FFC #18 - TLFF, Iteration 8

I'm currently going through the outline for part two of HiS, looking for weak transitions. Good thing too, because I'm finding a lot. While I've been fixing those however, TLFF (or The Last Fan Fiction) has slowly been resolving itself into a more defined shape in the back of my head.

For those of you who don't know, TLFF is the fan fiction I plan on writing after HiS. It will be my last fan fiction, although I intend to make it so that it contains several installments, and can be added to at will.

When last I mentioned TLFF, I made the grievous error of relating exactly what I thought it would be about. Clearly, I have not learned that my plans change faster than our cat running away from strangers.

For that reason, I am not going to tell you exactly what new form TLFF has taken. It isn't too different, as it still bears the title By Any Other Path, but the setting has been stabilized and the plot opened up wider.

While I won't tell...

FFC #17 - An Update on HiS (Part 1.2)

Posted July 22nd, 2018 at 09:21 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
Well, the editing of part one took a lot longer than I thought it would. There were a few scenes which needed some heavy revision, and it took awhile to nail down exactly what needed to change and in what way. So that took some time.

I've finished the editing of part one however, and now I'm moving on to part two. As I've said before, Dan does get summoned in this tale, and I'm currently working on the transition period. It was a bit shaky in the outline, and Bigga had some thoughts on how I could improve it, so I'm working those in. If I stick with it, it shouldn't take more than a few days. After that I'll give the outline a once over to see if I need to tighten anything else up in light of Bigga's comments, and then it's on to the writing.

Some of the suggestions on part one yielded visual-dictionary-esque (or VDE) content for HiS, as information was needed on a few things and there was no good place to incorporate it. So there are a few additions to HiS,...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 16

After much deliberation and several versions, I have finally settled on a cover for HiS which I like. My experimentation with 3D covers continues. Feel free to let me know your thoughts/speculations. Enjoy!

FFC #14 - The Development for HiS is COMPLETED!

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 14

A few short minutes ago, I finished putting the final touches on the outline to Horizon in Sight, otherwise known as 'Dan's Tale'. Writing will begin within a few days. The 'specs' for HiS, as well as the writing progress once I begin, can be located in my sig.

I've spoken with Bigga, and we've agreed to write and proofread each of the three sections of HiS one at a time. This means I could start releasing the first section while the second is being written, meaning potentially a much closer release date. I'm not making any promises though. I want to hear Bigga's thoughts on the first section before I decide to release it. I might just wait until the whole thing is written like I normally do. Time will tell.

In the meantime, for those of you who have read The Quest for Valhalla, it is very important that you do not spoil anything. The Quest and HiS are vastly different. However, HiS is based on the premise...

FFC #13 - The Improvements in HiS

Posted May 17th, 2018 at 03:00 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 13

Anyone who's been following my fan fictions probably knows that I try to use each one to get progressively better at writing. Ever since Dilmir, I've been narrowing down on specific aspects of my writing in each fan fiction, trying to improve them.

Horizon in Sight is, at the moment, the final fan fiction to do that. (Knowing how things go, there will probably be some issue Bigga finds with it which I will then want to correct with another fan fiction, but we aren't there yet.) I figured now that the development is nearly complete (just smoothing the outline out), I can tell you all what improvements you can expect in HiS.

My last fan fiction, A Chance of Success, was... well, I won't say it was bad. I wouldn't say it was overly good though, either. It was just kind of there.

The main thing I tried to improve on in ACoS was twists. Unfortunately, I didn't quite know how. Instead of creating...
