TGRF'S Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #56

Over the last year or so, I've slowly come to realize that I would eventually have to write this entry. (There's an opener if there ever was one.)

And for the past few months, I've put off writing this entry. Probably because I didn't want to think it was real. Because when I hit that 'post now' button, I know what it could mean. But at this point, this entry is only a formality.

Enough with the drama.

I am postponing writing, including all fan fiction AND novels and anything else I might write, indefinitely. While I still feel (and hope) that I will at some point return to my writing, possibly within a few years, I have to say that never returning to it at all is a very real possibility. At least not in any major capacity.

This is not by choice. There are two primary reasons why this is happening:

1. College +. For those who have known me on this site...

It finally happened.

I have finally signed up for college.

I know that for most people, college is 'the thing' you do after high school. That's 'how it works': high school, four years or so of college, get a job, retire in however many years.

Coming from a self employed family and being homeschooled drilled such notions out of me early on. I realized that just doing 'the thing' that everyone else did was not what I wanted to do, especially when I saw people with mountains of student debt, stuck in a cubicle working a job they hated for the rest of their lives, breaking their backs trying to make their bosses rich.

I wasn't doing that. No way.

So I largely dismissed college for a very long time. It took me a long time to figure out that while what I had learned was valuable, I had gone off the deep end with it. College itself isn't bad; you just need to know what you're doing.

In terms of college,...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #55

When I wrote the last FFC, Blood, my vampire story, had just imploded spectacularly. Uninterested at the time in redoing what I had just spent a month working on, I let my interest wander towards an HiS sequel idea.

That also imploded, though not to the extent that the idea is impossible.

But the implosion left my interest wandering, with no clear direction or story to latch onto. I was left to ponder what I really wanted to write, what was really causing me problem after problem.

So today I looked over my more recent failed stories, and tried to piece together what exactly had gone wrong so many times. Here's the list I came up with:
  • Isolated scene - The inspiration deals with a single scene or idea. Core parts are often missing, and when attempting to attach a buildup to get to the scene, those missing parts lead to incomplete characters and/or plots. Also, the inspiration

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #54

So for those among you who avidly follow my signature, you might have noticed that the vampire tale, now tentatively titled Blood, is paused. Mentions of a 'character deviant' are made.

Deviants are what I call things which find their way into the development/story, but don't actually belong there. Like if I have an idea in my head about how a story can play out, but that idea really has nothing to do with how the story should play out, that idea is a deviant. I have to watch out for those things, because the further they get woven into the development/story, the bigger the chance I'll have to start completely over.

Well that's exactly what has happened: the basic idea for this vampire story has been floating around so long that it's accumulated a ton of ideas on exactly how it could play out. Some of those ideas stuck through the development, and unfortunately, they not only have nothing to do with...

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...
