    SpottedFawn replied to Legion's discussion How do you come up with your stories? in the group The Story Corner:
    It has always been my goal to write professionally, so waiting around for ideas to strike isn't the best way to come up with good writing content. Do I sometimes get story ideas I love? Definitely! And when those moments of inspiration strike, I make sure...

    Oh I know you don't mean me, Legion and I agree with you.  But I do see cases where people treat it like a 'have to' and it sometimes kills the story, you know? I'm just saying people shouldn't be so preoccupie...

     I think I originally started writing with the same mindset, back when I started Cursed Tribe. In theory, when I reflect back, I could have made a mistake of making the main character born before the events of Skyrim, thus forc...

    And very good advice there, Lis. Lot plotting is required, maybe even more than with your own original story, would you say?

    I would say definitely, Karver. With a retelliing, I am constantly fixing illogical plot points, mistakes made by Bethesda fo...

    Teineeva said:I'm afraid that's just how Skyrim is written, to begin with. Both areas are very much separate in the game and have no real connection to each other story-wise. I think that's actually a big problem with retelling in Bethesda games;

    I rather have my own set of story set in TES, or FO world than the all known Dragonborn/Survivor with the main story.
    I leave the re-telling to other people who can write it better than me. I also find it a bit boring and tend to avoid reading those, to...

    So, how do you approach the retelling? 

    I don't. I prefer to tell stories altogether unrelated to any stories that have already been told. I'll usually date my pieces by alluding to events, e.g., " High King Ulfric," but that's as ...

    I think retelling can be extremely hard to do. You have the expectations of the original story and you have the pratfalls from the original story that you need to either avoid or deal with. It isn't just slapping your character on ...

    I personally can't say I'm a great fan of retelling myself. SoB, for example, is almost devoid of it. I use a lot of the world FO4 presented us with but that's it. I barely cover any quests (Once in a Blue Moon being the most notable case) and when I visi...

    So, how do you approach the retelling? If you had to write the retelling of Solstheim how would you do it? Stretch the time or maybe have several characters that do each of the things?
    Well Straag Rod does stretch it out. It is roughly similar in time fr...
