Writing Progress

Want to know what the writer was thinking? Don't understand the significance of a scene? Or maybe you just want to comment on your experience (for good or bad). This is the place.

Got the outline done, and realized I hate the entire first act. Re-writing it.

Woo LOTS OF PROGRESS!
Background: Finished!
Acts 1 & 2: Finished!
Act 3, Scene I: Finished!
Now just Act 3, Scene II and all the dangly bits (NPCs, money, connections, secret society interest, that kind of thing) left to do!

Just a little reminder for myself.

While Episode 15 is finished, I still need to re-write 16 to incorporate my changes. And I need to get started on them since Origins is coming up and it should be done before then (so I have the option of playtesting it there, since it's the one I'm least comfortable with at this point).

Incorporated the changes, added in a few things and 16 is now half way finished! Back and at them, 16 should be done by next week or so.

Side project all finished and sent out (1k words for Don Higgins for a book/pdf he's putting together, I'll post the link when he gets it up).

Background for Ep 16 still needs to be finished, and getting to that.

Deb's new background is all sorted out and about half way written :twisted:

Had a quiet moment or two today and took a long look at the list of ideas I have for Episodes 17 and 18. Long story short, I got inspired and have the final acts for both outlined enough to start writing.

Writing is back in progress. Hald a short talk with Dave/Laura/Megan about various parts of Ep 17 and got to writing. Scene 1 is finished and Scene 2 is well on the way. Now I just need to playtest Ep 15 (which should happen next month) and make edits and year 8 will be ready!
