Time for my update –
Recapping: my goal for October is to concentrate on one project; specifically finishing the rewrite of the “Origins” and Introduction.
My stretch goal is to write chapter two for this project.
I am happy to say, I finished my October goal with six days to go.
There is no realistic way of reaching my stretch goal, and I do not feel I can write an entry for @poison_mara’s Halloween Jam in this amount of time either.
What I am going to do, is to start writing new material, using the short-story I was going to convert into the Jam, as a way to honor Mara… the next six days should be enough for me to do this.
The story was going to be a “Dream/Hallucination” setting, but now will be another “Real life is stranger than fiction” moment.
Since my game is full of real life events that were, indeed, stranger than fiction, I wonder if my audience will notice or even question if this event was real or not.
One of the amazing things I love about my game so far is that it is sparking some of my alpha readers to look up the real life events and then coming to me to discuss my story versions.
I have been proud of @poison_mara for running a successful Halloween Jam and I have seen many of the participants really grow in their writing the last few weeks. Congrats to everyone involved!
I hope both @rinari and @Anathema are o.k. with me cheering them on and saying I am sharing in their joy at their achievements this month.
There are still a couple of administrative things to finish up for me before month’s end. Overall, this month was a great stride forward when contrasted with the month of Sreptember.
I still love hearing from everyone!
Until the 31st.
