So I tried getting back into the superheroine story I’d started before switching directions onto the recently-released Ninja Girls story… and I’m still stuck on where to take the story.
The real question, though, is did I write myself into a hole, or am I just having a difficult time focusing right now? I thought I’d distract myself by playing with the Twine program and possibly create some little choose-your-own-adventure type content for the site. A nice thought, right?
Here’s the problem: my wife and I are avid board gamers, and I’m a computer programmer for my day job, so I can’t just leave well enough alone. So far, I’ve implemented both combat and torture models, loosely based on the old TSR Marvel Super Heroes FASERIP system.
Additionally, I’ve come up with a new villainess for our heroines that seems to be occupying my brain right now. Add that to the various life happenings, and it seems like I’m spending a lot of energy and getting nowhere.
The goal for this year was to average at least one story per month, and I’m already behind one. I’m hoping spring settles down a bit and the warmer weather helps focus my brain.
As always, thoughts and suggestions are welcome.
