Good to hear
It's been busy everywhere, and cold most places.
What on, Skyguy?
We're supposed to be in Spring now! Why are we still getting snow...?
Because Mother Nature is angry?
SW of course
To be specific though...the fourth version of this:
That is the most complete variation. When I say 'sort of sequel, sort of rewrite' I mean that I'm jumping ahead in the timeline to where that stories sequel would have been, while retconning most of the stuff I had already written out. More of the fantastical stuff really, in addition to pushing it back a few years in-universe (the first one). And on rereading...
MAN does it need the rewrite. I cringe...I cringe on reading that
*gives Mother Nature a bouquet of vibrant tropical flowers*
Would these help?
I cringe rereading mine too. And that's only 7-8 months ago.
That might work, Paddy.
How are you, Rick?
Think about how I feel when that's over a year old
That being said, moving the timeline forward is really helping things. That one was more 'rar, WAR BATTLE FIGHT!!!', this one will be more political and moral drama. You'll see why assuming the rewrite/sequel ever gets off the ground
I'll bookmark it if it does, I'd like to see it
Rick, comme-ci, comme-ça as always.
I did have an old unfinished fanfic, and what makes me cringe is how darn short the chapters are!
How many words?
I can't say exactly, but many of them were...about 5 paragraphs. I never went below three, but they could get kinda small...
Nothing wrong with that (unless you post on FFN where people will only read 2k plus word chapters). Mine typically range around 2 thousand to four thousand these days though.
Yeah, I thought you were going to say a paragraph. Which isn't even bad if you can pull it off.
I always say "I'll write 2,000 words!" and end up with 3500+
As of now, any fanfiction "chapter," becomes a novel! Plus, they get so disconnected from the fandom it becomes it's own original story!
I've seen chapters on ff.net that are 10,000 words. Makes me freak out a little
"you're so vain, you probably think this song is about you"
me: it isn't?
It's like reading the Odessy if it's not properly spaced. Too long; don't read. Though I'm usually able to stick it out with fanfics, the Odyssey is a pain to read.
Walls of text are horrific.
Rick: It wasn't. Sorry
i have my mirror
Up for some training or no?
I read a fic with 90,000 word chapters. No, I'm not joking
