Updates of Good

Hey—remember when I said I was going to update heaps and everything was going to be special and magical and full of wonder? Well, I didn't. Such is life. I'm in bed sick, so I'm updating, as is the custom. I haven't been laying dormant this whole time (since April, geez I'm lazy), however!

Today, the real test is figuring out how to attach pictures. Some days I feel really tech-savvy and like I can do something real fast and stand back and snap my fingers, like, "uh-huh, uh-huh, that's how it's done." (I'm totally that sassy in real life, by the way—ask my dog) Today is not one of those days. To be honest, I haven't even tried yet. That's the problem with reading: to me, this is all happening one word at a time and it's an adventure and who knows how it'll all turn out. To you, dear reader, it's a wall of text and you can look below and see what's happened. It's like Instant Transmission.

All right, enough philosophising.

I've been using my hardcore mappin' skillz and I've made a handful of maps. That's impressive for me. A lot of the stuff I've been making progress on is pretty invisible and pretty much consists of me making spreadsheets in Excel. I love Excel. I barely even scratch the surface of Excel's capabilities (the makers are surely horrified that I'm just using it to make lists of shit), but I love it. Since my last post I have made ... *checks RPG Maker and counts* eight maps. TWO HANDFULS. Want to see some screenshots? Rhetorical question.
