Just wanting to check with everyone who's signed up for the challenge, since we're about midway through. So! How's your site coming along? How's the process being like?

I know that for me it's been very different than any site I've made before. I signed up with The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and I've been writing essays about different aspects of the world and what I find interesting about it. The biggest struggle has been finding the threads that hold the entire thing together - the main themes that I think are important to tackle and that can frame the entire project in a way that's hopefully more coherent than just disjointedly rambling about everything everywhere, lol. I think I'm finally getting somewhere - outlining everything down neatly and forcing myself to place topics in this or that bucket has helped me see what the buckets even are - but wow, this has been very different indeed. Quite an adventure.

What about you?

[edit: just so you know, this topic is completely informal and motivated by my own curiosity and wanting to talk about how are our sites coming along, not anything OFFICIAL or anything of the sort XD]

I've not worked on mine a whole lot despite having lots of ideas, but then again my productivity this month has been focused more on getting smaller projects done and getting them off my mind. nope not procrastinating at all what are you talking about

Planning to do the bulk of the work in April and then polish until time to release it in June. :)

Unfortunately I haven't even started on mine yet. I have too many things on the go right now and I seem to be more interested in playing video games than actually working on websites. Hopefully I'll find time to work on it soon. *fingers crossed*

Between the last couple of days I'm almost done with a big page! :D I haven't really had much time to work on this since I've been sick and then busy trying to catch up with everything that I had to put off in that time, but now I think it's finally starting to come together. I'm not sure how many pages I'll manage to have before the end of the challenge, but, hey. I guess at least two? XD

@dubs: I feel that! I've been delayed too (waiting to hear back from job interview and feeling paralyzed). BUT YAY NEW PAGE! :D

@Saya: totally understandable!! Moving is much more important :)

Thanks to a lot of kind assistance from Robin and Lethe, I wrote my FF8 magic essays, then rewrote them. Those essays are complete, though the site is not.

Regarding your issue about the connective tissue: for me, I had such trouble with my final essay, about science fiction versus fantasy. My resolution came for me by thinking about why I was writing these essays on what was otherwise a character shrine, and I thought about how a lot of scifi and fantasy make the protagonists have a knowledge base or a feature that is really important to how that world operates ... and Quistis doesn't. And part of my motivation for shrining her is because she is a supporting character who had such promise that never pays off, in the story or otherwise, and feeling so angry about that. So I connected that: to acquaint you with the character, let me tell you what's important about the world, so that you notice that she doesn't have much to do with it.

That connection sounded more worthwhile before I wrote this post. >>
