I'm here, so I'm slowly getting back. Cassie and Heather have wireless internet, so it's fine to hang around with the laptop, writing or goofing off as Heather translates cheesy Japanese dating games for practice. Makes me want to adapt my longer stories as visual novels or something, though I'd like to know more coding to do something like Ace Attorney Investigations
. I can get Ren.py* to run on my computer, but something like RPGMaker won't run unless I get a windows emulator. There's ways to integrate ren.py with other Python codes, but I don't know Python. (Not that I couldn't learn Python...)
Speaking of stories, I have about 7,000 words on my current work. Here's what I have to do writing wise:
-- In the Shadow of the Flames
, due by the end of July.
-- Some work on the Untitled Firefly story for the Finish-a-thon, due mid-August. Which means I need to rewatch Serenity at least, and maybe another couple of Firefly episodes.
-- Something for the fantasybigbang
. Signups close at the end of July, and the writing period is 10,000 words due at the end of October.**
-- NaNo, but that's not til November.
-- I want to finally get my old webcomic down as serial fiction. Someday...
-- Short stories (or fanart!) for areyougame
, which is running in July.
-- Short stories for no_true_pair
, which is running in August.
* Ren.Py or RenPy is a set of Python code to write visual novels. (Ace Attorney
is the most common series outside of Japan.)
** I like Big Bangs for letting me stab at my to-do list. Which is too long.
