Hey Thrifty!

I havent been around the same time as you in quite a while now.

How are you?

1/29/2009 #106
Thriftstar

Fine, I've past the 50 pages on my story, so yay!

How 'bout you?

Aero's Twin

Congrats, lovey.

I only wish I could get that far in my story. I've been stuck in one spot for the longest.

1/29/2009 #108
Thriftstar

What are you stuck on?

1/29/2009 #109
Aero's Twin

Well I got the first 4 chapters where my couple meets and gets together.

The 5th chapter is where the first conflict between them happens. Major conflict...but I'm stuck on the second page of it, introducing new characters.

Sorry, I'm just gonna interrupt for a second... hi Thriftstar, hi Xerox! I like that name. xD

Ooh, congrats on the 50 pages! I wish I could get that far too...

1/29/2009 #111
Thriftstar

Is it the new characters or the conflict that gets stuck?

EDIT

Don't worry about interupting Maplewing, that's what we all do around here ;)

Aero's Twin

Maplewing I'm going to call you Petri. And never apologize for interrupting here! XD

@ Thrifty.; Its the characters...Like...there were only 4 characters through the first chapters...and now I have to introduce almost all of the rest of them i this chapter, because they're all together. And I'm having a hard time with the conversations that come along with bringing them in.

1/29/2009 #113
Maplewing

Petri... okay, whatever you want! It sorta has a ring to it. ;D

1/29/2009 #114
Aero's Twin

I sure thought so! And my logic makes a whole lot more sense than Cae's ever will, i'm sure.

1/29/2009 #115
Thriftstar

I don't know if I can remeber to call you Petri, Maplewing, but hey I'll give it a go;)

@ Xerox: When I get stuck on a new character I usually try to think why I need the character in the story and if I can't think of enough reasons I just yank them out. Sometimes it also helps me to keep some character 2-D on purpose. If I have to remember all of them, I'll go crazy XD Don't know if it helps...

1/29/2009 #116
Aero's Twin

Usually that would be great advice. In this particular story, All the characters I have to introduce are essential and they have to each have some distinguishable personality for 2 reasons. 1 being that they each cause a conflict with the couple at one point or another. The other being that it's based on a true story.

1/29/2009 #117
Thriftstar

Wow, that's a good reason to get stuck. What about introducing them briefly now and fleshing them out as the story goes along?

Respect for basing it on a true story. I know I could never do that. I let my imagination run away with me too much, especially when I'm writing :D.

Maplewing

Hey, at least you had the determination to write something based on a true story. That makes things a lot harder (in my opinion). When I get stuck, and I know this probably isn't helpful, I put away the story that's being annoying and start something new, just to get my mind off it. Then I go back later and try again. Of course, this has the dangerous side affect of coming back and thinking your story is total crap...

1/29/2009 #119
Thriftstar

@ Perti: That's what I always did. The problem with me was however, that I never returned to the story. XD One of my new year's resolutions is that I finish the story I am working on now, before I start a new one. That'll be quite the challenge. *g*
