TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #49

Back in early January, I wrote an FFC about how I had discovered the 3-act-structure, and everything was coming together. Confusion was gone, knowledge was mine, and things were far simpler than they had ever been. I outlining stories faster than I had ever done so, and for the first time was able to break down simple stories into their structural parts.

That's what is known as the second half of the second act. The second half is characterized by victories. The main character, having learned the pivotal truth, goes after the main conflict with command and confidence, and wins many victories.

When I wrote that FFC, I was worried about only one thing:

Quote:
I'm a little worried, because the 3-act structure says that following those victories will be the deepest and darkest failure yet, but... we'll consider that later.
Well, sure enough, that darkest moment came. My writing...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #48

There hasn't been much going on in terms of writing over the past few days. Aside from Utgar, there hasn't really been much appreciable progress at all since HiS finished up. I've hinted at this before, but I think it's time I address the problem head on:

Something is keeping me from writing Eternity, and I don't really know what it is.

I have plenty of ideas about things to write, about ways to start Eternity. These are all good ideas, but they never work out. There is always some problem which keeps them from being written. Sometimes I get as far as the outline and maybe even start writing it, but as I do, I just don't feel like I'm doing it right. Interest fades, and I turn to other ideas. Nothing is sticking, and I don't know why.

I've more or less mentioned this issue in the most recent updates, and I've presented theories on what's happening. But, like my writing, those theories...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #47

My last update essentially boiled down to me saying I had no idea what I would be writing next. If you've followed my signature, you know that I eventually decided on writing Jandar. Now... I'm not so sure.

Everything is perfectly fine with Jandar. There were only minor problems during development. It's actually the fastest story I've ever created, and I'm already a few chapters in.

BUT... the interest is flagging.

In my last update, I mentioned how I need inspiration to carry me from start to finish with my stories. I don't think I was 100% right about that. I'm perfectly capable of just thinking something up and writing it without any moment of brilliant inspiration. And I think I know why.

When asked if he used a notebook, Stephen King once replied that he thought a notebook was the best way in the world to keep track of bad ideas. I think some of the assumptions...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #46

In case you missed it, I have finished the first of the prequels to Eternity. Utgar is live, and can be viewed at your pleasure.

With Utgar finished, I turned my attention to the next fan fiction in line, which continued the prequels: Einar. It was then that some problems arose.

You can probably guess what the plan was here. Originally, the prequels were going to follow each of the five original Valkyrie as they rose to power. While working on Utgar though, I came to realize that I had no story for Vydar or Ullar, and was only including them because they were one of the five Valkyrie. Including material for no reason is a sure way to fail, so I cut the number of short prequels from five to three, leaving Utgar, Einar, and Jandar. Utgar was already well on the way, and I had a good idea for what I wanted with Einar and Jandar.

Like I said, some problems occurred. Before I get to that...

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #45

It's me, and I'm back with another update. Let the rejoicing begin.

So, obviously, I have not yet posted Utgar, the first of the three short prequels to Eternity. The reason is that I wasn't happy with the private stakes. While I think I (for once) actually have the stakes I need, they weren't being shown well enough. I didn't feel like their weight was conveyed hardly at all, and the set up before they were threatened was virtually non-existent.

So I've done some pondering on the matter, and come up with some ideas which will, I hope, fix the problems. I am most likely looking at a rewrite of the first few chapters, and possible tweakings of references throughout the rest of the story. SO editing will probably take a bit longer than I originally anticipated.

Meanwhile, the character arc for the second story is in place and outlined (haven't paired it with the 3-act structure yet)....
