I've just re-read my old fan-fictions...

My country is in an unofficial, unstated Lockdown state. My school is closed. My exams are cancelled. I am bored. So I re-read all of my past fan-fictions.

That's right, I dug them up and read through them, and I just wanted to share with you all something that amused me a lot.

After reading through a few chapters, I discovered that although I remember the general plot of them all, I had forgotten so much, and so re-reading them was like reading them for the first time! And here's the big one:

I had forgotten the plot twists. 

All throughout the stories I dropped hints at things I would come back to in the future, and to be perfectly honest with you, for a good week I still had no idea where they were going. For example, I had hinted that my character's dad was alive and had left years ago- which means that he must have been a character that we'd already met. It took me so long to learn who my character's dad was.

The Big-Bad in the last books had a secret identity, and I had forgotten who it was.

There were things I still don't know because I didn't finish writing the stories. Such as the fact that I'll never know if the character had a secret brother, or why his dad disappeard, or what his dragon's power was. 

Moreover, there were stories of mine I found that had one chapter in and that was it. TITAN FORCE, when I found it, had such a cool synopsis. And it hints that there's some big reveal to do with mthe character's Whispering Death. But I don't know what it is or was ever going to be. And that really bugs me.

Another example, I know CETASAC was meant to have big reveals around that story, and I know that there was meant to be some revelation about the nature of dragons themselves in the end of it, but I WILL NEVER KNOW.

If there's anything you take away from this:

WRITE. STUFF. DOWN. 

You may think- oh it's fine I can remember it. You're right. For as long as you're writing something, you'll know the ins and outs of it all. However, after a week passes where it's not on your mind, then you get into trouble. There are mysteries that I don't know the answers to in my books, and so I'm left to wonder what younger me had in mind.

If you get bored throughout this strange strange time, please go ahead and have a read of them. You'll have to plough through younger-me's horrendous spelling and sentence structure, but you might be able to solve a few mysteries that I don't even know the answers to.

I feel ya...

I know this exact problem... one of my series that I started from when I was 10.... I have forgoten a good 90% of what I wanted to do for it because I never wrote it down XD Although in some cases that's fine, because now I can create new ideas that's far more planned out for it instead the sporadic ideas that had no meaning in the end of it XD And now the whole series is just overall planned out better.. Names and characters also escaped my mind a lot too, but a decent amount of them have been rediscovered or recreated, so I hope something similar happens for you :)

I take art and story commissions! As anyone would, I prefer paid, but I will also do free and art trades.



For art

I can do digital and traditional drawings. Dragons from HTTYD, Dragonvale and Flight Rising are all good, and so are hybrids. Be warned though, I will not draw boulder class, nadders, scuttleclaws, deathgrippes or groncicles. I can't get their heads right.

I CAN have a go at drawing humans, even though I'm not particularly good.

Examples can be found on my DeviantArt page.


For stories

I will write a lot of genres: fantasy, sci-fi(ish) and steampunk are just some of them. I will not do extreme horror or fluff. It's best to come armed with as much info as you can so I can do the best I can.

Story length depends on the story (obviously) but it's usually between 400-1500 words.

My scribbles can be found on Quotev and Wattpad.


PM me if you would like art or writings, or I can be found on Facebook Messenger at Flitt Locke and Discord at Flitt Locke#7968

Silver manipulated my subject -_-

Oof, I've re-read my old stories and while I can't say I completely hate them.... I definitely needed to improve on characterization and proper story planning. :'T

 

At this point I can't write off the top of my head anymore- every single beat of the story has to be plotted out entirely before I start writing, otherwise I get lost trying to make stuff up as I go along. I guess that allows for less creative freedom during the writing process at times, but it makes the story more rigid and easy-to-follow as a whole, and rewrites are a thing, so... Yeah, completely agreed. Write things down. x'D
