Welcome to my writing journal! Frankly I've noticed that I've been having a lot of chats about writing stuff...So I've decided to start to throw some of my more extensive/epic thoughts in here so I can get my urge to write giant authors notes out of my system ^_^ This post will be sitting on top for awhile, in classic blogger 'read this first' fashion.

I'll be tagging by story.

The Current Fic List )

Just a quick sketch of Rey in one of her Jakku outfits <3

I sketched out a 'High Res Zoom' of the action stuff in the 'The Road' plot arc. It's simple, but focuses in on what Rey does versus the big picture:

The red line is Cerebos' raid party :P

So. There IS, in fact, a point to the whole 'Road' plot arc. However, I'm worried that it might look too much like a Trapped By Mountain Lions situation.

Raider OCs, the Dark Side, and Rey's Sith Training )

Yep.

Ok, seriously canon!Rey...A STAFF? As your only weapon? On an obviously dangerous planet?

Cut for thoughts on canon Rey's questionable self-defense practices which kinda actually DO kinda make sense with the Disney narrative )

Another illustration, this time for when Rey finds Sidious and switches to the red light:

Rey finds the dead guys in the bilge...

So one of the reasons that chapter 5 of Counting Days has been so long in coming (besides getting the Reywalker bug HARD), is that I had to figure out where in the actual Hell everything on Jakku is located. And some of it is still unclear. Seriously, even with Wookiepedia and Google in my arsenal, I could only really do some approximate locations for a lot of these. But I did the best I could, with the help of a pad of paper, a pencil, and a lot of erasing.

Here's the end result, after some editing in Autodesk. Note that is is very, very NOT TO SCALE:

I was hoping to find a map online, so I wouldn't have to do this, but, no...

Luckily, I was able to put the Gorgon wherever I wanted. There are 7 major action contact points, and now hopefully I can use the visual aid to bang it out. YAY.

I had another brainwave today.

Thoughts )

Darth Sidious is a tough character to work with. In my opinion, the worst thing you can do with him is make him too nice... Well, genuinely nice. If he's good to anyone, there needs to be a reason. 'Counting Days' is kind of a strange fic, in that it's 100% Rey's POV, so she only sees what he wants her to see...at first. She figures out that her new friend isn't quite what he appears to be, but by the time she realizes what's up, he's a part of her life.

They do, however, become a team, of sorts. There are always two, after all...

Here's some notes on Sidious. Some of it is my comments-section brainstorming.

Notes on Sidious )

So I've been brainstorming Counting Days a lot. It's going to be longer and a lot more'granular' than Edge of Night because Rey's POV is 1. Rather methodical in nature - she has an 'Engineer Brain' 2. I have to pull off a realistic alignment shift and 3. Show some of the factors that influenced her decisions in Edge of Night.

Here's a sort-of rough notes list on Rey, some of which happened in the comments section of both fics in the series...Brainstorming, yo!!
