I've been working on Sherwood Forest again- well actually what I've been doing is taking the scripts I wrote and rewriting them as short stories, which I plan on publishing on Smashwords on a monthly basis, as a sort of series. (Also I have renamed it "Sherwood Stories" because that's more memorable.) Things I have learned about in the process of turning scripts into short stories:

  • the need to choose a POV character for each scene (and shuffle everyone's positions accordingly)

  • the need to adjust scene placement for pacing reasons

  • the fact that some characters get dropped altogether (sorry Much)

  • the sudden and terrifying need for interiority when previously I could just put in stage directors and trust the actors to convey the emotions.

I've been pondering how I want to go about writing and editing this because I've never really . . . had to edit before? Generally my fanfic goes up in first-draft format but I'm actually planning to make people, y'know, pay for this. And I've never learned how to self-edit! SO: taking a leaf from my flist's book, have a poll!

Hello exchangee! First let me say that if we share any of the fandoms on my list, CHANCES ARE we have a few things in common; at the very least, we share a common love of these characters! A few other things I love, narratively, include FREEDOM, loving equal relationships, dudes who think their girlfriends hang the moon, femslash, baby idealists, idealism in general, and adventure! Obviously the ways in which these apply will vary depending on what fandom you're writing for, but they give a good basic overview of what my narrative priorities are.

In terms of stuff I don't like- "darkfic" basically covers it. I'd like to avoid things like rape/abuse/death if at all possible (obviously in canons like Hexslingers or The Killing these things have already happened, but I'd rather not read about them happening AGAIN) and kinkwise I'm pretty much vanilla. That said, I AM completely open to you writing a fic that would qualify for Night On Fuck Mountain, if the mood strikes you!

Dear Yulegoat,

Hi!

First of all, there's no pressure here; we share at least one fandom, so I assume we have at least some form of shared interest/shipping preferences. My only real hard rule is that I don't like angst or darkfic- nothing personal if you do! I've just had a rough couple of years, and I'm not really in a place at this point where I enjoy reading about people being unhappy. Like I said, that's my only really hard rule; I don't really have any kinks, so if you're writing smut (which I have NO objection to) vanilla is probably your best bet. If you want a really, really involved list of my narrative soft spots, you can read this, but you don't have to; I cover my individual Feels about my requests in this letter. Speaking of . . .

Hi there, scribbler! So I keep a handy list of Tropes I Like and Tropes I Don't for exchanges like this- you can read it here. Don't feel pressured to include everything- they're just suggestions! In general, I like fluff, cuddling, happy people in love, awesome ladies, and just people enjoying each other in general. I don't like angst (especially for queer characters- I get why it exists, but it exhausts me), death fic, or darkfic in general. I'm pretty chill when it comes to fic.

This meme is THE BEST IDEA EVER. Basically, comment on the source post with a lost of things you wish people would get into (books, movies, TV shows, etc) and in your LJ, expound a bit on what these things are and why you love them. People look at your list and say "I'll watch this show in exchange for graphics of this character," and the fandom love spreads!
