FFC #47 - Everything is perfectly fine

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #47

My last update essentially boiled down to me saying I had no idea what I would be writing next. If you've followed my signature, you know that I eventually decided on writing Jandar. Now... I'm not so sure.

Everything is perfectly fine with Jandar. There were only minor problems during development. It's actually the fastest story I've ever created, and I'm already a few chapters in.

BUT... the interest is flagging.

In my last update, I mentioned how I need inspiration to carry me from start to finish with my stories. I don't think I was 100% right about that. I'm perfectly capable of just thinking something up and writing it without any moment of brilliant inspiration. And I think I know why.

When asked if he used a notebook, Stephen King once replied that he thought a notebook was the best way in the world to keep track of bad ideas. I think some of the assumptions...

FFC #46 - There goes that plan...

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...
