FFC #5 - What I've been missing

It is my opinion that my fan fiction writing peaked with The River that was Red, back in early 2015. I believe the primary reason is, ironically, not due to any great change in how I wrote. Instead, I think Red was the result of a true and undying interest in what I was writing, and what I was writing about.

A lot of things contribute to my desire to write fan fiction, but Red is the only fiction so far to have as many sources as it did which I was - to give it a name - passionate about. And that passion didn't die down until I had completed Red. I've always said that to turn out something great, you really, really need to believe in it. Up until Red, I hadn't been taking my own advice.

The trouble is, finding things you are really passionate about is a lot harder than I thought. As I've found out. Following Red, I wrote Apocalypse: Valhalla's Darkest Hour. Despite the promising title, it had several major flaws,...

FFC #4 - The nature of Horizon in Sight

Last year (yep, that joke still lives), I wrote my FFC #3, revealing who would and wouldn't be appearing in Horizon in Sight.

Unfortunately, shortly afterwards, I realized that I had made an error. I had developed the subcharacters, intending to follow by creating and developing the subplots. The problem was... the subplots created their own subcharacters, and completely removed the need for others. I quickly realized that I should have worked with subplots first, and subcharacters second.

So that's what I'm doing. Once I'm done with the subplots for HiS, I'll go back to the subcharacters and pick up the pieces. Until then... there's a good chance everything I said in FFC #3 is wrong. There's also a good chance everything I said will still apply too. Just... be forewarned.

On the topic of being forewarned, a few things are becoming clear about HiS; a few things which I think you should know...

FFC #3 - Who will (and won't) be in Horizon in Sight

Now that I'm nearing the end of the phase on subcharacters, I figured I could tell you who exactly will be showing up in Horizon. As always, this is liable to change. New and old characters can sneak in there one way or another, and some characters might change or be dropped completely. But at this point, that's pretty unlikely, at least for those characters who play pivotal roles. Background characters are always capable of popping into existence during writing.

Dan will of course be there, as will a lot of other familiar faces from the Quest. A lot of them have changed quite a bit, so I'm not going to spoil things by detailing who they are or what they do. But a quick mention of each won't hurt.

Heleer. Heleer has always been an integral part of Dan's tale, and she remains so in Horizon. This time though, she has an actual past (as opposed to the Quest, where she seemingly sprang into existence...

FFC #2 - TLFF First Preview

I haven't really said much about By Any Other Path, the supposedly last fan fiction I will be writing. The story did keep changing while I was developing it, but given that you will theoretically be stuck with it forever (), and that I know what I want it to be, I figured it couldn't hurt to show you where I'm at, and see what you think.

The driving idea behind The Last Fan Fiction (henceforth called TLFF), is a return to my roots. And by that, I don't mean I'll be making it up as I go and spelling 'he' as 'eh' all the time.

My first fan fiction was a tale of a group of friends, roaming Valhalla and joining forces with different peoples from different times, to fight diverse enemies who threatened all the land. Valhalla Reborn smacked of classic 'Scape, and that's the feeling I want for TLFF. Not post-apocalyptic, or home world, or some high emotional thing like Red. I want a fun tale.

So what does that...

FFC #1 - My Writing Shcedule

Greetings.

I originally planned on opening this post with a long-winded attempt at epicness, but after going down several rabbit trails and still getting nowhere, I decided a more direct approach would be better.

I've decided to start a series of blogs to keep my readers updated with where I am concerning my fan fiction. That being said, the main reason is that I just want to write about where I'm at, because it helps me look at my progress objectively, and see things I'm missing or need to do.

It makes sense that I should open this first entry by defining my writing schedule, as I see it:
  1. Complete Dan's Tale.
  2. If I haven't figured out phase 1 of my novels yet, do it now.
  3. Develop my final fan fiction series. Complete the first installment.
  4. Finish the development of my novel series.
  5. Add installments to final fan fiction series as need/interest arise.
  6. Complete first novel.
  7. Go through
