THE SHORT VERSION:
I'm writing a new choose-your-own-adventure disaster story; it'll be split up into three or four short installments and will include some illustrations and music.
THE LONG VERSION:
I didn't mean for it to be so long before I got to posting another story, but here we are, more than half-a-year after "Just Short of the Dead" ended, and still nothing. I was working really hard on planning a non-apocalyptic story, but I got caught in a rut whilst designing the plot, which meant I wasn't writing anything at all. A few weeks ago, I finally decided that I had to write something if I was going to grow at all, so I put that other story on hold and started a new disaster series (my obvious comfort zone), and split it into short parts (chapters) that'd be easy for me to handle in short periods of time. I've got a general plot-line down and almost the whole first chapter written up, along with a few simple illustrations to add a little visual interest every few pages. Since the parts are short, there are less choices, but a denser population of consequences, allowing me to experiment with more long-lasting effects than ever before.
I won't give too many details just yet, but the story revolves around a questionably natural disaster in the vicinity of southern California. I wanted to give you swell folks a fair heads-up so that any of you who are interested can stay tuned in the following month-or-so. I plan to have the first chapter out before I move (at the end of the month), but we'll see how that works out.
