TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #53

Fifty-three? Man, I've written a lot of these things.

Anyways, I wanted to give you all a brief update on where I am with my writing, and what is hanging me up (because there is, predictably, something hanging me up).

The vampire story - which refuses all attempts to name it - is basically fully developed and outlined. However, upon starting to write it, I found that the main character was very much like a lifeless stick of wood. This wasn't so much because he was underdeveloped as simply because of the unique circumstances I had written myself into, which made showing him rather difficult.

I've researched both how to further develop characters in general, and how to show my main character in specific, and I have some ideas which should work. Right now it's just a matter of plugging them all into the already-existing outline, and tweaking the beginning of that outline to compensate for them.

Once the outline is where I want it, writing will begin.

Based on the outline, the story is looking to be of average length (unlike what I've come up with recently). I would say I could start writing it within a few days to a few weeks. Once I start writing, it could be finished within two to six weeks. So at the most, I would say you could expect to see the story around the mid/end of July.

All of that is of course subject to change.

I'll keep you updated.

Interested to see what you cook up. Usually my answer for showing character traits is to put that character in situations or alongside other characters that directly contrast them. That gives ya an easy excuse to show their traits without it feeling out of place. For example in Fullmetal Alchemist's first episode they... er, forget it I'm a broken record. For example in Monsters Inc you get so much of Mike and Sully's character by the way they bounce off each other.

Also how about Fangs for all the Memories for the title? Very vampiric.

Hmm, opposing characters is a great idea I've heard of before, but had forgotten about. That could actually help quite a bit. Thanks!

About the title... Fangs, but probably won't work. I'll come up with something.
