first and foremost, i really, really want to emphasize how much i appreciate each and everyone who is joining me along for this story – every like, every comment, every follow means so incredibly much for me.
it means so much more than i will ever be able to put into words <3
because of this, i really want to be more than just a blog y’all read and then never really interact with until i post an update, so would any of you be interested if i started a Discord server for this story? maybe then it would be easier for me to talk to you guys and ask your thoughts on the story and who your Traveler is as a person and what you’re expecting to happen.
i’m also thinking this might be an easy way for me to find Beta readers. i have a friend that i love and adore that pours over this story with me and gives me feedback, but it’s a lot to ask of just one person so i think this upcoming week i’m going to officially reach out and ask for a handful of Beta readers.
let me know what y’all think.
with the housekeeping out of the way, here’s the progress that i made on the story
words: 7,205 → 15,078 (+7,873)
my goal for this story is to update each chapter by parts, just so that it’s easier to manage myself and also so that i can push more content out faster. that being said, i would say that i’ve got the 3/4 of the skeleton for chapter 1 part 2. i don’t know exactly when i will be done writing, editing, and coding this next part, but it will for sure be within this month.
as for the coding aspect, i included the save plug-in and organized the startup and stats page, just for easier viewing for myself. i’ve also added in the option for an asexual mc and will include an option to romance characters, just for inclusivity and in the event a reader doesn’t want to romance anyone in this story.
in this next part, we’re introduced to one of my favorite characters. i’ll include a picture of him below.
next week goals
my hope for next week is that i can finish this next part of the chapter, edit it, code it, and then upload it. that’s my hope, at least. we’ll see if that actually works out the way that i expect it to. if i can get this done, then i will start working on the final part of chapter 1, which will be part 3
without too many spoilers, i’m wanting to include a horse in the game that you get to customize and make your own. i also want to implement an inventory system for upcoming chapters.
that’s pretty much it for now!! i’m always open so if any of you have any questions or prompts or thoughts, please send them my way - i love each and every one of them <33
