Writing fiction

Q: I am a 3rd year MBBS student and I really like reading fiction stories and sometimes I write fiction. I find it useful as it helps me improve my English. Reading stories is my hobby and I like it very much.

Is it haram to write fiction/madeup stories? Is it haram to write stories at all? 

A: Try and avoid this.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
