Creative Journey: Luxe System Act II, Unfocused but Outlining

Creative Journal #2

I think the bad night of sleep on Sunday has really set me back. I’m double tired today compared to yesterday BUT I made progress on Luxe so rather than going on about my bad sleep, lets talk about the story.

I’ve made it through the outline for act one and have started act II.

I didn’t want to get stuck in one region of the trade moon so I’m moving the story to a different area. I am also going to introduce the concept that corporations are going to be exploring the solar system. Actually……as I write this…..I have yet to define who the people are on the trade moon, at least as far as who they are working for. I guess the rough idea is they are paying the different gov’ts of the Planet Luxe to give them space and working with the aliens are who are moving goods and tourists in and out of the trade hub.

I don’t actually know what the volume of stuff and people that moves through the hub, but I don’t think that matters just yet.

I guess I am not too concerned about questions of that detail as I will answer them once I get to the writing portion.

That’s it for tonight, I’m having a hard time focusing on anything for more than 5 min. I feel like I know where I want this first Luxe story to go and I just don’t have the energy tonight to get the outline farther than I already have. Time to make some super short bullet point reminders and put this one down for the night.

Note of personal improvement: I did get to my French lessons today for the first time in 5 days. No coding which is bad but I have to be realistic about the energy levels I have when I get home.

Til next time!

  1. Super impressed with how you’re going so far on this. Hope you can keep it up! I know all to well how hard it can be to start working on a project at the end of a long day. I find it helps to have the stuff you want to work on pre-setup if possible so that there are less steps to take for you to actually get started (laptop opened ready to go, models & paints out and waiting, etc).

  2. Thank you! I have my laptop open on the dinner table all day so when I get home it is there to be used. So far so good as keeping up with it is concerned. My goal at this point it to get this to a first draft. I can tell after finishing 2/3rd of the outline there is going to be a lot of writing….hahahaha, i know its a book and that goes without saying. But I still feel like an impostor to this kind of project but I need a creative outlet and since making games for this universe will take a VERY long time, I want to try my hand at writing a book…….maybe more? I’m glad you are along for the ride! thanks again for the comment!!!
