rofl, lack of mojo, you and Silver have? April and May must be bad months- I have seen some bad irl breakups, and other stuff in life that I don't feel like mentioning.
I think I have lost some mojo too. Last month, I finished the first chapter of my fic, and now I am going to revise it, and I haven't gotten much of that done ;; Hope I get in the mood soon o3o
It really depends on how you want to approach your fic. You can post the first chapter now, and wait to see what reviewers say so you can use the advice in your next chapter. Or, if you don't want to have gaps between postings, you can have a few chapters written before posting.
Like I said, it really depends on what you want to do. Personally, I'm waiting to have a few chapters ready to go, since it takes me forever to write. But if you want to see what people have to say about your fic, then post the first chapter when you're ready.
Would it be a good idea to write more than one chapter in the fic before releasing it? I am done with the first chapter, and TK is my reviewer, but I am jittery and intense especially since i have had to go a week without inferior beer.
Ah, thanks. That lifted a lot off of my mind.
And yes, I should lay off the Starbucks. They kept me up till 4AM, then I slept at 5AM, after which at 6AM I made break feast.
I just hope I can continue writing my fic soon. Like I said, TK and Gummy are all "WRITE WRITE WRITE RELEASE RELEASE RELEASE", for like the past month or so XD Hooray for internet schooling giving me more time to be creative~
Just because your character is based off of Ruby doesn't mean that he has to be exact, or else manga fans will kill you. I mean, I've read plenty of fics where the main characters have some small similarity to either a video game character or a manga character, but they tweaked it just enough to separate the two. Seriously, I've read plenty of fics where the main character looks exactly like the FireRed/LeafGreen girl trainer.
In less words: Your character is fine. Since you aren't writing about Ruby the manga character, no one can claim that you're messing up his character. You're writing about your own character who has his basis in Ruby.
Well, I do have one thing on my mind that might or might not be an issue with Manga fans.
Ruby is one of my favorite characters, making Hoenn one of my favorite regions. The fic will be called, "Jade Adventures", the main character being a base of Ruby. Jade is a hue of Emerald. My main characters, Jade and May (not going with Sapphire) will start off their journey in their Emerald clothing. I am not too much of a fan of the RS clothing. And, though the main male is off of Ruby's base, Jade isn't like Ruby. He likes gym battles, not contests. Same goes with May. So, the thought of people not liking the main character because he is off of Ruby's base, but not like him, and not using his name, nor a hue of it. And with May, name not being a hue of Sapphire.
Think there will be any troubles among Manga fans, or are my Starbucks hyped energy levels (I had like two or three Grande Fraps today) just messing with my head? XD;
Though, despite the possible facts, I am still planning to release it. One, I just love Hoenn and trainer fics, two, TK and Gummy are pressuring me, and three, I am really inspired. I have the storyline all planned out, the final battle is always buzzing in my dreams, and much more.
