TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 34

When I wrote my last entry, I was having some trouble with stakes. After conversations with fellow writers Bigga and TAF, and several looks back at my own writing resources, I came to a few conclusions, which I think have solved my stakes problem. Hopefully permanently.

And that means we're clear to get back to fan fiction.

Unfortunately, the stakes issue demanded a look back at the internal structure of the fan fiction I've been working on. And, as seems to be the recurring case, I found something was wrong.

Part of the core of a story which I base everything off of is the story type. I use four main story types, and each dictates where the story begins and ends, and what the primary goal is (in very general terms). There's nothing wrong with the story types. I just... used the wrong one.

What can happen during development is that I'll start with an idea of how the story will...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #33

There usually comes a point during the development of a fan fiction, after the development is complete, I've taken a break, and I look back over the whole thing in preparation of creating the outline, that I begin to realize all the places I've gone wrong (and then much later Bigga makes me realize that I didn't realize the half of it).

I'm sorry to say I usually let these moments fade from memory. There are a few reasons. I am writing fan fiction, which by its nature is a trial and error method. It's not meant to be perfect. Also (and for the same reason), I can't go back and try to perfect every fan fiction I write, because I know that by the time I finish the development and look at it, there will be something else wrong I'll want to fix. I would never get anything actually written.

Occasionally though, I'll recognize that something is too wrong to be ignored. This happened with Ragnak, which resulted...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #32

Greetings, my hopefully avid (and currently invisible) readers. I have finished the development for the first installment of my infinite series. The title for this first fiction will be Let Go, and I really hope it works out, because it's the hardest title I've ever had to come up with. Not sure why.

As the entry fiction into the world of my infinite series, this first installment will be a single story arc. Any sequels, while using the same characters, will be on different story arcs. I'm projecting Let Go to be quite short, possibly even Ragnak size. I do not yet have a way to really determine how large or small a fiction will be until it is almost entirely developed. It just depends on how long the plot takes to run its course.

Meanwhile, the infinite series is probably going to be renamed from By Any Other Path. I'm still thinking on what that name should be, but I'll have it by the time I release the...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #31

It is curious how you can seem to be getting nowhere, and yet at the same time actually be unconsciously figuring out exactly what you think you can't solve.

Take BaoP. For a long time, I was banging my head against it, trying to find a theme to base the first installment on. 'I have to find a theme!' I kept telling myself. 'A theme! I need a theme! Everything starts with the theme!' Indeed, I've been telling myself (and anyone who would listen) this ever since I started writing.

As it turns out, I was wrong. Not completely wrong - you DO need a theme to lend your writing impression-leaving weight. But you do not, as I almost religiously believed, need to start with it. And as I suggested above, I discovered this quite by accident.

I had been trying to work with a vampire-centered tale for an iteration or two, but I had been failing to find a good theme. I would think I had one, but...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #30

Now that I have gotten more or less moved in and my computer is set up, I've been able to get back into my writing, test the waters, and find out where we stand.

The final fan fiction series is coming. This is a given. It is having difficulties getting off the ground though. There are a few factors contributing to this:
  • I want the installments to show - even if they don't focus on - the war. I've created a history of how the war began, where it stands, and how it will proceed once the series begins. I want to show that. I'm having trouble finding stories which are connected enough to the war.
  • Nothing feels particularly strong. I still don't have any sense of what the next story should be. It is still incredibly easy for me to pause and look at the development, and feel like it's going nowhere or that it is destined to not work out.
  • I keep running into complex problems on unimportant details. Few things
