Just read an awesome book by an author named Marissa Meyer (the book is called "Cinder"). I'll post a detailed review later but I just wanted to post my absolute delight in finding out that she was a fanfic author first - on Livejournal no less - and then starting writing original work. Now, she's a NYT bestselling author. 

On her LJ blog, I came across this link she posted about fanfic authors. I have to say I'm utterly bemused to see that Jasper Fforde would look down on fanfiction when his entire Thursday Next series is BASED on the idea that there are no original stories and that everything is a copy of everything else. And even his seris is essentially a meta way of looking at fanfiction - the premise is that people can go into well known classics and change things around. What is that? META FANFIC. 

For those who want to check it out...
