I am happy to say, however, that some excellent posts came out of this challenge. For any passerby who come this way, feel free to check out the links below for some of my proudest posts from April.
I've also been tackling a personal challenge to write a novel in one month. Here are my thoughts on novel-writing before and after this attempt.
Before: Basics of Writing
After: On Writing Novels
My primary interest and area of experience thus far is in writing gamebooks, not novels. Here are some posts for you gamebookers out there:
An original short gamebook, Mars 2112, to demonstrate what the genre is all about.
A post summarizing some of my thoughts on Gamebook Theory
And, last but not least, some silly Literary Jokes I made up.
If you like what you see and you want more gamebook goodness, allow me to refer you over to Stuart Lloyd's fine site on gamebooks, where he is doing a month chock-full of interviews with gamebook authors, illustrators and producers, along with many excellent articles about gamebooks (including an interview with me!). Of course, chances are good you came here from there, so this may be an unnecessary recommendation ;)
Next year, if I try this A-Z challenge again, I'm going to plan out in advance what the topic of each post will be, rather than trying to make it up as I go along. Lessons learned.
Thanks for dropping by, and rest assured, there will be more blogging goodness coming up. We will now return to our regularly scheduled programming.
