Progress

 I'm really hoping that today will be so busy at the shop that I won't have any chance of writing, but yesterday we had a couple of slow hours and I had a chance to work on Chapter 1.2 of Helyanwe's story.


That chapter finally got finished last night. It's too long, I'll have to post it to my writers board in two segments but I want to be ahead of my crit friends anyway. So I will repost my revised Chapter 1.1 to them today, having finally determined that first person POV is the direction I want to go, and then next week sometime I can start posting Chapter 1.2 for crit.





Why am I writing this crazy story? It isn't anything that I can publish outside of the world of fanfic, and it is taking an extraordinary amount of my time and effort. Well, because this character, Helyanwe, has been knocking at my door since I began writing in March and she is insisting that I tell her story. So, after several months of fighting it, I have given in and am writing it. That's all I needed...one more thing to do - LOL. Oh well, anything for my muse.

Why am I writing this crazy story?

It is obviously a labour of love - as most fanfics are :D

It's either a labor of love or a desire to tell her story so that I can go on to the next character who has been very patiently waiting in the wings for her turn - LOL. I expect she'll finally get to come out in 2012 or 2013

Tell me about it. For the past few days, I've been thinking of an original fiction. Vampires. I made an outline of the plot and the chapters, and, if I wrote it, it wouldn't be less then 40.000 words. And no, even if I wrote it, I wouldn't publish it. It would only be for me and my friends. But the thought of writing it just won't let go...
So what am I supposed to do? *sigh*
And I'm into Chapter 3 of the first of seven sections now. She just won't let go. And I'm wondering if anyone will really care about her or want to read about her. But I guess that's a moot point. I have to write about her. And if she finds an audience and my writing also does, I will consider myself very fortunate.

Lol! You're writing it for the same reason so many of us are online at odd hours of the day or night, whining about characters who won't behave, plots that won't make sense - all for the pure joy of seeing the story finally unwind.

Except for the poor, lost souls who have not yet started their AinA fics, of course *g*
The story has to be told. She won't let loose of me otherwise. And with all of the other stories I've already written about her, the whole thing together will be a magnum opus. I just hope I don't bore everyone in the meanwhile, but I have to get this done, so no choice. Onwards....
