Here are the questions for this week! I'll keep the questions related to the first arc for now.
1. Which character are you most interested in so far?
2. What do you think about the characters' pasts that have been revealed?
3. How's the world-building in my story? What do you think?
4. Which chapter do you like the most in this arc?
5. What do you think the Don's real motive might be?
That's all I can think of for now.
Sweet! I have a silly question, though: What do you consider to be an arc? A set of chapters?
An arc is a set of chapters that is one whole storyline which is part of a larger series.
I thought each chapter was an entire storyline
If it helps:
A chapter is generally a single scene. It rarely tells an entire story on it's own but instead shows a entire momet. A chapter can be an arc on it's own but it depends on how it is written.
An arc is the next step up and basically is a mini story within the context of the larger story. Anime are a common example of this. For example in one of my favorite anime One Piece which focuses around the journey of a pirate crew the overall story is about the crews journey through the world's greatest ocean, an arc would be a the crew's adventure on a particular island and the enclosed story at that location which is only a small part of the overall story of the show as a whole. However not all stories have arcs it just depends on how the story is written. Something like my story for example doesn't really have arcs since things continue into each other without any parts really being self contained.
Yup, I got the concept of arcs from the anime I watch, and that's how I wrote stories with my fellow roleplayers a long time ago.
So in the first arc, the whole story focuses on the Doc vs. the Pastor and his hunters. The second arc focuses on another villain, and so on.
@15aewar That's just a small part of the first arc. The decimal points are like my way of grouping chapters into sub-chapters.
In what chapter does the first arc end?
My chapter has been staying for a long time in my google docs, and it's totally finished, the pictures had been uploaded, the only thing was to arrange the picture, and I'm having this weird writer's block that's not even had anything to do with writing. Have any of you have this or it's just me being lazy?
Anyone know any good mystery simlits? Long story, i'm currently reinventing both my third and fourth simlit stries (losing ideas on them and there's only 3 chapters between them so far so not a huge loss.)
If by mystery you mean slow-building thriller, then there's @AdamsEve1231 's La Vita Bella, or my Shadow Over Newcrest series. As for traditional whodunnits, I haven't come across any as of yet. Although, that might be a really good idea...
