Need help with writer's block on my fanfic

Recommended Posts

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.

If you're having trouble writing anything new for this fanfic, what I'd suggest you do is to start working on different stories. Don't try to do the same concept as the one right here. In fact, try using a different source material (if you want to do Fire Emblem, try avoiding Fateswakening; FFN is already saturated with this content anyway). 

You could also look to different source materials. It doesn't have to be a Fire Emblem game, or not even anime at all. Try branching out to different things so that you can find new perspectives of storytelling. With a story like this that you're writing, you could try watching "Rise of the Spartans", a Halo: Reach Machinima. It's pretty rough around the edges and it's also really long, but you could possibly get a few ideas out of the content and possibly apply it to your own writing in your own unique way.

Another thing is to write down any inspiration that you manage to get at any time of the day. If you get an idea out of random, write it down on your phone, a piece of paper, or even a napkin. The idea doesn't have to be in sequential order in the story, so you can write stuff down for later and adapt it if needed.

Nothing story writing related, but make sure you proofread so that you get rid of grammar mistakes throughout your work. Just a helpful habit that one should get into.

I'm sorry that I couldn't give you anything directly inspiration-wise, but I hope this helps. Good luck on your endeavors.

Different writers do different things, but you should probably make an outline of each major event in the chapter before you start next time.
