FFC #95 - August Update

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #95

I've hit a bit of a midpoint with the writing of Dilmir 3, and decided that it warranted another update, to let you know more about what to expect, as well as when to expect it.

The outline for Dilmir 3 is broken up into three fairly distinct 'phases', each roughly equal in length. I've written the first two phases, which brings the current page count to 101. So we're on track for the rough 150 page mark as a whole.

Progress has been pretty steady, but there might be some choppiness in writing this last part. For reasons which I'll probably expound upon in the author's note, the final phase of the outline is way less fleshed out than the other two. There were so many revisions which kept happening in this phase that when I finally got the outline working, I didn't have the steam left to properly outline most of it. So this means that the writing might be a little stop-and-go as I outline between writing sessions.

This shouldn't cause any issues. My interest in Dilmir is rekindled, and I should be able to fluctuate between writing and outlining fairly easily. I still anticipate the story being completed around the end of August/beginning of September. Allowing time for settling and proofreading, you should see it around mid-late September.

In terms of writing, I'm fairly pleased with the quality. Some scenes are definitely easier to write than others, but everything is flowing together reasonably well, and I haven't had to rewrite any large portions. I am finding that I'm enjoying writing character interactions over action scenes, which is interesting.

In terms of content, I think you can expect the epic conclusion Dilmir's story deserves. All loose threads should be connected, all questions answered. Beyond that, I won't say anything.

Other than that, there isn't much to do except keep writing.

Until then, stay 'Scaping!

Glad to see Dilmir 3 interest rekindling. It sounds like it's gonna be way bigger than the first two so I'm hoping it's epic.
