons in story writing.
This site gives me a great opportunity to put my hobby of story-writing into practice; and I only hope that one day I can make a living out of this. I know that it takes a lot to write a good story; including loads of research into the subjects related to the stories and the theme or list of themes within a story to make it for good reading. I will never be as good as other famous novelists such as Charles Dickens, Bryce Courtney, or Dan Brown; but I still want to write stories that will make for interesting reading. I hope that they appeal to all you viewers out there.
