stepping back a bit

6 08 2011

I’m going on a minor hiatus, probably a week or two. I need to work out some of the plot issues with the rest of sf03. If I force myself to write it before I figure out those things — some of which may require retcons to earlier chapters, even — the work will suffer for it.

Also, I’m feeling quite refreshed from doing a different writing project lately… City of Heroes arcs. It’s been two years since I last wrote one, due to hitting the file size limit a long time ago, but they’re going to be removing the limit soon and I’ve been giddy as a schoolgirl over it. This is a nice combination of visual design, game development, and writing… without a lot of technical implementation needed.

Working on this helps my creative juices flow for anachronauts, since I’m poking at its plot issues in the back of my head, all the time. Staying too focused on it, though, just loops me over the same problem again and again, without resolution.

I apologize for the lack of timely updates lately. It’s tricky, balancing my life, my hobbies, and my creativity. I figured I should be honest about going on pause, so folks don’t keep coming back on update days disappointed. But keep an eye out… I shall return shortly.

Hurray for more City of Heroes arcs from you at least! I really need to get around to playing all of the ones you have on there… I need to find which of my characters is at about the right level for it.

Most of my arcs are L30+. Custom critters are kinda brutal until you get SOs.

But I’m trying to make more arcs that use standard critters, and cover a wider spread. Here’s a preview of what I’m working on right now:

*Grunty McFisterson’s Two Step Guide to Winning Respect 1-15
The DIY Crime Syndicate Project 1-15
Life and Limb 20-30
The DIY Weather Dominator Project 30-50
Crime is Art and Art is Crime 35-50
*The Copy-Paste Heroine Scenario 40-50
New Ragnarok City 50 Only (hellions/skulls access the well of the furies)

* = actually had these published before, but took them down to make room for other arcs. Stupid file size limit.

If I can help brainstorm plotty stuff sometime, just holler.

You have the best titles for these arcs. :D
