Let’s see what I can cover this week!
Way With Worlds
OK, Way With Worlds is now all uploaded and included into a book format – which means sorting, then editing. It’s also looking to be enormous – try about 450 pages when done. That’s 120 pages more than any of my last books. It’s good it’s already basically done and in need of editing . . . but that’s a lot of work. So yeah, I don’t think we’ll see this one until 2016.
It’s going to be interesting to rewrite what is basically a rewrite, but I want to bring more coherence to the various essays, fill in gaps, and basically make it a manual for worldbuilding. So I guess it’ll be version 3.
I’m still kicking around how to do the plot twist generator – got a bit held up between work and having some dental work done, along with other chores. I just can’t find an “in” yet so if anyone has suggestions, please, contact me. Otherwise I may just take a stab at it and see how it goes – I just would hate to restart this thing after a lot of initial effort.
Thanks to Steven Universe, I’m also considering a “Gem” generator. Well a generator of “Gem-based alien techno-wizards” or something. You know, nothing truly openly tied to the show. But let’s just say it seems there’s a need among that growing fandom . . .
No idea yet what else I’ll write here, so it’ll be Ryan for awhile. I’m sure something else will get me fired up to write about creatively . . . . I just wish I knew what . . .
