Hey guys! I will work on Chapter 14 of TCXDR soon, but right now I will work on a future chapter, Chapter 17! 😀 Reason?
Well, are you one of those people who daydream about their plotline and go so far ahead of the timeline that the current part of your plotline seems too boring now? I definitely am, lol. This can also cause one to lose interest in a story since it seems too boring. Most of the time the daydream plotline is way t0o exaggerated from the audience’s expectations and wouldn’t work in a final draft of a story, xD.
This happens to every story I write. 😉 When I am writing just one sentence, I suddenly get an idea for the future, even if it has to do with another similar story. Then I jump out of my chair and start another one of my random jogs around the house thinking about the daydream plotline. Yes, I’m weird, xD. Even stories that don’t exist (stories that I have ideas for but haven’t jotted down yet) have this phenomenon. I am not sure why I daydream so much about my stories, especially the future, but I am assuming this happens to other people, too! 😀
Also, you can’t really push someone to work on a chapter if they don’t feel like it, lol. Otherwise, the chapter will most likely be garbage. 😛 If they feel like writing something else (hence the multi-stories thing :D), then that is perfectly okay. So if I want to work on a future chapter, that is okay, too.
TRD and PE have future chapters already which I only need to fine-tune then I can publish! 😀 TCXDR and Harmony do not have future chapters so any chapters I churn out of my imagination factory will probably be horrible first-draft chapters. 😁 So to remedy this I will work on a few future chapters based on my daydream plotline. Then later on if the story goes a different route than the chapter I can just tweak it instead of creating a new chapter from scratch. Therefore chapter posting will be much shorter and I won’t have to stress myself out or you won’t have to wait for so long like right now. 😀 I am also working on The Runaway Demon currently since I haven’t worked on it for a while now, so I am fine-tuning some chapters. Alternative writing is also one of my quirks, xD since I usually change interests every once so often. I am working on TRD while I am writing this post and Chapter 17. LOL.
Chapter 17 was something I was thinking of and it is a very juicy chapter indeed since it reveals some hidden tidbits, especially about Andromeda. And even more interesting, it’s in Shiew’s POV! 😀 It’s mostly just a talk chapter and not much action, but there will be two people who talk about some stuff about Xim and Millan, and there are a lot of things Xim or Millan don’t know about, so definitely Shiew would know nothing, haha. But Shiew would be eavesdropping on them and learn some important info that no character we currently have met knows. 😀 Of course, she doesn’t put together every dot, but some things make sense to her and are even alarming to her, lol. Who wouldn’t be alarmed when they learn about crazy killer ‘Dromeda? 😜 Shiew also gets found out but there are no bad consequences because the two talking people are nice ladies, but they do definitely keep some secrets from her. Then Shiew shares the awful war between parents and Xim (and Leigh, too, don’t forget! ;)) with them because apparently, these two ladies already know who Shiew is! 😮 Seems too interesting not to write down immediately, right? 😊 Hopefully, things get spicier with Chapters 15 and 16 so Chapter 17 fits the bill perfectly.
(Just so you know, There are no pictures for the future chapters but when I do get to that point, I can just insert the pictures without having to summon the huge block of text from my already tired brain that had to undergo the hard process of Sims 4 picturing-taking! 😀 Luckily for me, I don’t use so many poses or have so many sims in one household (eight is the max for me) and my performance is fine (especially with the new hard drive), so it will be easier. but honestly, it is still hard for me to wait a few seconds to boot it up, load into the Sims 4 (the awful loading screens! Ugh, those are forever in my hate book since they always used to be a minute long with the old hard drive, which is also why I never left the lot before 😆) and take pictures, xD. So kudos to everyone who has so much motivation to pose every single sim necessary for their simlit stories! :D)
