So a small update on the last posting ‘Writing With an Outline’, I finished outlining the chapters for my Dragon Age: Origins fanfic, as well as my Dragon Age II fanfic. The DA:O fanfic has 78 chapters planned out now, while the DAII fanfic has 105 chapters.
(And both with possible sequels that may or may not be as long)
While I am going to have to see how this will translate into my writing, I actually think I like this very basic form of outlining that I did. I don’t give an itemized list, but a summary of the chapters.
So far it’s not a bad idea, but I am concerned that I will get bored with writing them now that I know whats going to happen in each chapter. Even if it is basic. I suppose we’ll see.
I’m aware that it will be much different, however, when the story is my own and I don’t have a timeline already pre-determined. But it’s a start, and an interesting one at that.
