Apr. 7th, 2005 @ 12:15 am Having some doubts
Alrighty. I need some opinions on some things.

First of all, hi. I just realized I didn't introduce myself, so I'll do that now. My name is Danielle, or Danny...Or Mystic Moonblade, though I'm not known as that yet (new character)...My main LJ account is jediknightmuse. I made this one so I could join a bunch of communities for writing, but now I think I'm going to use it to develop my next story...

I write fantasy stories, and first off..I never seem to finish them. I can't get past five to seven chapters without getting a new idea, bored, stuck, whatever. This is the case with my current story. Basically, I would like a couple of people to read the story I'm working on (only have the first chapter up) and tell me if they think it's worth continuing. Unfortunately since I'm new, you won't know if it's really my "style" of writing unless you look at my other stories which can be found at http://www.fictionpress.com/~Jedidanny , so hopefully you'll still be able to help me a bit. The story is called The Trinity Chronicles: Dark Falling. It's supposed to be the first in a series, and is about three sorcerer brothers. The youngest of the three starts using dark magic, and basically their...physical items- a sword, a staff, and a couple of crystals, have to be hidden because he's a dark magic user. The first chapter of this story starts out with them young, in their 20's-late teens, and it's supposed to eventually lead up to the point where the youngest brother becomes known as the Dark Brother and...it goes from there.

It's basically from the perspective of males- it's not in first person, but in third, but the main characters are males, and since I'm female, it's a little harder to write like this. It's also kind of...darker than what I usually write, and my stories usually have a female be the main character. So...I'm thinking of calling it quits. I didn't have many ideas for the story anyway, so it's not a huge loss.

Another question I have is...I already found the community characterclinic which is great, but the process is probably going to be slow...I was just wondering if anyone knows of an LJ community dedicated to...Basically writing prompts, but character/world building specific for the fantasy genre. I know this probably doesn't exist...If I weren't already trying to deal with the amount of communities I've joined, PLUS my own that I created on my main account, I'd say I want to create one, but...I don't know. If there isn't already one in existance, maybe someone could start one? I'd be interested in helping out, but not being in charge 100%. I mean, I found some character sheets and world building questions that are great, but most of the questions are just...way too hard to answer, especially for world building, because it's the first time I'm trying to build a world.

Maybe I'm just babbling, but maybe not. Anyway...I'm going to use this account mysticmoonblade to develop my character and her world further...Post questions, ideas, whatever, and obviously friendslock the entries, so if anyone has any suggestions for a place where I can find a bunch of questions for characters, or...Heack, if you have the time to come up with questions, feel free to post a comment in my LJ/as a reply to this with them. Anything that'll help will gladly be appreciated...

I hate this feeling I have about my Trinity story because it's another story down the drain...But what choice do I have?
