The end of one experiment and the beginning of another

06 Mar

So, Gehenna was nothing grand. Just a try at serial fiction, at telling a story that did some things I hadn’t done before. An almost total lack of violence, just winging it over the course of a week, but doing so regularly, having a post up on time, every night.

In some ways it was a success. I managed to stick with it, and it’s surely not the worst story I’ve ever written, though it wasn’t anything mind-blowingly amazing. So, the next experiment: It’s time to structure stuff.

I’m going to tell a weekly story, here. I’ll try to begin it every Monday, at midnight, and end it every Sunday at the same time. During the day, I’m going to devote some time to coming up with a plot-line and a general story-arc. I’ll try different methods over the next few weeks, from just one overarching plot to one divided into an individual, daily progression. I’ll experiment with having just the one complete arc and with having many smaller, daily arcs that are secondary to the larger one.

Either way, I think it’ll be a lot of fun, and I hope you enjoy it!
