Co-piloting ChaosNova: "Seeker" behind-the-scenes (7)

I shall exploit the header space to boost the signal of our GM's Gofundme campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/blueberrycreekrecovery


Vaguely around Earth Occidental Standard Year 2014, the drift of interwebs lead my paths into collaboration course with Chaos Nova universe. I have since run a character in the forum-based space opera RPG (dispensing unsolicited advice about universe, life, and everything in the process), yapped along to countless online gaming sessions, and dug deep into the creative flow with editing, co-writing, and worldbuilding.

This is one of those posts where I show the snippets of me and Knux working on "Seeker" edits over Skype. Here are links to the previous posts in the series: one, two, three, four, five, six.

And here's a selection of snippets from the latest editing-discussion sessions.

This time we had some very practical formatting questions to sort out.

Also, some practical opinions.

More micro-excerpts.

When we get on with the next chapter, the draft-text of yesteryear causes some cringe.

At least, the world-flavour mini-excerpt still works.

In the end, we conclude, that the "clean text" that we're currently tackling, is - in fact - a solid second draft.

A playlist at the ChaosNovaWritingCorner channel features all such mini-moments; I'm also posting them on our Twitter account almost daily.

  1. 1 year later: "Seeker" is released (& even received some sneaky bugfixes while out there)!
    (Yes, I am indeed copy-pasting the same comment, because lazy :3 ... and now I'm also copy-pasting the lazy-note. Ha!)
