#WriteMonday Aug 27th

So today I decided to change #WriteFriday into #WriteMonday.  I think Monday will be a better day for me to consistently write an update post here (especially since that’s the day I’m updating Sustainably North).

Oh, and I also finally figured out how to make this blog a menu link on my Shauna Kosoris website! I’ve been wanting to do that for awhile now but had a hard time figuring it out; I’ve been looking for how to do it in a very complicated manner.  I was reading Austin Kleon‘s Show Your Work! 10 Ways to Share Your Creativity and Get Discovered, and it kind of inspired me to stop putting this off and figure it out.  It turned out to be super easy (you just make a custom menu – this WordPress Support article explains how).

I also changed the Samples page on shaunakosoris.com to better split up the sample scenes and character bios.  That was in preparation for adding the sample romantic scene I started working on to the page soon (I was hoping to get it edited and up a few weeks ago, but that failed to happen).  I also wanted to show that the bios that are on the site were for different genres (one set are science fiction, the other fantasy).

In really good news, today I actually did edit the sample romantic scene I wrote and post it on shaunakosoris.com! The scene is a short conversation that takes place in an unnamed restaurant, mainly between the female player character and a love interest. I added in a couple of branches in the dialogue because it’s good practice – writing branches can be a bit tough!  If you’d like to read it the sample, you can find it here. 🙂

In terms of Sustainably North, over the last few weeks I’ve written four posts: my second round up of interesting articles I’ve found on sustainability related topics, a quick post on a visit to a friend’s camp, a post about writing letters to Members of Parliament regarding Canada’s decision to purchase the Trans-Mountain Pipeline, and one that’s still forthcoming on a TED Talk a friend told me to watch (that’ll be up next Monday). The letter writing one was rather interesting to write because I’ve never written letters to politicians before; I had to research what to do (and then I actually wrote the letters).  I’m interested to see what kind of replies I will get (if any).

So how has your week been?

Updating!

Over the last little while, I’ve decided to revamp my website.  I am planning on going to a couple of game conferences this fall and want everything in top shape before I go.  I started by reactivating the blog Shauna’s World!.  I moved all of the photography blog posts from my website to there and will be posting photography-related things there.  I then moved most of the remaining posts to this blog.  An Acquaintance with Letters was originally started for a school project.  Once than project ended, I had no idea what to do with this blog.  But I liked the url, which prompted me to move everything over here.  So this is now going to be my writing blog.

You may be wondering why I decided to remove my blog from my personal website.  When I originally started that blog, I thought it would be a good way to keep all of my information centralized.  And while that’s true, I felt that the blog had no real purpose; most of my posts were photography-related (thanking people for buying prints from Red Bubble more often than not).  So I decided to split the photography and writing to see what happens. 

I also decided that my web page would be better served without a blog.  Rather than trying to keep that blog updated with relevant posts, I am going to keep it as a purely informational page.  I think it will be much stronger as a result.

So you’ll continue to see updates there if you visit.  And I hope you enjoy the new content here as well.
