Your approach to story writing, research, choices? on 9/1/2022 10:21:20 AM

My writing style is very 'moment' based. I'll have characters and I'll want them to go through certain things. For example my 'Angel' series of short stories I've published here. One major scene I wanted was to have a fallen angel choke slam someone. The rest of that was making it happen and the reaction.

Most of my research is remembering something then looking to see to how I could apply it. Like I could go oh yeah I want a mythical horse in this, doesn't Celtic mythology have something like that? 

I actually don't recommend my method, it just works for me. I wish I could sit down and fully plan but I just can't.

I'll join. Might be nice to put out a full story.

So a question on 4/13/2022 8:25:26 AM

Thanks for your feedback but yeah each one would be several short stories long. The characters from the Angel series would show up, but the focus would be on the new characters. It would be their story after all. And the Angel series ended on a far flash forward something like 60-70 years so a whole lifetime for shenanigan. But again I'm not sure hence why I asked but I'll keep what you said in mind, so thanks.

So a question on 4/13/2022 7:55:00 AM

I have a question I would like some advice on. Some background first though. A while ago I did my Angel series, the interesting part is it has been planned as the first in what I'm rather unimaginativly calling the power trilogy. The first was supposed to be a story with a mc that had not much power so was pushed along.

The second series tentatively is called the Moon series. It would feature a mc who is striving to use newly gained power to fight for what holds dear.

The third series is currently titled the Traveler series would be about an mc who is trying to force himself to have power to deal with some trauma when he was powerless and the effects that can have.

So my question is this. Is this a solid enough through line for a shared universe or should I just keep it more separate but with small easter eggs.

I feel like it could work especially since I tend to be more methodical of a writer but I wouldn't want it to feel like a forced connection. Thank you for your time and any questions comments concerns or advice

Sounds like a you problem. I'm not agreeing to rescheduling.

You could just drop out.

Sure. Just to clarify it has to be in by 11:59 pm on the second?

I mean at least on my end as long as he stays on the site it'll continue. The half-ass shots don't add much.
