So, how's this story looking?

Oh sorry!

Yeah, I'm enjoying the story so far. I like your writing style too.

It's good to read something that's not the usual Jedi/starfighter pilot POV. That's why I enjoyed the Republic Commando books.

Well, it's gonna have Jedi/Starfighter... but that stuff will actually be downplayed... Once Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor comes out... I'm gonna focus on that... because let's face it, the ground wars are the least talked about when it comes to Star Wars... the stars get the glory and the dirt doesn't.

But thank you Drake.

I plan on reading it when I get a chance, honestly!

Also... I wonder if it would be easier to read if everything was in one thread...?

I find that breaking them up into seperate posts makes for a more casual read. Instead of opening up a thread and seeing a whole long list of posts, feeling as though I have to read it all in one sitting, I can portion it and read the parts one at a time.

On the other hand, keeping all of the parts of the story together in one place would make it easier for people just starting to read it. That way, they wouldn't have to search around for the first posts in the case that they get buried down the line.

Tell you what, I'll merge all of the Act One posts together. Winters, keep on posting your Act Two scenes seperately and, when that's done, we'll merge those too.

Perfect!

Here's the thing, it's the serial concept that you're doing great Drake, but I'm more casual about it. The whole reason I brake it up is so that way, it's more focused on single parts of the story because, as an individual, I tend to get side tracked. If I continously wrote it all, I'd still be on the first scene.

2). I'm lazy, so that way, it allows me to send stuff out slowly and kind of keep people happy... it's like some novels, espically series, you get a bit, you're content then you'll want more, so even though I don't have an auidence that's eating it then waiting for more, it allows me to write at my own pace (because I'm busy with work and school) and keep jokes or moments intact for a certain amount of time.

And Drake, perfect, what I plan to do is write these things in scenes, then when I'm done, repost it in a giant thing so that way if people want to read it, they can read the entire thing AND when it's all done and happy, I put it together and plow forward...

As for the Opera/Play idea, it's because I want something to start things off and set tone or location (Overture) then work on the full story...

Yeah, I think that will work a lot better. That way, the various pieces hopefully won't fall down to page 2 or 3 or something.

Whenever I finish and repost the finished product, I'll just ask a mod or someone with power to delete the rest... I'll just tug at their sleave and say "Mr/Ms/Mrs. [NULL! INSERT NAME HERE] *eyes tearing* Cwan Wou Deweet Muy Pwosts? Pweeze?"

I don't mean in a sexual way.... :roll:

I was thinking he could help inspire me, the way he helps you. :p

One of my characters has a hot wife, too. :p

He doesn't inspire me... he just tells me what he and his soldiers, I write it down in a colourful way, I get paid plenty of credits...

I'm planning on buying me a Imp Duce.
