Here are my 7 tips to writing fanfiction.

Finals Week Must Haves!

With finals week fast approaching (or already approached, in the case of myself), students are stressed and/or stressing about getting that final exam nailed and out of the way. For most, its about 75% or more of their final grade and can impact if they get the A or get stuck in the B range, like myself.
