So lately I've been really killing myself with updates for the Points Between, over things that, after publishing, are monumentally silly. It took me two and a half weeks to finish the latest chapter because I was hung up on getting the main character downstairs. That was the first paragraph, and it's the stupidest reason in the world to be hung up on something, because the solution is to write "he went downstairs."
The truth is, the block was probably something else, and that fixation was just what I hung my hat on because I'm not sure how to describe it. But it convinced me that as I'm going along publishing this monstrosity I need to clear my palette from time to time. Which leads to this...
Because I clearly have too much free time, I'm starting a little superhero webfiction project. The basic idea is that it will only update once a month, like an actual comic book, and each update will be split into four acts (also similar to a lot of comic books). Drupal actually makes it kind of easy to organize this because they let you nest your books, so I create a "book" called "Curveball" (that's the name of the webfic series) and then I can create a page for "Issue 1" and then add four sub-pages to that (Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four) and if this turned into a multi-year thing I could even add Seasons and group issues under that.
But I'm not entering it into the WFG database because The Points Between is my priority and I really need to focus on those weekly updates. This is just to provide some relief, from time to time (writing superheroes is fun! Go figure!) Anyway, I thought I'd mention it here because it interests me and I like to talk about things that interest me...
Excelsior and all that!
This is the preliminary link, though eventually I'll be creating a landing page for it just like I do for my other stuff:
