Changing courses...



Finally... Writing a story can sometimes be difficult. At certain points, you have to reveal many hints of future directions. Some even far-reaching. Without being obvious, without attracting attention. Another nuisance which troubles me: descriptive passages.

I am lousy at combining dialog with descriptions. But nevertheless, I keep trying. And miserably failing. So forgive me if dialog is unbalanced. I can only assure that we are not even approaching the interesting parts. You see, I have those flowcharts and diagrams. <font color=yellow> [shadow grin] </font color=yellow> By the time I need them, I hope to improve it.

So here goes the fourth chapter, titled <a target="_blank" href=http://my.tele2.ee/lennier/b5/fanfic/shadow/contents.htm>Changing Courses</a>.

Criticism is welcome.

So where might chapters 1-3 be found? For those of us who have no idea what this is and have never seen it before. I wouldnt want to start at chapter 4, I want to start at the begining. /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif


*SIGH* nevermind. Click on the link, and it convienently lists the previous 3 chapters as well. Hopefully if I have some time at work tomorrow now I have something to read. /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif
Take your time. And be warned, some parts are lousy. My writing tends to be awfully moody. Some parts are readable, some might be gloomy and some enjoyable, but generally their quality is rather inconsistent.

When your usual writings are computer programs, writing a story is quite a challenge. I am ashamed to admit but in four chapters, half of the main characters haven't even been properly introduced. The other half haven't been introduced at all.
I read all four chapters today at lunch. I enjoyed reading them and can't wait until you have more. /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif
I didnt. No time aside from quick posts today. /ubbthreads/images/icons/frown.gif
Tomorrow I will have more time though!
And now... any destructive criticism? I am sure that there must be some criticism. The Shadow Nitpicking Team loves criticism. Perhaps our literary specialist Channe can suggest something? Did anyone notice something which could use improvement? Which parts were the least readable? Was the layout tolerable?

As for the next chapter, well... I have already chosen the main lines. The only problem is writing it. /ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif
I must admit I still haven't had time to read it. /ubbthreads/images/icons/frown.gif
It's been one hellish week (well, two weeks), and as I'll have to work evenings and weekends too, I haven't wanted to just skim over it.

Don't I know, don't I know. *shrugs*

People will simply have to wait!
Wow! The Centauri Regent! Good choice for madness! /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif

I liked the colors, and ... hmm. There's something about the opposing shadow and pastels.

Is that the scene where Londo's friend is about to get wiped out by the shadow-y figure in the background?

If so, that was quite a shot to capture.
Well, BlackStar, it's still a great shot.

He just looks like a guy you wouldn't want running an empire, doesn't he? /ubbthreads/images/icons/eek.gif
Well it's about frellin' time......

Like channe, I've been waiting for the next installment! /ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif
