OOC musings and chit-chat


#1

Starting is hard.
A great deal of American history reads like someone made it up.
“Type-written” or handwritten? I could use the handwriting practice, but also I like editing without starting all over again.
I am googling WWI a lot, my advertising is gonna get weird.


#2

You could always do the composition on computer and then write out the final version by hand.


#3

This is true. And then send the computer one directly to @IdiotSavant


#4

Preferably to the official email: innsmouthpapers@gmail.com


#5

I’m saving starting for after work tomorrow, going to compose on the computer and hand write it for mailing.

Now, where and how to start this story?


#7

Oh, I completely forgot to post this before, but is there anyone else out there who only has three contacts that would be interested in corresponding with Aeson? He’s really nice, honest!


#8

I’ve had a couple of other people express interest in joining, so I may be able to set you up with someone.

And as noted earlier, if anyone wants to declare someone to be a relative or old lover, please do so. These weren’t relationships I was really comfortable creating, but players are free to.


#9

Well, if he was part of the literary scene and I play a journalist there might be a slight connection…


#10

I honestly find that I write prose more fluently if I do it longhand on paper first. (It’s harder to get distracted by “Oh, I’ll just research this detail” rabbit holes.)


#11

I’ve received my first letters (as GM). So, things are officially underway!

Guess I’d better get thinking about that newspaper then.


#12

I fear I have done my writing hand a disservice in the length of the draft I have typed for myself. To copy it to paper will be a labour. And after that I have some extra to add to an addendum (purely for ‘hooks’ and future musing.s)


#13

:grimacing: Euh… How many pages are we talking about here?!


#14

It’s only about 1600 words (main letter). Not much for me to type at my speeds, but I have unfortunately neglected my hand writing and so I fear this shall be interesting.


#15

Well, that’s longer than I thought anyone would write. But I suspect it’ll be self-limiting :slight_smile:


#16

That’s…a lot of words. :astonished: Mine will be quite a bit shorter!


#17

I was going to go with a typewriter font but I ended up making a very nice template in google docs for Cyril’s letters. I even came up with a letterhead and a signature.

Now I just need to finish the first letter. I’m at 493 words so far, but I want to stretch it out a bit more.


#18

I think I’m coming down with something, hehehe, writing Cthonic letters while in a fever sounds like a good time :smiley:


#19

I’m looking forward to reading one of them! :crazy_face:


#20

It only took 2 hours (on sunday) to write out, and now it’s in the post! The game is a foot!


#21

It looks like the first letters have begun arriving.
