First off a congratulations to anyone who recognises where I got the title from. Anyway my first blog post has so far gotten no replies, so I can only assume I've done something untoward. Was it the futanari reference? It was wasn't it. They can stop if need be. Anyway to play it safe I thought I'd do something focused on writing, namely the juggling of plots.
I'm not really one for planning when it comes to writing. When most people do brainstorming they actually go through a moderately organized process. Not me. It's quite literally a storm going off in my brain. Plot ideas strike me like lighting bolts and I rarely write anything down aside from the story itself. I've tried but to be honsest I'm just too scatter brained for that sort of thing. Yet despite this I've come up with a fairly complex plotline. I have three main plots going on at the moment; The major one, involving an assasination and a necromancer on the run from the law; A less actionpacked section detailing political manipulations and a newly started subplot that will involve attempted kidnapping. And the scene I'm writing right this minute is promising to develop a previously minor character into a fairly major one. I've also got several chekhov's guns planned (for those with a life, chekhov's guns are seemingly throwaway references that later become important.
I'm not really sure were I'm going with this. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm constantly amazed by writers like Robert Jordan and G.R.R Martin for coming up with these intricate plots. And now I find an intricate plot (though perhaps not quite that intricate.) forming quite easily. Obviously I need to work on writing style and I'm sorry if I'm offending anyone or appear to be boasting. Anyway I guess my point is... I dunno. Feel free to discuss in the comments whether or not you share my experience.
