Making a List

Here's my checklist for The Dark of Hot Springs Island. There are 172 sections (totally a heartbreak rpg because: numbers), and I've got the first draft of 110 of those sections done, putting me at ~60% completion. The Field Guide had 103 sections.

The term section is pretty meaningless. It's a flexible and generic unit of content. It could indicate something that's several pages long, or something that's only a single paragraph. However it does indicate that only one *thing* is covered. Some things may be broken out a little too granularly (New Moon Parties taking 3 sections) and some may not be broken out enough (Dungeons/Bosses/Monsters).

"xx" means that I only have notes and bullet points. "Drafted" means I've got a sensible draft. Huzzah.

Someday it'll all be done, whatever that means, and I probably won't know what to do with myself. I think I'll have a party.

  1. Honestly, it sounds like you're just deep into the "This is actually Work." phase. Just keep plugging away at it, take breaks to avoid burnout, eat a burrito, drink a beer, and then keep writing. Delegate what you can.

    From what I've read so far, it's shaping up to be pretty excellent.

    1. True that. Burritos and beers are a damn good idea!
