Return to writing

Post by MacGyverGod » Sun Aug 19, 2018 3:22 pm

I just posted this on the MacGyver Online forums. I thought I might post it here as well even though I've only been here for like a year and a half. The stories I'm talking about you can find and read on MacGyver Online but they're like somewhere deep down in the fanfic cellar and rewrites are on the way. Below follows the same message I posted on the other forums. It's about my current writing plans. Soon I will also post my stories here.

Over the past six weeks or so, I finally started to write again for the first time after an 8 to 9 years hiatus. An unintended hiatus, I might add. The biggest obstacle was my fulltime job at the time. There simply was no time to write anymore and my inspiration tank was dried out. Due to many other real-life situations my writing hobby ended up in limbo for the longest time. As a kid in high school I had this dream of becoming a movie director once, a thought I held onto to get out of school and partially fulfilled that dream in fanfiction writing. Seeing the whole story in my mind, writing it down and scoring it with filmmusic to enhance the reading experience, as if it was for a real movie.

During my high school career I wrote three major stories: Family in Agony, Lost Gold in the Ocean and A True Prisoner of Conscience. That last of which was a rewrite of the first. Afterwards I wrote When The World Changes and Friendship Broken Apart. By the time I grew out of the hobby I was writing Children of the United Nations mostly out of guilt of a part that I deleted from When The World Changes. Originally Children of the United Nations was supposed to be the second story, I would write but for some reason it never happened. Anyway, in the past six weeks I took it up again and wrote almost 40 pages from where I left off. I feel like I finally have it back under control to write regurlarly and I have noticed on how some scenes seems to come off really spontaneous like.

With this progress I decided to finish Children of the United Nations and rewrite Family in Agony and A True Prisoner of Conscience at the same time. So that'll be a rewrite of a rewrite of the original story using elements of both versions. I will also rewrite Lost Gold in the Ocean. Something I have been thinking about for the past few days and read my original version which was a MacGyver/Bad Boys crossover. I had a few ideas of either taking the story to L.A. and make it a full MacGyver-cast only story set at home, or either taking it to Hawaii and make it the MacGyver/Magnum crossover, I always dreamed about. After all in the original story the adventure was supposed to take place when MacGyver was on vacation.

Besides the finishing of Children of the United Nations and two rewrites. I also have two new stories in mind. One sci-fi story and a heavy romance story centered around MacGyver and Nikki. I have big plans for MacGyver and Nikki and their relationship will become a major plot point in my stories whether it's in the background or right in front of our noses. I know some may not agree but I think she's the best choice to be his life-partner. But then again, that's my opinion and it won't have to mean that MacGyver can't be alone but she will have a supporting role.

When it comes to continuity, I don't think there will be much of that even though I think most of my stories will be set after season 7. There will be plenty of references, quotes, Mac-ingredients and he will meet a whole variation of faces. But other stuff like Pete's blindness and the death of certain characters may be ignored. So most stories will be standing on their own.

Currently I like to focus on finishing Children of the United Nations and afterwards on the rewrites. Once I finished the rewrites we'll see what happens next.

So these are the current plans, I have on writing and I do have the intention of making it happen. I'll just write on my own pace and I hope you can enjoy them. I will finish and revise the first chapters of Children of the United Nations so I can post them soon before I start on the rewrites. Keep your eyes out and hopefully enjoy them reading as I did writing them.

Thanks TVero and bftlovesRDA.

The romance story is merely an idea right now. Nothing has come out of it so far. It's early and finishing my current story and the two rewrites will precede over that story. It's not for anytime soon but Nikki does have her part to play in my current story and in at least one of the rewrites.

Right now I'm working on chapter 6 of my story and everything else is a side-matter for now. Now I let myself go with the flow and see where I end up.

Just came here to say, I made it past 100 pages and counting. I'm working on chapter 8 now. Once I'm past chapter 8, I can start working on the ending. Depending on how long it takes, I might be able to, after a revision, post the first chapter somewhere in the upcoming weeks. So stay tuned. ;)

Just wanted to say I finished the story. Finally, after all these years. It only took two months to finish it. Really strange on how long I took to write as a kid and on how fast I finished it now. I must've written like 60% of the story now. First, I'm going to take a little break before starting on another one, possibly a rewrite of Lost Gold In The Ocean or a Mac/Nikki story. I'll see whatever comes up first but now I take some time off of writing. Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming chapters in the following weeks.
