This was a strange month for me. I’ve been struggling a little with motivation. Given NaNo is coming up, that’s something I’m going to have to work on for next month. So, I have a goal!
August Poll Results
The selection for August 2023 was:
The prompt for this snippet was:
This month’s story was Don’t Cry. This one focused on one of the secondary characters from my IBIS series. It didn’t exactly go the way I’d expected. Originally, I started with a few Story Forge cards, but I think in the end it was more influenced by the song I was listening to when I drew the cards than the cards themselves.
This month didn’t have a Patreon Pick story, I’m afraid. I caught up to the ones I’d already finished and the next two aren’t quite where I want them yet. My plan is to go back to one a month starting in October, so hopefully they’ll play along.
Getting Ready for NaNo
My last attempt at Camp NaNo didn’t go well. I really just didn’t care. I usually do better with NaNo proper, but I think next month I need to do some prep work. Since I’d like to focus on short stories again, that’ll be some planning of what I actually want to do with them. Also, I’d like to add an additional rebel element and work in some editing. I’ll have to figure out the conversion, since it’ll be a mix of both writing and editing, but I’ll come up with something.
I think that’s all for this month!
