Welcome, my fanfic addicts. I’ve created this website to allow me to share my writing with you earlier in my process and give you a chance to participate. As I work on more drafts and eventually finalize each chapter, I’ll post it to this site first. When I finish an entire book, which will generally be 60k to 100k words long, it’ll be marked complete, given a name, cover art, and then posted on FanFiction.net. Once I publish a book, I will no longer change it. When I finish three books, I’ll begin posting the books on AO3 and Wattpad.
As many of you know, I’ve been working on rewriting the COTK fanfic that is currently posted on FanFiction.net. Among other things, I’ve significantly shortened the chapters and I’m aiming for the Child of the Kaminoki Book 1 (currently unnamed) to be around twenty-four chapters. Each chapter can become much more polished as there is less content per chapter to review and tweak each time (chapters range from 1k to 3k words long vs 9k-11k words long). With your help, I can more consistently catch grammar errors and lousy sentence flow in my writing.
To participate and/or preview my writing, you will need to create an account. As a member, you’ll be able to see and comment on drafts in progress as I post them before they’re finalized. However, those without accounts will not be able to access draft documents and will have to wait till finalization. Members will also have early access to throwaway scenes and attempts, and be able to give thoughts on them.
I’m typically writing six chapters ahead of anything I share publicly because this lets me work out plot inconsistencies or make significant changes as I go. You can wait to comment on chapters in the discord after I post them publicly, but any suggestions or ideas you give will be much farther behind as I will always be writing several chapters ahead. Right now, my system isn’t perfected, and the process will be subject to change. However, when I start Book 2, I’ll be leading by at least six chapters. The site and system are currently in development, and improvements are planned, but this is the system I will be working with until I finish Book 1.
I have some sources for artwork for the site, including potentially adding story scene illustrations, exclusive to this site of course; lots more to come as I figure all of this out.
Many of you have been asking for more chapters, and this is how you can get access to them now. When the book is finished, the current story post for COTK on FanFiction.net will be entirely overwritten with the new Book 1. I will immediately start work on Book 2 from there.
If you’ve already made an account, then you may have noticed that there is a ranking and award system. Those that participate more, commenting and the like, get more points (Yen) and level up faster. There may be prizes for those that level up the fastest, haven’t figured all of that out yet.
Currently, Shinobi ranks and chakra are still in development and won’t be accessible until after Book 1 is finished.
Well, what are you waiting for?
