I signed up for the Poker Face
summer event over at Simspiration, and now that the challenge is officially starting, I thought I could post my hand of cards. I have been given five randomized restrictions, "cards" and my task is to write five pieces each according to one of them, and if I get all five done before Aug. 15, well then I win.
My hand of cards is as follows:
1000 words or less
So I hope you'll be seeing some of these soonish. :)
I'm also playing Alphabetia and posting picspam again, and slowly writing the apocalypse chapter. Progress has been slower than I had hoped (isn't it always?) but it's progress anyway. I'm currently on a little under 60 slides. New text comes out fairly easily, but I'm not sure if I'm happy with it; the beginning of an apocalypse is actually pretty booooring to write/read. Go to work, cross fingers for promotion, eat once a day, wash hands like a maniac, greet everyone who comes over (and try to explain to the reader why there's a horde of sims marching on the lawn, it's supposed to be the end of the world and it's supposed to be dangerous to move about), rinse and repeat. And then again, I don't want to squeeze it onto one slide with "and then he got five more promotions on successive days, washed his hands some more, met some more townies who weren't supposed to be there, and lifted the restriction, the end". And I'm a bit unsure on how the plot, insofar as there is one, should go, too. Oh well, I guess I'll figure it out as I go. The way I always do.
I've got a week of vacation left, and I doubt the apocalypse chapter will be out before it ends. I try to stick to remembering that I've made progress, and stick to trying to make a bit of progress every day. I'll get it done eventually.
