FFC #46 - There goes that plan...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #46

In case you missed it, I have finished the first of the prequels to Eternity. Utgar is live, and can be viewed at your pleasure.

With Utgar finished, I turned my attention to the next fan fiction in line, which continued the prequels: Einar. It was then that some problems arose.

You can probably guess what the plan was here. Originally, the prequels were going to follow each of the five original Valkyrie as they rose to power. While working on Utgar though, I came to realize that I had no story for Vydar or Ullar, and was only including them because they were one of the five Valkyrie. Including material for no reason is a sure way to fail, so I cut the number of short prequels from five to three, leaving Utgar, Einar, and Jandar. Utgar was already well on the way, and I had a good idea for what I wanted with Einar and Jandar.

Like I said, some problems occurred. Before I get to that...

FFC #45 - And then there was a slight delay...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #45

It's me, and I'm back with another update. Let the rejoicing begin.

So, obviously, I have not yet posted Utgar, the first of the three short prequels to Eternity. The reason is that I wasn't happy with the private stakes. While I think I (for once) actually have the stakes I need, they weren't being shown well enough. I didn't feel like their weight was conveyed hardly at all, and the set up before they were threatened was virtually non-existent.

So I've done some pondering on the matter, and come up with some ideas which will, I hope, fix the problems. I am most likely looking at a rewrite of the first few chapters, and possible tweakings of references throughout the rest of the story. SO editing will probably take a bit longer than I originally anticipated.

Meanwhile, the character arc for the second story is in place and outlined (haven't paired it with the 3-act structure yet)....

*TGRF enters with maniacal laughter*

I HAVE THE POWER!!!

...

In my last FFC, I mentioned how everything was seeming to come together for me, and my study of the 3-act structure had started to solve a lot of problems I had been plagued with for years. I was sure it was just a temporary thing, and I would start having problems again soon.

Usually I'll outline a fan fiction easily, but once I get down to the details of how exactly things unfold, and how characters reach the decisions they do, things tend to fall apart, and I can spend weeks at a time stuck, unable to get characters to make the decisions they must. I was sure that would happen with the Prequels.

But it didn't. The 3-act structure has prevailed. I can't believe I haven't used this thing until now.

Point is, I have just today finished writing the first of the three Prequels...
