I went to the zoo yesterday, but they only had one animal there, and that was just a dog... It was a shih tzu. ^_^

Featured Story The Price of Freedom: Innocence Lost

,

You are ten years old when you first feel the weight of shackles around your wrists. In a matter of hours, your whole world is turned upside down as you and your brother are dragged away from your home in Greece to work as slaves in the Roman Empire. Now you must struggle for survival. Every decision you make will affect your future. Your life, the life of your brother and the lives of your friends are in your hands.

Begin your journey as a child, and make heartbreaking choices that will shape the adult you will become. But be careful. An act of kindness might come back to haunt you, and a thoughtless word could earn you some powerful enemies. A split second decision will determine who lives and who dies. Will you sell your soul to win your freedom, or sacrifice everything for the people you love? Will you even live long enough to see the sun rise?

Aphrodite's Orphan
unpublished , coauthor

A teenage girl living on a Venus out of 1930's Pulp Science Fiction must search the planet and other worlds with her robot tutor to find the killers of her parents.

This is done in the format of an Interactive Novel, so it's pretty far removed from the Dungeon Crawl format. The protagonist is not a blank slate but has her own personality, so the story-game's got a role-playing format like you'd find in TSR Hobbies' old Endless Quest books. Characters have arcs and will change based on your decisions.

While it uses the tropes and conventions of Science Fiction, I think its outdated vision of the solar system makes it more a work of Fantasy or Science Fantasy than straight Science Fiction.

In addition to the Pulp SF qualities, this also contains elements of Film Noir and its literary equivalent, Roman Noir-- like if Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon were re-imagined by James M. Cain or Raymond Chandler.


Gotta Catch Em All

Murder at the Manor
unpublished

Four mysteries in one. A man has been murdered in his stately home in the country, and you have only four suspects. Can you figure out who the killer is? It could be anyone... Literally. Because the killer is chosen at random at the beginning of every game.

Note: This game was originally made for a competition put together by Morgan R, where writers had to make the best game they could in a day. Unfortunately, I didn't get the game finished in time, so never got around to publishing it, but I stumbled across it a few years later and decided it was worth finishing. So here it is, hope you enjoy ^_^

Hi guys. Really wish I had some better news but I'm afraid I've gotten a lot worse and may need to go into hospital for awhile. I've temporarily shut down my patreon page because I don't know how long I might be gone for and I obviously don't want people to be charged while I'm away.

Just want to thank everyone for being so kind to me and really hope I'm back soon and feeling a lot better and ready to start writing again.


Insomnia on 11/2/2019 6:35:08 PM

Thanks Ogre. When I finally do get better, I'll come back and let everyone know. ^_^


Insomnia on 11/2/2019 6:33:50 PM

Thank you both. Yeah, definitely something that's beyond any advice that anyone can give and definitely the symptom of a larger problem. The trouble is that, at this point, I don't actually know what the problem is, so I don't know how to fix it. Probably the result of a bunch of different things. Either way, I think it's just a case of waiting for the medication to do what it's supposed to do, and if the dosage/medication is wrong, then switch it up until it starts working.

Either way, thank you everyone for being so kind and supportive. There isn't anything anyone can do, but I'm really grateful for all the support you've been giving me. It really means a lot.


Insomnia on 11/2/2019 4:49:23 PM

Nothing new to add except that I've gotten worse rather than better. The doctor has changed around my pills but while the sleeping tablets do make me sleep for a little while, the combination of pills I'm on seems to make me more tired, not less. I'm basically a zombie right now.

I've put patreon on pause last month because since the insomnia hit, I've not been able to get any writing done and I obviously don't want to charge people while I'm not writing. Will probably put it on pause next month too, but will wait closer to the end of the month incase I miraculously get better and get a whole bunch of writing done.

Now for my crazy person rant of the day, which is that, since the insomnia hit, I've become extremely depressed, anxious and emotional (it's actually worse than it was last time, if that's possible to believe. Last time I was a lot more manic. Felt kind of like being bi-polar, so I was very up and down. This time it's just down.) Either way, looking through threads on CYS has made me feel super bad and guilty all the time. I keep writing out several paragraph long rants and then deleting them because I realize how crazy they are. (I know this post makes me sound crazy enough, but it's actually really, really tame compared to the rants I typed out before.)

I don't know what to say now. This is another part where I had a big paragraph typed out and then deleted it because it was stupid and self-rightous and crazy, but I guess all I want to say is that the world is a shitty, shitty place and everybody is going through their own horrible shit. I know I've dealt with enough shit of my own, but then some people have been through shit that's more horrible than I can even imagine. (I went to a SOBS meeting on Tuesday (Survivors Of Berevement by Suicide) and there was one woman at the meeting who had a husband and three sons. One of her sons committed suicide and following that, both her husband and another one of her sons committed suicide within the next 18 months. I have no idea how the fuck a person can go on when life is that unfair.)

Anyway, most people keep all the shit they've been through bottled up and don't even talk about it. I don't even know what I'm saying. I guess what I'm saying is that everybody can make the world a better place if we all were a bit kinder to one another (which is pretty rich coming from me, but still.) Not sure why I'm saying this exactly except that my brain is completely fucked up. Hopefully I'll be back to normal soon and not talking like a crazy person and not typing out several paragraph long rants that I just end up deleting. Either way, I'll post this one because reading through it all, it is by far the least crazy. :p


Insomnia on 10/15/2019 4:35:02 AM

... Yeah, it's not getting better. I think it must be at least 10 days since I slept. Maybe more, I can't really remember anything. It feels like it's been going on forever.

My doctor put me on Diazepam, and that seems to help a lot with the anxiety and calms me down a lot... But still, I just can't sleep at all. Nothing seems to work... Not sure why I'm saying this because I think that everything's already been suggested but... Yeah... I just really need sleep. :'(


Insomnia on 10/12/2019 3:55:11 AM

Well, it's a suggestion at least. :p

The only trouble with that is that being sleepy/exhausted doesn't actually have any effect on my ability to sleep. I'm already exhausted. :'(


Insomnia on 10/12/2019 3:42:43 AM

I think I kind of want to focus on words though, because then my brain is thinking about the story instead of other things that make me anxious.


Insomnia on 10/11/2019 2:41:48 PM

Yeah, it's just so hard to relax because of the anxiety.


Insomnia on 10/11/2019 2:41:03 PM

I don't know. I'm told that sleeping pills can be addictive and I don't want to get addicted to them. :(


Insomnia on 10/11/2019 2:39:53 PM

But it shouldn't be hard though. I love sleeping! I can usually sleep for hours and hours.
