I THINK I'M COMING TO A FIC REALIZATION
Thursday, March 09, 2006 7:02:21 PM
I was writing out a scene with Niska for the next chapter of my fic. It's probably the best scene I've written so far, spent a great deal of time on it and rewrote it once.
It occured to me that with revision the fic will not be nearly as trite as I think it's coming across. I really, really wanted to work in the Men in Blue, but why?
Niska is brilliant because we don't see too much of him. I loved writing him, I loved writing him so much that I had to go and write the second scene that I'm going to have him in after I finished the first. But it also made me realize something, using the characters simply for the sake of using them cheapens the writing.
I'm not sure where this puts me, I think I will press forward with the third chapter for now. I'd really like to get the scene with Niska out there and floating around. But after that I'm going to have to take a serious look at the first scene in my second chapter. I need to prioritize getting a handle on Early.
Comments said they liked the idea of his being in the story, and much thanks to those who read and enjoyed, but now I'd be doing a disservice to leave it as is. Well, I'm off to plug in Objects in Space again, see Early some more and try my best to capture his essence.
