Farmerbob posted a topic in Wood ScrapsWell, I've played a grand total of about 12 hours of MMO games in the last two months. As opposed to the 8-16 hours per day that I would put in before. So what have I done with that time? A little original fiction, "Symbiote". 42 chapters in about 2.5 months, for somewhere around 3-4k words per chapter. No, I'm not really bothering to keep track of word count, though I have set a minimum word count per chapter at 3000 as an almost-never-broken rule. http://farmerbob1.wordpress.com/ I loved crafting in Wurm. I love crafting an entire universe more. Chances are at this point that MMO's are a part of my past, permanently. I'll still piddle around with them every now and then, but my creative urges are very well satisfied by writing Stop by, feel free to throw fruit if you find anything blatantly broken. There are continuity things in book 1 that haven't been cleaned up - I'm up to chapter 1.9 in the final pass editing (will be editing 1.10 today) So what's the story about: One Day, Bob, a random middle aged guy, starts talking to himself and there are two personalities in the conversation. It doesn't take him long to prove that it's not the leftover shrimp lo mein, or a stroke - there really is someone else in his head. He and his symbiote try to make sense of the world, but fail pretty spectacularly at figuring things out despite being reasonably smart because they simply don't know enough to understand what is going on. After a while, most of the basics are answered, but Bob begins to get into a really bad headspace with some of the things he's forced to do. Science Fiction. Present day / near future.
