Whatís the story behind your username?
Hmm. I think that it probably dates to a free McDonalds MMO that I played after school back in the 3rd grade (my mother was a librarian at my elementary school, so I would often be stuck using school-approved websites for entertainment). I canít really remember the game that well, but my character was probably some sort of an astronaut. I quickly moved on to a different space-themed game called

FFC #49 - BOOM - We're back in business

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #49

Back in early January, I wrote an FFC about how I had discovered the 3-act-structure, and everything was coming together. Confusion was gone, knowledge was mine, and things were far simpler than they had ever been. I outlining stories faster than I had ever done so, and for the first time was able to break down simple stories into their structural parts.

That's what is known as the second half of the second act. The second half is characterized by victories. The main character, having learned the pivotal truth, goes after the main conflict with command and confidence, and wins many victories.

When I wrote that FFC, I was worried about only one thing:

Quote:
I'm a little worried, because the 3-act structure says that following those victories will be the deepest and darkest failure yet, but... we'll consider that later.
Well, sure enough, that darkest moment came. My writing...

The Extended Year

"What are you selling?"
-RE4 Merchant


These last few weeks have done their best to leave a foul taste in my mouth. My job closed up, resulting in mass layoff in my family. We knew it was coming, just didn't know when. Business had picked up since the last blog posting, but the customers weren't paying. The EPA has been hounding the company, probably because develops want the building gone so they can build a parking lot for their extremely overpriced condos.


I had spent the weeks following job hunting.


Then, on Sunday, my dad had to go to the emergency room. The doctors had said he had suffered from mini strokes, brought on by his blood pressure skyrocketing. There had been a little brain damage, and he's developed a kidney disease as well. At least we didn't lose him.


He got released from the hospital today. Apparently he went to go lay down; he's probably glad to be in his own bed.

FFC #48 - Going down....

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #48

There hasn't been much going on in terms of writing over the past few days. Aside from Utgar, there hasn't really been much appreciable progress at all since HiS finished up. I've hinted at this before, but I think it's time I address the problem head on:

Something is keeping me from writing Eternity, and I don't really know what it is.

I have plenty of ideas about things to write, about ways to start Eternity. These are all good ideas, but they never work out. There is always some problem which keeps them from being written. Sometimes I get as far as the outline and maybe even start writing it, but as I do, I just don't feel like I'm doing it right. Interest fades, and I turn to other ideas. Nothing is sticking, and I don't know why.

I've more or less mentioned this issue in the most recent updates, and I've presented theories on what's happening. But, like my writing, those theories...
