So the Food Generator is getting close to a Beta release. How does this look?
I’m pretty pleased with it. Some more setup and vocabulary is needed, but I’m pretty happy with it. It sounds real.
If not always appetizing.
Judging by the response I should just call it beta NOW.
What do you think? Sound good?
And here you go, the Beta of the Reality Show Generator! My friend Ewen inspired me when he created a Reality Show game, and I figured I’d see what would happen when I tried it. Plus it gave me a chance to try out some techniques for analyzing data which I covered earlier – short form, very effective, faster, but kinda less exciting than winging it.
It doesn’t cover the huge range of crazy titles you may see as many are individualized, but I think it does a pretty good job. be sure to leave feedback so I can tweak it!
OK, so where am I with Way With Worlds? Here, let’s break it into bullet points to make it easier.
At this rate I don’t know what else to say except to occasionally post updates. It’s really in editing and making great covers – and yes, I’ll start a book section here as mentioned for Sanctum-related works.
A context to create randomly generated books? I’m so there – though it sounds like it’s got a way to go in some areas. Do dig the idea of a choose-your-own-adventure book.
Hope everyone’s doing good. I’ve been busy post-holiday – mostly catching up on all sorts of things I couldn’t do during the holiday. Frankly didn’t get as much done as I wanted, but I also actually took a bit of time off as I needed it. That holiday travel is not relaxing . . .
Reality Show Generator – Haven’t done much on this, but the notes are all there. Once I get a bit further on my projects I can see when I can do this. In theory it will go fast because the analysis is done. But man, that analysis wasn’t that exciting . . .
Way With Worlds – Pre-readers are done for the first book (well now it’s two books, I finished the split)! So now it’s time to integrate feedback and ship it off to the editor next month. Still aiming for a later-summer release.
Creative Paths – I’ve been putting my theories of creativity and how people create into a small book, a guide to understanding how you create and how to practice other methods. That should be out in January!
Other Things – Not too much up now, taking it easy, so keep generating!
I’m sorry, if this isn’t story fuel (or a Carl Hansen inspiration), you’re not trying hard enough – Man Arrested with 51 Live Turtles In Pants.
A few links for you creatives.
Came off of a busy well, so the update is I’ve been collecting feedback on the Plot Twist generator – and have a pretty healthy list. So when things calm down a bit, back at it. I think I got a pretty good amount.
Sorry this is tacking so long, but a few projects at work took precedence.
Some of our authors are a bit on hiatus due to other challenges as well. The joy of end of summer and start of fall . . .
