Dark Tone for a lighter story

Author: 

I started writing my next story and am not liking how its tone is turning out. It'll be me darkest story yet, dealing with sexual assault, child prostitution, pedophiles, and your typical run of the mill neglect and abuse. Then there's the violence that has to occur, especially as I want to show just how tough life is on the street for kids all alone in the world. I guess this is my adulation to those who are truly alone in the world, even if it's only part of my story.

Series ending, but getting a spinoff

Author: 

After writing roughly what would amount to being the next four parts of my current series "Parting of the Ways" I have decided to not write the series anymore and end it. I'll give my story an epilogue that covers the previous parts giving characters their due but I am ending the current series at Part 16.

Apology and an Update

I wanted to let the readers of my stories know that I'm trying to write my next story part. It is taking me longer than I normally take as it involves some violence and abuse, two of the toughest things for me to type as I have to keep myself from getting to angry and frustrated at the characters.

Fighting my story

Author: 

I have to apologize to those who are kind enough to read my current story, "Parting of the Ways". Part 4 is taking a while to write as I am trying hard to keep the number of characters down and keep it to a singular part. The difficulty though is it's sort of an epilog for parts of two prior stories, it is also trying to tastefully set up the next chapter but needs a little finessing to get right.

Parting of the Ways Part 3.5- Jaimie's Truth

drrzFS3.jpg

Disappointment- A Solo Story

I was in the kitchen preparing dinner for my family when my three children came home from a day with their friends. My daughter had a huge smile on her face while my two sons were shocked to see me. As soon as they saw my look they ran off scared, knowing that I was going to have a long talk with both of them over what they were wearing.

I shook my head at my daughter who acted casual. She didn't make any reference to her brothers wearing dresses nor did she seem to care. I shook my head in disappointment, she was a sneaky little devil and knew I'd have this reaction.

Solitude and Salvation Part 1

This is my first attempt at complete fiction. I know I'm not the best storyteller but please give this a chance. I don't know if/when I'll finish it but if it's not going well it'll fall silent and forgotten.

He had spent decades in denial about his true self. He was trying hard to fight his feelings but the battle was lost. He couldn't take it anymore, he had to be true to himself.

He was a woman inside. He was a she. His whole life was a sham, one desperately covered up in a false veneer of masculinity and dangerous actions.

Things are changing drastically for the family as the 14 graduate high school and head off to college. Many lives are changed over the summer, some more dramatically than others. Old demons come back to haunt a few while new challenges await others.

New Approach with next story

Author: 

I have had my muse pop in every few days to give me bits and pieces about my next story and she is trying to tell me to do something different.

Two days ago I got to thinking about universes and the links. I know my next story is going to be long and complex if I went the normal route with it but thinking about links in universes got me an idea that I don't think has been used often: small individual pieces linked by an ongoing central plot. The closest I have seen is Snowfall's early Lyssa Kordonay Missions series but that wasn't the same.

A M.Y.T.H.ical Start

TG Universes & Series: 

The new Magical Youth Training House springs up in a short period of time on land in the middle of nowhere surrounded by rough woods filled with all sorts of creatures.

How did this school for young magical beings come to be and why is it tied to a reclusive loner?

Some characters are used with permission from their creator and done so to fill in gaps in existing storylines written by others.

A M.Y.T.H.ical Start Part 2

Violet meets some interesting people and helps another deal with the consequences of an accident. She also learns a deep family secret and just how connected she is to Mathias

An oracle, five gods, and two unicorns- just a normal day for the newest vegepire!

A M.Y.T.H.ical Start Part 1

This is sort of an origin story for the newly opened M.Y.T.H. campus. It's my contribution to the world and hopefully captures the essence of what Dorothy wanted. Please give it some time to develop, it's the first time writing in someone else's universe.

This isn't your typical story. This isn't a happy one nor is it a sad one. It's just a story. One that is beyond belief.

Deep depression

Author: 

I need to get something off my chest. For the past three months I have been battling severe depression that has impacted me. I tried to use writing to get through it but the last three stories have fallen flat. Each story has hit him hard as they weren't well received and showed just how much I have angered and upset people since October. I have seen kudos and page views go down for everything I wrote and it's almost as if I don't exist anymore.

The Rival Part 5- Finale

Final thanks to T.J. for co-plotting the story and for pointing me straight. This is a long length but had a lot building up to it. It'll be directly influencing the next story so it's open-ended on purpose.

Prom Night, outside the Finn Family home

The Rival Part 4

T.J. co-plotted this part. This is all new and the last flashback. Part 5 is entirely in the present.
drrzFS3.jpg

Prom night, Porter residence

The family's money woes were angering Monica as she was forced to wear a secondhand dress that she didn't know the origin of. It was beautiful and in her favorite color and fit her body perfectly.

Story Style Failure

Author: 

I tried to do something different with my newest story and it hasn't garnered the interest I thought it would. I thought a back and forth story taken from the point of view of antagonists would be a fresh take on things but I guess it's leaving too many with a bad taste in their mouths as my antagonists become nasterier. It doesn't help that being the snarky jerk that has grown to be disliked by quite a few and has caused a lot of people to stop reading my drivel. I can't change who I am but it seems like I can't change what I write either.

The Rival Part 2

Again T.J. co-plotted this story part. References to events in "Righting Wrongs" are made but you don't have to have read it to follow along but one character's actions make more sense if you know what happened later
drrzFS3.jpg

Senior Year, three weeks before the prom

The Rival Part 1

Special thanks to T.J. for helping plot this series. If you haven't read "A New Finn" this features several incidents that occurred in it but from a new angle. Jeanie previously appeared unnamed but featured in "Sudden Losses" while Martin Poland was in "New Beginnings".
