First things first, I'm sorry I've been away for so long. It's been kind of a hectic past few months (including a death in the family early in the month, although everything's back to normal around here), and updating this blog hasn't been a big priority. So, I bet all (most (some)) of you are wondering, "Healy, whatcha been up to since then?"

Well, as it turns out, not much, but there was something I was working on in the meantime: a drabble series for the Gravity Falls fandom called With Friends Like These, Who Needs Anomalies? It stars two characters who are very spoilery, each in their own different ways, so I'm reluctant to recommend it to folks who haven't seen the show yet, or even tell you who those characters are. (Seriously, don't click that link if you're not caught up on Gravity Falls.) But I can tell you it was pretty fun to work on! I wrote all twenty drabbles for the [livejournal.com profile] 31_days comm, and it was a lot of fun thinking up stories for the prompts. I had a lot of trouble in the later days of the project, though, when it seemed like I had used every single one of my good ideas. Like, originally I was planning on doing a story where character A makes fun of character B's comic book collection, but then I thought, "Wait, isn't this just like the one I did where A makes fun of B's record collection?" Even so, I wish I did more of them; you miss all of the one-shots you don't take, after all.

"So what are you doing next?" Well, the XYZZY Awards just put out the nominees for 2015. Looking at the list, I count about 15 games I haven't gotten to yet, and I think I can knock that number down before voting ends on the 14th. I'll be playing some of those games and writing them up on my blog for the next two weeks; let's give myself a Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule to start out, and see if I can increase it the next week.

I'm also thinking of making a game for the Tiny Utopias game jam, so look forward to that as well.

So I finally finished my Shufflecomp entry! While there's still some stuff I would love to add to it, I'm happy with how it is now. All there is to do now is just wait until the rest of the games get sorted (I was late and had to ask for an extension, so I'm sure there are others in the same boat).

In the meantime, I'm going to have to ease back into posting here again. I haven't even started my [livejournal.com profile] intoabar assignment, so maybe I'll start with that. And I should probably get around to doing that Kino's Journey thing I promised to do. Until next time, peeps!
