Writing Fan Fiction Again

I used to write a great deal of fan fiction, but I've been neglecting it lately.   Now, however, I've gotten back to work on it.  I'd had forgotten how much fun, and how challenging,  it is to write stories based on other people's work, to adjust things while still respecting the original canon.
That is why I prefer doing fill-ins and continuations, or, sometimes, telling the story from a different character's viewpoint.
I am on fanfiction.net; my username there is ProLiferChelle.

I'm currently writing a continuing  Another World fanfic.  That show had a very important impact on my life.  Through one of its characters,  I was  brought back to the Church.

I've also just published a story based on Beverly Cleary's "Ramona" books.
