Up For Air

84,726 words.

And that's the PLOT written.

Now I go back to the very start and write the STORY. The story is different from the plot. The plot is everything that has to happen at certain points— the plot is the writer inflicting his will on the book. The story, however, is how we get to the plot. The story is what drives the characters forward. The story is what captivates US, the reader.

Naturally, there's a whole heap of overlap between the two. A lot of the time, plot is story and story is plot. But not ALL the time. And for this one, the war book, I needed to get the plot hammered into shape before I start to lather on the story.

Now I get to spend time with Val and her family. Now I get to write about Scapegrace and Thrasher. Now I get to have fun and make jokes.

If there's one thing I don't want, is to have a less-funny Skulduggery book. I like it when they're funny. The danger, as Val gets older and the books get darker, is that they lose their humour. I haven't read the first few books in a while, but I'd imagine there are a lot more jokes per page in the early ones than the later ones. I expected this, but there is still a certain ratio I have to keep. Even though you Minions respond to the emotional beats of these stories as they get more mature, no one is really wishing for a joke-free book, are they? Where's the fun in that? So now I go back and make sure that no matter how grim things get (and they DO get grim) or how dire the situation becomes (and it DOES become dire), we have enough jokes and laughing-in-the-face-of-death to see us through the darkness and out the other side.

Nice of you, really Derek. Wait until I'm in an airplane somewhere over Montana!

Hiya all! There's Internet connection in this room!

Blame me for what now? [Goes to read MC, brb]

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

I dedicate this page to Book 8 and BECKY

Book 8 because it'll be awesome and all and also because Im gonna be in it and i personally hope i explode Ireland

To Becky because she's annoying Derek for me and also because Becky is awesome!

Derek, I am not gonna dedicate to you because you SHUNNED ME ON TWITTER *five minutes pass* Okay! I dedicate to Derek because he is Derek and is mental like me!

Alastair Cruciatus said...

HI FABI!!!!!
Yeah, so my best friend Marina wrote this last chapter- she is now a character. And she will be the only comic releif you get in my sub-plot, so enjoy her!

Anonymous said...

[Takes a breath from the MC chapters.] Hi, Zaf!

I did read your chapter, it was good, can't wait for more!

Distant, typing up what I wrote on the plane.

Willow Von Stratton said...

The chapter is really good! ^^

Anonymous said...

Hi, Ari!

Comedy is good. [Nods]

Luciana said...

I'm going to go. Try to get some sleep... I barely got any last night and I'll probably get barely any tonight, as well...

Night, guys...

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Nice ded, Zaf. Embrace your inner lunatic. Fun times gauranteed!

Fabi- she just responded back to your comment. She's going to make my story very... Interesting...

Willow Von Stratton said...

goodnight luciana

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

*laughs*

Derek is hilarious I love him he told Becky she had Serpine's dirty towel on her head

I think I nearly died of laughter

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Night, Luci!!

Can I just ask what people thought of this line? "AND WHO THE **** IS THIS PALE MAN?" *carefully avoids swear* My friend, however, has no such hesitations.

Anonymous said...

Ok, Aretha!

Night, Luci!

Willow Von Stratton said...

The line too me is somewhat funny, but i'm picturing someone saying it :p

Anonymous said...

Your story will indeed be...interesting. I have this really weird, random twist coming up. I have to check it with someone first, though. Hmm... This is crazy! [Refers to some of what self wrote]

NEW MC CHAPTER

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*reads comments* "Mallory is quite evil"

A. Aww, thanks! *is being serious* ;)

B. Having Bloglandians refer to me by my real name is weird... *shudders*

Anonymous said...

Read and commented, Zaf! Nice one!

Anonymous said...

When real life and Blogland mix, it does get weird. Sorry, Aretha.

And you're welcome. [Grins]

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Wow, I'm sorry I pointed that out... Actually comparing the two is even worse... *shudders again*
Do not apologize, however. There is nothing to be sorry for. *grins back*

Zaf- that was a great chapter! Though I do question the wisdom of becoming pregnant in the midst of a war... I know it was my fault, but that didn't work very well for you last time...

Unknown said...

Sweet, this sounds very interesting

Anonymous said...

Ari, would you mind reading over the Raeza/Faeris draft? I'm not sure I should publish it, I think I'm being too sidetracked by my new subplot that's sort of pointless history.

And ok.

Anonymous said...

Also I can't really see what I'm doing on this tiny screen...

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Sure! I'll go over your chaper for you! Is it in a draft already that you want me to read, or is it something you will email me?

Anonymous said...

It's the draft 'Suitcase of Memories.' I'm starting to feel like the entire Raeza-subplot was a mistake...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Zaf is gonna have fhe child because she will

Anonymous said...

Well, at the very least, it makes the plot interesting.

Hope Ari doesn't kill this one!

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Ari is gonna die if she kills this one and if Derek reads MC he'd be amazed

Anonymous said...

Well, I wouldn't want to be in Ari's shoes if she tries it.

Derek reading the MC is too...I'm not sure what, exactly...to contemplate.

Willow Von Stratton said...

It's official I'm going to Germany in August, yay!

And hello everyone

Anonymous said...

Hi, Willow! Congrats!

Willow Von Stratton said...

thanks, the only reason why I'm going in because I have a friend who is in a band and I haven't seen him in a while

Anonymous said...

Well, I hope you have fun.

I'm going here now. That is all. Oh, and the Field Museum either Monday or Tuesday. Tomorrow is family reunion day, and since I don't know any of them, it isn't really a reunion. More like 'Meet all the people who will be using their being-in-our-familyness for evil purposes when my little sister is famous' day.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*finishes reading* Wow, that was really good... How on Earth could it be a mistake?!?! Well, I suppose I don't know wheter or not it will mess up your plot in the future, but it's awesome!

Willow Von Stratton said...

Your sis wants to be famous? She so totally should! Even ifI don't even know her :p

I've been to Germany before and it's ok when you first go, but Thomas (the friend I'm visiting) visited me last so I thought I'd be nice and go visit him, plus he's performing in Germany in August, so it's the only reason why I'm going there.

Anonymous said...

Thanks. I don't exactly agree with you, but I don't see a way to fix it, either. I guess I'm publishing it, then.

Anonymous said...

She doesn't particularly care about being famous, but she will be. She's just that awesome. And I'll tell her you said that! XD

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Oh my gosh, I would be so rediculouly unbelievably happy if Derek read MC! That would be just... Just... Wow... I hope he would approve of my pshychological torturing of my readers. Though he would say I need to put some humor into it. I need more "jokes and laughing-in-the-face-of-death to see us through the darkness and out the other side."
That's why I love Derek Landy.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Damn Serpine is a traitor to Mevolent

What I would give to ask Derek what Serpine did

Problem: Derek hasnt shown his little Irish butt in the comments in ages....and he shunned me on Twitter when i was out of the car

Willow Von Stratton said...

It would be awesome Aretha.

Yes, tell her! My sis wants to be a singer, and she doesn't have that bad of a voice either.

Anonymous said...

I would shriek and run away if Derek read the MC. It'd just be...scary.

Either that, or I'd jump up and down, grin, shriek and run away.

I'm not really sure.

Anonymous said...

Singer? That's awesome!
I sing a bit... I'm not particularly good, but it's relaxing.

My sis is a Martian. She is sitting next to me, and that is what she actually told me to say.

Lavender Hope said...

I bet Derek does that on purpose. He knows when we have to move a page of posts back and /then/ he makes a new post.
Yay for funniness! :D

Not here. Just a quick one comment for now. Bye!

Willow Von Stratton said...

Night Zaf

Be a singer Fabi! wait r u an Ameriminion I forget. Pretty anyone in America can become a singer, half the time some singers don't even sing good but they're famous.Yay for the martian! Lol, if she's a martian then that makes me an intelligent zombie, like in warm bodies! :p

Anonymous said...

Yeah, I'm an Ameriminion. I'm Washingtonian.

And there's a recording of me singing on my blog if you want to hear.

And there's too much stuff I should be...

She is indeed a Martian. I double-checked. That is not to say she won't have changed her mind tomorrow.

Willow Von Stratton said...

Your singing is probably loads better mine, that's a fact. And martians really are awesome

Anonymous said...

I have to go now...

The most cryptic explanation is 'the fat cat sat on the mat.'

The least cryptic explanation is 'my grandparent's cat keeps trying to get me to pet him and I think he might be going to eat my iPod (???!?!?!??!??)

I guess he isn't technically on a mat, or sitting, but it all rhymes.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Night, Zaf! Tell your sister martians are awesome.

Willow Von Stratton said...

And as soon as I say that, the cat totally loses interest and discovers Neli. She agrees, and says that's why she is one. (Neli is my sis's taken nickname)

Quick change of topic, but does anyone have any suggestions for an interesting endangered animal I should study?

Hm, is it weird to actually like nightmares? I always have one every night and enjoy them, since it's like my own mini horror movie I'm in

Study endangered sealife creatures! Can't think of any at the moment though

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

NIGHTMARES ARE THE BEST.
They're so much fun to watch and stuff. :D
But I think my dreams are other people's nightmares, so I don't know if they'd count as nightmares...

Some type of Aussie snake... Eastern-brown is one... Right?

Sure they do! if it's still negativity in the fun zone, then yes it's a nightmare!

My dreams are odd. At least mom thinks they are. She doesn't have much of an imagination, though.

I fit in my usual bed, at home. My mom made sure to pick a tall one, even though I got it when I was like 5-6-ish.

I don't know what classifies as endangered anymore...apparently manatees are just 'vulnerable,' otherwise I'd suggest them.

those are awesome bunnies! I had a weird dream once I was in a grocery store parking lot riding inside a shopping cart and werewolves were chasing me throughout the whole parking lot :p

My typical dream:

I am bicycling downhill to Anna's place, because she has decided not to hate me anymore. I notice hers and her sisters' bicycles lined up in the driveway, then this car with an upside-down B in the license plate comes up and the people inside steal Anna's and her sisters' bikes. They threaten me and tell me not to call the police, but I know something they don't. I go over to an ice cream truck and tell the plain-clothes police inside to go catch the thieves.

OR:

I am shipwrecked on an island and really need a drink of ice water. This dude in a beard says "no rubies, no water" so I follow Maya (fictional dream character whose name was Maya for some reason) to this camp for people who cant pay and we overthrow the dude who wanted rubies.
