Campfire Tales #8 Update

lfneJason L Blair08 September 2015

I’m not going to make tomorrow’s deadline, folks. I am very sorry for that. I’m not hitting my weekly estimate, and I’m not happy about that, but I’m going to focus on getting better and better, writing more and more until I’m back to where I need to be.

On the upside, I have enough written of every scene that I know exactly how this one is shaped and what each beat contains. Normally, I do that early on but I didn’t this time. And then, when I finally did, I made some serious changes because the scope of it was simply too big to fit inside the Campfire Tales format. What I did cut will make its home in another episode, so it’s not a total loss, and this episode will be far tighter than it was shaping up to be.

I’m currently at 4153 of the 6000 to 7000 words these usually contain. This total is is way under where I’d aimed to be but I’m getting there slowly but surely.

Here’s some photographic evidence.

After the writing is done, it’s a matter of copy editing and creating the Monsters and GMCs, and laying it all out. (Though, in fairness, I create the Monsters and GMCs directly in the layout.)
