Just so you know, bobandbill and I will just double-check with each other over your beta reader application, since you don't have any links to reviews. I'll let you know as soon as possible what our decision is.
Heeyy! Don't worry at all! But I seriously appreciate that you took the time to let me know ._. <3 That was reeaally nice of you!
I showed that thread to Vendak here, and he actually helped me mull things over on MSN. I don't want to make the first post longer, and I don't want to doublepost, but I have an idea of what to do and was thinking of writing it and seeing what you think.
Sorry about that! It's late for me, too (3AM, in fact!) so I completely understand. I think I will make a thread about it, actually. You can reply to me there (I'll provide you with a bit more information.) Thanks for at least hearing me out! It's appreciated!
It's getting kind of late for me, and the VM I had typed up was really confusing even to me. So after I get some sleep, I'll look through any of my writing books to see if there's advice to help you. And I'll be more coherent to explain my own way of dealing with your problem, since I had to figure out the exact same thing earlier today.
Hey! You're back online! Excellent~
Sorry about the.. pun-ny goodness, there.. ahem~
I also messaged Impo about it, cause he writes a lot of fanfiction, but I wanted to know your opinion on if I should make this a thread.
Basically, I took a silly prompt and ran with it for a chapter, but it sorta sparked like.. this bigger story and I really want to run with it. I know what I want the plot to be about, I know what story points I want to hit, but there's an issue: I'm trying to weave the story into the actual timeline of the game; I've been looking up wiki timelines and info for it so I can make it really accurate, and therefore am having a bit of trouble fitting what I want to have happen within that timeframe without it seeming forced (for the characters, that is.) It's become somewhat of a "should this happen first? or should this happen the day prior so that he has time to develop internal conflict or should the internal conflict arise when he is speaking to another character?" Basically.. what would make it stronger and flow better.
This VM aside, I notice that so many betas help with grammar and punctuation (which is always good,) but I feel like I need someone who's willing to help me iron out the plot a bit before I start to organize the chapters. Oh jeeze, it's a bit complicated, but I was wondering if I should make a thread or if there were any quick tips besides that "novel snowflake" link in the resources you could offer me.
