So, yesterday I wrote about feeling insignificant and unmemorable.
And then I got an email from fanfiction.net.
Once upon a time, before I ever started a blog or took writing seriously, I wrote a handful of fanfiction pieces. Sometimes on my own, sometimes in collaboration with a good friend. We had a small website to publish them, but also put them up on general fanfiction sites like fanfiction.net.
It's been years since I even thought about those pieces, really. But they're still posted. Yesterday someone found one and added it to their favorites, so the system sent me an email to tell me.
I wrote a short, fun story years ago, totally forgot about it, never publicized it, and today it's reaching someone.
If I make a point of writing, and connecting with people, and pushing work out into the world, how can I think that won't mean anything?
