Shattered, in a good way

Wow, what a marathon day.

Started with a 10 hour round trip, finished with a ten hour proofing session. . .

Today was cool because I managed to get the entirety of ‘The Aegis Saga – Blood’ out for final beta-testing.

That means submission to Choice of Games for publishing under their Choice of Games label might not be too far off. So when I say I feel shattered in a good way, I mean it feels like I’m a little closer to getting this thing published.

It feels like the journey’s been pretty epic so far, and I’ve got to say – writing is one of the most enjoyable things in my life right now (after my partner and dogs of course, but that goes without saying ; )

Stuff I’ve enjoyed the most:

  • the COG forum community. They’re just great. I’ve never met so many people willing to give so much time and support to people trying to write choicescript.
  • the times in between. For some reason a lot of ideas seem to come to me when I’m out walking or doing something else that clears my mind.
  • growing my confidence (let’s face it, saying that you’re trying to write your first story feels a bit like being a dog that’s owning up to a big mistake on the carpet)
  • the fun of writing the world of Eris (it just feels awesome all the time)
