Hello, players. I know the people who follow my "Just Short of the Dead" interactive story are limited, especially with the Telltale-like wait-times between episodes, but I wanted to let you all know that I've been making some great progress with "Episode Three". I've been experimenting with story-points, adding, scrapping, and rewriting until my fingers have wept with blood (sans the blood). The overarching story-arch is set, but there are lots of little things that get tweaked along the way. This is finally the part where we learn more about main character Kerry's past, so stay tuned for that. Rest assured, the episode is coming along quite smoothly, and it's shaping up to be the longest and most exciting thus far.
Thanks to all the players who made this journey possible with their support. When I reread the two parts I've released so far, I noticed a pretty large gap between the quality of the first and second episodes. Despite that, however, "Episode One" has almost 1000 plays as of today, and "Episode Two" is nearing 400. Numbers like those could make a young (wannabe)writer cry with glee, and they give me the strength to get up and keep writing. I'll keep updates coming as the episode shapes up!
