I know it's a bad habit, and I should stick to a story plan, but I find my writing always evolves by itself. The finished product is very rarely the way I intended it to be from the start.
Do any of you other writers write ad-lib, or are you more disciplined than me?
Happens to me all the time, and mostly I think that it is Beneficial to the story. If its flowing, its working
, I say. I usually start out with some sort of plan, but one that is subject to change at any moment without warning. :) Your great story Val:
I loved it. Faramir was very Faramir-ish :). Battle sequences and details very vivid That Haldon chap must have had access to plenty of arrows. I dont mean that as a criticism - I believed it completely.
I dont know if he would say "bless you" though. Maybe something more like "May Varda guide and protect you" or something of that nature.
I think the ending is great, but what would make it better would be if there was some reference to Callen at the beginning. You dont have to name him, just let the reader know that the story is being told by someone other than the postAuthorID. A couple of lines in the first person for Callen that is. Does that make sense?
Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. :apologetic-smilie: * 100. But I didn't think your story needed much improvement anyway!! :D
