Running to Stand Still

Kyle: Writing

Rewrite. Rewrite. Rewrite. While I finished another trio of flash fictions told from different perspectives (what I call a triplet) to add to my book-length collection, most of this week had me editing prior work. I’m hoping the axiom that rewriting is writing holds true. If it does, I did a lot of work this past week. If not, I’ll have to do better this upcoming week.

I also focused more on submitting. There are a few stories I have yet to submit to journals and some of them I think will find a home quickly—but I tend to be shocked as to which stories get picked up quickly and which ones don’t. I never said I was a good judge of my work.

Kyle: Games

Wow. I didn’t do a lot with my tabletop games this week. Mostly I polished a bunch of games that I’m preparing to submit early next year. I’d like to get some more blind play tests in (sending games out and having players learn the game by reading what I hope a clearly written rules) and finish Nuclear Harvest—or at least get it close to done sometime before the end of the year.

That’s all I have for this week. We’ll be back tomorrow and the rest of the tomorrows this week with some new writeups. Be kind to one another and stay geeky.
