LOS ANGELES — “Do you want to dance?”
As I stood among the crowded booths of video game displays at E3 in the Los Angeles Convention Center, I felt a bit reluctant. It was my first day of E3 2015, and my first E3 in general. I was a fish out of water; I felt awkward, exposed, out of place and hyperaware of the fact that I was not male.

Never forget March 25, 2015, the day Zayn Malik broke the hearts of about a billion One Direction fans and parted ways with the band. Let’s not forget this breakup and the thousands of niche fan fiction writers, either, who took the experience and turned it into a creative outlet.
Fan fiction gets a bad rap because, on the surface, it looks obsessive and creepy. Even the most popular and mainstream fan fiction, such as Fifty Shades of Grey, receives mixed reviews because of its oversexualizat...
Anna Todd went from writing fan fiction on her phone to being a published author touring the country after she began posting her stories about Harry Styles on Wattpad. Fangirl talked with Anna about the transition and some of the challenges she faced along the way.
What were the differences between writing After on Wattpad and writing now that you have a publishing deal?
