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.

Is that a new record? ;)

Record for slow maybe. I usually have both adventures written before the new year. Only Dave's writing the PA has saved me from being under the gun.

However, I should have added, LARP IS DONE!

Woo hoo!!!

Quite the accomplishment, since I know how much work the LARP is.

I got inspired to be a bit quicker on the ball for next year's writing and did rough outlines of not one but two different versions of Episode 19.

Beginning the hard work (getting the actual adventures written). Have about a month to do them, then a month to playtest, then a month to make edits, then TotalCon. Sure no problem.

STOP THE PRESSES!
Dave called me last night with a bombshell idea. So I have scrapped the entirety of Ep. 18. And am now re-writing the outline. It's going to be SO much better. Thanks Dave!

And progress as of now, Act 1 (so Scenes I-III) of Ep. 17 now finished. That means I am a quarter of the way done. Good on me.

Ok so now almost 2/3 of the way through and I realized I kind of fibbed when I said Act 1 (scenes I-III) were finished. Apparently Ep. 17 is 3 Acts of 2 Scenes each. So Act 1 and half of Act 2 was finished. Now I that I am finishing up the next scene, Acts 1 & 2 are finished.
