My Story Updates and Ideas

"The Path to Destiny" -- I have removed the story from FF.N due to reasons of it needing SERIOUS revisions and my major writer's block that I would expect upset readers that might have barely started and then realize that I had basically given up after that (whew, run-on sentence!). Although the "giving up" part's not entirely true, it IS true that I have super-omega major writer's block. It's a common faulty to all starting authors here on FF.N, because when I had first joined, I had posted this story with almost no thought of the next chapter; they would all just be pointless chapters that I came up with the night before posting. So being, I've looked the story text over and it sounds very childish to me, so now I've decided to revise it as well. Please, my readers, don't fear for this story; I'll get to working on it as soon as possible, but it's most likely a LONG ways from now before it's ready...

In other news, if any of you would still like to see my picture of Arabella (my OC in the story), click the link below:

Clicky!

Love's Reminiscence (reviews) -- This is a new, revised version of my original one-shot songfic. Generally nothing of the story has changed, but I have now added in better details; it's my attempt at displaying to you all my new and updated writing style since I had first released as "My Heart Will Go On" when I was only fourteen. So, if any of you read it and like it, please review; and even if you didn't and think it could be improved in some way, review anyways. I always take constructive criticism from anyone who offers it, and I also like hearing other's input and thoughts on what I write.

My Other Ideas: (separated by paragraphs and organized by priority, first being at the top of my "to-write" list)

All right, so, this is my new idea: since I'm a reasonably-large fan of the Warriors series by Erin Hunter, and for about two years I've been roleplaying with the popular series at an Invisionfree site, hosted by Aurora of the North, Into the Elements. Long story short: near the beginning of my first couple of weeks there, I created a character named Willowstream, a medicine cat that had descended from a Clan named EarthClan. I tried to recreate the story of how that Clan collapsed and how Willowstream got stranded ever since then, but then I thought, "Hey, what if I had made a COMPLETE story out of this and put it here on FF.N?" I was totally psyched over the idea! I've already been thinking about this for about a year, so this should be done a bit quicker than I would normally update with, but we'll see. The working title is EarthClan's Legacy: Tears of a Willow, so this means no stealing! :)

My other project I'm working on alongside the EarthClan's Legacy one is another history-filler. It's still in the Warriors category and still filling in the history of my Willowstream character at Into the Elements (see link above). Another long story short: about a year and a half ago (I think game-wise; real-time-wise I'm still trying to figure out...), I sent my character off on a journey to a faraway land into Tribe territory. It was for a plot that I had started to roll along with, but some other things happened and it was kinda left in the dust. Since it's now been so long since doing anything with the plot, like my EarthClan idea, I thought I should make a full story out of it and post it up here! The only difficult thing with this is getting into character with all of my friend's characters. Who knows - I might actually ask them to help me out a bit! But as of now, I'm still trying to figure out what exactly I want to have happen in the story. As of now, it's just a side-burner project compared to my EarthClan one. My goal is to have both posted up before spring of 2010, but maybe I can work a bit faster than that. I'll have to use as much time as I can squeeze out of my new senior year coming up. I'm still working on a title, so I'm open for suggestions if you guys have any! :)

If nothing else amounts from those other stories, I haven't got any stone-set ideas yet, but I would very much like to do stuff with the Tribes from the original series of Warriors. I've always been fascinated by them, so maybe when the series begins to wrap up the history of the actual Tribes, perhaps I'll try to write some stuff about them! They may be chapter-length stories, or what-ifs, or oneshot songfics, or even a collection of oneshots altogether, and so on like that; there's ENDLESS possibilities to my reign!! But we'll see, I'll do SOMETHING for the Tribes! ;)

xx

Please feel free to share your thoughts on any of these with me - I'd really appreciate any encouragement I can get! But, of course, it's most definitely not going to happen anytime soon. Story development is always the first priority to fanfictions, and that's most likely where these ideas are at right now, not ready to be done for weeks, perhaps even months from now. I'll let you guys know ahead of time what place I'm at with them, though, so be sure to check back often!

xx

The mentioned themes and concepts of the mentioned future fanfics are (c) to their respectful authors and/or owners. However, these story ideas and its given working titles currently belong to me; if I find that anyone has stolen these ideas in ANY kind of form without express permission from myself, I will immediately send a report to FF.N Services without hesitation and your account can and most likely WILL be removed without warning. It's never nice to steal from other people, and justice will be brought if necessary.

Thanks...

Me As a Beta

As of now, because I have removed my other story "The Path to Destiny" (for reasons mentioned already) that qualified me to the rank of a Beta, I'm technically not official. But, I have Beta'd before in the past and I'm still willing to anyone who requests me properly. Because my official profile can't be posted up, I'll put it here for anyone looking for my Beta services.

xx

Beta-Reader Profile (General)

Currently: NOT ACCEPTING requests
Reason:
My life is pretty hectic right now - I don't think I can make any more commitments at the moment...

Beta Profile/Bio:
There's an old saying that "teamwork divides the task and multiplies the success". I hope that if anyone feels they need a sharp eye for their story that they will not be hesitant in asking me. I am merely the tag-team player on this "race for the fanfics", and am willing to help out any way I can without sending someone to the stalls crying. :P

I do this happily because I possess a great love for stories, simple as that. I have a history of always acing my selected work in my school English classes; I've even been complimented on multiple occasions to be a future best-selling author! I believe I know what it takes to make a story work great with various audiences, and I'm very willing to use that talent and build up others in their success. :)

But now, this is a basic overview of how I "beta-read" stories:

-- First things first, I read all the way through the story to get a good feel for it and what place it's at currently;
-- While I'm moving through my first time, I try to fix any spelling or errors in grammar and punctuation. Just anything that I am known to quickly catch;
-- After getting through it once, I make mental notes in my head of which chapters I might need to look back on - whether it's for something as simple as conventions, to a point in the story that I felt needed more "strengthening";
-- If anything else needs to be fixed up, I put it on my little "schlist" and send it to the author with a full-detailed report of what were the strengths, what needed to be improved, and vice versa. Being this (as with most Beta-Readers), I DO NOT WRITE FOR THE AUTHOR. I merely give a list of what needs to be done. I may occasionally give suggestions, but nothing comes out as an entire submittable work.

Simple as that! If there are any questions of how I Beta-read and/or myself AS a Beta-Reader, don't be afraid to ask me through a Private Message! :)

My Strengths:
It's all up to you what I get done, but my strengths and focus points for stories are simply these:

1. Conventions Spelling, grammar, punctuation, story format, you name it! Number one priority, and I catch these VERY easily.
2. Character Development Another top priority. I have a certain list that I keep that helps A LOT with character development: from what their name is to their self-esteem, quirks, and all that other good stuff. The list is unbeatable and really helps to avoid Sue's and Stu's; so if you need help quick, I'll be here at your service!
3. Story Structure This one is pretty much EVERYTHING! I can sense whether or not a plot is believable or not, or even if it's flowing correctly. And what if you feel like it's not really that unique among other stories out there? Don't be afraid to ask me for help!
4. Descriptions and Ratings Most stories can be summed up in just a few sentences, which I have a sense for coming up with easily, so don't be hesitant to ask!
5. Last-minute Names Can't find a good name for a charrie, one of your chapters, or even the story itself? I'll help with that!

My Weaknesses:
It would most likely have to be these:

1. MOVING Plot Ideas I possess a good perspective of BASIC plots, but nothing too unique as to start a whole story arc.
2. "Twisting" Stories My twists always end up with Goldilocks being saved by the hunter, so to speak. :P

I've always struggled with these myself and I absolutely dread it... -_-;; So I'm sorry, but to require my services, you'll at least have to have an actual STORY started. I can take it from there. :)

I, unfortunately, have another weakness that may require you to sit down and think some before you ask me to Beta your story...

3. TIME!! I usually take a LOT of time when it comes to Beta-ing. I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to writing and other things related to my strengths; whenever I'm assigned something in school relating to writing papers, I usually stay up late at night trying to get it absolutely perfect. And besides just that, I've got my own life that I need to balance and am in the process of losing time to get on the computer. If you don't have that much time on your hands, I'd recommend you find someone else...

Preferred:
I seek for stories that have actual meaning - a plotline that is easy to follow. It saves a LOT of confusion later on for me and is easier to do than those annoying things like "Need Names?" or "Create This!" or something else like that... Along with that, I appreciate any stories that have serious authors and a sense of maturity in their writing; if they just wrote something "because they were bored", that shows a lack of maturity to me.

Other than that, I can tackle most stories.

Not My Cup of Tea:
Ugh, humors and parodies. I agree that sometimes they're fun to read and whatnot, but such stories have no real need to have a Beta-Reader skim over other than to possibly check for spelling…

Elements of an Awesome Story

Although numbered, no particular order is meant; all are equally important!

#1 – GRAMMAR!! Gah, I can’t express this enough (hence the caps). And believe it or not, there are SOME people that think it's not really that necessary or important. Ha! I beg to differ!

Let me put it this way: grammar and punctuation is like how you dress every day - if you dress nice and proper, people will think good things of you and will want to come and talk and associate with you; but if you dress like crap or in some way that’s just not that appealing, people will get a completely different perspective of what you might have in store for them if they talk to you, so they will instead shun you like the friendless kid in Math class. Now I know that sounds a bit judgmental and, you know, putting people into "classes" and such, but it's human nature, guys; we can't help it! That's why that myth of "first impressions aren't always everything" is so not true: it IS everything!

But I hope you get the idea there: good grammar, good story, potential for a review; bad grammar, bad story, go read something else. We all want the best for our stories and want people to think good of it and good intentions from the author, so keep a good eye out for grammar.

If you need any help in this area, look up some grammar machines on Google; there are TONS and all will help you! Or just have a Beta Reader look over it who has their strengths in grammar. Don't take whatever they say to fix too hard or too far; they honestly just want to help. But just to warn you: if I was your Beta and saw the many grammar errors you have, I'd get out the good 'ole "grammar bat" and beat you senseless with it first, and THEN tell you what needs fixing. Hey, it's tough, but it's efficient. :)

#2 – Creativity! Other words for this could be "uniqueness", how your story is different from everyone else’s (in a good way), and so on like that. And, once again, some people manage to completely bypass this in creating their story, which eventually ends up posted with a few flamed reviews. Just goes to show...

Check out this example scenario of someone’s new story and their story summary:

--Note: Although most of these concepts in this example are inspired by what I've seen through experience, I did not rip this off anyone - this is randomly and completely made up by myself. Any relation to any particular user or story was unintentional and purely coincidental!

"Random Subject" - Rated: K - English - General/Action/Adventure - Chapters: 1 - Words: 345 - Updated: 01-00-09 - Published: 01-00-09 - Random Character 1 & Random Character 2

xx

Not only does this completely reek of bad grammar and "noobishness", but it's also a pretty basic synopsis of what I find every day here on FF.N. Don’t let it happen to you; do something that no one else has done yet!

Another really good benefit of creativity is the very good chance of avoiding "stealing someone's story". It CAN be done on accident, and trust me, it's a mess you do NOT want to be in if you haven't already. Not sure how to check for this? Use the “Search” feature at the top of the FF.N screen, type in a few words, and see if someone else has done it in your category or something. It's worked lots of times for me, and it really helps to avoid any potential "story stealing".

#3 - Details!! Yet ANOTHER thing that a lot of people here seem to forget about. It's especially common with those younger users just barely starting out. Any people that are reading this now, I want you all to continue reading and get it sunken into your brains.

A very good quote mentioned in my favorite quotes gives great advice on this; I read it every time I start to write. It says: "Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass." That pretty much says it all, my fellow authors... (the rest coming soon!) ...

#4 - Character Development! ... (coming soon!) ...

#5 - Plots, Plots, PLOTS! ... (coming soon!) ...

(still in progress...)

-- The English Language --

There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple or pine in pineapple. And while no one knows what is in a hotdog, you can be pretty sure it isn't canine. English muffins were not invented in England nor French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies, while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square, and guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. And why is it that writers write, but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce, and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, two meese? Is cheese the plural of choose? One mouse, 2 mice. One louse, 2 lice. One house, 2 hice? If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Why do people recite at a play, and play at a recital? Ship by truck or car and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? Park on driveways and drive on parkways? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? How can the weather be hot as heck one day and cold as heck another? When a house burns up, it burns down. You fill in a form by filling it out and an alarm clock goes off by going on. You get in and out of a car, yet you get on and off a bus. When the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible. And why, when I wind up my watch, I start it, but when I wind up this essay, I end it? English is a silly language ... it doesn't know if it is coming or going!!

Quick! Write down 12 random cats from Warriors!

1. Leopardstar
2. Russetfur
3. Rowanclaw
4. Graystripe
5. Stormfur
6. Sootfur
7. Cinderpelt
8. Tigerstar
9. Mothwing
10. Ravenpaw
11. Mistyfoot
12. Firestar!

1) Have you ever read a six/eleven fanfic before?

Sootfur/Mistyfoot - Uh, no, I don't think so?... (What are your thoughts on it?! -me trying to encourage myself to be random-) Uhh... it wouldn't work?! I don't know!!

2) Do you think four is hot? How hot?

Graystripe - I've never had any attraction to a cat before (nor any other kind of non-human animal), so I would say NO... (dumbest question so far)

3) What would happen if twelve and eight started going out?

Firestar/Tigerstar?! - Uhhh... o.0;; I seriously think that the world of Warriors as we fans knew it would be all be instantaneously sucked up into a black hole that forms from such an act!! It's the same thing that happens when you divide by 0!

There, that's pretty random, isn't it?... (awkward silence)... Eh, whatever, I'm getting better. I can feel my brain slowly oozing out my ears. :)

4) Do you recall any fics about nine?

Mothwing - Hmm, none that I have read myself, but I'm sure there's plenty. Mothwing is a really interesting character to me, so I think I should go find those fics and see if any of them are any good! :)

5) Would two and six make a good couple?

Russetfur/Sootfur - They're from different Clans (AND one of them is already dead), but I dunno, I suppose if StarClan just randomly decided to let these two be together, maybe it'd work. It depends on how well Sootfur can put up with nasty little &@!@& . Yeah, you heard me...

6) Five/Nine or five/ten?

Stormfur/Mothwing or Stormfur/Ravenpaw - Honestly neither, but if necessary, definitely the first. Stormfur's not the one to run off with another tom cat, especially if they're a long-time friend of his father's!

7) What would happen if seven walked in on two and eight kissing?

Cinderpelt would walk in on Russetfur/Tigerstar - She... would tell... EVERYONE. No joke. And honestly, it's not that surprising of a couple, since they're both little-- okay, anyways, NEXT!...

8) Make up a summary of a three/ten fanfic.

Rowanclaw/Ravenpaw - "Summary: (before gender change) The stars were all too quiet to the answer-seeking Ravenpaw. Life without the Clans, without her, is this what he truly wanted? 'Rowanclaw... this can't work.' Those words would haunt him forever..."

First of all, this was kinda confusing to do, since Rowanclaw's gender changed somewhere in between the series. And second, they have almost NOTHING in common! They've never even met before! Gah, hardest question so far...

9) Is there any thing as one/eight fluff?

Leopardstar/Tigerstar - Ha, I would bet! Former leaders of TigerClan, temporary similar ambitions of the future of the Clans, it all fits! Heck, if I was bored enough, I'd probably write a fluff on those two... o.0 Hmmm... (spark of inspiration)

10) Suggest a title for a seven/twelve hurt/comfort fic?

Cinderpelt/Firestar - "The Crossroads of Futility", or maybe "I Have Failed You"

11) Does anyone on your friends list read three?

Rowanclaw - I wouldn't think so. This character has had a gender change, AND really doesn't do much in the series besides being father to Tawnypelt and her kits. He's like Nightcloud: just there to bring existence back into the old prophecy cats.

12) Does anyone on your friends list draw or write eleven?

Mistyfoot - Heck yeah! I tried drawing myself once; didn't turn out all that great, but she's definitely admired... I still might try a one-shot of some sort, but we'll see...

13) Would anyone on your friends list write two/four/five?

Russetfur, Graystripe, Stormfur - Uhh, not that I know of. I probably would, and here's my instantaneous idea: oneshot - Daddy brings out the whoopin' on Russetfur in protection of Stormfur? Yeah, pretty lame, but it was funny at the time... :P

14) What might ten scream at a great moment of passion?

Ravenpaw - DANG! So many that I'm too retarded to see!! Umm... how 'bout: "Ahh!! Tigerstar's going to kill me in my dreams!!"

15) If you wrote a songfic about eight, what song would you use?

Tigerstar - Gah, I haven't really found the right song for Tigerstar yet, but from Three Days Grace I have "Let It Die", or perhaps "Riot"; I'm gonna go song-searching after this...

16) If you wrote a one/six/twelve fic, what would the warning be?

Leopardstar/Sootfur/Firestar - WARNING: ThunderClan and RiverClan finally have it out with the interference of a dead cat. Contains blood and murder and violent action scenes. Rated M.

Huh, actually, if you dumb down all that stuff to a T level, that would make an awesome fic! INSPIRATION!! :D

17) What would be a good pick-up line for ten to use on two?

Ravenpaw/Russetfur

o.0 Uhh... "'Sup, Russetfur. I know our Clans have had it out a few times, but since I'm technically not part of ThunderClan anymore and living as a lonely loner, I'm open to a good run around the lake, IF I manage the journey there..." ... (suckiest line EVER) ...

18) 1 and 8 are in a happy relationship until 5 runs off with 9. After 8 dumps 1 for 12, 6 gets upset and retaliates by dating 12. Alone and broken-hearted, 1 travels in search of a friend. Finally, 1 meets 4 and 7. The three loners meet 10, who tells each of them to look for love. 4 finds 3, 7 gets 11, but now 1 is stuck in a never-ending love triangle with 6 and 2!

Leopardstar and Tigerstar are in a happy relationship until Stormfur runs off with Mothwing. After Tigerstar dumps Leopardstar for Firestar (look, there's the black hole!), Sootfur gets upset and retaliates by dating Firestar. Alone and broken-hearted, Leopardstar travels in search of a friend. Finally, Leopardstar meets Graystripe and Cinderpelt. The three loners meet Ravenpaw, who tells each of them to look for love. Graystripe finds Rowanclaw, Cinderpelt gets Mistyfoot, but now Leopardstar is stuck in a never-ending love triangle with Sootfur and Russetfur!

o_o;;...

19) What would be a good title for this?

Black Holes and Gayness Among the Clans

20) What would the genre(s) be?

Parody/Humor/Illiterate Writing

21) The end! By the way, I set you up on a date with two!

Russetfur?! Even if I was interested in dating cats, I'm not freakin' lez - retard! (sets fire to copy-&-paste quiz)

There! My brain is rotting on the floor! Curse you, random copy-&-paste quiz!! (goes and dies in a hole)
