What do you think? I'm a Gent Crow cruisin. I'm a literature nerd, a Harry Potter fan, a Harry Potter fanfiction writer (at least in progress) and somewhere in my soul I have a literature teacher. Yes, that kind. I search for meaning in fiction.

Check out my essay series on writing advice, fanfiction and fanfiction trope analysis here and on tumblr, under gentcrowcruisin [dot] tumblr [dot] com

Check out my fanfiction profile too on www [dot] fanfiction [dot] net [slash] u [slash] 8290091

(This website is ridiculous in its approach towards links...)

I hope it's not completely useless. Enjoy!

Advice and nitpickings from a literature nerd
Well-meaning (not necessarily good, but probably not awful either) writing advice for writers of fanfiction and original fiction. Also, fanfiction trope analysis and closer examination of works of fanfiction. Occasional sarcasm on board. Give it a try, you might take something away.
