@Pace675 Thank you. I don’t think that I’ve been working fast enough for my own satisfaction, but at least there’s motion and progress. Then again, each of my chapters could probably be a book on their own so saying ‘It doesn’t feel like there’s much progress’ is like saying ‘I’m only writing one chapter of a regular book in a given week/month’. Considering my current goals though I hope to pick up the pace this month.
@PaleHorse6 Thank you.
@Starsmore I hadn’t meant to skip entirely over you last time- welcome to the forums! Thank you for choosing my story for your first post- it feels good when I can coax another individual from the woodworks. It seems like you’ve discovered some of the more interesting lines of content in the story so far. : ) The section I’m working on currently will have a lot of content to explore that won’t all be reachable in one playthrough- it’s taking me a lot of time because there are so many different parts to it, but I hope you’ll enjoy it when it’s ready, and maybe you’ll discover some interesting bits.
And for everyone- work-work is my present concern, as it is the first ten days of every month. It’s always very hard for me to find any time to write during this time. This month being November, I’m hoping that I can get into the writing spirit and have a strong writing month. My most recent writing work involved figuring up the flow in certain sections here in the third chapter and further fleshing them out. I’ve mentioned before but, to explain again- the portion of the chapter I’m working on now involves seven possible choices, three times. Some of those choices will change in content depending on when they are chosen (first, second, or third), some of them will not. Each is its own mini-section, similar to each character having their own section in the second chapter, except more like choosing who to talk with in the van in the first chapter. Within each of these sections are branches and sub-branches and in some cases sub-sections. Some of these sections are complete, some partway there, and some not started. Additionally in the third chapter there is what I’d call two parts of a section prior to what I’m currently working on, with an optional sub-section. After I finish the various options in the current section, I will update. After updating, the next order of work is similar to what I’m working on now, where the MC will choose who to watch over them in the motel. I’ll work on each of these one-by-one, as they delve into the possibility of romance and are likely to have multi-part sub-sections (eg, possible conversations, romance or not, other surprises, ect). I’m currently undecided whether I’ll hold a vote for whose section I’ll write first or decide for myself, it’ll probably depend on my mindset when I get to that point. Maybe a limited vote such as between two characters rather than all of them- we’ll see.
quick hugs all y’all I appreciate all of you, just to let you know. Thank you for being here even when I haven’t updated in so very long.
