    I had that problem all the time for OL and I still have it for the book I'm writing now. For OL, I actually had no specific plot in mind when I started. It was around halfway finished when I got an idea of how it would end. I think this shows, too. There were several times in the story where items or characters were described in detail because I planned to use them later on. But then something changed, and the item or character never came up again. If I were to write a second draft, I would cut out those gaps so the story would flow more smoothly.

    For the book I'm writing now, I thought about the plot for a few months, and then wrote down a rough synopsis. The beginning and end were fairly clear-cut, but the middle was a bit fuzzy. After obsessing over it, I just decided to start writing. I figured that it would look a little like OL in the sense that there would be some loose ends. But I could clean those up in a second draft of the book.


    So that's basically how I get through it. I give myself a rough plan to stick to, but if I veer off course from time to time, I don't let it eat at me too much. I know that when the words are on paper rather than bouncing around in my head, I'll be able to refine them later on. I guess the main thing is to write, even if it doesn't always turn out how you want it to.

    Yeah, it always seems to a battle choosing what to work on. Sometimes I wish I had considered that before I started so many projects. Then it might not be such a mess right now, haha.

    I guess I haven't gotten into the Kindle thing yet. When I have a story I'm reading or editing from a computer, I usually print it out and carry it with me. I know it would be a whole lot easier space-wise to have something like a Kindle, but I'm too attached to the actual paper for some reason.

    And I agree. It's hard to find good fan fiction. I usually stumble across it while browsing forums. I've tried fanfiction.net a bit, but it feels difficult to weed through all of the stories. I'll have to try the ones you posted after I get some spare time.

    I sometimes have trouble with the 1,000 words, too. If I have homework or something to do I usually cut it down a bit. It's more of a guideline thing for me rather than a rule. Exercise for me is usually taking a thirty-minute walk to the other side of campus and back, haven't really done the gym thing, haha.

    And yeah, lab preparation can be annoying. I'm thankful that the prelab work for physics this quarter is actually a print-out deal where you write out the calculations and responses. In chemistry last year it was all done online, and it graded you as you entered in your work. It was picky, too. Often you'd enter in something like "1.56 mol" for an answer and the program would come back with "WRONG. 1.567 mol," and you'd want to punch the computer. But I digress. Like you said, you just have to do it bit by bit.

    And I mainly write fan fiction. I used to read a little, but I haven't had much time lately. I would say txteclipse's "Eon Chronicles" is one of my favorites. He stumbled upon OL and we realized our fics had a lot in common plot and character-wise. Oh, and I don't have msn.

    I also saw your PM. I had to do a double-take when I saw the title page of my fanfiction sitting on your Kindle. I think I had a reader who printed out OL and read it while waiting in the car for his kid after school, but to see the actual thing on a Kindle...that made my day.

    And I read the comments. Looking back, I see I did have a habit of ending most chapters with someone sleeping. I don't know if that was a good thing; I imagine it made a lot of readers sleepy. I've made more of an effort now to end many (but not all) chapters with a cliffhanger. I think the most riveting books I've read end the majority of their chapters with cliffhangers (I’m thinking of Suzanne Collin’s “The Hunger Games” right now).

    The chapter length is crazy, too. I think the first chapter was a little over a page. But like you said, they got longer as time went on. I think for me now, a chapter is around 3,000-7,000 words.

    Yeah, I understand about textbooks. School is starting for me on Wednesday, and I picked up the last of mine and moved into my dorm yesterday. My roommate, along with my two suitemates are all freshman. So yesterday, there were a lot of "firsts" for them, such as "I'M EATING MY FIRST COLLEGE MEAL!" or "I'M SPENDING MY FIRST NIGHT AT COLLEGE!" I find it humorous not in a demeaning sort of way, but because I know I probably said the same things last year without even realizing it.

    I think finding time to write is a time-management deal as well. I find that when I'm busy I put it off until later, but when later comes I'm still busy. I try to set myself a goal of around 1000 words a day, and that's worked well so far.

    And fanfiction has pretty much been my main tie to Pokemon, too. I also play the video games, lately Black. Since 2009 I've competed in a yearly Nintendo tournament in Seattle. I did my best in '09 when I got into the top 16 out of 128 with a rain dance team.

    Where he did the thing with AJ tricking her into thinking they get into a fight and she needs to lie to protect it.

    Yeah true they didn't fight.

    I liked it. I like how Discord tries to trick them.
