December 5th, 2020 – 801

Tomorrow TWO will hit 30,000 words, which is pretty neat. the story is working well right now, though I do have to say handwriting really slows me down. I mean, yes of course it does, that’s the point, I wanted that for this draft, but I think that there’s an unseen cost to doing a book this way. It takes more willpower, and I’m not sure it’s the best idea when I’m in a bad place. Still I know that now.

I’m replying the Monkey Island games, on the 5th part of 5 – Tales – and man, this game is underrated. LeChuck’s revenge will always be my favourite but there was a moment in this last part where Insult Sword Fighting is used as a sublime narrative tool, and it might be one of my favourite bits of writing in a video game, maybe ever. So that’s neat.
