Some of you might have heard of Stackexchange.com, the community of 175 Q&A websites devoted to different topics. Users submit questions, other users answer, people upvote helpful answers, and knowledge is spread.

I've been a member of writing.stackexchange for a bit over 5 years, and of worldbuilding.stackexchan ge for a few months less. They've both helped me gain a lot of information and knowledge I otherwise wouldn't have had, as well as given me the opportunity to spread what I've learned.

Stack Exchange
I've always respected the stackexchange community for being open-minded. It's kind of a given: on a Q&A website you have to be receptive. You quickly learn that everyone has different opinions and different ways of looking at things. If you don't honor that fact of life, you are quickly forgotten. At the same time, it's important to hold to your own opinions, because the variety is what makes stackexchange work. For every question there...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #36
[Image]
The first installment in my infinite series (Eternity) is currently being written. I'm aiming for a Halloween release, but there are a few things happening this month which will suck my time away, so it might be a bit after Halloween. We'll see.

This first installment, End Come, is looking to be quite short. I've already talked about what I'm working on for it in terms of writing here, so I won't go into that again.

As far as the writing schedule goes, I'm planning on finishing up the writing within the next few days, and then sending it to Bigga. Proofreading usually takes a few days. After that, depending on what Bigga says, I might want to rewrite it. It's going to be short enough that I can. If that happens, it might get released after Halloween. If not, then before.

I'll keep you...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #35

I wanted to give you a quick update on where things stand with the infinite series, Eternity.

The current first installment for Eternity is moving along, despite the dubious progress in my signature. I've had to rework several elements in my process as I develop the tale, and that has contributed to the slow work. However, we're out of the more difficult part of the development, and into the more straightforward things, so it should get a bit easier.

As for content, I wanted to work on implied reactions in this fan fiction. I have a tendency to say what a character is thinking or how they see something, instead of using action or dialogue to convey their state of mind. That's something which has plagued my writing for a long time, so I'm really going to focus on fixing it in this next fan fiction.

After the whole fiasco with stakes, I'm also drilling down on both creation and escalation of...

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...
