On Over-arcing Storylines


Ever get to that point where you are wee bit stuck on how to organize and lay out the story you want to tell (especially if you’ve a lot of tangents, concepts, and snippets to try to bring together)?

Check out Dan Harmon’s (Rick & Morty) 8-step plot circle. A very good resource especially when you find your focused on one tree when you need to look at the whole forest. Enjoy!

Characters (update)

Moving into the character concept development phase and it’s been going pretty well. Starting to see how the players will take to the stage and height differences. E.g. where does someone’s elbow line up next to another character.

Also, nice excursion to a local Japanese tea house will get the creative hubbub roaring. Highlights included Pu erh, Lapsang Suchong, and a nice matcha. Yes, that’s three teapots going at once.
