FFC#16 - FINISHED - The Cover for Horizon in Sight

Posted July 6th, 2018 at 02:17 AM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
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 #15 - An Update on HiS (Part 1)

Posted July 2nd, 2018 at 02:15 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 15

Bigga has finished reviewing the first part of HiS, and I have just finished going over his thoughts and edits. I wanted to give you an update on where things stand in terms of the release date and format.

It looks like I won't be releasing part one until I'm done with the whole thing. At least not until I'm done with part two. I know with the whole thing in front of him, Bigga will probably have some final thoughts on the fan fiction as a whole, and there might be some things I want to change.

The release date is (as seems to be the norm with my fan fictions) getting pushed back. I currently have it at mid-August, but that is probably a best-case scenario date. Again, it all depends on how disciplined I am with sticking to the writing and proofreading.

For the next few days I'll be tweaking part one to deal with some issues Bigga found. I need to add in some information which was missing....

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...

FFC #12 - The Coming of Dan

It's been awhile since my last update. Surprisingly, not much has changed, but I still wanted to let you all know where I was.

Horizon in Sight has progressed nicely, and is nearly finished. The development, that is. The writing comes later. I have one last subplot I need to plug into the outline, then I need to smooth the outline out with transitions and such, and we'll be ready to start the writing. A very rough estimate would put the release date somewhere around July.

Writing will be temporarily disrupted from now until May 9, as I do several things I have never done before in my life: get on a plane, and visit the east coast. I'll be flying down to South Carolina, then heading to Florida, for two weeks. It's highly unlikely much writing will get done, though I might be able to do a bit on the plane (if they still allow that sort of thing...).

The 'specs' for HiS are a single fan fiction,...
