TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 20

After a day of furious writing, I have completed HiS. This isn't just another fan fiction. This is a big milestone for me, as it is the longest thing, fan fiction or otherwise, which I have ever written.

It weighs in at 219 pages, 119,364 words, and 59 chapters. At long last, I am approaching novel standards. It was the subplots which contributed to the bulk.

Immediate thoughts after writing it: optimistic. I doubt I can ever top Red, but HiS should definitely be up there with the better things I've written. There's certainly some things I need to work on, which I'll address in TLFF, but I feel that HiS is a big improvement over my last fan fiction, ACoS.

Some of the improvements I'm looking forward to sharing in HiS include the dialogue, developed subcharacters, and realistic character reactions to each other. I tried to work a lot on that, since I was feeling that a lot of the dialogue and character-to-character relations up until now have been stilted or based on cliches.

Once I go through it and work out some edits, it will be Bigga's turn to proofread and offer his opinions. He's already gone through part of it, so hopefully it won't take too long. After that, the posting will begin!

I'll keep you updated.
