@Kristina_NRE - Yeah, that cliffhanger was quite a big one Fun for me to write, even if it’s painful to read… mwahahaha!
I am still pushing to get Book One finished and into the Hosted Game queue this year, at least. Really trying! Would be such a major goal completed for me this year.
So, not as much writing done this week Only managed to write yesterday, but got 5000 words completed and finished one of the split scene scenes for Chapter Eleven. Really pleased how it turned out too.
Part of the reason it took so long was because I decided to have variations in the romance bit if you have high or low romance points (if you choose the flirt option). It felt too out of nowhere to have a close romance moment in Chapter Eleven if you haven’t really flirted with them so far- so the low romance point version is just much more of a subtle thing, where as high is more full-on kind of moment. I’m really hoping it helps it flow better for all playstyles.
So I did the shy and bold romance scene variations, then did variations in those variations depending on high or low romance points Yeah… gonna be fun and confusing doing the same for the others too now, lol!
I’m really looking forward to the love interest choice option, because at least then I can concentrate more on driving the actual romances and friendships forward, rather than trying to keep everything kind of more general, just in case.
But, away from the romance, it also feels like the friendships are starting to form a little- hints here and there. I’m really pushing into the proper story now too and it’s getting exciting! Still have 3 of the split scenes to go, but, hopefully, they’ll go as smoothly as the first. Probably next week I might even start Chapter Twelve!
And with the fanart lately, I was inspired to do another sketch of one of my playtest Detectives:
Diana Redford (I just realised I apparently like names that end in ‘a’ )- super nice and friendly. Kind of ‘kill-with-kindness’ person. Super quick doodle unfortunately as I’ve been rather swamped this week! I promise I’ll show one of my male Detectives next time…
Hope everyone is doing well and you all have a brilliant weekend! Talk to you on Monday
