Printed version of "The Monster Below" Update 6 - Halfway done · 6:35pm May 28th

Hi everyone

Well, a month has passed, and from the responses in the last blog about the revision of The Monster Below, it's clear that all of you would rather wait and get a revised story than one that would be out quicker. Because of that, I will continue revising the story until it's been cleaned up from top to bottom. But as a warning, my writing plate remains full, so it will likely take another year, and perhaps even more until this process is completed. However, there may be an upside: if I finish the revision around the time that The Monster Below: Sunfall is completed, then it may be possible to print and ship all three stories at once.

Writing to-do list (updated 3/17) · 4:32am Aug 26th, 2016

Now that The Monster Below: Nightfall is complete, I thought I'd put up a list of writing projects I have in the pipeline, so that none of them slip out of my memory. At this point my primary focus is on getting The Monster Below revised and ready to be published (still quite a ways off), and doing a few one-shot stories. Doing novels is fun, but it'd be nice to do one or, at most, two-chapter stories that don't take years to complete.

This list is subject to change based on muses, ideas, and other unknowns.

To Do:

1. Finish revising The Monster Below (In progress)

2. Celestia one-shot (Link)

3. Nightmare Star one-shot (Outlining)

4. Luna one-shot

5. Twilight one-shot

6. Horror crossover novel. (Outlining complete)

7. Final The Monster Below story. (In Progress)

Excellent job, nothing better than learning your limits are a thing of the pass.

Okay, here you go! Because this was an improv class, this was just a basic outline that I expanded upon on the fly. Top part is reasons to destroy humanity, bottom part is why humanity should be spared.

Found the outline after temporarily losing it; I hope to have it up tomorrow.

You mean the one where I played an alien? I can, but most of the project was improved; I had a list that had the bullet points of what I wanted to cover, but I made all the dialogue up on the spot. I can still post it if you're interested.

Can you post the whole script/essay/paper please?

1912161 Perfect reply, THX!

Hmm... well, I don't want to spoil anything, but the overriding theme of the series is "How far would you go to get what you wanted?", regardless of the moral cost. Both stories start up a bit slow as the stage is set, but accelerate/will accelerate really fast as they race towards the conclusion.

Hope you like the stories!

Never heard of you before. Strange, seeing as you apparently write few, yet beloved stories. I think I'll skip Sharknado, and go straight for The Monster Below; the description and cover art makes me genuinely excited to get started.

Is there anything I should keep in mind when I begin tomorrow, without spoiling anything? Slow start, weak early chapters... things of that kind. Also, if I'm correct in assuming that flexible morality will be the major theme of this fic, it'll be a real treat for me. Hmm, seeing the cover of the sequel, maybe more of "when science goes too far", and in this case, literally playing God. Still morality as the theme, I guess?

I digress. Ima hit the hay.

Ah yes, it's this one http://www.fimfiction.net/story/259218/melody-of-dismemberment
It's probably a good story, just needs it's own cover, not yours! I noticed it right away and was like "That can't be right.."

Thank you very much for the heads up; do you happen to have a link to the story in question? (or possibly remember the name?) I'm going through the new ones, but I can't find it.

Just wanted to tell you a new story has taken your "The Monster Below: Nightfall" artwork as it's own artwork for that story, it's under the new stories, someone already told them, but I doubt the author will reply to them.

1612496 Indeed. Nightfall is starting to get good.

Thank you! That's an incredible honor to hold!

Gratz on another chapter Greenback, the sequel to The Monster Below is really taking shape. You're currently my favorite author on FimFiction.

Oh, thank you! I'm honored!:twilightsmile:

1303487 your story is far better than the move, in my option that is

1303398
While I won't say never, I currently have no plans to do so. I am, however, looking forward to seeing the movie!

So are you going to do sequel for sharknado?:twilightsheepish:
since the second movie came out today
