It’s been a long time since I read the first chapter, but the first paragraph made me remember what the story was about and what had ha...

Good day viewers,

I don't really have much to say, except that I'm doing really well, my exams were very good as well, so you'll at least know the long periods in between chapters had some use ;) Right now though, I'm a little more into writing than I am into school, so expect the rate at which chapters are coming out to pick up again.

I'm not going to stop uploading here, but I'm also thinking about finding some other, perhaps better (with no offense to DeviantArt intended) places to upload my stuff as well. Something more writing-oriented, maybe. 

I also wanted to give a long overdue shoot-out and welcome to my newest watchers Segabe, ShadowLegionnaire and Gurdim!

Cheers!

Hi there Deviants. So what is there to know about me? I've been writing for as long as I can remember, mostly spending my time writing my stories on RPG boards. Now, I've decided to finally start putting all my ideas into novels... so expect mostly writing from me. I tried my hand at drawing but have to admit I'm not very talented, maybe I'll upload a goofy drawing I did here and there some time or even pick it up again, as it's not something I have complete given up on (I'm bad at giving up...) :) My other interests include Music, Sports and Gaming. I look forward to meeting all of you :)

How's writing going? Had the time? Motivation?

I have the fight and how it's going to go in my mind, it's getting there that's proving troublesome. I know it's silly, but simply getting characters from one spot to another is something I often get stuck on. Describing environments also isn't my forte.

I understand. As for getting people from one place to anothe is so troublesome some amateur writers make the character faint every time they need to do it (and voila!).

As for environments it's a problem with choice of details. You can't make these up if you know little about ships or geology (cave formations), so perhaps it's a good idea to lift a few things from appropriate Wikipedia articles, get educational, you know. Or imagine yourself as the character - what would you notice first? Water so stale it's unclean? A smell of mold from the wood? Droplets from the ceiling falling on the deck? Fear the moisture rotted the wood and you could fall through? Echoing sounds that make you unsure where the enemy is actually coming from? Hearing things in the waves you assume are sounds made by the enemy (just like hearing the phone ring in the shower)? Fearing there are carnivorous creatures/fish in these waters? Fearing a stalactite could fall if shot and impale you? How unskillful the ship was put together - crooked nails, makeshift boards, unevenly placed boards etc. You could of course read up on such caves and see if there are some specific crystals that form in such environments. Or describe how the wavy light plays on the walls of the cave. Or describe what the shadows remind you of. Or the fact that a droplet falling on your back startled you/made you think you were hit...

I do often make little jumps, heh, although that's a result of not wanting to dwell too much on unnecessary details than the problem I have with transitions. I do try to expand my vocabulary, but the problem with descriptions I have is that, the more intricately something is described, the more difficult it becomes for me to imagine. While this is a personal, it also affects my writing (though I do like to describe armour and people in detail). Things people can imagine and relate to like the examples you gave are indeed the way to go.
