So I'm writing an awakening fic detailing the events of the future timeline before the events of the game with my own twists of course. I've done about two chapters and am in the middle of writing chapter 3 and I've just hit a massive wall. So far in the story Lucina has failed to save the lives of several people because of, what she believes, to be her own ineptitude. Some character interaction with Severa later and a risen attacks where she finds out that Falchion doesn't wanna work for her anymore. If you want to read the whole thing I'll put a link here. I have a vague idea on where I want this story to go but this next chapter has me stumped. I tried a number of things like switching perspectives, flashback, etc. but everytime the scene doesn't really go anywhere so please if anyone could give me feedback.
I don't know how many of you know this, but I've been trying - and failing - to write my own fantasy novel. I've been stuck with writer's block and world-building disease for quite a while now and I've finally decided to give actually writing the thing a shot. I've had several ideas that lead absolutely nowhere really fast - some of my early drafts are only two pages long, while one lasted a hundred pages before I realized I was basically writing a crossover between Fire Emblem and Fate / Stay Night, which was about the point I just gave up on writing for a few years and I am just now getting back into it, actually. I haven't really written anything yet, though, because I am stumped on how to write a good opening chapter that serves as an introduction into the world and the characters but isn't all just exposition and no substance. Any tips and / or pointers from you guys would be very much appreciated. If this is the wrong section for this kind of question, I apologize.
