  • 2016 Book Blitz - June: Spiral Island 3
    Oh yeah, I forgot to make this entry. I made the image for it and then forgot to do the rest. Not much to say here, really. Fell short of the goal, and spent the month bac
  • 2016 Book Blitz - April: Spiral Island 2
    Well, as it's clear to see here, I utterly failed. Didn't even make 50k, the NaNoWriMo goal for a month. But, as you can see, at the first half of the month I had a pretty
  • 2016 Book Blitz - February: Spiral Island 1
    Okay, so I very clearly failed here. But for reasons. Not necessarily  good  reason, but reason. This was, perhaps, the hardest of all of the books I'll be writing this ye
  • 2016: The Year I Write 7 Books
    It's been four years now since I started doing NaNoWriMo. In that time I've written five books. Three which were completed, two which were not, and one of which was writte
  • NaNoWriMo IV: Week 1 Report
    End of week one for NaNoWriMo. My word count for the end of Friday was 11613 words, which is ahead of the NaNoWriMo goal, but behind my own goal of 75k words, which I sett
  • Reflow Problem
    I never realized how hard it must be to write a novelization of a video game until I started doing one. So sometime back  I had started working on a novelization of Spiral
  • (Very) Slowly Moving Forward
    So at this point I'm going to have to get a new car. The other day I went to drive up to Idaho for Thanksgiving and my poor 95 Sable  wouldn't shift into 3rd (non-OD Freew
  • Smooth Letters
    Made a minor correction to The Pocketwatch, while reading through it and noticing that it said Medea lives in Kyushu. I meant Honshu, the main island.  Way back in high sc
  • Voynich Manuscript
    Next part of The Pocketwatch is up, Clues . I had wanted to do some stuff in the future before moving on, but I could not think of anything that wouldn't just drag the sto
  • Branching
    At the hospital currently, as my father has had an appendectomy. They were able to do it fine, but it was apparently in a pretty bad state then so its a good thing he didn
  • Filled Gaps
    Interesting, there were no archive pages for the last like six months. Well, that is resolved now. I finally put up another piece of The Pocketwatch . I actually pretty mu
  • More Meat, Less Filling
    I had mentioned last month  that I had gotten into a rut as I was approaching the last part of the Spiral Island script, because I wasn't sure how I wanted some things to
  • XML Conversion
    Despite how handy I found XmlSerializer  to be, it is a lot harder to stage it to automatically create an XML file in the format that the XNA Content Processor wants thing
  • Content Control
    One of the things that's concerned me for a while is how much information to present in Spiral Island. There's a lot of backstory, but most of it isn't relevant to the act
  • Incorrect Diagnosis
    As it turns out, the Black Death was in fact Bubonic Plague, and not Smallpox. I don't know what I was thinking when I thought otherwise.  More on that later.
  • The Ad Is A Spy
    Unlike most people on the internet, I understand the importance of advertising revenue for a website, and I don't use AdBlock. I don't mind seeing an ad, and sometimes the

    Then again, I could always change my mind. It really was time I got the renewed AnacondaSoftware site uploaded, since it had been sitting pretty much done for a month now.
  • Split Minds
    Well, the AC still isn't fixed, but it is somewhat cooler today outside so the temperature's not so bad. I was going to go work from the library, but I woke up too late to

    As I said I would, I have put up a few Skewed updates this week. With a Dungeons and Dragons campaign taking up a majoriy of this week, completely throwing my sleep schedu
  • Low Bandwidth
    Been working on trying to get the rough draft of the main script for Spiral Island done by the end of this week, probably not going to happen though. My main problem with
  • The Story So Far
    So I realize, as I'm writing up the script for Spiral Island, that there's a LOT more to what's going on then what is presented in-game. Granted, one of my main points for
  • Progressive Generation
    So it's been over a week since I last posted on here, longest for a while. I've been mostly busy with steady progress at Spiral Island. I think I'll have all the framework
  • XML Reversion
    Back some time ago , when I was doing major work on Castle Tilemap Editor, I had posted that I didn't like XML, for various reason, although the one I primarily was compla
  • Temporal Thoughts Alike
    Since Spiral Island and some of my other titles are RPGs, one of the things I reference to sometimes for ideas is the OGL-licensed System Reference Document , a subset of
  • Time off of Work to Work
    So, as I mentioned last time, I took two days off to get some work done, with some specific goals. I managed to get an update to Skewed out finally, after almost 2 months
  • Re-sRc
    Over a year ago , I spoke some of my new alternate alias, sRc. At the time, as I mentioned, I needed a new alias to use in Skewed, as I was distancing myself from The Anac
  • Renewed Resolve
    So it's the end of the year again, once again time to reflect on the past year and make resolutions for the next. Overall the biggest shift for the last year of course is
  • Failed Plans
    I had mentioned at the beginning of the month I was going to try and focus on Skewed this month. Unfortunately I couldn't get into the groove of working on that, and inste
  • 410
    I rarely ever delete files. I have collections of files that I've migrated from older machines, some for a very long time. The reason being is I never now if I will need s
  • Dawn Over a New World
    I'm rather amused that I managed to come up with 3 different arcticles named in the format of the Holders series in such a short span of time. That was an unexpected arran
  • Finite Infinity - Final Thoughts
    So that wraps up everything for the Ties to Infinity story. When PivotX final is released I'll put up some of the written portions I have in my two documents on here, but
  • Signs of Progress
    I am a prototype junkie. I love work in progress. I love demo tapes for music, early shots of movies or TV shows, and test builds and betas of video games and other softwa
  • Finite Infinity - Triad Rule
    Apparently font kerning and leading differences exist between WordPerfect and OpenOffice, because I remember these documents having more pages in the past. I noticed the s
  • Pronounced
    English is a rather strange language. It is filled with many different language influences, and it is full of conflicting grammatical rules. It is hard to find any good co
  • Cruise Control
    There's a point in which things simply fall into place. The point where you no longer are writing a story, natural progression is allowing the story to write itself. You s
  • Naming Conventions: Dry Well
    I resort to using those generic names because I have so much difficulty coming up with names for characters. In cases where I do have names for specific charactes, I usual
  • Naming Conventions: Self-Referencing
    I am not very good with names. I never have been, even my close friends I'll cycle through different names until I get the correct one. It's something my father and grandm

    5 year High School reunion in an hour or so. I had meant to get a couple other entries in between the Spiral Island introduction posts, but my tasks this week at work prev

    Spiral Island started out using the the three characters I had in Leviathan : Amy Carter, Marcus Tilden, and Queen Sarissa Croshid. RPG Maker 95 let me have up to 12 chara
  • Version One - Project Leviathan
    As I mentioned in the last entry, I wanted to give an introduction to the Spiral Island storyline. I figure I'll start this off here by telling how I have gotten to this p

    I had a few things I wanted to talk about that I haven't had time to do the last few days, but for the life of me I can't remember them at the moment. I have a pretty bad
  • Timeless Archive
    One of the unfortunate things about the internet is its ever shifting nature. Allows for always expanding amounts of information, but old information gets lost, possibly f

    Since I accidentally dropped it on the Gentoo forums, and it's a part of my Steam tag, I guess I'll explain my alias name 'sRc'. To do that, however, requires some explana
