FFC #10 - Will I repost Dilmir?

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 10

Those following my FFC (Fan Fiction Chronicles), know that recently, I have been considering something I never thought I would: reposting Dilmir.

Following a major slump in interest for HiS, I took it upon myself yesterday to review the Dilmir trilogy. I wanted to see where it stood, and just how likely it was to be reposted. It took me two days to read all three books, and the results are in. How likely is it Dilmir will be reposted?

Not very.

There are a few small reasons, but I could work around those. The main reason is that the theme of all three books... well to be honest, I no longer agree with it.

Shortly after writing Dilmir, I started to figure a few things out. My thoughts on the theme completely reversed. It was right after the third book too, because I remember thinking how I could introduce a sequel with Dilmir as the main villain, and have him convinced of this new...

FFC #9 - A Brief Update

This entry will just be a quick update on where things stand, as some things have changed since the last entry.

The last thing I had said was that I had found a setting for TLFF, Dilmir was still looking to be a fan fiction, and I had an idea for my novels.

TLFF is right where I left it. The setting is still as strong as before, though to be fair, I haven't really tested it yet. But for the moment, it looks to be holding.

My novels have progressed some. I'm currently trying to define the theme properly between banging my head against HiS's plot. But it is coming along, and the setting still seems solid - what there is of it.

The biggest change is with Dilmir. Dilmir has the annoying theme which doesn't have enough interest to be of novel calibre, and yet is too important not to be in a novel.

So at the moment, I have reached a compromise with myself: I will continue with this new...

FFC #8 - Battle of the Infinite Series

It's very important to keep in mind that everything I say in these FFC's is subject to change, and that said change can happen very easily and without the slightest warning. Especially in this case.

Releasing details of something which is only in the earliest possible stages of conceptualization is inherently a bad idea, due precisely to the chance for it to change. That being said, I'm doing it anyway. Take it with a large grain of salt. You've been warned.

I recently mentioned how I had found the setting for my Dilmir series. I still have that, though it is slightly less stable than when I found it. Anything is possible when I develop the theme: it could solidify and be perfect, or it could fall apart completely. Time will tell.

I also mentioned how I didn't have a setting for TLFF - The Last Fan Fiction. Well... I have it now.

The theme from my last iteration of TLFF - By...

FFC #7 - (Possible) Return of the Elf

Here it is, another update from me. Now your day is complete.

In my last FFC, I talked about Dilmir, and how there was a slim chance I could rewrite it and release it here once more. Since I've said that, that chance has ballooned into a good possibility.

In FFC #6, I mentioned how the theme for Dilmir wasn't strong enough for an unending series of novels. Another part of the problem was that I simply could not find the right setting for it - a truly passive one. I had been trying to find the right setting for at least two years.

Conveniently enough, the moment I decided that Dilmir wasn't cut out to be a novel, I happened to find the perfect setting. No problems. No head banging. It was just... there, staring me in the face. It's so simple, so easily tested, that I know it works.

Now those of you who have followed me through the years might remember that I'm a Christian. Not...

FFC #6 - 'Under Consideration'

I don't know if anyone watches the progress of my fan fictions in my signature. It doesn't really matter, as it's more a place for me to congratulate myself on how much progress I'm making (or lack thereof) than anything else.

Point is, if anyone has been watching my sig, they might have noticed that for a few days it's been saying my future novels are 'under consideration'. I know you've been dying to find out what that means, so I'll explain.

For those of you who don't know, one of my first attempts at writing with actual development was a trilogy set on Feylund centered around a powerful elf named Dilmir. The trilogy is refered to as the Dilmir trilogy.

It was my first foray into actually writing with a structure, and the first time I ever really considered writing as something more than just a fun hobby. It might have been that mindset. It might have been something else. The end result was that...
