So, the Day Before Camp NaNo…

…after finishing Dragon Age twice and starting to catch up on my neglected revision, I decided to participate in July. To finish Lost Among Shadows rather than to write something new. Well, I did all that about a week or so ago. Made some decent progress on Lost, too and made the whole series new covers.Then today, I ventured into the same store that got me into this mess, to begin with, and…bought Dragon Age II. So, now I’m relying on that discipline, I misplaced at the start of June, to get me back on track.

At least, I’ve no plans of buying Inquisition. I don’t think my laptop would survive that one.

The Laws of Time Don’t Apply in Morson

I’ve no idea how I managed to miss this for so  long, but Lost Among Shadow has a massive time inconsistency right at the beginning. Chapter I takes place in the early evening of one day. Then Chapter II takes place late morning that same day and is followed by III that night. IV happens the day after, but V takes place in the evening of the first day again…

Fortunately, this is easy enough to fix by moving them around, but it’s astonishing  how completely I missed this when reading through it. And that was with a month’s break from the story.Had  I gone right into revision, I probably wouldn’t have caught it at all and that’s a sobering thought.

I had another of these inconsistencies further into the story, but that one, I caught early on.

I’m Such a Genius…

After finishing the scenes I wanted to add to Lost Among Shadows,  I took myself to the gaming section of a local store. I figured they might have Civ V: Brave New World for less than Steam (that one would cost me more than I paid for the Gold Edition). They didn’t. So, because I’m not already slow enough when it comes to revision, I picked up Dragon Age Origins Ultimate edition, instead. Took me almost a week to get back to Lost after that…

I did, however, manage to finish revisions on the first chapter and I wrote about 1k words of a novelette that will be useless until I bring Ash Manor to a conclusion.
