Hey everyone, so what’s up here at the Sanctum!
Well, the big thing is I’ve wanted to add more ways to socialize – and try out a few ideas I had. So I’ve got the official Seventh Sanctum Tumblr – AND I created automated updates for it. Not only does it repost links to what’s at The Codex, but every day there’s a new, randomly generated story! Yep, every day you’ll have a story untouched by human hands, delivered straight to Tumblr!
I may also be adding some more things over time as I experiment, and of course reposting Sanctum related things.
I also played up our social media on the site – for instance I never really promoted our Twitter. It has a randomly generated idea every day, plus posts from here and anything I think to send down. So now I’m promoting it – join up!
I want to see if this provides some more socializing to the Sanctum before I look at other elements like a more active Facebook community or a mailing list. Yep, still working on that adding-more-social elements goal!
OK, with that done, the Writing Prompt Generator!
I haven’t done much with it recently since I’ve been pretty busy with work – and this takes a certain level of creative energy I just wasn’t feeling (sometimes it seems writing code is more workmanlike than building the data files and kind of relaxing). However the plan is still to get it working well enough and then posting it to get feedback and ideas from everyone. That’s my next goal, actually.
Meanwhile with Way With Worlds, I’m now working on a four to five part series on Worldbuilding and Sex. If you assume that’s going to be exciting, you’re probably going to be disappointed unless you really get into Worldbuilding. Then again you’re here. . .
