There’s something I’ve been doing for quite a while now with a work-in-progress Sonic fan fiction of mine, but found it hard to describe when asked about it. It's been almost entirely intuitive for me until very recently, and every time I tried to explain what I was doing, it sounded much more complicated than it really is.
But it’s about cutting to the core of what you’re writing, so you can maintain plot and character cohesion over time /story progress while keeping the flow and making characters appear "alive" /like real people.

I found a Tumblr post that described it much better than I can, very to-the-point. http://harvestman.tumblr.com/post/9021054891/how-to-summarize-whats-it-really-about

a bit more pondering on this under the cut. :p
Read more... )Plus I am doing much the same thing with my own life, to break out of a depression and deal with some long-standing anxiety issues. Which is why I’m not too communicative because phrasing myself is really hard for me when I’m doing this stuff. Sorry ’bout that. ^^;

Sorry about the way I ramble when I finally give a life sign, too. :p
