Carpe Blogiem: Author, Patreon, and Blog Highlights – August 2023


Authorial Highlights

  • I am still considering what long form fiction thing I want to write.
  • I signed a big contract for something I can’t reveal. Not even giving it a nickname yet.
  • GURPS Whatchamacallit has been revealed to be “GURPS Meta-Tech” in the latest update of the GURPS News. It is in the hands of Steve Jackson Games to go through it’s first edit.
  • The Fantasy Trip Quick Quest “The Gallery of Hands” remains in the hands of Steve Jackson.
  • My article for Hexagram for The Fantasy Trip is in the hands of Steve Jackson Game
  • GURPS Visage-22 has been in my hands, I’ve done my part for it, and is now back with my co-author for some revisions. Then it’s back to me for editing and a final formatting check before we send it off no later than the end of October.
  • I’m now the social media manager for Haptic and while it still involves me working their blog up with goodies I’m also going to be working on their social media and doing community outreach. Really excited for this. I just got trained on their blogging platform and should be able to do all that on my own now to let the rest of the company concentrate on making the company software unbeatable.
  • I currently have five outstanding contracts: ???, a Hexagram article, a TFT Quick Quest, GURPS Visage-22, and GURPS Whatchamacallit aka GURPS Meta-Tech.
  • Total wordcount for August was 33,933 words – I met my goal even though the writing was a bit sporadic. To much random research and non-writing so I can write work.
  • I’m guessing about 35,000 words for September.
