Alright, working on the first rough draft of my prologue. I guess I'm nit-picky, but does around 10-13(2500-3250 words) pages sound ok? I'd hate for it drag or be too brief.

Did you feel that some of the references were forced?
I liked the book, but some of the story progression pissed me off.
All in all an entertaining read.
#4968 to #4938 - dogziller ONLINE (10/26/2014) [-]
i read it like a year ago and now cant remember a whole lot but the whole things was like borderlands 2 just reference after reference. the final fight with the mechs were fun tho.

Weird i just finished this book last week. Can you give an example of what you're talking about?
User avatar #4949 to #4947 - thethirddoctor (10/24/2014) [-]
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the book. Ok, so here's my "rant"
I just felt that some of the narrative stopped up when he had to explain different things that happened in his life. Especially after he found the first key and the first door. I know that it's important to build the story up, making him evolve into a celebrity and all that. And then he begins to describe other things that doesn't involve the hunt for the next key. I felt like he "Lost" interest in the game and began focusing on the Art3mis-drooling and the Sixers tell off. This book was clearly written so that it could become a movie later on, amirite? I wanted to be in on the thrill of the hunt, not stop up and hear his beta conversations with girls and forced 80's cartoon references, even thugh I kinda enjoyed the namedropping of some of the movies and games referencced. I'm sorry for the angry rant. I read this last week too, and I've had some time to let the "drama" cool off.
#4950 to #4949 - yaribeapirate (10/24/2014) [-]
lol i'm so dumb, I was confusing this book with another one that's just called player one. Not sure how I managed that with the author's name right there. Sounds a little annoying though, I hate it when a book feels like it's been written specifically to become a movie. Also forced references are the worst

guitarassassin multidimensional adviceweed
so i made this world that i kinda want to explore in books, movies and games. in it i want to explore every trope of mecha, from battletech to evangelion looking shit. but it has giant monsters, and superheroes interspersed within it because i felt like it. also i made it work because its more of a "homage" to all these things i like. the superheroes either work for the government or are vigilantes no compromise. the kaiju are more like annual migrations type deal where nobody goes to the beaches in the summer months and the mecha range from super bullshit power levels to mundane stuff because i separated my world into 4 ages i call the agent era, super age, dead time, and titan century. the villains are other governments and it has a whole pre-ww1 and cold war feel with the government's flaunting their power by showing off their superhero team or some such. also theres a homeless batman esque dude because i wanted to make a dark vigilante kinda guy.

whatchu think?
User avatar #4936 to #4934 - adviceweed (10/22/2014) [-]
Some thoughts I had.

1) Work on your formatting, its rough to read through a brick like that. (unrelated to what you wrote, I know)

2) The 2 ideas are solid, but feel unrelated. Pick either the super-hero or mecha concept. Using both feels... over-saturated. Saying "because I feel like it" for inserting an idea is not something you should do. Everything you put into your story needs to have a purpose. Its a book, not anime, you don't simply have filler.

I personally can see use in either, the super-heroes rooted in politics could make a good read.(although that's prob been done in comics before). Alternatively, the concept of living in a world of giant monsters could be a really strong plot base. Like, what if man isn't the top species on Earth? We have to respect the god-likeness of these behemoths. What would the culture of the world look like? Worth spending time to think about.

3) While I know you truly mean only the best, take note that there's a very fine line between homage/reference and copying. Make sure you keep that in mind.

4)While its simple to say 'the villains are the other governments', think about what you mean when you say that. Are they truly evil, or are they sovereign nations pushing their own agendas? Maybe you can have it like propaganda to make them appear evil to the masses.

5) Of the two, I feel your description thus far would apply better to the pre-WWI nationalism feel rather than the Cold War brink of destruction feel. Gives it a 'positive' twist, rather than a negative one, if you will.

6) The ages idea is fine. But answer the following to yourself; in which era does my story take place? why? What's the impact of the prior ages on my characters/world? Where is it going in the future?

I will say that is difficult to write a 'strong' story that spans over (presumably) several centuries. Although maybe an ageless(wolverine like) character may make it work.

I'm out of space on this comment, but yea, that's some food for thought.
User avatar #4969 to #4936 - dogziller ONLINE (10/26/2014) [-]
ugh i just deleted all my progress on a big write up for you in response to your questions. this feels like shit now. it was like 4 paragraphs my apologies if i miss anything.
multidimensional
1) yes the formatting was shit im working on a write up for this kind of stuff.

2)the whole thing would feel like an anime at times, at others it would feel like real world politics. related to question 6 the ages determine the technology level and the shenanigans that would go on during them. also answer to the question is that most nations want to appear unique and special snowflakes . some can only afford an army of drones, while one wants to appear the bigger man and has themselves a giant multimillion dollar robot. plus mecha are few and far between in the super age/ agent era, with super powered humans and spies being the order of business. i have actually thought on this whole kaiju thing a lot and its developed a mind of its own. they're like invasive species for the most part, and the ecology of the oceans would be changed. one in particular is from an older planet than ours so its more invulnerable to higher levels of radiations making fallout no problem to them. and because of other reasons are invulnerable to other weapons. thats something else to talk about though.

3)yeah i know about this fine line. mostly i would want people to say hey thats just like that one japanese mango or stuff like that but not all the time lol

4)villains are actually rogue agents/terrorists/outside forces. aliens, kaiju, and demons are the ones who would actually menace the human population. most of the 'heroes' would be good at heart, with some of them being dicks. nobody would be a villain if they were labeled a hero in my stories, but some villains might be heroes in disguise.

cont. in another post
User avatar #4970 to #4969 - dogziller ONLINE (10/26/2014) [-]
5)yeah it would feel like war could erupt and kill everybody off sometime but also like everybody's trying to puff out their chest. later some nations would gain principalities like in pre ww2 and after ww1

6)the 4 ages would have separate technology levels and other things that would separate them. the agent era seems most like ours with most of the superpowered people being just like maybe stronger and can see for longer distances. the super age would have more traditional superhero goings on and more extraordinary demonstrations of power such as one guy who has powers determined by what he's listening to. then the dead time would be straight up post apocalyptic and have old technology resurface which would lead to the titan century. this would be the utopian age, with everybody dead/gone from the precious ages. oh did i forget to mention most of my favorite character will be dead by the dead time. anyways in the tian century most of humanity shapes up and forms utopian cities with guardians that are part human and part kaiju. they are the focus of the titan century with research dedicated to making them bigger when they are already bigger than most modern skyscrapers. then every body dies at the end in some massive mass extinction or something like that. basically all of humanity disappears.

i inserted this whole things that occurs way in the future after this that involves the last human trying to figure out where the rest of us went. it involves all the galaxy dying, and plenty of aliens. plus some pretty cool characters my friends made that they probably aren't going to use for anything anymore.

User avatar #4974 to #4973 - dogziller ONLINE (10/26/2014) [-]
haha i know. mostly i think its the publishing that i would have difficulty with . i would be writing most of it. one thing im worried about is actually character under/oversaturation. cuz the whole things takes place over a really long time. i dunno.
User avatar #4975 to #4974 - multidimensional (10/26/2014) [-]
One idea that just popped into my head would be to have several different series take place in the same universe, so have a series for the first age then a different series for the second age. That could work nicely.
User avatar #4978 to #4975 - dogziller ONLINE (10/26/2014) [-]
so fj just crashed for me. lol i lost my stuff i was sending to you.
anyway just saying i don't want to be afraid of killing off people and/or bringing things to a conclusion. having some massive pay off should be wanted and hurt the person because you've grown to care about these characters, and want to see them do something kickass before they die like kill off the villain. also no reloads lol they wont ever come back like in comics.

You are indeed entitled to down voting me but I'm curious as to why you felt the need to down vote every one of my comments a week after they had been posted for seemingly no reason.

Why are people still writing books when we already have a Courage the Cowardly Dog/Golden Girls/Lion King crossover? It's not like it gets any better than that.
User avatar #4903 - adviceweed (10/20/2014) [-]
I'm actually writing a book, not reading one, but I got a question, and this seems like the best place. Maybe some veteran readers experienced what I'm stuck on.

Alright, its sorta tough to write this, but I'll try. My problem currently is in my narrative. My story is about a single main character, who becomes part of a team of secondary-primary characters. (I guess most easily exampled in something like harry potter to ron/herminone)

I wanted to open the story with one of these secondary characters, to introduce the world in which the book takes place from a specific angle. The second chapter then goes to the primary character, to introduce them, and a diff. view of the world. The third chap. goes back to the char. from chapter 1, as to relay information (for the reader) why the events of the next chapter are going to happen. From the fourth chapter on, I intend to stick with my protagonist. I feel what I just described sets up a pattern that I don't entirely expect to continue. it also just sound unprofessional.

I went to an English professor with this problem, and they said that the first character you show a reader is generally who they'll see as the main.

I like how it is now, but I've been kicking around the idea of somewhat removing ch 3., and leaving the why to not be known until later. But I feel that leaves out alot of things I wanted in at a specific time. Alternatively, just switch 1 & 2, which is what may happen, but I really like the introduction I have set right now.

I guess my question is opinions or advice from any of you?
User avatar #4939 to #4903 - thethirddoctor (10/23/2014) [-]
What if you don't "introduce" the character. I mean, describe the events and environments. If you try to keep the secondary character nameless for the first chapter atleast, he can come back later, and you implement the same characteristics when your primary meets the secondary. I'm just brainstorming here. Might that work?
User avatar #4940 to #4939 - adviceweed (10/23/2014) [-]
I see what you're getting at, but I already solved this issue. That said, I may still find use for it..

I'm moving the first chapter to be the prologue, and deleting the third. I was going to do something maybe the inverse of your recommendation. Simply have the character's name, (and gender, hard to avoid tht), and when they're introduced in the main story, describe them there.
User avatar #4941 to #4940 - thethirddoctor (10/23/2014) [-]
Ah I see. Good thing that you figured it out. Quite clever too. The idea I described works better for a mysterious villain perhaps. I dunno. And that trope is quite outdated. Is this futuristic Sci-Fi or steampunkish? You have in fact intrigued me and piqued my interest.
User avatar #4942 to #4941 - adviceweed (10/23/2014) [-]
The first concept stemmed from direct cyberpunk.

It's a little less so as of now.
User avatar #4943 to #4942 - thethirddoctor (10/23/2014) [-]
Cool. You should give me an update once you've reached a milestone in your narrative. I sounds like you have skills, worrying about primary and secondary characters. A lot of the "writers" I've stumbled upon on this site is mostly obsessed with making their character cool and snarky.
User avatar #4944 to #4943 - adviceweed (10/23/2014) [-]
Thank you, much appreciated. I will.
#4926 to #4903 - juffs (10/21/2014) [-]
Maybe have the first character be a throwaway nobody that dies at the end of his chapter? If that's relevant to the story somehow
#4927 to #4926 - juffs (10/21/2014) [-]
Or, alternatively, you could have the first chapter/prologue be through a storyteller of some sort
User avatar #4929 to #4927 - adviceweed (10/21/2014) [-]

Turn the first chapter into a Prologue and remove your third chapter, it will probably work smoother that way.
User avatar #4913 to #4912 - adviceweed (10/20/2014) [-]
I was actually thinking that myself. I'm fine with the ch.1 thing, but I sorta had a diff prologue already and i feel i need the material of ch.3.
User avatar #4914 to #4913 - multidimensional (10/20/2014) [-]
I'm out of ideas then.

Something wrong, Mentosandcrack ?
User avatar #4907 to #4903 - averagewhitekid ONLINE (10/20/2014) [-]
Maybe try splitting the first chapter into a couple of characters instead of just one. That way you still are introducing the world from that groups' perspectives, but instead of just using one character and making people feel as though that is the main character, they will instead just remember the multiple people introduced as side characters.
I hope I didn't word this too poorly
User avatar #4908 to #4907 - adviceweed (10/20/2014) [-]
Nah, I get what your saying. That's not a terrible idea, but IDK if it follows my intentions. Worth noting though.
User avatar #4905 to #4903 - dogziller ONLINE (10/20/2014) [-]
dunno when you'll see this but i would feel that the story is taking place from an observer's viewpoint which i'd like. instead of following the ultimate champion you'd follow the ultimate champion around. this book i read recently kinda had that where there wasn't really a main character and the closest one to a main dude wasn't even the real focus. anyway i'd read it if it had a sufficiently interesting story and world building.
User avatar #4909 to #4905 - adviceweed (10/20/2014) [-]
can you elaborate on that?

It sounds like your referencing third person, but I doubt you actually are.

If you've not read the book, then yes because it is written in droog speak, so the rhythm is different. Also, the ending is completely different. But if you're asking if the movie changes your perspective, then I would say no.

Not if you read the american version. But the british version has a (totally canon) epilogue that totally chances the meaning of the story, but wasn't published in america.

So...I guess that´s it...Wolverine´s dead...

I found his death to be a little underwhelming. Yeah, it´s kinda understandable that he didn´t want others to be like him but still, dying for total strangers - other possibilities would have been better, I was really hoping he´d die protecting his students or something.
Still kinda sad, though, even knowing that he´ll be back somedays sooner or later. I´m really interested at how this will change the marvel world, tho, especially the whole relationships in the Avengers and the X-Men...as well as his students.

what series is this
im not too keen on how comics work
User avatar #4880 to #4872 - ljxjlos ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
"Death of Wolverine" - only 4 Chapters and it´s about Wolverine dying "for good" ( meaning it´ll probably take some years to revive him instead of some month.

they will revive him when they can make a huge amount of cash my doing it

It´s the fucking Wolverine. They can ALWAYS make money with him.

You´re still correct, tho - He´ll probably be back in 2,3 years, headlining a big-ass event to push up the sales.

can make more money by letting him die for some time

then slowly hype up his revival and shoot out a movie / series etc. with the release of the revival comic meaning a ton of cash

Wait, I know he died already, but is that seriously how long it took them to do it last time?

Okay, if you have not read the "Codex Alera" series and you are a fan of Jim Butcher, you are doing yourself a disservice. The first couple books start off somewhat slowly (kinda like the Dresden Files) but GodDAMN does the epic ramp up along the way. Check it out.

I read the first book. I have a hard time deciding to get the second book because of the writing. VERY early Butcher style is hard to get into. His more recent stuff is easy to get into. WHEN WILL WE SEE THE BIG APOCALYPTIC TRILOGY, JIM!!!! I WANT TO SEE SOME SERIOUS SHIT GO DOWN ALREADY!!!

I just finished the fourth book, "Captain's Fury", and let me tell you here and now, GO READ THEM. The series picks up in the third volume, and by the fourth, it ramps up the Holy Shit Factor by several levels, and gambits, betrayals, and displays of political maneuvering worthy of Dresden himself all play a role.

Butcher says that there will be about twenty books total in the series, so roughly speaking you've got four or five years to go before you get your apocalyptic trilogy, my friend.

If I wasn't already reading Witcher 1 and Project Nemesis, and have a huge backlog already, I'd get into it more.

What if I told you something potentially more awesome than a zombie T-Rex/necromancer death battle awaited you in the fourth volume?

....Be right back.

... But you'll have to read the previous volumes to understand WHY it's awesome.

Is there anywhere I can find a plot summary of the book "sccop" by Evelyn Waugh?

Whats a good website to read comic books on?
User avatar #4864 to #4860 - ljxjlos ONLINE (10/15/2014) [-]
There are rarely websites who sport too many comics. Basically you´ll have to either download them or buy them.
Only one I know of that has some stuff (I read Injustice there) is deadpoolsupplier on imgur.
