The Grimorium Club Xll - Come and Chat Fellow Fantasy Writers! (OPEN - WELCOME BACK GRIMMIES!)


#461

Or, perhaps some Grimmies could do me a huge favor if they don’t mind and answer these questions:

(Edited to remove possible spoilers)


#462

You don’t have to write about pirates, I know my part was more a cuddle on the beach scene


#463

Am I trying to hide my true nature or am I out there. Do the people believe in magic in the “real world”


#464

Idk, perhaps I could stop by there later and try writing something. Don’t want to get into too many other character’s heads rn for fear of losing writing inspo o_O

(Edited to remove possible spoilers)


#465

What is my purpose in the real world?

Am I there by accident or am I on a mission of some sort?

How do I feel about the person who knows?

Seeing as I am of royal blood to I respect the rules of the faerie or am I a rogue looking to change them? (ie do I respect authority?)


#466

Deleted…


#467

Was I given any instructions before being dumped?

What is the nature of the human that found me. Is he/she wary of me? in awe? Helpful? Older or younger? What is their role in society?


#468

Is this helping at all?


#469

Deleted…


#470

Does the teen have a special place? A secret place?
Maybe a park or the zoo? Or better a library where he might teach the faerie some history.

Is there someone or something trying to foil the faerie’s plans to be king?

Is there a language barrier between the human and faerie?

Does the faerie have other magic? Could it be used to help the humans in some way?


#471

Deleted…


#472

If it hasn’t been written yet, maybe find some way that the human/s gets into trouble or get sick and the faerie has to save him/her or multiple humans perhaps some kind of catastrophe fire, weather, etc.


#473

I’d thought about trying to work one of these things in, and then a conflict arises afterwards that’s unrelated, but is made worse by said thing.

I’ve mostly pantzed this story since November (put it away after the first week of NaNo, tho). All I have to work on is notes. xD But that ‘thing’ should be coming in pretty soon. What I’ll likely have them do is have a few more mundane experiences, with some trouble moments coming in here and there, and then things should take off. The zoo idea is really good, though, so thanks!

Note: I’m going to delete my other posts in case others see any potential spoilers… because paranoid.


#474

Okie dokie well I hope my questions/suggestions helped


#475

Thanks :slight_smile: And they did help. Just don’t want leave too much about the story out there as it’s not on WP yet.


#476

That’s cool


#477

So I messed around with that Scrivener software. It is pretty good, it definitely helps you keep all of your stuff organized. I tried the compile thing to export it as a novel and what I have written 11000 words was about 59 pages. I guess I need to get working


#478

That sounds great. Organization is good. Wait. 11,000 words is only 59 pages? How do authors write for a living… I mean it makes sense when you think about it. But 11,000 words is a lot to write .-.


#479

Yeah if I write 2000 words for each chapter I have planned, it would be just over 180 pages


#480

Well, look at the bright side. If you take the quality over quantity approach, 180 pages are pretty decent.
