Not This Time Chapter 5, a chuck fanfic – FanFiction.Net

Not This Time Chapter 5, a chuck fanfic – FanFiction.Net.

I didn’t really plan for this to happen, but the series morphed itself, as my stories often do. It’s become the backstory behind the Sarah vs. Sarah conflict in my other story, Chuck vs. The Epilog. It adds a bit to the challenge, trying to come up with an ending that is triumphant and ambiguous at the same time. (Hopefully I’ll do a better job than George Lucas did with the Prequel trilogy.) I’ve had a bunch of ideas, actually, lots of good stuff that I hope I can do justice to.

Wish me luck.

Then maybe I can get back to Ghostkiller for a while.

It’s kind of a funny thing about tracking statistics. On the one hand they give you a sense of achievement, when you can see how many people have looked at your stories, how many reviewed them, how many saved them on their favorites list or created an alert for the next one. It’s all very gratifying, especially considering the lack of such statistics in the real publishing world. But (and you knew there had to be a ‘but’ coming) at the same time they also put a certain pressure to write the next story, when you see the rather sharp dropoff in the number of people reading. As other people post stories your latest moves down the page and then off the first page entirely and you feel like you have to post something new to get back in front again.

I have to fight this feeling. I was plugging away at Ghostkiller mainly to get it done by Lunacon, which I didn’t. After Lunacon I sort of took a break from that effort and wrote other stories instead. Chuck fanfics are good practice in alternative writing styles, and lots of fun. But now it’s time to get back to work.

  • @bpcooper I appreciate the movie, Mr. Cooper. I do for others what I hope others would do for me, if they thought my work was worth it. 4 days ago
  • Started off with La La Land, a great musical, with a Casablanca-style romance. 1 week ago
  • I also tried Vertigo. Not a great film. The bad guy wins, the hero suffers, the female lead loses everything. A wasted couple of hours. 1 week ago
  • Just saw a great suspense movie called Time Lapse. A trio discovers a camera that photographs tomorrow. Great acting, tight story, no SFX. 1 week ago
