Something a Little Different

I am going to be trying something a little different. That being, that along with my Tumblr transfer posts, the kind you’ve been getting for a while now, I’m going to be posting chapters to stories. By that I mean, writing a bit of a story, posting it as a blog. Writing the next bit, posting it as a blog. Then, in the end — if the tale reaches the end, bringing it all together to make a full story. Almost like Author Conan Doyle’s serial releases of his tales.

Now, this wouldn’t be for all or even most of my stories, instead it would be for just a handful. But with that in mind, here’s why I like the idea.

  • It would A, allow me to produce content for you all.
  • B, maybe tell stories at a different pace than I have where it’s all of a story or nothing.
  • And C, get feedback, before moving forward — to help with moments where I am stuck.

If you have thoughts on this style of piecemeal publishing, let me know in the comments!

    I’ve always thought that this is a great model. I’m all for it, RR.

    Wonderful photo to go with this post, btw.

    Personally I don’t think it’ll work that great, but I think it’s worth a shot just to see what the results look like.

    I’m a huge proponent of the Punch Magazine model, however Doyle’s by far not the best example as he’s famous for writing Holmes’s encounter with the fabled Moriarty just to kill him off, and he wasn’t that pleased to cave to popular demand to bring him back (and it showed).

    Speaking of Punch Magazine, in contrast to stories I do for others, I like to expand the subject matter in my own ones. During that era what we know now, thanks to authors like Arthur C. Clarke as science fiction, they were called scientific romance, a moniker pinned to the genre as it was thought to be pulp fiction, beneath the level of a casual reader.

    That created the interesting situation where during the Long Century and the Belle Époque/Fin de siècle, writers held the belief we already have explored what was to be known about the world, and turned toward the “exotic”, like a wildling raised by wolves (yes, Maugli’s story is about non-white education leading to savage mentality, where he killed the village who abandoned him) a forgotten world in the Amazon, a hollow Earth, submarines, moon rockets… and yet it was the same era that held menstruation infects female brains thus they need guidance (though it did give us the electric vibrator that were sold in catalogs a decade before the fridge, so there’s that).
