I got some messages recently asking me about Project Untold, my Twitch show, my scratches, and my writing life in general, so I thought I'd give a quick update.

Project Untold: The visual novel and tools are on indefinite hold. I closed my Patreon for it last summer, because I was no longer actively working on it. I did as much work as I felt comfortable doing on my own, but I can't move ahead without a team. I've been working other contracts for the past six months, but those end next week, so maybe I'll pick up Untold again and see what I can do with it.

A little trimming and tightening and it'll be good to go!

Story Goes Here/A Million Monkeys: Oh boy. I don't know who all caught the disastrous first episode of the show, but it was not fun. A combo of tech issues and bad timing, the experience was so traumatizing for everyone involved that I won't try it again until I KNOW things will go smoothly. But I'll have more time when these contracts end, so maybe I'll give it another shot then.

Writing Life: I've been doing a LOT of writing. Incredibly, I wrote two novels last year. The novel I fountained out in under three months should never, ever see daylight, but the other one's not bad. I'm reworking it into something worthy of submission. I've also been a guest writer on a couple of games: Dead Scare and a TBA title. That was fun! And of course, I've been doing work for the Corcoran, which was inspiring and a genuine pleasure. I'm excited to see where I end up next. 

Scratches: Yes, my cat scratches have mostly healed. Thanks for asking! I have a noticeable scar above my lip, but it makes me look dangerous. In a good way. The only downside is that I might have to change my name to "Snake" or "Bruno" or something.

Wait...is that a downside?

Hmm. What would be a good name...?

As I mentioned on Twitter,  I've started reading a bunch of books on narrative design and gamewriting. I'll post brief summaries and recommendations of them when I'm done. I should have the first mini-review up in a week or two.

I still read every message that comes in, even if I mostly respond privately these days. So please don't heistate to drop me a line if there's something you want to know.
