Trunk and Branches
Again, not much writing going on today, but lots of work. Finished another dream (and a little more) for H2, and spent some time working on a plot tree for a VN currently in the works. This is actually a piece that brewed in my mind some years ago, but I've decided to dust things off and start over again and make it better. The thing about writing trunk and branch style stories is that each of the branches needs to logically stem from the trunk, but must be unique in itself. In some ways, it's a great way to explore lots of possibilities. But you have to make sure each one is just as strong as the rest or it won't be satisfying.
