Talk to me, tell me stuff. What’s been going on in your life? Anything good? Anything bad? Need insight into the female mind? Just eat a really good slice of pizza? Tell me.
I’ll start. The player I created on The Show 18 is batting .135, because I fucking suck at this game, it turns out. I got it a couple days ago. I feel bad for him because I almost feel like he’s a real person and I’m just fucking up his shit. RIP. Pray for my fictional boy.
Call Juliet. My thing is I have so many freaking ideas floating through my head that I can’t write any of them.
Which makes it even worse because I have a massive (as in over 700,000 words) fanfiction that I’m 12 sections from finishing and I can’t make myself finish it because of all the ideas floating through my head.
Wow, that’s long. Holy cannoli.
Good luck getting some ideas out. I find sometimes it’s therepeutic to sit down and just quickly type out something really short, then delete it. That usually gets me a little more motivated.
Whoa that’s a ton of words. Congrats on the achievement so far!
I always have like a dozen or so stories on the go. When I get too far into my head, I always try to just get something written. Doesn’t matter what.
Back to Juliet’s topic - yeah, there’s something fun I’m playing with. I saw someone do an interactive story on GSS a few days ago, and I ended up looking up the software they used to make it, and it’s actually pretty do-able… so I’m writing this mess of an interactive right now. Hoping that there’ll be some way to post it here.
It’s super fuckin’ nerdy, but I’ve got a spreadsheet with all the different endings and how you get to em and everything.
No pizza for me last night. Gymnastics practice. I think I gotta add leg lifts to my gym routine - my lower abs are super weak and it’s impacting my pikes.
What’s The Show 18?
Oh yeah, I saw the interactive one too. Decent story. I’ve thought about it as well, but I decided… nah. Honestly, I write my stories for my own enjoyment, and I already know where I want it to go. I feel like it’d be too complicated to figure out all these different scenarios. And don’t worry… I don’t think you’re nerdy.
I wish I were in better shape, but I’ve been stuck with an IV in for the past few weeks and I haven’t been able to exercise. I get it off in a few more weeks, so once that happens I’m probably going to resume my gym routine. I’ve been losing weight recently, I went from 26 BMI to 23. I’m still not exactly slim, but hopefully I’m getting there.
It’s a baseball game for the PS4. You can do a bunch of different things on it, sim games and play as a manager of a team, create your own player, etc. I played as the Baltimore Orioles manager for a couple simulated seasons to see if I could get them a winning record, since this year they were considered the worst team in all of sports. I eventually succeeded, but to be fair I was playing fantasy mode, so I drafted fucking Babe Ruth and shit.
I’m actually really liking it cause it’s an excuse to write a bunch of little scenes.
So - baseball players aren’t my thing. What gets you fired up about them?
I have a genuine love for the sport, and I think it just sort of happened from there. I like attractive men, and baseball has lots of those, trust me. I like the uniforms too. Here are my favorite players
PS. Each word is a different link!
Baseball isn’t especially popular here in Europe, but certainly the guys who play baseball are usually very sexy. I wish more baseball and American football were played here hahahaha.
Oh, I know a tool for writing interactive stories, Twine. I tried to write an interactive story with this, but it’s hard to use because I don’t know HTML language.
