Chasing My Own Tail

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.
