Because I like to procrastine and I keep seeing this one. Like here:[livejournal.com profile] amyraine[livejournal.com profile] loopy777[livejournal.com profile] attackfish and[livejournal.com profile] avocadolove

I think it would be fun to talk about stories, but the usual memes are like, "What happens next?" "Tell me about Character A?" Which isn't so much talking about stories as it is writing more of a story. But you know how sometimes you read something and you're like, "I got ___ out of this story, I wonder if I have that right?" or "What on earth was ____ supposed to be?" and it's too awkward to ask the author? Now you could totally ask!

I've heard people say that writing is hard because you have to make decisions, but we never really talk about the decisions we make with stories or why we make them. We talk about plot bunnies, but not about how we actually turn them into a story.

And it seems like a lot more fun to do that than to do working.

So, if you wanted, ask me questions! (Or use this to ask your flist to ask you questions).

What were you trying to do [here]? Why did you decide to ____? This is what I thought about xyz, is that what you were going for? What made you write ____? Why did you decide to do this? And so on.

Note: most of my fics are here on Fanfiction.

So with my 'Warehouse' (which if any of you read, skip to ch 12. Everything before is beginner stuff I don't have the heart to erase...yet), there are several one-shots I'm sort of supposed to probably do something like a sequel for. I've done a sequel set for the first twelve (which should be skipped), but I think I'll do it a bit more selectively. With that in mind, this is a 'To Do' list. (But don't you know I should be doing homework. At least I didn't make an official New Year resolution so it's not broken:)

To be Continued's )

And a lot before that chapter is starting to make me cringe. Wow, I was such a newb. I like to think I've improved, but I'm biased, aren't I? I mean, back then, I thought I was writing Gold, and was that even a year ago? Maybe two. Give it a few more years, if I'm still doing this - and short of the Rapture, death, carpal tunnel, various other things, I probably will be - and I'll look back and think the same thing. I suppose that's why I haven't deleted all (most) of my old stories: it shows my progress.

I wonder if I'll have any of these written anytime soon, and how I'll use 'working' on these as an excuse to not update my other fics.
