Authorial Highlights

  • I am still considering what long form fiction thing I want to write.
  • GURPS Meta-Tech” aka GURPS Whatchamacallit  is back with me to revise and get in shape for playtest. Revision is currently sitting at the 5% mark. My goal is to get it all done in a week so it can be submitted and we can call for a playtest.
  • 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 Games after I did some mild revisions and resubmitted it. Steve seemed please with the contents.
  • GURPS Monster Hunters Adventure: The Face of Fire” aka GURPS Visage-22 is back with me and my co-author and we’ll be revising that after I finish GURPS Meta-Tech.
  • Haptic hit all the goals set except for one. Next month, we’ll do even better.
  • I currently have four outstanding contracts: a Hexagram article, a TFT Quick Quest, GURPS Monster Hunters Adventure: The Face of Fire, and GURPS Meta-Tech.
  • Total wordcount for November was 43,901 words – I met my revised goal of 10,000 words by almost quintuple.
  • I canceled my NaNoWriMo this year. I’m glad I did as I had a ton of work hit me right in the beginning of the month. I’m still going to write a novel, it just won’t be a nano.
