FFC#16 - FINISHED - The Cover for Horizon in Sight

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 16

After much deliberation and several versions, I have finally settled on a cover for HiS which I like. My experimentation with 3D covers continues. Feel free to let me know your thoughts/speculations. Enjoy!

FFC #14 - The Development for HiS is COMPLETED!

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 14

A few short minutes ago, I finished putting the final touches on the outline to Horizon in Sight, otherwise known as 'Dan's Tale'. Writing will begin within a few days. The 'specs' for HiS, as well as the writing progress once I begin, can be located in my sig.

I've spoken with Bigga, and we've agreed to write and proofread each of the three sections of HiS one at a time. This means I could start releasing the first section while the second is being written, meaning potentially a much closer release date. I'm not making any promises though. I want to hear Bigga's thoughts on the first section before I decide to release it. I might just wait until the whole thing is written like I normally do. Time will tell.

In the meantime, for those of you who have read The Quest for Valhalla, it is very important that you do not spoil anything. The Quest and HiS are vastly different. However, HiS is based on the premise...

FFC #13 - The Improvements in HiS

Posted May 17th, 2018 at 03:00 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 13

Anyone who's been following my fan fictions probably knows that I try to use each one to get progressively better at writing. Ever since Dilmir, I've been narrowing down on specific aspects of my writing in each fan fiction, trying to improve them.

Horizon in Sight is, at the moment, the final fan fiction to do that. (Knowing how things go, there will probably be some issue Bigga finds with it which I will then want to correct with another fan fiction, but we aren't there yet.) I figured now that the development is nearly complete (just smoothing the outline out), I can tell you all what improvements you can expect in HiS.

My last fan fiction, A Chance of Success, was... well, I won't say it was bad. I wouldn't say it was overly good though, either. It was just kind of there.

The main thing I tried to improve on in ACoS was twists. Unfortunately, I didn't quite know how. Instead of creating...

FFC #12 - The Coming of Dan

It's been awhile since my last update. Surprisingly, not much has changed, but I still wanted to let you all know where I was.

Horizon in Sight has progressed nicely, and is nearly finished. The development, that is. The writing comes later. I have one last subplot I need to plug into the outline, then I need to smooth the outline out with transitions and such, and we'll be ready to start the writing. A very rough estimate would put the release date somewhere around July.

Writing will be temporarily disrupted from now until May 9, as I do several things I have never done before in my life: get on a plane, and visit the east coast. I'll be flying down to South Carolina, then heading to Florida, for two weeks. It's highly unlikely much writing will get done, though I might be able to do a bit on the plane (if they still allow that sort of thing...).

The 'specs' for HiS are a single fan fiction,...

FFC #11 - What happened to the fourth book of Dan's tale

Posted March 17th, 2018 at 01:44 AM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 11

For those of you avidly watching my signature, you might have noticed that I've recently had a bout of difficulties with HiS, forcing me to pause development twice. I've worked out solutions to those problems, but they did involve a few changes, so I decided to let you know what was happening.

I had assumed from the start that HiS would contain four (albeit short) books: the opening on Isadora, a retelling of the Quest on Valhalla, a retelling of LBV on Valhalla, and then the conclusion, where I assumed Dan returned to Isadora. I've already told you this in other entries.

I knew the general sequence of events for the first three books when I started. The middle two had already been written, and the first got fleshed out quickly. The final book has remained a mystery until very recently. I finally know what I need to do with it:

Delete it entirely.

Well, almost entirely. It's still...
