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


Authorial Highlights

  • I am still considering what long form fiction thing I want to write.
  • GURPS Whatchamacallit will be submitted on the 8th of August. It is as good as I can get it.
  • The Fantasy Trip Quick Quest “The Gallery of Hands” is done and remains in the hands of Steve Jackson.
  • I’m wrote another article for Hexagram for The Fantasy Trip. That’s done. I’ve decided to just write a new article every 3-4 months and submit them.
  • GURPS Visage-22 is now being actively worked on. This one is good and is something I’ve worked on before. More later.
  • I’ve worked six months with Haptic writing for the company’s blog. It remains fun. I did four posts this month. August is the month we start getting serious about posting, social media, and more.
  • I currently have five outstanding contracts/jobs: a Hexagram article, a TFT Quick Quest, four blog posts for Haptic, GURPS Visage-22, and GURPS Whatchamacallit.
  • Total wordcount for July was 26,426 words. I was about 14,500 words below what I wanted. Ah well. Can’t win them all.
  • Total wordcount for August is I hope going to be 30,000 words.
