Here I sit, on the morning of March 1, with no posted update.  Nope, I didn't win CreMo.  I'm a bit upset about it, but not overly depressed.  I wanted to finish up my turn at the BRRL, but knew that I would basically have three weeks in the month to do so.  Nevermind that BRRL updates should have been posted every 2 weeks or so and I've had this generation for close to six months now.  I actually debated long and hard about whether to try it at all, and finally decided to participate at the very end.  I'm glad that I only set BRRL as my goal instead of the delusional pace I was thinking of.  Those are projects best saved for later. :-) 

The good news is that the final chapter should be done this week.  I have 127 slides written, 90 of them with pictures, so all I have left is three more major scenes before I can send it to proof-reading.  I had a horrible time with this chapter and writer's block.  There is a lot of time covered in the chapter and it was difficult to try to come up with ways to not make it all about birthdays.  I also didn't want to draw it out into two chapters.  Characterization is also one of the parts of storytelling that I find difficult and I kind of did myself in by having so many characters to work with.  I have a clear picture of them all in my mind, but translating that to the story is always hard for me.  I had marathon sessions of playing and writing on Saturday, Sunday and last night, but for some reason, it seems like I got an extra dose of sleepy sand from Mr. Sandman and just could not stay awake.


This was a great idea and actually really fun and I hope that it continues next year. 

Now, if we could institute a cc cull every six months...

Like Widget and Pen say, all progress is good, especially if you had writer's block. Well done. :D
