Just a quick check-in.

Posted on | August 6, 2014

After about a year of working at my new job, I’ve finally found the bandwidth to start writing again. I made a few starts and hated them, so I decided to revive my skills by “writing something easy:” fanfiction.

Hah. And I say again, Hah. Fanfiction isn’t easy. It’s harder even that writing traditional fiction, because you’re constrained by your own desire to stay true to the characters and situations you’re appropriating for your material. There’s a checklist of highpoints you have to hit if you’re to keep the fans on their toes, especially if you’re writing something with “secret” material, stuff only the most rabid fans know, like Tony Stark blood type (A-positive) or that Frozen‘s Elsa & Anna are both left-handed.

But it’s been fun. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with all this stuff. I might post it, but I’m one of those people who so hates when someone doesn’t finish a series they’ve started, and I’m guilty of this, that I’ve resolved never to release anything until it’s absolutely done and ready to post.

About that: one of the reasons I haven’t posted anything in a while is, um, this is embarrassing to admit, I’ve forgotten how to put new stories into the Narrator story engine. So I’ve started on re-writing it. I’ll keep you posted on the details.
