I’ve just posted the latest update to Alayne’s Story over on the WoW-Europe RP forum. This week is a continuation of the events begun last week. The Scarlet Harbor arc is one of the last (I promise) arcs before the events that culminate in the storming of Icecrown Citadel.
I’m working a lot to get this finished before Cataclysm comes out so I’ll have plenty of time to edit and rewrite parts of it that are still pretty rough.
And now, back to work.
I’ve just posted the latest update to Alayne’s Story over on the WoW-Europe RP forums. This week’s update leads the characters into Jotunheim and begins what I promise is the last arc you’ll ever see of Alayne’s internal development.
I’d actually had a long argument with myself over how to do this with her. Alayne’s an…interesting character. If she were a real person, she’d probably be institutionalized with PTSD, depression, and multiple personality disorder. That’s part of the thrill of writing her story. She’s been through a lot of trauma and has never stopped to allow herself to process it. It’s something that the others have noticed in passing but, as there are hardly schools of psychology in Azeroth, they don’t know the right way to handle this. So, where she would be laying on a couch once a week talking with a shrink in our world, in the world of Warcraft, she’s got to resolve these things through other methods…
…and, this time, those “other methods” are going to cause her problems. No, I’m not going to spoil it for you. Let’s just say that there’s a reason for this to happen and you’ll find it out as you read along in later updates.
And now, back to work!
I’ve just posted the latest update to Alayne’s Story over on the WoW-Europe RP forum. This week’s update takes us the rest of the way through the Trial of the Crusader event and starts the next of three arcs which will put us in Icecrown Citadel.
In related news, this week’s update is a little shorter than normal. Why? Because I had to scrap the last seventeen pages I had done over the past two weeks. Now, granted, in my writing, I’m writing 20 – 30 pages ahead of what I post. Each week, I post between 4 – 7 pages on average. But, having to scrap 17 pages cuts into my buffer a good bit.
Luckily, the new tact I took enabled me to crank out 5 pages in 3 days. I’m hoping to maintain that level of momentum for a while but it’s going to be tricky. Especially considering that work is getting downright insane lately.
And, speaking of that, I ought to get back to work.
…and, sometimes, I hate my job. But more on that later.
Anyhow: I’ve just posted the latest update to Alayne’s Story over on the WoW-Europe RP forum. This week’s update takes us mid-way through the Trial of the Crusader raid event.
And now, back to work. Hopefully the next few weeks will not be as absolutely insane as the past month has been and I’ll actually have time to work more on my stories. ><
