NNWM 2005 Thoughts

Joys: It's always good to write again, even on a crap little story like Gemini. I love writing, and I love the process, even if I'm not that great. It was very strange writing this story almost completely blind. I usually have some idea of where the story is going when I start something, but I was absolutely clueless this time out, but it was quite the experience. Also loved sharing it here for everyone to read in its entirety. I've never been big on sharing my fiction, since I know I'm good, but lacking in areas, and always feared criticism. There was something freeing about just laying all my cards out on the table. Having everyone not saying anything helped. ;) Loved the feedback I did get though. And finally, completing my first story in...forever. In past years, I've finished NNWM, but never the story that sprung from it. That felt good.

Regrets: Not having a clear plan when I started. I forumlated a semblence of one about halfway through the story, but until then I was writing blind, and I don't much like that. There were a number of times where I feared the story was on the verge of ending, and barely managed to pad it out for longer. I also wish I had developed the parents more, instead of bringing them in towards the very end. I also had plans to drag the story out over the course of several days, but as events just kept happening in the story, everything ended up taking place over a mere 24 hours. Having the parents in it earlier, and holding off on the doppleganger appearing, if I had a more clear plan, would have lessened the padding some, and given better development to the characters.

And now I sleep, to write a comic rant upon waking.
