College - as seen by one with no experience in it

Posted June 24th, 2020 at 01:37 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
It finally happened.

I have finally signed up for college.

I know that for most people, college is 'the thing' you do after high school. That's 'how it works': high school, four years or so of college, get a job, retire in however many years.

Coming from a self employed family and being homeschooled drilled such notions out of me early on. I realized that just doing 'the thing' that everyone else did was not what I wanted to do, especially when I saw people with mountains of student debt, stuck in a cubicle working a job they hated for the rest of their lives, breaking their backs trying to make their bosses rich.

I wasn't doing that. No way.

So I largely dismissed college for a very long time. It took me a long time to figure out that while what I had learned was valuable, I had gone off the deep end with it. College itself isn't bad; you just need to know what you're doing.

In terms of college,...

FFC #55 - Implosions

Posted June 20th, 2020 at 05:31 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #55

When I wrote the last FFC, Blood, my vampire story, had just imploded spectacularly. Uninterested at the time in redoing what I had just spent a month working on, I let my interest wander towards an HiS sequel idea.

That also imploded, though not to the extent that the idea is impossible.

But the implosion left my interest wandering, with no clear direction or story to latch onto. I was left to ponder what I really wanted to write, what was really causing me problem after problem.

So today I looked over my more recent failed stories, and tried to piece together what exactly had gone wrong so many times. Here's the list I came up with:
  • Isolated scene - The inspiration deals with a single scene or idea. Core parts are often missing, and when attempting to attach a buildup to get to the scene, those missing parts lead to incomplete characters and/or plots. Also, the inspiration

FFC #54 - Vampires, Update 2

Posted June 12th, 2020 at 01:53 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #54

So for those among you who avidly follow my signature, you might have noticed that the vampire tale, now tentatively titled Blood, is paused. Mentions of a 'character deviant' are made.

Deviants are what I call things which find their way into the development/story, but don't actually belong there. Like if I have an idea in my head about how a story can play out, but that idea really has nothing to do with how the story should play out, that idea is a deviant. I have to watch out for those things, because the further they get woven into the development/story, the bigger the chance I'll have to start completely over.

Well that's exactly what has happened: the basic idea for this vampire story has been floating around so long that it's accumulated a ton of ideas on exactly how it could play out. Some of those ideas stuck through the development, and unfortunately, they not only have nothing to do with...

"Springtime" Custom Competition - QC3 Needs QCP

Posted June 4th, 2020 at 03:48 AM by truth
Springtime Custom Competition!

The QC3 (Quarterly Custom Competition Center) needs your help! It seems we've been taken over by a different QC3 (quarantine currently cancelling celebrations) and are in desperate need of some relief, which seems most effective in the form of QCP (quite cute puppy-dogs).

Looking around Valhalla it seems like almost all the doggos are at least part robot and work for Utgar ... We aren't going to fix that first part, since robot fighting dogs are much more humane, but it's time for some cuddlier soulborg dog warriors. Head to the QC3HQ for more details and enter by June 17 for your chance to take this little rascal home!*

*I'm not going to mail you Buster. Paws off, tough guy.
