It's been a week or so. I am still around. Go me.
one. life updates
(People's personal lives are my favourite thing about journals. Pls skip if that is not you.)
I am (a) no longer teaching (short answer: "I like teaching, I don't like being a teacher"), (b) not entirely true, I'm tutoring maths and English, and teaching creative writing to kids and teens some weekends, (c) I'm also doing temp bar work. Which would be fine if it weren't for people, (d) I'm also doing an MA in writing for young people starting September. Very much looking forward to meeting a load of weirdos like me and hanging out with them for a year. And writing, obvs. (e) Right now I'm using all my free time to develop games. My skill set is also very much in development. And as a writerly type I am focusing on Visual Novels...
two. online updates
Playing lots of indie games, visual novels, story rich games is proving great fun. Making them is even funnerer.
I recently started a blog, which could reasonably be described as a game blog for book people. It is on both wordpress and tumblr at the moment, (though I might give up on the wordpress side, if tumblr proves enough. Updating twice is a pain).this action will have consequences
three. dA things
I've written a response to FlashFictionLives
