sickle_stories: (Ideas)
Coming up with ideas is really the least of my troubles when it comes to writing. I've got ideas a plenty, sometimes even full fleshed-out scenes. Plots, however, don't even get to be zombies. I can't do plots. In my whole short-lived history of writing, I've managed to write only one finished piece (All THings Copper), and that sorry bastard didn't need no stinkin' plot (from me, anyway) because it was a missing-scene thing. My original fic, Hero's Manual, doesn't so much have a plot as have a collection of random scenes somewhat connected.

But lately I've been having serious* crack ideas )

I have an even more cracktastic scene written out and it really has no explanantion at all. I'll try to get it on this LJ soon**.

As for all my other WIP fics, I reread through some of my Blinding Force fic. I found out I actually like it, despite some serious Mary-Suisms that have to go. Yet the overall concept was good, and I think I caught the glimps of a plot, which is most excellent. The fic touches on very interesting concepts, I think. Sure there's echo's of Whedonverses, like Illyria and the whole soul-concept, but that's innevitable. I've got a whole load of scenes written, but they need serious rewiting and organizing. My main concern is avoiding MarySueisms.

The fic itself is about... )

* As in, "lots of" "various", not "seriously written".

Recalling the Star Wars Ep 1 (TPM) tone poems* (also found here), I wondered about these two definitions/litanies of fear:

Darth Maul: "Fear. Fear attracts the fearful, the strong, the weak, the innocent, the corrupt. Fear. Fear is my ally." From the dmeb2.

Bene Gessert:: "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

From Dune** by Frank Herbert

I'd love to see Maul's face when quoted the Litany Against Fear. *evil glee*

* What is a "tone poem" you say? Why, it is a slave to this definition.

**Trivia from wiki: The original novel, Dune, was rejected by twenty publishers; it has since become the bestselling science fiction novel of all time, selling more than twelve million copies, including millions more of the five sequels.
