FFC #65 - An Update

Posted January 5th, 2021 at 03:09 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #65

In my last FFC, I explained how I needed to change my thinking from always focusing on 'the next fan fiction'. I realized that I needed to switch my focus to where my interest lay - and my interest isn't always on writing.

So I've done that. I've told myself that if I get an idea for a story, and the idea sticks around, I'll look into writing it. But if I don't, then I won't try to force things. As a result, I've been paying attention to where my interest currently is: developing games (don't expect anything to come of this; it's merely a creative outlet so far).

Now, while my interest is not on writing, my thoughts do turn there every now and then. And recently, I've been taking a look at my writing as a whole, and what I need to work on.

In my last FFC, I said I was going to finish up Valkyrie and post it. Now, I'd say there's a 90% chance that will NOT happen.

C3G Interview - LordVenoc & MrNobody

C3G Interview
LordVenoc & MrNobody
Author: Tornado & C3G

Not since the days of Arkham and Ronin has a duo come in and made such an impact on C3G. These two guys quickly rose through the ranks to become Heroes and intoduced us all to the worlds of Doctor Who and Valiant. It is a pleasure and an honor to present my first double interview with LordVenoc and MrNobody.

[Scapemage] What was your first C3G design? Which design has been your favorite? Is there anything you consider to be really big on your bucket list still?

MrN: My first design was the Dalek Drones, which Im still pretty proud of. Out of all my designs, which is my favorite? Hmmm ... might have to go with Mon-El. I originally started out with a pretty basic design that had Freeze Breath, but Spidey came in with this really cool Inspiration idea that just

FFC #64 - Actions versus words

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #64

This is another of those entries I don't really want to write. I'm having serious second thoughts even now. But I think it needs to be said.

----

I've found that I can say I believe one thing, and then act as though I believe the opposite. I doubt I'm alone in this - just look at politics.

Jokes aside, for the past ten years I've believed that writing was 'my thing'. Eventually, I would write a bestseller and be 'made'. For five years, that belief has been true. Writing is what I was meant to be doing.

But around the end of those five years, something changed. I finished writing The River that was Red, a story I still consider to be my best work. Upon completion, I cast about within my mind for the next story.

You see, up until that point, there had always been a 'next story'. I didn't even have to come up with them. The concepts were just sitting...

FFC #63 - Concerning an overabundance of lumber

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry # 63

I've had to temporarily pause the writing of Valkyrie. Don't worry; nothing major has happened, and I don't need to do any major reworks of the plot or anything. The story was missing a component which I should be able to add in with only minimal tweaks to the outline. It will, however, take me a few days to add in said component.

So what's the component? Emotion. Reaction. Feeling. Basically, the bit of the story I've written appears to center on lifeless pieces of wood.

Here's why: I've detailed elsewhere how I learned writing backwards, starting with what already-published authors get wrong, and only now arriving at the basics. Well, it appears that that has applied to all aspects of writing, not just character arcs and plot.

One thing it seems I don't know how to do (yet) is go beyond the backstories and collection of traits which usually make up my characters, and somehow discover...
