January update (21/1/22): Happy New Year everyone!
I wanted to drop by with a short note to let everyone know how things are, and also check in- hope everyone’s having a great 2022 so far!
When I was doing mandatory New Year’s reflection while watching the fireworks, I made a mental note to tell everyone who has read or commented or liked this little project how much I’m enjoying the process so far, and how grateful I am to be part of this community. So, thank you!
What to look out for: I hope to update College Tennis next month (~15 Feb, barring any catastrophic delays), and the sub-chapter will include:
- A 3-set challenge match with Emerson, which you can either win by a whisker, or thrash/get thrashed. (achievement: “beginner’s luck” - up for grabs)
- Pick out music for Thalia’s party playlist, play “truth or dare” at the party with Mike and a bunch of his friends
- Repeat your win (or avenge your loss) against Emerson in a game of beer pong (achievement: “all night pong” - up for grabs)
- Sneak out to the rooftop of your residential college with a bottle of wine with a complete stranger (achievement: “stargazer” - up for grabs)
And of course, as-yet unintroduced Guillaume/Genevieve will be present for some portion ( ) of point 3-5.
As of now, the game is already standing at around 30k words (though this will be significantly less in a playthrough), so I expect the total update will be roughly 50k words.
Alrighty, until then!
Some extra updates (unrelated to the game)
Guess what! My ex materialised back in my city, and although it’s definitely not something that took me by surprise (we’d talked about what that would mean on more than one occasion), but I guess nothing really prepares you for what’ll happen when these things actually happen. Best laid plans of mice and men and all that.
On the not so complicated side of things, my day job picked up (the December chill mood vaporised). Which means writing is often the thing that gets dropped, between pulling long hours and spending enough time with family and friends/getting enough sun/fun on the weekends.
That was a long way of saying: I shall be realistic about how fast I can write (not to mention time spent editing/re-writing), and updates will likely not be as fast as they were in Nov/Dec. But I am well and I am happy and I hope you all are too
Aight, bye for real now, and as always, stay well and hit me up here/via tumblr anytime!
