    To Fleur or not to Fleur? That is the question.

    In the last couple of days, I've finally began the process of moving forward with my writing. Hearing that may excite some and bum out others, as I have noticed that I can be very wordy compared to other writers out there. I think that looking back, even though I was introducing an original character and a new concept in "The Blue and the Grey" (namely the Royal Flying Corps), I really could have

    Two more chapters

    In the last few weeks, I actually managed to get a bit more of both "The Blue and the Grey" and "Danger Close" out there. I figure that "The Blue and the Grey" has probably two more chapters to go, but I really don't have a final idea for "Danger Close" yet. I'd like to finish these darn things, but the last thing that I want is something rushed, or just plain abandoned. I've read a story like

    Intellectual honesty

    I had an interesting experience over the last week. I had recently renewed a discussion with another blogger regarding (in a roundabout way) Princess Luna, and an alternate potential ending to the series that another writer proposed in a story. The blogger asked me to propose how this alternate ending would have played out, and I did, to a less than enthusiastic reception.

    Inspiration in the midst of a pandemic

    Today I did something that was probably way overdue, I trimmed down the number of stories that I was following. I wasn't that I wasn't still interested in the stories on the list, but I had to conclude that those stories probably weren't going anywhere. Some of them I moved to my favorites list, but others I cut lose.

    Bumping up the Numbers

    Having gotten the latest chapter of "The Blue and the Gray" out and into the world, I find myself turning once again to my other active story, "Danger Close". I'm thinking that I can make some progress on that over the next couple of weeks, having finally gotten a critical character a bit more sorted out. Which is a good thing, because I seem to find myself rereading a lot of my own work these

To Fleur or not to Fleur? That is the question. · 1:26pm July 10th

In the last couple of days, I've finally began the process of moving forward with my writing. Hearing that may excite some and bum out others, as I have noticed that I can be very wordy compared to other writers out there. I think that looking back, even though I was introducing an original character and a new concept in "The Blue and the Grey" (namely the Royal Flying Corps), I really could have used an editor to help keep me from rambling so much and help me cut to the chase.

But, it is what it is, and I don't think that changing it now is necessary. So I drive on, and try to allot some time during my day to read some more of the other stories out there. I did stumble on one recently that caught my eye, though it is certainly not for everyone out there, as it has the mature rating. I'm not sure if I should name it, as I don't want to bring the wrong kind of attention to it, but it involves a relationship, or at least a potential one, between Sci-Twi and Fleur de Lis. In creating this story, the writer establishes that Fleur had a long term interest, but was extremely uncomfortable about approaching Twilight, which was a surprising concept to me, and a delight to read.

Have any of you tried to make use of Fleur as a character? I've got plans to eventually get her into "Danger Close", but what about her works, or doesn't work in your mind? I do remember seeing her as a Crystal Prep student, but I wasn't impressed with how they drew her, as she reminded me a bit too much of "Animaniacs" character Minerva Mink, not what one would expect for a human character. What do the rest of you think?
