  1. Ah...It's been a busy year. Got so sick and tired of what I was writing I redesigned the maps and made some new ones. Still want to kill everybody. Made mistake of letting my dad reading manuscript. Only got two to three chapters in and he said the story was jumping around a lot and it doesn't appear to be coherent...... In the chapters he's read I've only introduced two characters who briefly encounter each other in the second chapter. Realised my Asperger's may prevent me from ever finishing the book or any book, then realised if Anna Smith Spark could do it so can I. Diagnosed myself as having a grasshopper mind, and nearly wrote an entire plot line based on the fact I saw how the Missy and Master arc was finished in season 10 of NEW WHO and thought wouldn't that suit these two characters of mine, and so had to stop myself. And I currently debate whether or not to split half my characters and plot line from one story into another one and have two completely unrelated world and story. It's been a busy year.
  2. Has it been theorised that Mimara is being kept alive by the consult purely because her judging eye would work so very well with the No God and her being put inside it. The same way Proyas might end up in the No God. Or, alternatively, will Mimara be the one to stop the No God as with the Judging Eye she can answer it's WHAT DO YOU SEE?
  3. Was that the gay naked elf dancing in book 2?
  4. Theory. Celmomas son is the No-God, or at least is in the carapace. It was the No-God who Celmomas saw when he died, not his son. He just thought it was. Theory comes from Akka having the dream that he is Celmomas. Mimara killed the true Anasurimbor of the prophecy and this is a huge swerveball we never expected. Or the baby will be the Anasurimbor. Crackpot theories. Also. Did I read right at the very end when Akka had that dream, that he was witnessing the finishing of the remaking of the No-God rather than it's making.

  6. Wonder if my novella of a woman from an African type setting being sent to marry someone from place not modelled on a European setting, but could easily be construed as one, to avoid a war might count. On the basis of which. How foreshadowed do things need to be? Ending of novella ends with revolution breaking out in the city against the King, which happens because another group sought to remove the control the King and Church had over an ancient order. It's only hinted at through a single conversation between two characters at the start. The POV character is then out of the country escorting the girl back to the city. When they get back there is a Fencing Contest that ends with the start of the rebellion. Things are left in confusion as to what is happening as I focus more on what happens to the woman and the man who brought her to the city.
  7. On an unrelated note. I've always thought that the Tusk was introduced as a religion by the Inchies as a way to combat the Chisarum. Don't know if this was confirmed as true or not. Was it?
  8. Do you actually want help or are you just spamming the board at various intervals with your idea as what it appears you're doing? Cause you say you want help but won't tell us why you need help. Are you looking for writers because your grasp on spelling isn't good? Are you looking for someone to come up with a plot for you? Are you James Patterson? And why are the Gods old? Why can't they be young or middle age?
  9. I think you will find that the whole paragraph about Jezal admiring himself in the mirror is foreshadowing for something in book 2
  10. Something short. A character description from the second chapter.
  11. Sorry to double post. Would you find it annoying that even though a few years might pass between two books, that the characters are effected by events from previous events related to the first book but not actually shown? Example. Book one is about war. Book two is set after that war, but the events troubling the characters happened after the book ended?
  12. It's annoying isn't it. The way I combat it, is taking those ideas, and write them down in the context of being another book. You can still write those ideas, but they don't have to be THE one you write now. Easier said than done though. I'm not one for outlining. I have a few scenes worked out in my head and how to get there. Some problems are solved by raising the age of some characters and lowering the age of others. I recently wrote 37 thousand words and stopped, in the middle when I realised I have three Journey arcs. Two which end right before they reach their goal and would be picked up in book 2. And one which consisted of character A going to place B and picking up character c and taking back to place A. So not really a coheriant plot. So I'm currently wrangling it to give it a more solid definable plot. Unfortunately, I'm not one of these people who can finish a project then go back and change things plotwise. I can write 100, 000 words, but if I realise at point 100, 001 that a plot arc doesn't make sense, I have to start from word 0.
  13. Yes. My problem is. I have the characters down how Ilike them, but I'm stuck going. "Well what if I tell the story this way, no wait scrap those 10 chapters. What if I start this way instead...no wait. Yours a similar problem?
  14. Bethod manipulating Logen with sex is not an image I was expecting today....but it happened.
  15. Got a question about agency and the whole pro-re-active thing. I'm trying to figure out what gives the female character more agency. Being sent to marry king of different country, but is actually sent to kill him by a group who say they'll find her missing sister. Falls in love with honour guard and then kills the King anyway and ends up as Queen. I don't see much agency there, do you? Woman's house burns down, her family is killed and she goes on the run, decides to find long lost sister while being hunted by people. Still kind of re active, as she only decides to look for sister when she's no other choice, one of those hunters finds her and the two get caught up with a bunch of mercenaries travelling to an abandoned island, before escaping from them. Woman travels to a military group and asks for help in finding her sister from specialist searchers and an old friend. Ends up finding the group who kidnapped her sister, but does not find sister. This last one I think has more agency for the female character. Opinions?
